The date was October 19, 2009. Cindy Little decided that she shouldn't live another day without cultivating something that had been planted in her decades earlier -- a love of soulful, hot-blooded...yet quiet-tempered music. And so she spent a year with a voice coach and sang her first time, solo, as the oldest performer at a springtime recital. The high that resulted was the catalyst for all that would come.
Cindy works as a freelance ghostwriter and copywriter, sings alto and soprano in her church's adult ensemble and choir, cantors, sings for wedding ceremonies, and of course, rocks with Little Leroys. Every performance is a compilation of what she would call "timelessly great music," and she has her uber-talented bandmates to thank for their support...both on and off stage. Contact her here for bookings of any type.
Craig Rankin...bio coming soon.
Ron Bitler, largely a self-taught bass player, joined his first band in 8th grade, playing guitar and bass. The following year, he switched to exclusively playing bass. After college graduation, he became serious about playing and joined the Hunch Boogie Band from Reading, PA.
Four years later, he joined the Roadhouse Band, playing Country Rock and Texas Swing all over Eastern PA. A variety of blues and rock bands followed, leading to the Country Freedom Band -- the first of many collaborations with Mickey Dean Fisher. Country Freedom Band later became Midnight Rodeo and opened for many nationally known acts, backed Anna Stapleton in Nashville, and appeared on TNN. This led to Ron's transition to double (upright) bass.
Ron also spent a number of years with a Delaware State Champion Bluegrass Band named Special Delivery, which played all over the tri-state area and was a favorite at the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. After a brief hiatus, Ron was reunited with Mickey Dean Fisher in Gary Melton's Rock and Soul Revival, and it wasn't long before Ron was inducted into the Berks County Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In the Summer of 2018, he joined Little Leroys.
