Byrd Dawg - The Ultimate Tribute
to The Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel

Friday August 18,2017 | Doors: 6pm | Show: 7pm
Friday August 18,2017 | Doors: 845pm | Show: 915pm

“All I Have To Do Is Dream”| “Wake Up Little Susie” | “Bye Bye Love” | “Cathy’s Clown” | “Bird Dog” | “Till I Kissed You” | “Let It Be Me” | “Walk Right Back” | “Crying In The Rain".

BYRD DAWG is the ultimate tribute to two iconic musical duos - The Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel - – starring Joel Dietrich and Wayne Rempel, and their seasoned four-piece group, The Vintage Electric Band.

Joel and Wayne both grew up listening to those amazing harmonies and lyrics painting vivid pictures. Playing together in bands for several years they discovered their mutual love for singing and harmonizing. They read about Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles, The Beach Boys and many other artists saying Phil and Don Everly influenced them. The more Joel and Wayne played together, the greater their excitement and interest grew in developing a tribute to the influential Everly Brothers.

Two documentaries have been made about Bunnett’s work. “Spirits of Havana “(2000) National Film Board (NFB) was presented at numerous film festivals internationally, television (CBC, PBS) as well as in Europe.
