Chicago's Award Winning Entertainer, Ron Hawking, knows how to deliver a performance that truly comes from his heart. And, it's that special quality that allows him to touch the heart of his audience every time he walks onto the stage.
Ron Hawking sang before he could talk. He's appeared on television shows before entering grammar school and won talent competitions before he could tell time. As one critic said, "his photo should be placed next to the word "entertainer" in the dictionary!" And for Ron Hawking, singing and entertaining is what he was truly born to do.
In July of 1998 Ron created and self-produced the hit musical "His Way - A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra ", which opened to rave reviews and sold out crowds at Chicago's Mercury Theater. In 1999 Ron received additional critical acclaim for his West Coast production of His Way that played at San Francisco's Theater On The Square. Ron Hawking went on to tour The His Way Show in Las Vegas, as well as other major cities, before bringing the show back home to Chicago.
In 2007 Ron went back to the drawing board and created another hit musical production, "Ron Hawking celebrates - The Men & Their Music". The show honored the legendary singers, songwriters, and performers that have inspired Ron and touched the lives of millions. The critics gave the show rave reviews and once again, Ron had another long running hit musical in his hometown of Chicago.
His critically acclaimed Christmas Show, Ron Hawking Home for the Holidays, has played to sold out audiences at many Theaters and continues to be a seasonal favorite.
At the 2014 Chicago Music Awards, Ron Hawking was presented with CMA's 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award. So no matter what show you book, when Ron performs, you know you'll be getting a consummate professional that audiences will cheer.
