Ronnie Haig was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on March 21, 1939. He listened to a lot of the country superstars early on, but eventually settled on something different. In the photo to the bottom left, he was in a high school doo wop group called the Twilighters, and had a good local audience. He never did leave his doo wop roots, as he did record some great harmony sides on vinyl, including working with the Five Stars and the Students. His first guitar was a Gibson ES295 Gold, purchased in 1957, and still in use by him today. His biggest hit with Ronnie Haig listed as the solo artist was "Don't You Hear Me Calling Baby" released on the Indianapolis based Note label, owned by Jerry and Mel Herman. It had good action in the Midwest and was leased to ABC (Hunt). Indy DJ Bouncin Bill Baker was the first DJ to play Ronnie's record. He played on many other sessions with other fabulous artists, and has played some great shows through the years, including Bandstand. Ronnie is still making music today, though he doesn't do much live performing due to health issues. He has recorded some CD's over the years, and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
. His musical contributions will continue to live on. Listen to my 2004 interview with Ronnie Haig Here!
