Former MONTROSE lead singer and event producer, Keith St John says new iconic names are being added to the line-up literally every day. St John was with MONTROSE for the last 13 years of Ronnie’s life. The band was on top of the charts in the 1970s when Sammy Hagar was vocalist, with tunes like "Rock Candy", "Bad Motor Scooter" and "Rock the Nation". When St John teamed up with Montrose they continued to entertain until right before his death, filling clubs and festivals around the world. St John wrote many unreleased tunes with Ronnie Montrose, some performed at concerts throughout the years.

After a long battle with cancer, it has been almost eight years since Montrose ended his life and St John wants the guitar greats’ legend to continue. “Ronnie’s contribution to rock music in the early 70’s was the Rock n Roll bible for many of the up and coming great American rock guitarists for next two decades more than he probably ever realized or gave himself credit for. I really want to give those who really appreciate Ronnie the chance to get together in a loving dynamic concert setting where we can all really dig in and enjoy each other through the commonality of Ronnie’s music,” St John remarks.

One of the event’s featured guitar players, George Lynch of DOKKEN and LYNCH MOB, says this about Montrose: “I was definitely a big MONTROSE fan. In my early days back in the 70's, I was was actually the lead singer in a band in Northern California that covered "Space Station #5". When I met Ronnie years later at a Rock n Roll Fantasy camp, I was blown away by how great his live playing chops were, and also that he was such a gentleman. Ronnie's music was an important element of the blueprints that many of us songwriters and players used to model our sound and songs in the 80's. I'm really looking forward to paying tribute to one of the true founding fathers of hard rock guitar music this January!”
