He was a passionate guy known to light a fire under those he taught, coached and counseled to find and pursue their own passions as well.

The Everly Brothers Experience featuring The Zmed Brothers
Aug. 13 – 7:30 p.m. ($25)
Since 2016, brothers Zachary and Dylan Zmed, along with their partner and drummer Burleigh Drummond, have celebrated the pivotal music and history of The Everly Brothers legacy with enthusiastic crowds all across the U.S. and overseas in prestigious venues. They say, “ The music of the 50s and 60s are nostalgic for us, our parents raised us all 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 do our best in honoring the aesthetics of their iconic sound and in honoring the important role they played in pioneering the rock n’ roll movement, all while having a little fun sharing our own personal story.” And they do just that. The Zmed Brothers continuously strive to pay homage to their personal roots by always infusing an instinctual blend of entertainment (a la Smothers Brothers) and contextual education in their performance.
