The Ron Crichlow Ensemble is group of lifelong friends united in Christ that have come together to make a 'joyful noise'. The founding members are childhood friends from East Elmhurst, Queens, NY that form the heart & soul of the ensemble. They are Ron Crichlow on drums, Billye Arrington - guitar, Randy Parks - bass and siblings Reggie Spencer & Shirelle Woods- vocalists. Rounding out the ensemble are vocal arranger Roy Leaper on organ and keyboards. Members of the historic Leverich Memorial Church based in East Elmhurst NY, The Ron Crichlow Gospel Ensemble originally came together to offer a musical ministry to the congregation. Their popularity grew with each performance and it was decided to formally create an ensemble and they began the process of auditioning singers to join the ensemble. The quest for the singers blessed the group with the very talented members Tisha Hunter (back-up singer for Kool & The Gang), Denise Blanks, Jackie Crane, Jasmine Hall and Donzella Johnson. This wonderful collective of individuals recorded their debut release at the legendary Tony Bennett Studios in Englewood, N.J. Stand-out tracks feature guest instrumentalists such as saxophonist Tony Smith on 'I Walk With God' and Grammy nominee, Senegalese Kora master, Mamadou Diabate on 'I Need A Blessing.' With the fall 2007 release of the CD, 'The Path,' produced by Jamal Salter, and balloted for a 2009 Grammy, the Ron Crichlow Ensemble is poised for an anointing.
