About RonKat Spearman:
Projecting a wide range of talents as a composer, producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, Ronkat Spearman showed an aptitude for music at an early age and developed a unique style, playing guitar left handed but strung for a right handed player. Realizing his gift for making music, Ronkat left his home in Grand Rapids, Michigan for Los Angeles to pursue his dream. In a short time he wrote many songs that became hits for dozens of artists including Jade, Toni Braxton, El Debarge and Rick James. Ronkat garnered Grammy nominations and was awarded BMI Songwriter of the Year for his song "Don't Walk Away" (Jade).
" It's all about the beats for me, coupled with a cold melody and good lyrics. I like to keep my mind open to the pulse of the people because it inspires me, whether I am writing a love song, a dance song or a funky groove." (RonKat Spearman)
His musical skills were further confirmed in 2000 when RonKat was asked by George Clinton to join Parliament Funkadelic. He spent the next ten years touring the world as a guitar player and singer for Parliament Funkadelic, honing his performance skills in the process. While he drew deep inspiration from playing with P Funk, Ronkat continued to develop his own style as a songwriter and composer for what would become his own band - Katdelic.
Ronkat is a polished entertainer and Katdelic delivers the goods. The band is a hybrid of rock, funk, soul, and pop; an infectious, sophisticated mix that moves mind and body into a groove that lasts all night long. The Katdelic ensemble features 2 bass players, a horn section, DJ loops and background singers to deliver a wide range of musical textures.
