124 W. Broadway Eugene Or.
New York based pianist and vocalist Louis Landon performs in a classic jazz trio setting with bassist Dusty Carlson and drummer Jim Douglas.
Louis Landon (endorsed by Steinway Pianos) has pursued a long and diverse musical career. Essential elements and roles include diplomat, humorist, entrepreneur, technician, visionary, politician, philosopher, activist, and artisan. A well-rounded, magnetic personality combines with his obvious gift for performing a range of musical styles. He has performed and touring with such mainstream names and international icons as Mikhail Baryshnikov, John Payne, Rupert Holmes, and John Hall. From classical repertoire to jazz, pop and rock, Landon has used his expressive gifts and talent to his full advantage for others.
Peacekeeper is the muse most recently peering over Landon’s shoulder. Louis upholds a passionate belief that music is the most significant and likely medium to bring peace and harmony to a weary, and war-torn world.
