Aaron Welch "RINGO"
Aaron has been playing music since age 13, when he got his first electric guitar. He has consistently studied music and played in bands since then, spanning many different genres. Aaron receiveda Bachelor's degree in jazz guitar from San Diego State University, and if such a thing existed, he would definitely be a candidate for a degree in rock and roll. Aaron regards the Beatles as one of the greatest bands of all time and has a lot of fun learning the tunes through Ringo's eyes. Although guitar has always been his main thing, he has also learned to play many other instruments, eventually landing on the drums, which have strengthened his love for playing and become his primary focus. Aaron's goal with Mania is to provide the most entertaining tribute possible, while having a great time providing a way for fans old and new to experience the Beatles.

These days he relishes in his new role as lead guitarist and sharing the magic of John, Paul, George and Ringo with fellow Beatlemaniacs.
