Summer is practically here and that usually means lots of fun concerts for Player. The past few summers they have been touring around the United States with the Yacht Rock Revue boys,  Little River Band, Ambrosia, Orleans, Christopher Cross and Firefall just to name a few of those classic smooth rock bands we all know and love so much! However this summer we will be doing Ronn Moss solo concerts in Belgium, so the last Player concert for the summer of 2017 will be at the beautiful Library Theater in Huntington Beach. So if you haven’t seen these badass boys in concert live you are so missing out! This is your last chance in southern California to get to see them up close and personal and meet them after the Player show! I think everyone knows Baby Come Back was a Player original #1 hit that has stood the test of time in numerous commercials, movies and media outlets for the past 40 years now.

Since Ronn left “The Bold and The Beautiful” he has been touring every summer with Peter Beckett all over the USA and they did a full 14 day tour in Australia in 2014, as well as, appearances on “General Hospital” and “Celebrity Wife Swap.” Player also was part of the incredible Rock and Romance 70s Cruise to Cozumel, Mexico recently and joined classic rock legends like, “America” and Peter Frampton. So I think Player will be doing even more touring with more classic rock greats in the future. But, for now there is only one more Player date for this summer and the venue only holds 300 seats, so get your tickets here now!

We are also excited to announce that Ronn has just done a beautiful song with Pope Francis! Yes, you heard right the Pope and Ronn Moss are on a new record together that will be released the first week of June! I guess you can say a trip to Italy is in our near future also. Player recently played at home in Thousand Oaks at the Conejo Valley Days fair, so I’m gonna leave you with some video of what a fun time we had! Please visit Ronn’s website for more details on his future solo performances in Belgium all summer and follow Ronn on Reverbnation to keep up with performances!

 Australia has had an ongoing love affair with Ronn for decades now. It was seen firsthand during his last two solo tours, but magnified greatly during this last month as Ronn and Player toured around OZ. I saw the constantly quest for photos everywhere we went and from young and old, men and women, seems everyone was thrilled to see Ronn and show their love.

That’s what’s so amazing about Australia, the land and people are truly beautiful and it shows in spades. They are polite with a light and happy attitude that says, “No worries mate, everything is alright.” So as we spent our last week enjoying this love affair, we knew we would have to come back to the reality of the fact that it was just a visit. However, the memories will last a lifetime and what memories they have been! Our Aussie love affair is indeed just beginning with new friends that we have made and new adventures we will be having together.

Player has now made a new stamp on the Aussie’s hearts and it was shown in their smiling faces, as they lined up each and every night to greet Ronn and the band for photos. The Aussies have a stamp on our hearts as well. We all enjoyed their hospitality and warmth everywhere we went.

We were all spoiled to great seafood like prawns and oysters and fish and chips. Aussies also take their coffee seriously and their cappuccinos were amazing! There are even institutions dedicated to Baristas and coffee. However, these cappuccinos were strong and would have you hopping around like a Kangaroo if you had too many. I could only have one a day. The tour took us through some northern cities like Coffs Harbour and Twin Towns where we saw the most beautiful beaches, however we didn’t have much time to spend on them due to the hectic schedule of the band.

Ronn usually had press days on the days off, but Peter and Eden got to go further north and enjoy parts of Queensland. We did all make it to the Featherdale Park to see the animals together. And Ronn and I had a beautiful private tour of the Sydney Harbour compliments of designer, Cristina Nipoti and Vesna Perry.

 Kangeroo

Ronn and I had a hair makeover by fame hairstylist, Alan Buki and I was given an awesome flat iron for my hair by EVY personalized with my name on it. Our tour promoters Roy and Enza Ortuso treated us to some fabulous dinners and did everything to make us all feel at home. Player had the most fabulous crew taking care of them backstage with our tour manager Stu Marks, sound engineer Andrew Troy and Sam the man who made sure the guys were always in tune.

But it was the devotion from the fans that was indeed beautiful to see at each and every performance. They expressed how much they missed Ronn as Ridge Forrester and let him know how much he meant to them. I saw mothers and daughters, grandmothers and husband and wives tell Ronn how much they loved watching him each and everyday for years.

I think it’s safe to say we will be returning to the land of OZ and I for one hope it’s soon!

 

As we come into the home stretch of the Aussie Player tour this week, it’s safe to say they have hit a home run with every performance and the fans can’t seem to get enough of them. There have been such a diversity with the audiences that attended the past shows. Women are coming with their moms, grandmothers and husbands to the shows and seem to really enjoy every moment of  not only Player, but Ronn’s playful interaction with them before he brings Player on stage. There has been a lot of laughter, dancing and photos after the shows. Long lines have formed for the purchase of merchandise and photos with Ronn and the band.

Last night the stage was filled with women from age 20-80 dancing to their encore and it’s amazing to watch how much fun everyone is having on this tour. We have had a hectic week of traveling between Coffs Harbour, Twin Towns and Campbelltown and back to Sydney for much needed rest. Peter was starting to lose his voice the past few days and poor Jimmy had a stomach bug from something he ate, but they pulled off amazing concerts nevertheless. With only three more shows left in this tour, we head to MacKay and Hornsby later this week and then it will be time to say goodbye to one of our most memorable trips.

We have all made some new amazing friends and the tour crew couldn’t have been more wonderful. It has truly been an experience of a lifetime to explore this beautiful country and the people here. So now that OZ has gotten to know Ronn a bit better and has been introduced to Player, it’s probably in the cards that we will someday return to OZ to rock out once again. I know next week is Thanksgiving for our friends back home and want to wish them a happy Turkey day. Speaking of turkey, we saw a few live ones walking around our hotel. We also saw these creatures called, “water dragons” that hang out like pets everywhere.  The boys freaked out over a huge snake crossing the road on our way back from Twin Towns and we learned even though it was huge, it wasn’t dangerous. It seems OZ has a lot of creatures that we just don’t have in America and alot of things that could be deadly. They also have creatures that look deadly, but aren’t. So I guess you just can’t judge a book by it’s cover around these Aussies.

There are pristine gorgeous beaches in northern Australia, but we had no time to spend on them due to soundchecks and three shows in a row. I did manage to visit one in Coffs Harbour briefly for a photo. Today Ronn and I actually saw the pool in our hotel for the first time in three weeks and did absolutely nothing. It was a good day to just rest and chill out after so much traveling the past few days. We were happy to see Player Angel, Eden join us last night and she was able to help me get the fans dancing onstage at the end of the night. I made our sound engineer Andrew an honorary Player Angel because he’s been the one I’ve hung out with the most during the tour and I now call him, “Girlfriend.” I do anticipate a growing number of Player Angels will be forming now and will have those Player T-shirts available on Ronn’s website soon!

 

Our trip down under has been nothing short of an exciting adventure. Player has been on fire at every concert so far and the fans are showing the love for Ronn and the band after every show. Player and Ronn Moss T-shirts and CDs are selling like crazy and there have been some female fans that have displayed their affection for Ronn with a tattoo of his face on their thigh! And this fan was only 26 years old, which has been surprising. Seems we have been seeing younger fans gracing the shows that have been watching Ronn on B&B most of their lives! We even had a female fan who came all the way from Malaysia for the Melbourne show and told us that Player has many fans there as well.

Our tour manager Stu has been taking really great care of us backstage as you can see on the Livestream I surprised you guys with last week. We have been treated to great food and company by our promoter Enza and Roy Ortuso and each and every Aussie we have met has been so warm and friendly. Ronn’s cousin Joan and her husband David made it to the Melbourne show and it was terrific to see her. I have a few friends of my own that will catch a show while we are here that I haven’t seen in a while also. Ronn’s very own BBQ Sauce is now available for orders on our DevRonn website and it comes in a mild and medium spicy gluten free flavor that you will just love!!

We had a blast at the Melbourne Cup and now everyone is talking about Ronn’s man bun as they like to call it when he was a guest on Rove’s show, “The Project” yesterday. Magazines “TV Weekly” and “New Idea” have talked about Ronn’s visit and Player appeared on the popular “Morning Show” with their live acoustic version of “Baby Come Back.” It seems the press can’t get enough of them and it has been a bit hectic this past week with the concerts and all the press, so these past couple of days has been nice and relaxing for all of us and much needed.

It’s so nice to really see the beautiful country of OZ up close and personal. We even got to see some Kangaroos in the wild on our drive into Canberra. Next week we will all visit the zoo together and get to see more. Since we have been here it’s been expressed countless times that the fans are not taking to the Nu-Ridge very well and Ronn is and always will be their one and only Ridgerido and that’s never going to change for them. We love the land of OZ and we are looking forward to the rest of the tour and want to visit more often!

Speaking of gigs PLAYER has a couple of awesome gigs you won’t want to miss! Coming up in Atlanta on July 19th, they will be rockin and rollin with those polyester smooth rock boys of Yacht Rock Revue for their big summer blowout at Piedmont Park. Joining them will be Pablo Cruise, Gary Wright and Robbie Dupree so this will be one concert party I am so looking forward to! PLAYER is also doing a concert in Annapolis, Maryland on August 23rd at the Rams Head and you can get your tickets for that one here.

You may also get to see PLAYER make a cameo on Celebrity Wife Swap which will air Tuesday July 22nd on ABC and this is going to be one fun show! I can’t tell you details, but I think you will laugh alot at all the fun we had! Player will be starting rehearsals soon for their upcoming Australian tour  and I can’t wait for that! Get your tickets  for the Aussie tour now!  As you can see PLAYER is rockin and rollin it, and if you haven’t seen them in concert you are so missing out!

Ronn will be rockin and rollin when he shoots a new music video for his single “Addiction” in the next few days and he’s shooting an exclusive for an Australian magazine tomorrow and will be doing a special “Confessions” segment for “The Bay” also. I can’t wait until John Blackwell shoots the new chapter for “The Bay” because he is one bad dude who kicks ass!

Mondays will always have a specialness to it now because I’ll never forget how we rocked out on a Monday with Player at the Canyon Club. The event was a great success to say the least. We filled the house and rocked it big time! Shelter Hope Pet Shop was amazing and I want to thank all the volunteers who put in all their time an effort on the decorations, gift bags and red carpet. Kim Sill, founder of Shelter Hope Pet Shop went overboard on an amazing cake that was too delicious and a great time was had by all.

We had REO Speedwagon in the house along, with artist Olivia, Michael Moebius, Katherine Kelly Lang, Winsor Harmon, Allie Mills, Orsen Bean, Adam Gregory, Linda Thompson, Sheree J. Wilson, Renee Tenison, Sean Kanan & Bud Cort all getting down on the dance floor to the music of Player. The band was amazing and the evening couldn’t have turned out better. We raised over $5000 for Shelter Hope Pet Shop and more donations are coming in everyday on behalf of my 50th birthday, so thank you all so much! We can save quite a few animals with this money. Fans flew in from all over the country to see the band and I had my best buddies and most awesome Player Angels on hand to help me as my ladies in waiting. I say that because all my girlfriends spent the weekend with me and they were all waiting on me hand and foot. So they bought me a tiara and made me Queen and they were Princesses. We all decided to wear our Player tank tops and I wore my tiara all night long being the Queen was fun!

My only regret is that some people brought me gifts even though I said, “NO GIFTS!” As a result I put them in my gift bag and at the end of the evening that bag was gone and so were my gifts and my tiara! So the quest to find my tiara and gifts is ongoing here. Anyone who has it and won’t give it back will be beheaded!! Thank you Kira Reed Lorsch for being the best MC ever!

Player

Player had a good time playing at the first annual Canada Fest in Palm Springs. There were alot of food and clothing vendors, as well as a fashion show that I participated in, along with my pals Robin Krasny and Eden Ayers. Player’s very own webmistress Patti Meyers came all the way from New Jersey to party with us. Before  their concert,  A funny thing happen to Ronn after I left him alone in the hotel room before I went to get ready for the fashion show. Apparently, Ronn was putting the room service trays outside our door and locked himself out in his underwear! He said he luckily found a bellman that helped him back inside the room and the guy  was trying not to laugh. Can you imagine if he had been naked?

Given that Player is getting more and more in demand for gigs all over the place I came up with a cool idea of starting a fan club for them and along with Eden, Patti and Robin we will launch, “The Player Angels.” You can join us and have your photo featured on the Player website. Details are coming soon, but your membership gets you a sexy Player T-shirt like ours, a Free photo of the band and 10% off future merchandise, as well as, chances to win prizes and back stage passes. As a member you will know FIRST when and where they are playing next! So join us for the next concert, maybe in your city and be a “PLAYER ANGEL!”

Ronn & Peter Beckett

“Baby Come Back” has stood the test of time for over 35 years in commercials, movies and TV shows as one of the most recognized songs from the 70’s. It knocked “How Deep Is Your Love” by the Bee Gees  out of number one and remains a classic rock song that most people on the planet know. Written by Peter Beckett and JC Crowley, “Baby Come Back” has a new version on the new PLAYER CD that will be released in February.

Spacemonk aka Johnny English

But for now you can get the new version of “Baby Come Back” along with “Addiction” and “Too Many Reasons” now on itunes. I personally love “Too Many Reasons” which will be the title of the CD and is perfect title to Ronn’s departure from B&B. Many people do not know how talented PLAYER is and what a great songwriter Peter Beckett has always been, but I’m sure this CD will speak volumes about that.

Craig Pilo

Every song is amazing and the three songs that are out now are only a sample of the entire album. So it was only fitting that PLAYER did a music video for the single, “I Will” that will be released in February. It was directed by Devin DeHaven, funny huh? Devin is a Greek hottie who has quite a reputation as a a music director of videos and documentaries. He just did one for Crosby Stills and Nash, so the boys were in good hands. Devin’s wife Anabel did makeup and was so beautiful and sweet that I hope to have her do a shoot for me in the future.

Rob Math

It was a fun and enjoyable day for the band. I always adore seeing Spacemonk(Johnny English) Craig Pilo and Rob Math and the synergy they create together with Peter and Ronn.

Peter & Ronn

A tour is being formulated and more press is coming on the new CD that I’m sure you guys will absolutely love as much as I do. Too bad we all have to wait for the release, but the record company needs time to put their video and press kit together for the worldwide release and tour that is being formulated. In the meantime, Ronn is sifting through numerous offers around the world for movies and TV, so you will be seeing him on your screens in numerous ways soon!

We are proud of this month’s Ronn’s Garage “Summer Special” that is like 3 shows in one. Since we were in Italy for B&B’s remote shoot and PLAYER’s publicity tour, Ronn decided that he would document the trip. There was a small jam party at our house before we left for Italy, so Ronn included that in the special also and it is the 1st segment. The 2nd segment is the behind the scenes of the B&B shoot and the upcoming 3rd segment is our spontaneous vow renewal in romantic Puglia. We are very happy to see that so many of you are enjoying Ronn’s Garage and stats are showing that it is a huge hit. We welcome your comments and suggestions on making it better with each and every show. Ronn is truly enjoying producing and editing each new show and wants to know what you think. His goal is make the interviews moving and personal, the music fun and to make you feel like you are there with us when we travel. The next upcoming Ronn’s Garage guests will include, Katherine Kelly Lang, Australian artist Brett Livingston Strong and “Quiet Riot” drummer Frankie Banali. So please check out Ronn’s Garage and spread the word that more is coming!

Rob Math, Ronn Moss, Peter Beckett and Johnny English of PLAYER

We kicked off daylight’s savings time in Palm Springs with PLAYER performing for a private affair at the PGA West Golf’s 25 anniversary party. The boys were awesome and Johnny English sported a new look! Johnny is always changing his looks and it’s like he’s a different person every gig. We all love Johnny! Peter Beckett and Rob Math were amazing on the guitar and drummer Michael Taylor had a groovy beat that kept everyone dancing all night long. Hubby of course had a blast and I got a little drunk, which isn’t like me. We drove down with our pals Wally and Lori Crowder and started drinking at lunch with cocktails upon arrival, wine at dinner and martini’s at party! I have always been a lightweight with liquor so by the end of the evening was toast! The boys are getting offers for other gigs and we are trying to juggle them with Ronn’s busy schedule as usual. So I will keep you posted on when and where you can see PLAYER next! Don’t forget to subscribe and comment on our Devronnfilms youtube channel to win a FREE PLAYER T-shirt! We will be giving that away to celebrate Spring at the end of this month! Devronnfilms youtube channel

It was an invite only evening for high rollers, press and VIPs at the Cascade lounge and a packed house to see the Classic rock 70s band PLAYER perform hits like “Baby Come Back,” “This Time I’m In It for Love,” and “It’s For You” Thursday night and boy did they rock it. Original band members Peter Beckett and Ronn Moss were joined by Johnny English on Keyboards, Rob Math on guitar and Craig Pilo on drums. The sound took you back in time and made you wish you were in high school again. Of course I’ve heard them rehearse numerous times in my garage and cooked them many meals in the process, but this was the first time I’d seen them perform their entire set in concert and I must say they rocked the house! The cool thing about PLAYER is that they sound just like their album and are all amazing musicians. PLAYER also has great songs of today like “Religion and Wildside that totally kick ass!   I really recommend you take advantage of this opportunity to see them in an intimate setting as seats are limited for the next three Thursdays. There is already talk of moving them to a much larger venue and expanding them with a national and International tour in the coming year. So this may be one of only times to get to see them up close and personal. Click here for ticket info and reserve your seats now! PLAYER TICKET INFO
