THEY WERE once referred to as the most important vocal duo in rock and are known to have inspired bands such as the Beatles.

The Everly Brothers have carved their name into rock 'n' roll history and are now the crux of a tribute show held by two local musicians.

Darby Burger and Rob Rushton, have teamed up to bring the smooth sounds of the Everly Brothers back to life in the Walk Right Back Tribute Show.

Mr Burger said Mr Rushton had helped him learn guitar when they were young.

"Rob actually taught me my first chord on the guitar when we were about 13 years old, we used to play the Everly's songs in a band together back then,” Mr Burger said.

The show will be held in the Caboolture RSL on Thursday, August 17 from 6pm.

Caboolture RSL marketing manager Kent Parry said that Mr Burger has played at the club for the past 15-years and is a talented musician.

"Darby has played at our club for many years, he is a true professional,” Mr Parry said.

"Darby approached me about the Everly Show and I jumped at the opportunity, the concept is great and we're excited to see it unfold.”

Tickets are on sale for $27.50 at the Caboolture RSL and include a two-course meal, they're limited so get in early.
