LINDA RONSTADT TRIBUTE sung by SONY HOLLAND*
Peninsula JCC, Foster City, CA
September 10, 2023: 4PM
During the pandemic, San Francisco resident Sony Holland filmed an on-demand streamed concert with guitar accompaniment entitled: “Songs of Linda Ronstadt”. The stream was seen by thousands worldwide. Sony is anxious to do this tribute live.
In May, the SOLD OUT live World Premiere was staged in Petaluma. This was followed in succession by the Central Coast debut in Carmel, the South Bay premiere in Palo Alto, the San Francisco debuts in Glen Park & FiDi, more South Bay shows in Los Altos and San Jose, East Bay premiere in Walnut Creek, 2 Peninsula performances in Pacifica, and now a show at Peninsula JCC in Foster City. The live show has evolved since its humble beginning in Petaluma, where Sony was backed by a guitar only. The current show will feature a band similar to Linda Ronstadt’s 1971 tour when Linda hand picked single musicians: guitar, keys, bass, and drums at the Troubadour open-mike night to go on the road with her. This core band decided to stay together after the tour and called themselves the Eagles!
International multi-genre vocalist Sony Holland started her career as lead singer for a rock band in the Midwest. She moved to Nashville and experienced the country music scene. Sony also has a love for jazz. She has incorporated all these types of music in her performances.
Sony Holland has headlined at Yoshi’s, SFJAZZ, Top of the Mark, Sausalito Art Festival, Feinstein's, completed a three year residency at SF Ritz-Carlton, and opened for George Benson at Rodney Strong. She has performed internationally in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Japan, Paris, New York City, Nashville, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Denver. Sony has recorded eight albums.
