Sellersville Reaction

Bio/Highlights:

Ronstadt Revue is a 7-piece ensemble of world-class, professional musicians out of South Jersey/Philadelphia that covers the entire career of Linda Ronstadt (all genres including Spanish-language material). The group (now completing its first season of performance) is led by the remarkable vocalist, Gesenia, who doesn’t just channel Ronstadt’s vibrant sound, she embodies her very spirit. Indeed, the group is so authentic and professional that it has racked up high praise from three of Linda Ronstadt’s own former band members: Dan Dugmore, John Beland and Herb Steiner.

First season performance highlights include:

  • Riviera Theatre, North Tonawanda, NY – 500 seats paid at $20
  • Bristol, Rhode Island – 2,000 member audience (free outdoor festival)
  • Bethany Beach, Delaware – 1,000 member audience (free outdoor festival)
  • Sellersville Theater, Sellersville, PA – 280 seats paid at $22/$30 (near-capacity)
  • The Locks at Sona, Philadelphia, PA – 110 paid at $20/$25 (sold out)
  • Lizzie Rose Music Room, Tuckerton, NJ – Two sold out shows, each 75 sold at $32/$37

All shows have been met with wildly-enthusiastic standing ovations from the audiences and invitations from management to return the following season.

Typical theater manager quotes include:

“I want to thank you and commend you for your stellar performance on June 29 at the 2019 Bristol RI 4th of July Concert Series. Your show was more than anyone expected. On a scale of 1 to 10 your dedication and obvious devotion to Linda Ronstadt’s material was 10 out of 10. You and your band “covered” Linda’s actual recordings perfectly, yet displayed your own individuality and interpretation of her music. Your stage performance make your show worthy of Concerts and Corporate Functions anywhere and will please audiences of all ages and compositions. Bristol appreciated your excellent presentation and look forward to a continuing professional relationship.”
— Raymond Lavey, Chairman, Music and Entertainment, Bristol 4th of July Committee, Bristol, RI

“(We) were totally blown away by The Ronstadt Revue. Gesenia embodied Linda and eyes closed it sounded and felt like Linda. The band was tight and on cue with every song. Our audience was past pleased with their performance. The Ronstadt Revue has been here twice, both times to complete sellouts. We look forward to their return.”
— Lou Reichert, Music Coordinator, The Lizzie Rose Music Room, Tuckerton, NJ

“I hired [Ronstadt Revue] as part of our 2019 Summer Concerts Series, and the repeated response from the capacity crowd was “fabulous show!” Gesenia not only has the look, tone, and vocal strength of Linda Ronstadt, but she was also wonderful to work with from day one. She and her fellow musicians are dedicated to recreating the Ronstadt experience down to the harmonies and multi-genre set list. I highly recommend them!”
— Julie Malewski, Events Director & Media Coordinator, Town of Bethany Beach, Delaware

“Our venue was recently honored to host The Ronstadt Revue, and several hundred patrons attended the show that night, leaving us with rave reviews, and encouraging our staff to re-book them in the future. Gesenia as Linda, has an incredible voice that is powerful enough to duplicate all of the greatest hits! She and her band have a tremendous stage presence as well, and really interact with their fans. The Ronstadt Revue was an absolute pleasure to work with, and we very much look forward to their return!”
— Lindsay Pasquantino, The Riviera Theatre, North Tonawanda, NY

“I’ve worked with the Ronstadt Revue three times in the first year the act existed. All these shows were first-rate and performed very well. The band is made up of top-tier musicians, and Gesenia does the best ‘Linda’ I’ve seen anyone BUT Linda do. With a market flooded with tribute acts, the Ronstadt Revue is unique, motivated to sell tickets and easy to work with.”
— Jesse Lundy, Point Entertainment, Bryn Mawr, PA
