The Everly Brothers Experience at Lime Tree Theatre
11:00 - 13:00
The Zmed Brothers & the Bird Dogs Band bring a genuine and youthful Everly Brothers Experience to the stage.
When the guitar became electric, The Everly Brothers bridged the gap between country and R&B, creating Rock ‘n’ Roll that had never been heard before. With countless hits and classics, The Everly Brothers inspired artists like The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Simon and Garfunkel, The Kinks, and many groups that utilize the blend of two part harmony. Their career spanned three decades and they continue to influence artists around the world.
The Zmeds say, “Our aim is to honor the aesthetics of their iconic sound and honor their unique place in music history all while telling our own personal story,” and they do just that. Growing up with a father, (Adrian Zmed) as a traveling singer/dancer/actor(Grease 2, Bachelor Party, T.J. Hooker), and a mother (Barbara) as 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 in their performance.
The 5 piece band consists of drums (Burleigh Drummond), electric guitar (rotating members), bass (rotating members), and the two singing brothers (Zachary and Dylan Zmed) up front with the signature Everly acoustic guitars. The whole group is absolutely thrilled to be contributing to a cause that supports the recognition and preservation of the intimate origins of American’s greatest Rock n’ Roll singing sibling duo.
