BBC Points West reporter Clinton Rogers teams up with brother to the tune of the Everlys

SIBLINGS Clinton and Stan Rogers have established a tribute act to recreate the music of the Everly Brothers.
They’ve spent six months rehearsing in an attempt to emulate the harmonies of one of the most successful duos in music history.
BBC Points West reporter Clinton, who previously worked for the County Gazette and lives in Bradford-on-Tone, said: “It’s pretty tough – the phrasing and the harmonies are unique and getting close to the Everlys’ sound has taken a little time.”
The Rogers Brothers call themselves Cleverly Everly and one of their first gigs is at Clavelshay Restaurant, near North Petherton, on Friday, November 8.
The brothers have performed in various bands in Somerset for more than 30 years, but rarely together.
Clinton said: “I suddenly thought it was time for the two of us to get together and do something as a duo.
“The Everlys sprang to mind because they’re two of our favourite musicians and their repertoire is vast.”
