Tabard Theatre announces Songs of Linda Ronstadt Live tribute concert

Friday, Jun 2 at 8pm

San Jose, CA May 17, 2023—Tabard Theatre announces another evening celebrating the treasure-trove of music from legendary 11-time Grammy-winner Linda Ronstadt. Vocalist Sony Holland’s powerful yet delicate voice brings the sound of Ronstadt to life on Tabard’s intimate cabaret stage, backed by her full band. Tickets for Songs of Linda Ronstadt are available for in-person and livestream attendees on Friday, June 2. Doors at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. Single tickets are $25 for General Admission and $35 for reserved Cabaret table seating. For those unable to enjoy the show live that night, the high-quality recording will be available as an on-demand purchase for one month following the show.

Audiences will experience Ronstadt’s most beloved songs from the decade in which she became a star, like “You’re No Good,” “When Will I Be Loved,” “Poor Poor Pitiful Me,” “I Can’t Help It If I Still Love You,” “Desperado,” and “Blue Bayou.”  — and then journey on with the band to some of the star’s later reinventions of herself, including jazz standards and other musical forays.

“I love her choices,” Holland said. “Like me, she grew up with the radio being her best friend, and she loved everything. Nobody can sing a rock song like Linda, with such precision, and then turn around and do a soft, sweet country heart-breaker, and then do something classical and traditional, and absolutely nail every one of them.”

Vocalist Sony Holland has been developing a loyal South Bay following after bringing her Ronstadt Tribute to Tabard last November, and following it up with her Dusty Springfield tribute in February. Holland began her musical career as a San Francisco street busker, singing for tourists at Pier 39 and Ghirardelli Square, but eventually earned her way to appearances in some of the country’s top music venues from coast to coast, including the Blue Note in New York City, Herb Alpert’s Vibrato in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Jazz Center. Along with anchoring a three year residency at the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, Holland has worked internationally, singing with an array of jazz combos in Tokyo, Bangkok and Hong Kong.

Tabard Theatre (formerly Theatre on San Pedro Square) — San Jose’s “Hidden Gem” venue for the performing arts—  is located in the heart of historic San Pedro Square in downtown San Jose amid a bustling restaurant district.  This intimate and unique venue brings a touch of Manhattan to the South Bay with its rustic yet edgy feel. Old brick walls, plush leather seats, antique wood plank floors, sweeping red velvet drapes and a 35-foot mahogany bar create a casual cabaret atmosphere. The three-quarter round cabaret stage— described by artists as “a room that feels big and small at the same time” — is the perfect setting for live music and comedy.
