Slovenian Savings & Loan is proud to sponsor the Arcadia Theater’s August 25 production of The Everly Brothers Experience! The Arcadia Theater, which was built in 1921, is a gem of the Windber community, and presents quality touring entertainment as well as children’s shows. If you haven’t been to the theater recently, this is a great time to go!
The Everly Brothers Experience features a five-piece band led by Dylan and Zach Smed, talented musicians who grew up in a show biz household – their father, Adrian, is a singer/actor/dancer. The Zmeds have immersed themselves in the classic folk rock music of the Everly Brothers to give as authentic an experience as possible, while putting their own mark on the show. They explain, “We are not impersonators – our aim is to honor the aesthetics of the Everlys’ iconic sound and their unique place in music history, all while telling our own personal story.”
The Everly Brothers sold more than 35 million records from 1957 to 1962. They still hold the record for most Billboard-charting hits of any American duo (100 singles, 26 of which were in the top 40). In their day, they were second in popularity only to Elvis – and this engaging, exciting show is sure to delight old and new Everly fans alike.
“People like this era of music, and we’re looking forward to presenting this show for the first time at our theater,” said Gerald Ledney, the Arcadia’s executive director.
The Everly Brothers Experience has been presented to enthusiastic crowds all over the world in clubs, theaters, performing arts centers, casinos, ballrooms, and coliseums. Slovenian Savings & Loan is delighted to help support its presentation at the historic Arcadia Theater.
