Event: Get Tickets for Everly Brothers Experience Concert in Air Conditioned Comfort
The Everly Brothers Experience Zmed Brothers and the Bird Dogs Band are returning to Shenandoah with a concert to help preserve the Everly Brothers history in Shenandoah, IA, their childhood home. The benefit concert will be held at the air conditioned Shenandoah High School Gladys Wirsig Jones Auditorium 1000 Mustang Drive on June 24th at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at Shenandoah Chamber 619 W. Sheridan Avenue, the Depot Restaurant 101 Railroad Street or online at www.shenandoahiowa.net. Cost is $15 in advance and $20 at the door. The Concert will also be broadcast live on KMA Radio, 960 AM. The world famous, Grammy winning Everly singing duo grew-up in and learned to sing and play guitar on live radio with their parents on Shenandoah’s nursery radio stations KMA and KFNF. Their history in Shenandoah is being preserved in a small house where they lived as young boys in the 1940s. The house was moved in 2005 to its current location downtown next to the Shenandoah Historical Museum at 800 W. Sheridan Avenue. The renovation and displays at the house continues to develop. The Everly Brothers Foundation also gives an educational scholarship each spring to a high school senior and to Shenandoah Middle School student needs. This year’s senior recipient was Lindsey Wiesen. This year beside replacing the pole banners outside the childhood home and finishing trim around the window and doors the Everly Brothers Foundation Committee is focused on raising funds for interactive video display technology. The 42” touch screen interface will resemble an old time radio. On the screen visitors will be able to view short movies, video of their performances, video of the homecoming activities in 1986, photos of memorabilia and audio of their music. The local Everly Brothers Foundation Committee has applied for several grants to help fund the $19,000 video unit. So far a Wal-Mart Community Grant has contributed $2,500 and KMA Broadcasting has committed $3,000 to the project. The committee is waiting a July 1st decision on a state $12,110 Historical Resource Development Program Grant. A Greater Shenandoah Foundations grant is paying for video production showing Shenandoah Everly history. The committee, made up of locals Bill Hillman, Shelly Warner, John Van Nostrand, and historic preservationists Sherry and Sheryl Davis of Trimble, Ohio, is looking to expand their volunteer list and raise the final piece of the funding for the video unit with ticket sales to the Everly Experience Concert. If you’d like to be a part of the preservation efforts and fundraising call the chamber at 712-246-3455. “Every $15 ticket sold gets us closer to our goal of sharing the Shenandoah/Everly Story,” said Shenandoah Chamber Marketing Director Shelly Warner. “We need the communities support. Everyone should attend the concert, not only to support the cause, but to learn about the history. Everly Brothers were very influential in the development of rock n roll and many artists who followed them.” The Everly history is a major part of the Zmed Brothers show. “They are dedicated to keeping the music alive and educating the audience about the Everly Brothers music and influence on rock n roll,” said Warner. “They share interesting details about the songs, the writers and lives of the Everly family in a light hearted amusing way. They were a huge hit last fall at the Shenfest concert.” The Zmed Brothers also made a short film about their experience in Shenandoah last fall that is now part of their act. They will show the film during the Everly Brother Experience Concert on June 24th. Their Everly enthusiasm began in January 2016 when brothers Zachary and Dylan Zmed and their partner Burleigh Drummond began developing The Everly Brothers Experience Show. Since then they have celebrated the pivotal sound 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, “Our aim is to honor the aesthetics of their iconic sound and honor their unique place in music history all while telling our own personal story.” Their father is Adrian Zmed a traveling singer/dancer/actor and their mother Barbara a second grade teacher in Southern CA. They continually strive to pay homage to their roots by always infusing an instinctual blend of entertainment and education in their show.
