In the beginning, Ron Gallo taught himself to play guitar and with his teenage buddies played gigs described as “VFW halls in South Jersey.” It taught him the nuts and bolts of playing in a band and after working with another high school act he got more ambitious with his next project.
In 2007 her formed Toy Soldiers as a two-piece with himself as the primary songwriter, alongside former drummer Mike Baurer. Then Gallo went south.
Funny, what a move from Philadelphia to Nashville can do to a person. If that person is Ron Gallo it stiffened his musical attitude. It also inspired him to name his band, Ron Gallo.
Ron plays guitar, Joe Bisirri on bass, and Dylan Sevey on drums. With his new band, Gallo’s style shifted into more aggressive territory, with a sound informed by garage rock and old-school punk. His first album for New West, Heavy Meta, was co-produced by Gallo and Joe Bisirri, and was released in February 2017.
