Everly Bros. Experience with Zmed Brothers at The Tower
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 over seas 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) 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.
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. there success at that time, was only rivaled by Elvis. The Bird Dogs and The Zmed Brothers are absolutely thrilled to be able to contribut to a cause that supports the recognition and preservation of the intimate origins of America's greatest Rock n' Roll singing sibling duo.
This performance is presented by the nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation and sponsored by Bend Surgery Center with additional support from Central Oregon Radiology, Salvesen Homes, Bend Magazine, Hasson Company Realtors, Immersion Brewing, and Sally Russell. Performance Sponsors are Taylor Northwest, and Steve and Cynde Magidson.
