Live ON STAGE for Sunday Brunch Show!

 —  —

Monterey Court, 505 W Miracle Mile, Tucson, AZ

My first live--not just online--event in a while. This will be an outdoor brunch show, with social distancing required. Solo, with the possibility of a guest sitting in from 6 feet away! Reservations highly recommended: 520-207-2429.


Wally Lawder and the Stragglers! Poolside Show with BBQ

Tucson Racquet Club, 4001 N. Country Club Road , Tucson, AZ

This show was scheduled a long time ago! Depending on where we are at with recommendations with social distancing come August, we will play--but check in closer to the show. Full band in a delightful outdoor setting with great BBQ meal available! $3 cover (free for TRC members).


Wally Lawder and Suzy Ronstadt Social Distance Show

Catalina Craft Pizza, 15930 N Oracle Rd, Catalina, AZ

We are happy to return for the LAST of Catalina Craft Pizza's social distance live shows! Suzy and I will perform mostly originals with a few covers here and there. The idea is to serenade people picking up their to-go orders at Catalina Pizza, or to provide a bit of a "drive-in movie" type of experience. Car parking is blocked off in a checkerboard pattern and people are invited to stay for a while before or after their pickup or even eat in their cars or bring folding chairs. This isn't really a concert--that would be out of sync with advised precautions, but a way to lift the spirits of curbside pick-ups while respecting social distancing. So... we'd love to see you but if you come by please be sure you are supporting Catalina Craft Pizza by ordering food to pick up! Phone 520.825.0140, Website (with menu): . 15930 N. Oracle, Catalina, AZ .

I just migrated this website over to another host so it will be a little messy for while, but for now I hope this gives you a bit of a picture of my music.

Here's a music video,  filmed in Hawaii, featuring one of the songs on my most recent CD. This one is called "The Tide".



I feel quite blessed to sit beside the beautiful wellspring of Music, to write songs and to have the privilege of performing them (live or recorded) with and for others. I hope you enjoy visiting my website!
