Both Colin and Geoff have been playing and singing in various bands since their early teens, and have been together for the past three years as a full-time professional duo known as “EASY-RIDER”, working on the country/line dance scene in the UK and in Europe.
The Everlys Experience is a totally separate venture, and since its launch on 1 November 2000 at the Midlands Tribute & Look-Alike Awards Ceremony, which attracted wide media coverage from TV, radio and press, they have acquired bookings not only as a superb self-contained duo, but also on occasion with a full band, at a variety of venues, from festivals and theme weekends, to cabaret and theatre, appearing with top international acts such as The Bellamy Brothers, Searchers, The Fortunes, Marty Wilde and early in 2002 with Albert Lee & Pete Wingfield (both members of the real Everly Brothers band).
Colin is a member of the Beehive Club, the official Everly Brothers Fan Club, and in an effort to go the correct way about doing a tribute, details of their show have been passed on via the fan club newsletter to Don & Phil, and other prominent musicians who play with them.
The sounds of the legendary Everly Brothers have been delighting listeners for over 40 years now, with their incredible sibling harmonies. 1983 saw the long-awaited reunion of the brothers after a bitter 10 year split : it was a truly momentous occasion and concert of a life-time for Don & Phil, and all their fans.
This 1983 Reunion Concert at The Royal Albert Hall, London, featuring the more mature Everly Brothers, and packed with all the Everlys’ greatest hits, is the show which Colin & Geoff now seek to recreate with The Everlys Experience.
Attention has been paid to every details- hairstyles, suits, replica guitars, double goose-neck mic stand, the brothers' mannerisms, not to mention that old Kentucky drawl!
