  • Familiarity can breed a great time when it comes to the Los Alamos rock band Eddy and the Nomads. The band plays at 7 p.m. Friday at Del Norte Credit Union. Sponsors of the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series are presenting the free concert.
    The Nomads have been playing Los Alamos concerts for about 30 years. Members have come and gone except for Wilfred Romero, a founding member. Eddy Partridge joined a few years later. The band’s name changed to Eddy and the Nomads a few years ago, when they discovered that “Nomads” had way too many listings on the web. Eddy and Wilfred play lead and rhythm guitars. Bob Carmen is the bassist and Ringo Davey is the drummer.
