Ronnie Williams played his first professional music gig at age sixteen, backing R&B sax man Johnny London on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. He soon became a regular on the local soul scene, while going on to pursue a music degree at the University of Memphis. Ronnie’s impressive keyboard work drew the attention of artists, producers, and songwriters at Stax Records whenever they happened to hear him at popular night spots around town. It was a natural transition, then, for Ronnie to become a member of the Stax family.
 

At Stax, Ronnie played on, wrote, and/or produced dozens of notable tracks. The list reads like a Who’s Who in Soul – Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, David Porter, Sir Mack Rice, the Bar-Kays, Johnnie Taylor, the Staple Singers, Jonny London & the Rockets, the Rance Allen Group, Ben Cauley, to name just a few.
 

In recent years Ronnie has often performed live as one of the founding members of the Bo-Keys, an all star section of Stax sidemen - Ronnie Williams on Hammond B-3 organ; drummer Willie Hall (the Bar- Kays, the Blues Brothers), guitarist Charles “Skip” Pitts  (Isaac Hayes), garage rock bass prodigy Scott Bomar (Impala, Hustle & Flo,  plus a horn section headed by world renown sax man Jim Spake (Levon

Helm, Jerry Lee Lewis, Brenda Lee, etc.).
