Bunbury’s rock n’ roll fanatics will see The Robertson Brothers and Scot Robin collaborate on stage for the first time as they perform all the classic hits of The Everly Brothers and Buddy Holly on October 1.

Performer Ben Robertson said the performance was more than just a tribute show.

“We have video screens with footage and pictures – it’s not just coming to see a tribute band, it’s like a documentary on The Everly Brothers’ life and how it went from the beginning to the end,” Robertson said.

Roberston said he and his brother had performed as the legendary act for three years and were looking to help people reminisce in Bunbury.

“It’s a trip down memory lane for the punters who come along,” he said.

“We get to everybody in the audience after the show and all around Australia we hear the same thing; ‘you took me back to when I was 17’.

“A lot of work goes into the show and it’s all pretty slick, so it’s great to see the result of our hard work and seeing the audiences loving it which is what we set out to do.”

Robertson said he and his brother had always planned to do a tribute to the legendary act, as it was their parents’ favourite band. For this tour, they have teamed up with Scot Robin, who was the first Australian actor to land the lead role of West End smash hit musical Buddy.

“Scot is fantastic, it has been great fun so far,” he said.
