Red Elvises Play Los Alamos Summer Concert At Pond

on June 17, 2018 - 7:10am
Red Elvises band leader Igor Yuzov uses his guitar as a weapon during the Friday night Summer Concert at Ashley Pond Park. Yuzov was born in Germany, raised in Ukraine and studied in Russia. He grew up in the former Soviet Union, where folk music was the norm and rock’n’roll was illegal. A rebellious streak, however, led him to seek out the forbidden music. As soon as it became possible, Igor left Russia for America with his ‘Folk’n’Roll’ band Limpopo and was personally greeted by Ronald Reagan. In 1993, Limpopo won Ed McMahon’s Star Search and their popularity began to blossom.
