Concert season going strong

Music > Gordon’s Summer Concert Series is in its 26th year in Los Alamos bringing a variety of acts from May through early September

By Gina Velasquez

The community flocks to Ashley Pond and other venues each year to take part in what some say is “the” event of the summer — The Gordons’ Summer Concert Series.
Reigning over Los Alamos for 26 years, it has always been organized by Russ Gordon. Rain or shine, the bands play on.
The series started in May with a bang — albiet, a soggy one — with a performance by the Eric McFadden Band, bringing rock and funk from the Bay area.
The next week, former Los Alamos resident James Carothers took the stage at the pond. Carothers now lives in Nashville and is on his way to country music stardom, but still takes time to remember his roots.
Each night is sponsored by one of the many organizations that take part in the concert series. KRSN night hosted the Band of Heathens, a rock and alternative group from Austin, Texas.
To kick off June, a double bill entertained the crowd — the Ryan Finn Septet, a local group teamed up with the Craig Martin Experience for a night filled with jazz.
Last week, the Jimmy Stadler Country Revue saddled up for their performance at the pond. The band is from Taos.
On Friday, the venue will change to Pajarito Mountain Ski Area, where Dan Bern, a folk and Americana singer/songwriter will take the stage. The show will be sponsored by the ski hill.
