based Jeff Dayton band which also worked as Glen Campbell's
back-up band. Over the last eight years Ron has toured with
Glen all over the United States and in England. A veteran of

an accomplished songwriter, winning an award from the state
for his song "Arizona." He has also had a successful career
as an actor, with work in several motion pictures, Television,

Buffalo Rick's association with several western TV & motion
