Ballroom Dancing is alive and well thanks to recordings of bands like Ron Richards Rhythm Kings providing correct dance tempo while combining broad listening appeal. Even the younger set is discovering the music, the fun and pleasure of actually holding a partner in their arms. Personnel: Leader Ron Richards (saxophones, violin), Mick McKimm (trumpet), Brian Vosti (piano), Denis Tucker (bass guitar, vocal), Ron Gilbee (rhythm guitar), Phyl Hamley (drums) and featured vocalists Don Roberts and Allan Lydiard. In Ron Richards’ words, “I like to bring enjoyment to people, in the home or on the dance floor. It is important that people get pleasure out of listening as well as dancing.”
