Russian rock ’n rollers

 The Red Elvises are coming to Los Alamos Friday as part of the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series. The show will run from 7-10 p.m. at Ashley Pond. The original members of the band came out of Moscow, Russia as a folk and folk rock band. The band eventually moved to Santa Monica, Calif. While there, singer/band leader/guitarist Igor, met Elvis Presley in a dream and the king told him to “start rockin’, man.” By 1995, they morphed into a Siberian surf-rock, Russo-American rock band and became a major part of a street concert series in Santa Monica called the 3RD Street Promenade Series. Their popularity grew and was became evident when the City of Santa Monica took Igor and the Red Elvises to court, to try and get them to quit playing on the streets because the crowds were too big.
