All Finn the family

Performance: Siblings reunite in Los Alamos Friday night

By Jennifer Garcia

Sibling rivalry often pushes children to try and out-do one another in various activities such as sports, games and academics. For the Finn family, music is no exception.
Ryan and Johnny Finn, along with their sister Madeleine Finn Thibodeaux are musicians and siblings. Despite the fact that they all have their own ways of performing music,  they will regroup to bring the sounds of jazz to Fuller Lodge at 7 p.m. Friday.
The quartet is usually made up of Ryan Finn, band leader, trombonist; Robin Holloway, pianist; Andy Zadrozny, bassist; and drummer Loren Bienvenue. However, Finn’s siblings, percussionsist Johnny; vocalist and trombonist Madeline; saxophonist William will join him on stage, along with drummer Paul Thibodeaux and trumpet player Russell Scharf.
Ryan describes the competition with his brother Johnny as “gentle” and said it helped push the brothers into music.
“High school band, under Pam Towry, kept us both keenly interested and helped to teach us the basic concepts,” he said.
Ryan began playing piano as a young child, but in fourth grade, he picked up the trumpet.
