OTTAWA – The Ottawa Concert Association will present The Everly Set on Sept. 14. At this OCA season opener, concert goers will be reminded of the great history of the famed brothers.
In 1957, teenagers Phil and Don Everly released mega-hits “Bye Bye Love” and “Wake Up Little Susie,” supercharging the vocal sound of rock ‘n roll and unleashing the sparkling, brotherly harmony that would influence The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, The Hollies, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bob Dylan, The Bee Gees and The Eagles. Their impact on popular music throughout the 60s and 70s in immeasurable.
Now, six decades later, two highly acclaimed singer-songwriters have combined forces to become The Everly Set. An honest approximation of the originals.
Sean Altman, (Rockapella founder and Carmen Sandiego theme song composer) and rocker Jack Skuller, (winner of the Songwriters Hall of Fame Holly prize and former Disney radio and record artist) bring the Everly’s sparkling hits to life with bravado and visual style. An affectionate humor and deep appreciation of this music and the brothers Everly, are clearly abundant and the basis of The Everly Set.
Bye Bye Love, Wake Up Little Susie, Cathy’s Clown, All I Have To Do Is Dream, When Will I Be Loved, Crying In The Rain, Bird Dog, Claudette, and many more classic hits are on schedule for this supercharged performance.
