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.

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, and 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.
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. 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
