Ronnie Dawson is one of the hardest working, most loved people in the music business. Otto saw Ronnie at Pierre’s in Fort Wayne Indiana as well as at Rockabilly Rebel Weekenders and in Chicago at the Great American Music Festival at Fitzgerald’s. Here are some of the photos from those wonderful evenings.

Email from a fan: "The bass player is Todd Young, and the guitar player is Dan Phillips. Dan is also from Dallas and has toured before with Reverand Horton Heat playing steel guitar. I look for Dan to be making quite a name for himself one of these days…he’s an extremely talented guitar player and above all, a great guy."

John Palmer plays drums on tour this year, replacing Lisa Pankratz who wanted to spend more time at home.

Fort Wayne devoted fan Cindy Weigold designed the tee shirt for Ronnie’s new CD launch. and hopes to go to Hemsby to see him in 2000 there. Ronnie dedicates a song to Cindy whenever she is at one of his shows, which is often.
