Love Songs

As a hopeless romantic, I have always loved a great love songs. Over the past few years it has been my joy to get to share some of those great songs with my friends. We have held numerous Love Songs concerts throughout the area and are always blessed by the friends we meet and by knowing that these songs help them and their mate to hold hands just a little bit tighter, and walk a little closer.
Among the songs you will hear at a typical Ron Eckberg Love Songs concert are;
Someone to Watch Over Me
All I Have to Do is Dream
I Can't Help Falling In Love With You
I'll Never Smile Again
You Raise Me Up

And many, many more!

Forever Young

Ron Eckberg is a true Rock Roll veteran.
My earliest memories are of Rock roll, says the Northern Illinois native. I grew up listening to Chicago radio stations WLS and WCFL and watching American Bandstand on the TV every day.
While other boys his age dreamed of being firemen or cowboys, Eckberg set his sights on a different calling.
I would see the stars of the day, guys like Frankie Avalon, Fabian, Dion, Rick Nelson and, of course, Elvis, and think, Thats what I want to do when I grow up.
The open door to that dream came with the British Invasion of the 60s headed, of course, by the Beatles.
My grandfather bought me my first guitar and within a few months I teamed up with another local teenager and we started a group. From that moment on I was hooked.
Rons life has taken a dramatically different path from that earlier Rock and Roll dream.
Frankly, I had my chances. I loved the music but I just didnt want to do what I would have to do to be successful.
Instead of hitting the road in a rock and roll band, Eckberg settled in Walnut, Illinois to raise a family and eventually, to Pastor a church.
Today Ron and his wife, Judy, reside in Erie, Illinois where he pastors the Erie Evangelical Free Church..
Rock and Roll, however, is still a part of his life.
Im in my late 50s now and I dont sing with any illusions of fame and fortune, I just sing because I love to, says Eckberg.
And I especially love the music I grew up on, the music that shaped my young life.
He then adds the real motivation behind his efforts.
This music is timeless, wonderful, joyful music and it needs to be sung with a spirit of joy. Hopefully, I do that and as a result people walk out with a smile on their faces.
