Ronkat Spearman's Katdelic

RONKAT SPEARMAN'S KATDELIC -- DANCE ON THE MOTHER SHIP...

TDWMedia.com pic credit: Ronkat Spearman stomping through San Francisco.RONKAT SPEARMAN is a BAAAAAD KAT! And his new album D.O.T.M.S. (Dance On The Mother Ship) on Katdelic Records aint no joke. The entire album is a fresh alternative tune-up of Funk but traditional James Brown, George Clinton and Bootsy Collins sound elements remain foundational.

Before we board the Mother Ship, here is a bit of accolades: American Music Press -- "Not only does he (RonKat Spearman) sings and play about five different instruments… RonKat is literally a songwriting machine who is able to write a song in less time than it takes most people to write a letter." George Clinton -- "RonKat is a crowd pleaser and he is truly funky." Garry Starchild Shider -- "RonKat kicks Ass!" Steve Murray/Viva Variety -- "RonKat is amazing; the audience loved him; he can play at my show anytime."

RonKat SpearmanThe Grammy Nominated alumni and BMI Award winning songwriter has a blue chip pedigree history as core member of George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic since 2001. Touring the world with GCPF has enriched the experience and talents of RonKat. He is a super kool team player who is passionate about doing whatever the krew calls for on tour.

The self-taught musician has been playing percussion, bass, guitar, drums, keyboards and singing professionally since the age of five. Ronkat used to sit in with his dad’s (Lester Spearman) band on congas at age six.

Ronkat’s professional credit is tall. He has collaborated, recorded and co-written songs with George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Lady Miss Keir, Anastasia, Bernie Worrell, Tommy Lee, Eric McFadden, Henry Rollins, Darius McCrary, Bobby Womack, Shock G. Prince, Brenda Russell, Chaka Khan, El Debarge, Rick James, Lenny Kravitz, Tony Williams, Blackbyrd McKnight, Lamont Dozier, Scarface and you don’t stop...

D.O.T.M.S. (Dance On The Mother Ship) Ronkat Spearman's new album. D.O.T.M.S (Dance On The Mother Ship) 16 track CD is Ronkat’s latest release. And the album is on The One! “…It is all about the beats for me coupled with a cold melody and good lyrics…” said RonKat about his Katdelic sound. And he didn’t disappoint. With an edgy blend of funk-rock-punk and glam soul, RonKat has pushed the envelope to create a gritty but smooth and dirty but clean next generation funky sound for the Mother Ship’s Intergalactic journey. And the "D.O.T.M.S." title track is perfect for the ride. “D.O.T.M.S.” tracks from 1 to 15 tear the roof off da mutha #ucka. Track 16 'Peace To You' is a slow heartfelt tribute to love ones and friends who have passed on. “D.O.T.M.S.” reminds of the classic backstage scene at a George Clinton and P-Funk concert. The show upfront is usually on fire and in your face but backstage is where the real show is. Those who have been lucky enough to hang backstage of a P-Funk concert know that the party vibe is insanely intense. “D.O.T.M.S.” is insanely an intense party vibe album. Man D.O.T.M.S. is even a tripped-out journey for the Haight Street ‘Change Generation’ types and the stoner contingent from Mendocino County or Weed, California to a Brooklyn – NYC party loft. Pop the CD in and let it spin from start to finish. Then let it loop!

RonKat Spearman’s past CD releases are “FUNKY NATION”, “CHEDDAR”, “LITTLE MONSTERS”, and “JOY TO THE FUNK” titles. Like “D.O.T.M.S.”, each CD has its own distinctive mood and style which display RonKat's versatility and abilities. It’s like a mountain that creates its own unpredictable micro-weather systems. Each song creates varying degrees of dramatic emotions that take you on a different trip muically. The common thread is excellent songwriting and musicianship of tracks which are all written, produced, performed and mixed or co-mixed by RonKat. "I like to keep my mind open to the pulse of the people, because it inspires me whether I am writing a love song, dance song or working on my Katdelic Music," said RonKat.

Ronkat Spearman RonKat has also taken his acoustic music to the stage. He performs solo in clubs and cabarets on the West Coast. (Shouts to the Boom Boom Room. Put a straight whiskey at the table of John Lee Hooker who incedentally is the best Hooker on the Hollywood Blvd. Walk of Fame. 'Peace To You' Pops.) RonKat's KATDELIC REVIVAL which is a High Energy, Funky, Rockin Original show that is heating up the club scene in San Francisco region. KATDELIC has an innovative & unique funklectik sound and "Makes 'em Dance". RonKat Spearman is an artist with a dynamic theatrical stage presence, an amazing voice, solid playing skills, remarkable versatility and a foundation that will insure his future in the music industry for a long time to come.

Shoutz to Miss Gina Hall. It takes a team of at least 25 people to do what you do. Major!! Great job Mama.
