Experience the  Everly Brothers in Kilkenny

Zmed brothers take on Everly Brothers in Kilkenny

The Everly Brothers experience featuring the Zmed brothers will be held at the Watergate Theatre on Friday, November 21.
Since the beginning of 2016, The Zmed Brothers have celebrated the pivotal music and history of The Everly Brothers legacy with enthusiastic crowds all across the US and over seas in prestigious venues.
The Zmeds said: “​​​​The music of the 1950s and 1960s are nostalgic to us, our parents raised us on it, and we feel that the Everly's contribution is greatly overlooked, especially by younger generations.
“Our aim is not to impersonate but to honour their iconic sound and highlight the role they played pioneering the rock n' roll movement, all while having a little fun telling our own personal story,” and they do just that.
The Everly brothers career lasted over half a century, they recorded 21 studio albums, sold more than 60 million records world wide, had over 30 billboard top -100 singles, among the highest ranking of any rock duo ever, they received numerous accolades in their later career, and influenced countless legendary artists that came after them including The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Bee Gees, Neil Young.. and the list goes on.
The Zmed Brothers are thrilled to contribute​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ to a cause that supports the recognition and preservation of the intimate and singular origins of America's greatest.
