Gallo Center Hosting Celebration Of Linda Ronstadt’s Career

MODESTO — The nationally-renowned tribute artist, Gesenia, and her six-piece band Ronstadt Revue bring their ‘Ultimate Celebration of Linda Ronstadt’ to the Gallo Center for the Arts in Modesto on Friday, March 24, at 7:30 p.m.

Further information and tickets are available at or by calling 209-338-2100.

Ronstadt Revue celebrates the famed singer’s 40+ year career, by spanning all of her many musical genres (country, rock, pop, American Standards, Cajun and even Spanish-language material — sung with native fluency by vocalist Gesenia, who is herself Latina).

The band is so authentic and true to the spirit of Linda Ronstadt that Ms. Ronstadt’s own former guitarist, John Beland, will be appearing as their special guest at the Gallo Center concert. After working with Ms. Ronstadt, Beland went on to play and record with Rick Nelson, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Kris Kristofferson, the Bellamy Brothers, and as a member of the legendary Flying Burrito Brothers. He has also authored two books about his life as a touring and studio musician, the latest being “Pass the Guitar and I’ll Tell You a Story” (2022). The Gallo Center audience can count on hearing at least a few good stories about the author’s time touring with Linda Ronstadt.
