“Well friends of the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series, we’re down to our last show of the year,” said Coordinator Russ Gordon. “I hoped you enjoyed the shows. Again, I’d like to thank our sponsors and especially Los Alamos County. They sure built a beautiful stage.”
All of the sponsors are all listed at gordonssummerconcerts.com. Acknowledge these vendors and when possible, shop locally. The sponsors all pay taxes to the County and therefore help pay for the concert series.
The final show of the 25th Anniversary Series will be by the Fort Collins, Colorado band, Whitewater Ramble (whitewaterramble.com).
The quintet plays what they call “high-octane Rocky Mountain Dancegrass.” They start with bluegrass instruments, guitar, stand-up bass, mandolin, fiddle and then add drums. They combine bluegrass, soul, funk, country, gospel, jazz, dance, salsa, disco, Caribbean, hip-hop, reggae and rock. Whitewater Ramble has played every major venue in the Rocky Mountain region including the festivals in Telluride, Rocky Grass and Lyons. They’ve played all the “not necessarily bluegrass fests,” plus the beer fests. On Thursday night before hustling down here for the gig, they played at the Fly Me To the Moon Saloon in Telluride.
