Igor and the Red Elvises, brings the party to Los Alamos Friday.
The Red Elvises started out as a Siberian wedding band, an ambitious Russian folk band named Limpopo, coming to the United States in the mid-1980’s. They lived in Santa Monica, Calif., and became popular there. They were introduced to President Ronald Reagan as a “hellipcrazy” Russian Folk ‘n’ Roll group, and in 1993 won on Ed McMahon’s International Star Search TV show. The Red Elvises formed in 1995 after lead singer, Igor Yuzov had a dream where Elvis Presley told him to become a rocker.
“Fans from Los Alamos to Los Angeles, Seattle to Miami and all around the world (yes, the world) say, ‘Oh, you have to see them live. They’re so much fun!’ I’d bet there’s at least a thousand people in this town alone who agree,” Organizer Russell Gordon said. “They’re tremendous showmen. They’re always touring, always evolving. They’re talented and entertaining. I was checking them out on Facebook and there are a whole lot of new songs. There are some new members yet they’re still a tight band and very talented. Even if they aren’t your favorite band, they could be yours as they are mine, favorite “party” band.”
