Biography

Ronald Hawkins is an American/Canadian rockabilly artist whose career has spanned over 50 years in the recording business. He is considered highly influential in the establishment and evolution of rock music in Canada. Also known as “Rompin’ Ronnie,” “Mr. Dynamo,” and “The Hawk,” he was a key player in the 1960s rock scene in Toronto. He has recorded more than 25 albums and his hit songs include covers of Chuck Berry’s “Thirty Days,” Jessie Young’s “Mary Lou,” and other notable recordings such as “Who Do You Love?”, “Hey Bo Diddley,” and “Susie Q.” Hawkins played an important role in establishing premiere backing musicians via his band the Hawks. After his move to Canada in 1964, he picked up notable Canadian musicians Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Levon Helm and Garth Hudson, who would all go on to form their own act known as THE BAND. Bob Dylan was a long-time admirer of Hawkins and even cast him to play Dylan in the 1975 movie, “Renaldo and Clara.” The following year he was a featured performer at The Band’s Thanksgiving farewell concert, which was documented in the legendary 1978 rock n’ roll film, The Last Waltz.
