A Note to Russ—

We appreciate all you do for our community, these concerts have a way of creating a "town hall meeting every Friday night," fun to see folks just chilling at the end of a work week. So many new folks that have moved to our community see these concerts as a pleasant surprise that adds to their appreciation of their new community. Always fun supporting this event. Count me in next year.

Good evening Russ. Thanks again for such a fun concert in such an awesome venue Friday night. It felt like the mountain was absorbing the music and sending it right back to us to enjoy. A good time was had by all.

You make LA Rock, with all the great bands and music you bring into town. Looks like alot more at Ashleys Pond—love that place. Thanks for all your hard work to make this happen!
Dear Russ Gordon,

I just wanted to let you know how much your concerts mean to Los Alamos. You are a local celebrity and legend, because you, more than anyone else, have joined community and music to bring everyone together.

Amazing concerts aside I just wanted to let you know that I have known you since Gordon's was an arcade and ice cream shop in White Rock. My little brother beat The Ninja Turtles Arcade game at Gordon's when he was about 7 with a single roll of quarters and those were some of the best times of my life. When you moved to Los Alamos, I was sad to see the games and ice cream go, but in my teenage years, I always knew I could walk in, hum a few bars, and you could figure out the track and have the CD in for me within days.

I live in London now, and constantly wish there was a Gordon's here (I'm so terrible with artist and song names!) I just felt that, in case no one ever told you, you should know what you mean to the community.

Thanks for everything!

Hi there,

I try to drive up to Los Alamos on Friday afternoons for the concert and to see my son.

It is such a pleasure to join the Los Alamos community every Friday night—I was there Friday night on June 15th for The Police Experience. Great concert!

Thanks for the a lovely evening.

Meet Russ Gordon
You may have noticed Russ' fondness of water and how jovial he becomes at Ashley Pond. When Russ was 6 years old, he fell overboard while on a cruise (more)
