Cleverly Everly recreate the music of the fabulous Everly Brothers and also delve into the rich musical archive of the 60s.
The band includes former BBC Points West Correspondent Clinton Rogers, (swapping his camera for a guitar), his brother Stan, his wife Uta and lead guitarist Steve Craig. Like the original Everlys, it is a family affair! They have enjoyed tremendous success since forming a tribute act to “our favourite musicians” more than seven years ago.
They have played to capacity audiences across the West – including Taunton Brewhouse.
The show consists of two halves; the first is dedicated almost solely to the music of the Everly Brothers and primarily features the two brothers (Clint and Stan Rogers). In the second half, the band expands from a two to a four piece and, in addition to more Everlys numbers, they will pay tribute to some of the finest artists of the 60s, from Elvis Presley to Dusty Springfield, from Cliff Richard and The Shadows to the Beach Boys.
The show is not just a collection of songs but is really all about nostalgia and reminiscing. As Clinton puts it: “People have to leave with a smile on their face – it’s mandatory!”
