Roundhouse was founded in 1994 by Ron Leavitt and Kim Jones. Ron played trumpet until he switched to the mandolin in college, inspired by both Seals and Croft and Bill Monroe. Ron is the harmony guru of the band and sings any part that is needed. Kim grew up with country and bluegrass music and started playing mandolin in the 80's, then when Roundhouse was started, she switched to bass. She writes many of the original compositions and sings leads and the "high harmony" above the guys. The third founding band member, Joe Denhof, plays guitar, sings lead and bass and contributes original material to Roundhouse's song collection. His distinctive rhythmic guitar style gives Roundhouse it's edge. The newest member, Donn Whitten, a long time student of the banjo also plays guitar and harmonica. An able lead and harmony singer, his contributions give the Roundhouse repertoire added dimension and texture. Roundhouse was formed with th e goal of providing a variety of musical genres to diverse audiences: something for everyone. Toward this end Roundhouse performs bluegrass, southern rock, doo-wop, gospel, country, blazing instrumentals and original compositions. Roundhouse instrumentation includes guitar, mandolin, banjo and bass.
Donn Whitten, Kim Jones, Ron Leavitt and Joe Denhof
