Contact: Ronnie Hall
THE GREEN ONIONS RHYTHM & BLUES REVUE was formed by Lead Vocalist and Band Leader Ronnie Hall and drummers JOE HIBBS & TIM LOONEY. They played their first gig on July 21, 1980 at the WHISKEY RIVER on Gessner in Houston. They soon became a mainstay at the RAIL HEAD on Richmond Avenue every Sunday & Monday. The band was basically formed as a musical outlet for the players doing their "legit" gigs. At times the band numbered up to THIRTEEN pieces (!!) & had some of the hottest players in town. The band now consists of Ronnie on Lead Vocals and hand percussion; Steve Hitt on Lead Guitar & Lead / Background Vocals; Milford Spivey on Bass Guitar & Background Vocals; Terry Westbrook on Drums and various top Saxophonists in the Houston area!! The band has quite a history in the Houston and surrounding area. During their tenure at the RAIL HEAD, the line-up was: RONNIE HALL - Lead Vocals; WAYNE HOLT - Guitar (1st 2 weeks); CHRIS FIELD - Bass; SAM HIGHBURGER - Hammond Organ; JOE HIBBS and TIM LOONEY - Drums; TOM CUMMINGS-Percussion & Vibes; EMILIO LUNA - Tenor Sax; JOE MILLER - Trombone & STEVE MOORE - Trumpet & Harmonica. Later, CLIFF FALDOWSKI & JIM FULTON replaced Holt on guitar (Jim & Cliff on Sunday and just Jim on Monday) and Tenor player TONY CAMPISE replaced Luna. HAL ROBERTS filled one of the two drum chairs when Looney left. In August of '81 the band began performing at Houston's FITZGERALD'S. These gigs brought the band some welcome publicity and it was at this time GARY DORSEY replaced Field on bass. On January 31, 1982 the ONIONS began a 17-month stay at Houston's REMINGTON'S that saw the addition of Trumpet player KIT REID & bassist BILL ROWE replacing Dorsey & Tenor players JOHN TORRES, JOHNNY GONZALEZ & JOE LYNCH variously working with the band. ZZ Top's BILLY GIBBONS came to see the band almost every Sunday when he was in town & the ONIONS were considered for the opening slot on the Texas leg of ZZ TOP'S ELIMINATOR TOUR, but managerial music business politics kept it from happening. In July of '83, bassist STEVE ANDERSON replaced BILL ROWE who took a 15 year leave-of-absence. In September of that year the band began a 6-month stint at THE ROOF that saw the addition of CHRIS YOUNG on 2nd Trumpet. Anderson left after THE ROOF, replaced once again by bassist CHRIS FIELD. In May of '84 keyboardist JERRY HOWARD came aboard. The band performed two dates at the HOUSTON MUSIC HALL in 1984 for KNUZ Radio where they opened the show & provided music back-up for DEL SHANNON, FREDDIE CANNON, THE SHIRRELLES, THE CRYSTELS, THE PLATTERS, and BEN E. KING. In September of '84 TRAVIS "The B-3 Man" DOYLE came in replacing Howard & the band did a six-month stint at Houston's GRAND HOTEL. In February of '85 original drummer & one of the founding members, JOE HIBBS, left the band replaced for three months by HERMAN MATHEWS who went on to play with internationally known funk band TOWER OF POWER. Through February of '86 the band went through a succession of some of Houston's finest drummers as HAL ROBERTS; VAN BRAMLETT & GEORGE WEIMER all variously held the drum chair. It was at this time that the Houston economy took a down turn and caused Ronnie to cease the GREEN ONIONS for 16 months. Ronnie re-formed the band in June of '87 and the new line-up was: RONNIE HALL - Lead Vocals, ELTON BROUGHTON - Hammond Organ, STEVE LUSTGARDEN - Guitar, GARY LOCHE - Bass, MIKE La FABRAVE - Drums, LARRY SLEZAK - Tenor Sax, JIMMY GERLICH - 1st Trumpet, RON OCHOA - 2nd Trumpet, & MARK HOLTER - Baritone Sax. ROBBIE MATTIX replaced Gerlich on 1st Trumpet in January of '89. The band is going strong as ever today playing Soul, R&B, Funk, Blues, Classic Rock, Jazz and Standards from Sinatra to Louis Armstrong. Playing everywhere from upscale Houston area restaurant/clubs like Sullivan's Steakhouse and the Magnolia Bar & Grille to Gambling Casinos in Louisiana and private functions of all kinds, there's no end in sight to this bands longevity!!
