Music at the Mint says
Ron Hacker & The Hacksaws will perform at The Mint on Friday, April 1st, 22nd, and 29th at 7pm. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door or online.

After teaching himself to play guitar, Ron met the late Yank Rachell, partner of Sleepy John Estes. Yank trained Ron on the finer points of Delta Blues, and they became life-long friends in the process.

The actor Peter Coyote helped Ron get his first gig in San Francisco at a neighborhood coffee shop. It wasn’t long before Ron put together the Hacksaws and was tearing it up in clubs all over the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since then, Ron has played every major festival in Northern California, including the Monterey Jazz Festival, the San Francisco Blues Festival, the Marin County Blues Festival and the Long Beach Blues Festival.

Ron has also toured extensively in Europe playing major festivals in Belgium, Denmark, France, Holland, Germany, and Norway.

Ron has put out nine albums, which include No Pretty Songs, Bar Stool Blues, I Got Tattooed, Backdoor Man, Burnin’, Live In Holland, Mr. Bad Boy, My Songs, and Filthy Animal.
In June of 2006 Ron put some slide guitar on Tom Waits’ Grammy nominated CD, Orphans released 11/21/06. He has also written a pulp memoir, White Trash Bluesman. Movie credits include “The Blues Guy” in “Just Like Heaven”, September 2005.
