I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

I Wonder Who - Ron Sayer Jr and Paddy Maguire

Ron began playing guitar at seven, was gigging by the time he was 10 and never really wanted to do anything else. Taking the rocky road from Hank Marvin to Robert Johnson and stopping off pretty much everywhere in-between!! He became pretty well qualified in music, gaining a BA (hons) in classical music, trained at Homerton College, Cambridge University and won the coveted title of "Guitarist Of The Year" a few years back, playing at Wembley Live Music Hall and appearing in Guitarist Magazine, not to mention winning a beautiful custom shop Fender. Also he took grade 8 in both guitar and bass guitar, went on to be an examiner for Rockschool, taught guitar for many years (and still does) and is still giving lectures in blues improvisation at various colleges including Cambridge University. He has toured the globe and played with/supported Buddy Guy, John Mayall, Walter Trout, Robin Trower, Ten Years After, Imelda May, Matt Schofield. Debbie Davies, Nine Below Zero, Stan Webb, Aynsley Lister, Oli Brown, Buddy Whittington (ex-John Mayall), Popa Chubby, Dani Wilde, Chantel McGregor, Dr. Robert (Robbie Gladwell-ex Suzi Quatro and currently with Steve Harley) Mr. Big, L7, The Quireboys, Gregg Wright (Ex-Michael Jackson) and Pete Best (ex-Beatles). Has had many of his original songs played on local radio and Radio One, and had a live concert broadcast on Radio One on Tommy Vance's Friday Rock Show. He has worked for an international music distribution company for several years and as a result has released over 100 albums of different genres. While he was working as bassist for Oli Brown he won the Best Band award at the Newark Blues Festival in 2011. After a time working on chops and studying the beautiful thing that is music, Ron is now back with his band writing original tunes.He currently performs at venues around the UK with his own band. His music is a combination of blues, funk and rock and strives to create something fresh and uncomplicated for guitar music lovers everywhere.
