WHO IS RON CAMACHO?

From Chicken Soup for the Country Soul

Who Is Ron Camacho?

I started in rock and worked my way up to country.

Conway Twitty

Ron Camacho grew up in a small rural town in the Mohawk River valley of upstate New York. Raised by his mother, he and his brother learned respect for the country life.

Ron attended the State University of Buffalo as an art major. While at Buffalo he started the “fanzine” known as the Shakin’ Street Gaze tte and began his career as a music critic. Within two years he was responsible for getting a band signed to Columbia records, and left college to become a road manager. The following year, he began work with the band Blood, Sweat and Tears.

For the next twenty years Ron road managed, managed, promoted or bodyguarded some of the top performers in pop and rock music.

Over this time Ron has organized, cosponsored or worked with charities for his favorite organizations supporting children. He has been involved with benefit concerts for Find the Children, Feed the Children, Unite for Pediatric AIDS and the T. J. Martell Foundation, to name a few.

After leaving rock ’n’ roll Ron became involved with the California Country Music Association, leading the stars onto the Pomona fairgrounds at the first Fan Fests. Ron became hooked on country music and pursued it with the same enthusiasm that he had for rock.

With his three-year journey completed, he has set up his company, American Entertainment Concepts, in Nashville, Tennessee. This promotion production team will promote Chicken Soup for the Country Soul around the world, proudly bringing country music and lifestyle with it.
