The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

The Everly Broth­ers Ex­pe­ri­ence, fea­tur­ing the Zmed Broth­ers and The Bird Dogs Band, will be the first con­cert in the 2018-2019 Stars for Saskatchewan con­cert se­ries hosted by the Swift Cur­rent Arts Coun­cil.

The con­cert will be held at the Liv­ing Sky Casino’s Event Cen­tre at 7:30 p.m. on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 27. The show cel­e­brates the in­flu­en­tial mu­si­cal legacy of The Everly Broth­ers, who sold more than 35 mil­lion records and re­leased three chart top­ping sin­gles and 35 songs which reached the top 100 sin­gles list be­tween 1957 to 1962. Phil and Don Everly burst onto the scene with their first number one sin­gle Wake Up Lit­tle Susie in late 1957, fol­lowed by All I Have To Do Is Dream in May 1958, and their big­gest sell­ing hit Cathy’s Clown in May 1960. The Everly Broth­ers are cred­ited with in­flu­enc­ing nu­mer­ous groups dur­ing the for­ma­tive years of Rock n’ Roll with their har­monies.

The Everly Broth­ers Ex­pe­ri­ence show was first de­vel­oped in early 2016, and has toured reg­u­larly over the sub­se­quent years. Zachary and Dy­lan Zmed pro­vide the vo­cals, with the back­ing of three other mu­si­cians.

The con­cert is not an im­per­son­ation of the Everly’s, but the show aims to “hon­our the aes­thet­ics of their iconic sound and hon­our their unique place in mu­sic his­tory, all while hav­ing a lit­tle fun telling our own per­sonal story.”

The Everly Broth­ers Ex­pe­ri­ence will be in Canada for 11 dates, and this Novem­ber they will be per­form­ing 11 shows in Ire­land and the United King­dom be­fore wrap­ping up their Euro­pean tour with three con­certs in Paris, France.
