Click HERE to HEAR The Blues To Do-Podcast with Marlee Walker featuring an interview with Seattle music icon, Ronnie Pierce!
Ronnie Pierce was the only white guy in the Bumps Blackwell Orchestra, along with people such as Ray Charles and Quincy Jones. Whenever Billie Holiday would perform in Seattle she would hire Bumps and his Orchestra to back her up, and that included Ronnie Pierce. Ronnie also ran a live music club called 'The Vault', that was one of the only teen clubs in Seattle when rock 'n roll started.
Listen for more stories from Ronnie Pierce himself! Part II will be posted here next week. See our Podcast page to hear more Blues To Do podcasts.
