For 20 years Russ Gordon has helped Los Alamos rock.
He has brought everything from the blues to zydeco for the community to feast their ears. The sound celebration will continue at 7 p.m. May 15 at Overlook Park in White Rock.
Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers will be the first band to take the stage for this year’s Los Alamos County Summer Concert series.
“I’ve been a big fan of theirs for a long time,” Gordon said.
It’s more than just music. Gordon said he and Piazza also share a birthday, Dec. 18.
He added, “I love the boogie woogie … his wife is a great keyboard player. It’s a real fun blues. It makes you want to dance. It makes you want to holler.”
Gordon said he became introduced to Piazza while he owned his music store.
“I was in the music business,” he explained. “(I) had a store in Los Alamos for 17 years. Every day for 17 years we talked music. Talked and played music.”
What distinguishes Piazza from others is that he is one of the top harmonica players in the world, Gordon said.
