The San Juan Mountain Boys are a local duo playing restaurants, dances and private parties, and establishing a strong following along the way.

Ron Lowe on acoustic guitar, and Glenn Unrath on bass, both offer lead vocals and excellent harmonies, creating a full sound for listening or just kicking up your heels to a lot of their upbeat dance selections.

Ron got his start in music at an early age just outside of Farmington, N.M., on an alto saxophone. He soon switched to guitar and vocals and moved to Denver, where he formed a band with his brother and played there for years. Along the way, he was musically influenced by his father singing Hank Williams, Sr., and by great artists such as Rick Nelson, the Everly Brothers, Simon and Garfunkel, Alan Jackson, The Eagles and John Denver. He finally ended up in Pagosa as a full-time resident, which led him to meet his new duo partner, Glenn Unrath.

Glenn, born and raised in Wisconsin, was influenced by all forms of music beginning with the harmonies of his father’s barbershop quartet. He then moved on to the music of the ‘60s, classical, blues, folk and jazz. His musical training began with formal lessons on the string bass, progressing to six-string and 12-string guitar. Past musical adventures include acoustic performances with ‘Rath and Stevens throughout the Midwest, as well as a rock history spanning five decades that included stints with The Vaqueros, Underdogs, Crusaders and, more recently, RSP and Powerhouse.

So … if you just want to have a great listening experience, hear some of your favorite songs, or a great night of dancing, don’t miss the San Juan Mountain Boys at the Ross Aragon Community Center on Friday, March 28. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets in advance are $8 per person in advance or $12 at the door. This is an 18-plus event. For more information, call the center at 264-4152.
