Gordon shared the stage with Marty Rainone and Carol Hashe-Rainone for a 40 minute round. Marty and Carol, former Nashvillians, friends, and co-writers were back for their first visit since moving to California in 2012. A bunch of friends came out to enjoy the show, and it was a great round. Thanks, to everyone who came out.

Meanwhile, Gordon is continuing to expand his performances at senior facilities in the greater Nashville Area, doing mostly 50s and early 60s rock and country, and an occasional original.
Gordon will be part of a 3 person 1 hour round at Eddie Paul’s writers night on Tuesday, April 28th from 8 – 9 P.M. This writers night has been taking place at BAR 404 (404 Elysian Fields Road, just off Nolensville Rd.) on the 4th Tuesday of the month, and has featured some very talented performing songwriters. At this time, the other two writers in Gordon’s round are still being determined.
Gordon has begun performing at Senior communities. On March 25th, he performed at Green Hills Health and Rehabilitation Center for patients on the dementia floor, doing old standards and country and rock’n’roll from the 50s and early 60s (And one original). The response was very gratifying, and another date is being lined up, probably in May. This is the first of several performances scheduled at nursing homes, assisted living, and independent living centers, with hopefully more to come.
Gordon’s song “I’m Still Here”, co-written with Marty Rainone, now appears on The Rains Americana debut CD, “Stubborn Dreams”, which was just released in August.

Gordon will have a cut on the Rains upcoming CD, (“Stubborn Dreams”) with the working person’s anthem “I’m Still Here”, co-written with Rains member Marty Rainone, many years ago.

Gordon’s version is also available on iTunes, Amazon and other music stores, and can also be accessed from the music page of his website, gordonellismusic.com.
