It was a warm October evening at The Hangar Restaurant in Stayner when Wendy Laurier and her band serenaded a crowd of 200 people on the outdoor stage and patio with their awesome sound-alike tribute to the 1970’s Queen of Rock, Linda Ronstadt. Between songs, Wendy would share interesting stories of Ronstadt’s extensive musical career. Her rock-solid band, along with their clear vocal harmonies, were as sweet as Linda herself loved them. Wendy was recently asked to send Linda Ronstadt a performance of one of her favourite Spanish songs as a 75th Birthday gift. The tribute evening was a fund-raiser for Hospice Simcoe.
