Successfully blending the sounds of jazz blues and swing, Gerald Ross has created a guitar style uniquely his own. Whether he is playing jazz standards, popular favorites, delta and urban blues, Tin Pan Alley melodies, New Orleans rhythms or boogie woogie, it's bound to be a delightful surprise to any listener. He has the rare ability to transmit an infectious good humor to his audience through a tasteful combination of outstanding instrumental talent and an eclectic repertoire. An experienced musician, Gerald Ross is equally at home in a concert hall or on a small club stage.
He has performed in concert with Bonnie Raitt, Arlo Guthrie, Doc Watson, Johnny Gimble, Riders In The Sky, Brownie McGhee, Hot Rize and many other nationally known artists.
Gerald is the winner of the 1993 WEMU Jazz Competition (solo artist category). Other radio work includes appearances on National Public Radio's 'A Prairie Home Companion' with Garrison Keillor.
When the mood strikes him, he has been known to pick up a mandolin, bass, Hawaiian Steel Guitar (he is on the Board of Directors of the Hawaiian Steel Guitar Association), banjo, harmonica, Cajun accordion and ukulele. A ukulele is not a toy.
