Ron Myers began classical training at the age of six, and continued for the next eleven years. A forty-year professional career precluded music as a full time endeavor. Ron was afforded the opportunity to travel world-wide and was always able to find a piano to play. Dance band, radio shows, piano bars, weddings, variety shows, and special events have all contributed to his musical experience. John Liger began singing at three. His mother, a very talented pianist; his dad, a professional singer. He discovered jazz at age 16 and began singing in vocal groups. He began working with Ron Myers in 1995 while performing in Music Man.
