Vintage Guitar magazine’s Dan Forte said of Ron Dziubla in a review of his record Some Strange Blues, “If this were Vintage Saxophone Magazine, it would only be a matter of time before he graced the cover.”
Saxophonist Ron Dziubla’s raw and greasy rock and roll tone has rocked the stage and studio with artists such as Duane Eddy, Joe Bonamassa, Los Straitjackets, Nick Waterhouse, Royal Crown Revue, Joe Perry, Waddy Wachtel, John Mayall, Adrian Belew, Todd Rundgren and many more. Ron can be seen and heard on the live Joe Bonamassa concert recordings, Amsterdam, Muddy Wolf at Red Rocks and Live at the Greek Theater. He was Duane Eddy’s featured soloist on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member’s first studio recording in 30 years, Road Trip. A specialist in rock saxophone, his musical versatility is proven in his tours and recordings with artists such as Ricky Martin, Chayanne, and Franco de Vita. Ron is featured on Ricky Martin’s live DVD/CD recordings, MTV Unplugged and Live Black and White Tour.
The Independent UK commented on Ron’s playing with Duane Eddy in London in 2010, “Mr. Dziubla is a real find. His honking, tempestuous, full-blooded playing lifted every song into a delirium of noise. The Miami New-Times described Ron’s saxophone as “paint-peeling blasts of sax.”
Not content with tours and LA recording sessions alone, Ron also lives the academic life, serving as the Associate Dean of the School of Performance Studies at the world famous Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA.
