Linda Ronstadt – The Linda Ronstadt Experience

The Linda Ronstadt Experience featuring American Idol star Tristan McIntosh

About The Show
The Linda Ronstadt Experience is “The Premier Touring Tribute” showcasing the songs that Linda Ronstadt made famous. The show takes you on a musical journey of smash hits “You’re No Good’, “When will I Be Loved”, “That’ll Be The Day”, “Blue Bayou” and many more. This repertoire spans from Linda’s early days with The Stone Poneys, the 1970’s where she helped forge the “Country-Rock Sound” with classic renditions of songs by The Eagles, Jackson Brown, Warren Zevon, and into the ’80s where she bridged the “New Wave Sound” into huge hits with her chart-topping tenth album “Mad Love”. Linda’s explosive live shows also included material by The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Little Feet, and other contemporaries of the day. Come out and revel in the songs Linda Ronstadt brought to life so beautifully performed by the Linda Ronstadt Experience. Tristan McIntosh (2016 American Idol finalist) takes you on an emotional ride of purity, power, and heartbreak as she is soaring through these songs as though they live inside her. Be part of the experience, and follow Tristan McIntosh and The Linda Ronstadt Experience as they bring Linda Ronstadt’s music into the 21st century!

Performing All The Hits And More
Linda Ronstadt was the rare artist who could comfortably cover a wide variety of musical bases; including folk, rock, country, jazz standards, opera and Latin. Her vocal gift had few limitations and she showcased it with every recording and performance. Her incredible vocal instrument along with her classic song interpretations have earned her countless devoted fans across the world. Sadly, Linda has been stricken with Parkinson’s Disease and can no longer sing or perform. The Linda Ronstadt Experience is excited to help keep her legacy alive by continuing to share the joy and beauty of her repertoire to a wide audience.“Music is meant to lighten your load. By singing it, you release the sadness and release yourself.” – Linda Ronstadt

How The Linda Ronstadt Experience Came To Be
In June of 2017 bassist Junior Cain ran a local ad in the Northeast seeking a Linda Ronstadt style singer. He proceeded to assemble a band of players that echoed his love for the artist, who had been stricken with Parkinson disease and left her unable to sing or perform. After a few early personnel changes Junior decided to place ads in the musical hot spots of Nashville and Austin. After a few weeks Tristan McIntosh’s Nashville Management replied to the ad. It was decided that Tristan’s closest musical collaborator Bronson Bush, would fill out the role as one of the bands guitarist. In March 2018 thirty songs were sent out to the potential band members to learn. In June of 2018, Tristan and Bronson flew into Boston to rehearse the material for three days, then shoot video on day four. It took a tremendous “Leap of Faith” on everyone’s part but when all the members met the chemistry and good vibes were undeniable. Then Tristan began to sing and everyone knew that this was going to be something very special.

“At the risk of being redundant…and to reiterate my remarks on Tristan’s personal FB page… well, here goes… what a superb show! Brilliant musicianship all around – and a truly spellbinding performance by Tristan McIntosh as well. Linda Ronstadt surely would be quite proud of this most gifted young artist – as well as her supremely talented band mates! Each and every one of them delivered 100% and then some. I am certain they will all be blessed with long and continually successful careers. Looking forward to their next appearance in NJ…in the meantime, I hope you all have a safe and successful tour!”

“What an amazing performance!!!! Thank you for coming to Evanston”
– Gary, Fan, Evanston, IL

“We decided to see your show last minute Friday at the Aracada and I was expecting some nice Linda Ronstadt songs and have a couple drinks. We were completely blown away by you and the band. We are still talking about it, and we saw Hamilton Saturday! Even though we were in a small space, you sang your heart out as if you were at the Allstate Arena. You are all passionate about her music. The last thing that made the night so special was the humility you and the band had. That you were so grateful to be able to play, even a tiny little place in suburbia. Made us feel special. Don’t forget this. See you next time you come in town.”
– Terri, Fan, Wheaton, IL,

“I’ve always loved Linda’s signature look of a flower in her hair. Usually a red Hibiscus. She is my favorite female singers of all time and you sound so much like her. What an amazing tribute to her! I hope you’ve met her & she knows about your band!”
⁃ Carmella, Fan

“Great performance!”
– Eileen, Fan

“I knew this was going to be a good show when, in sound check, Tristan sang for the first time and an older gentleman who had arrived early exclaimed “Holy S#*%!!!”. I looked at him and laughed because I was thinking the same thing.”
– Music on Main Street, Woodbridge, NJ

“Many years ago my wife and I went to see Linda at the Radio City Music Hall in New York. At first my wife was downed by the news that the show was sold out. I said let’s go and meet the scalpers outside the theatre. We wound up in the 1st row, 1st balcony. This past Sunday we had the privilege to see your group in Woodbrige NJ. I had all the same chills and found myself saying ‘Oh my goodness’. It was truly an experience beyond belief.”
– Uncredited Fan, Woodbridge, NJ

“Just go see them in your neighborhood. What a talent, what a voice and what a band.”
– Joe, fan

“Maybe the BEST Tribute band ever! This young lady is amazing. I’m sure she will have a successful career with her Linda Ronstadt show, but also as an artist in her own right. Just incredible!”
– Russ, Fan, YouTube

“Tristan and the Band are simply amazing!”
– Corey, Fan, Greenback, TN
