THE LINDA RONSTADT EXPERIENCE
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!
The LRE is comprised of our musical director Adam Michael Rothberg (producer, songwriter and sideman) on keyboards, guitars and harmony vocals. Also on guitars and harmony vocals, a recent transplant to NYC by way of Nashville, is Bronson Bush. The newest member of the band, drummer Ethan Leff keeps the engine room humming alongside veteran bassist Paul (Junior) Boyne, who is also the bands founder. Rounding out the bands sound on alternating shows are seasoned multi-instrumentalists Peter Adams and Andy Santospago contributing pedal steel, guitars, harmonica, banjo and harmonies.
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.

Why is there a difference in price for available seats at The Music Room?
All seating at The Music Room is acquired with a first come, first served basis approach. The Music Room provides all patrons with a live musical experience above and beyond your average concert hall, and supporting this vision are the 4 tiers of available seats at The Music Room. With a nod to classic record sales certification, the 4 tiers are: Diamond, Double Platinum, Platinum, and Gold. Seats range in price based on several factors including artist availability and distance to the stage.
Do you have the same number of seats for each tier?
No. The Diamond tier of seats only has 12 seats available. These seats are 4 top rounds located right at the foot of the stage. You cannot get any closer to the artist than these 12 seats. These are considered premium seats and are usually purchased by the most ardent fans.
The Double Platinum sections features 4 top square tables and one special 2 top rectangle, and there are 14 seats available. Still very close to the stage, these seats provide an exceptional view and personal experience. Table no. 7 is a 2 top rectangle that sits just to the right of the stage and back approximately 6 feet. It is an extremely popular table.
The Platinum section of seats has a mixture of 4 top squares, two 3 high top rounds, and 9 drink rail seats that are bar height. The total number of seats in the Platinum section is 37. These are all excellent seats and reside in the main room. Depending on a viewer’s personal taste, a table, a high top, or a drink rail might be the right choice, but they are all fabulous and unobstructed.
Gold seating is available in the bar area and can be considered first come, first serve general admission. Most of the seats are unobstructed but depending how patrons sit at the bar or high tops, there might be a slight obstruction. Standing room is permitted in the Gold section. The sound is excellent and most Gold level tickets are purchased by patrons that want to be near the bar specifically or by patrons wanting to be further away from the stage by design. Please refer to our pictures to determine if this area is what you are looking for. There are 24 Gold seats available and or Standing Room.
