Berlin – The Everly Brothers Experience will be live at the Arts Center at St. Kieran’s on Friday, May 11th starting at 7:00 pm. Tickets for the show, $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for those under 18 and are available on line until 3 days prior (www.stkieranarts.org) for a small additional fee, at the arts center office and at the door on the evening of the show.
In January of 2016, brothers Zachary and Dylan Zmed (acoustic guitars/vocals) and their partner (drummer in the group) Burleigh Drummond began developing The Everly Brothers Experience show. Since then, they have celebrated the pivotal sounds of The Everly Brothers music with enthusiastic crowds all across the US and overseas in iconic clubs, theaters, performing arts centers, casinos, ballrooms, and coliseums. The Zmeds say, “We are not impersonators. Our aim is to honor the aesthetics of their iconic sound and honor their unique place in music history all while having a little fun telling our own personal story,” and they do just that.
Growing up with a father, (Adrian Zmed), a traveling singer/dancer/actor (Grease 2 Bachelor Party, T.J. Hooker), and a mother (Barbara) a second grade teacher in a suburb of Los Angeles, the Zmed Brothers continually strive to pay homage to their roots by always infusing an instinctual blend of entertainment (a la Smothers Brothers) and contextual education into their performances.
From 1957 to 1962 The Everly brothers sold more than 35 million records and had 35 billboard top -100 singles, 26 in the top 40, and still to this day, carry the record for most billboard charting hits of any American Duo. Their success, at that time, was only rivaled by Elvis. The Bird Dogs and The Zmed Brothers are absolutely thrilled to be able to contribute to a cause that supports the recognition and preservation of the intimate origins of America's greatest Rock n' Roll singing sibling duo.
