LINDA RONSTADT TRIBUTE

LONG LONG TIME BIO

 

With the 2019 release of the documentary, The Sound of My Voice, and with all the coverage of her battle with Parkinson’s, it is fair to say that Linda Ronstadt’s public profile hasn’t been this high in over 20 years. The same holds true with the public’s desire to hear her music. 

 

The timing couldn’t be better for the creation of the Linda Ronstadt tribute band, Long Long Time.  It makes sense, but it is a challenge to find a vocal talent capable of doing Linda Ronstadt and her songs justice. Enter Teresa Suber, former Sony Music Nashville recording artist, 7-time college entertainer of the year and 2-time college female vocalist of the year.  When asked about this challenge, Suber remarked, “Not only was her music the soundtrack of my youth, Linda Ronstadt was the artist who taught me how to sing. She also inspired me to chase my own dream of being a professional singer.  I wouldn’t be doing this unless I felt it in my heart that I could do right by Linda and her music.”

 

Teresa took the same philosophy in putting together her band of A-list musicians. Below is a sampling of the artists with whom they have performed or recorded:

 

Duane Sciacqua (Guitar, Vocals):  John Mayall, Glen Frey, Joe Walsh, Paul McCartney

 

John Bohlinger (Guitar, Pedal Steel, Harmonica, vocals):  Sheryl Crow, Lee Brice, Miranda Lambert, 

Joe Walsh, Little Big Town, Sara Evans, LeeAnn Rimes, Chris Young, Hank Williams Jr., Kenny Rogers, The Beach Boys.

 

Dave Francis (Bass, vocals) Brenda Lee, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride, Tim McGraw, Luke Combs

 

John Root (Drums) Highway 101, Rhonda Vincent, Hank Williams III

 

Collectively they comprise Long Long Time, named for Ronstadt’s first solo radio hit.  LLT transports its audiences to the 70’s, the height of Ronstadt’s popularity.  Committed to authentically presenting the Ronstadt Sound by recreating the signature solos and vocal arrangements, Teresa and her band do right by the best-selling female rock artist of the 70’s while showing Ronstadt’s music and sound is as relevant today as ever.
