Rogers brothers tune up for Everlys tribute
9:30am Saturday 2nd November 2013 in News
SIBLINGS Clinton and Stan Rogers have established a tribute act to recreate the music of the Everly Brothers.
They have spent six months rehearsing in an attempt to emulate the harmonies of one of the most successful duos in music.
BBC Points West reporter Clint, who previously worked for the News’ sister paper the County Gazette and lives near Taunton, 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.
They have performed in bands for over 30 years, but rarely together.
Clint said: “I thought it was time the two of us got together to do something as a duo, and the Everlys sprang to mind because they’re two of our favourite musicians and their repertoire is vast.”
Stan, who works at the UK Hydrographic Office in Taunton and lives in Monkton Heathfield, said: “We’re looking forward to it, but obviously feeling a little nervous.”
