Ronny met his wife, Mary, when in high school, and they married in 1960. Mary passed away in 2006, 50 years to the day of their first date. Ronny often talks about her during his music performances.
Ronny’s music is eclectic, a woven tapestry of songs and stories with an over-all arc that eventually comes together and tells something about “the human condition”. Scores of fans and promoters will attest that attending one of his performances is one of the greatest evenings to experience. Enhancing these great stories is the music provided by Ronny and his band of world-class, virtuoso musicians.

A look of familiarity has helped make Cox one of Hollywood’s most versatile character actors. His first time in front of a camera featured him playing the guitar in the Dueling Banjos scene in Deliverance, creating one of the most iconic moments in the history of movie making. He has also appeared in films like Beverly Hills Cop, Total Recall, Taps, Bound For Glory, The Onion Field, all told over 125 movies and television appearances.

He’s an artist who wears a variety of hats………but his first love is music. According to Cox “The truly great thing about music is that it’s like a double-edged sword. Songs can be frivolous or sad, but they can trigger an almost overwhelming emotion……immediately. What I have found is that if I open up to my audience, they not only accept that, they also help me get through it. It is that sharing…..of silliness, or sadness, or mutual understanding that I find to be very compelling."

Ronny will be here on Friday, April 27, 2018 at 8pm, doors open 1/2 hour early. The cost to see Ronny Cox is $25.00 and of course refreshments are included. Beatniks is located at 420 Conkey St. Hammond, Indiana. For more info or reservations go to or call 219-852-0848. To purchase tickets on line go to
