Live at Royal Albert Hall [Revisited]: The Everly Brothers Reunion Concert

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 14 th July 2019

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

The “Architects of Harmony” harmonized again in an unforgettable concert. The Everly Brothers got back together for a reunion concert after a decade of not speaking to each other. Though surprising, there was no doubt that this reconciliation concert, held for sentimental reasons at the Albert Hall, would be a triumph. Two smooth, well-built figures in dinner jackets, with acoustic guitars, the Everlys (Don 46, Phil 44) performed a catalogue of their hits with such immaculate phrasing and delicate, glistening harmonies that it was as if the audience was hearing them for the first time. When asked for the most memorable moment of his career, Phil Everly replied, “the Albert Hall reunion.” Join Award-winning concert performers Lessack and Rodgers as they invite you to recapture and celebrate THAT magical evening of timeless music and unparalleled harmonies.

"The show was terrific! Audience LOVED it. The voices of Lee and Johnny were spot-on! It was a great night at the Gallo Center!"

Lynn Dickerson, Executive Director Gallo Center for the Arts

LEE LESSACK’s graceful Lyric baritone vocals and sophisticated, yet endearing persona have made him a shining star on the international concert scene. Billboard Magazine calls his singing “vocal romanticism of a high order”.

Touring extensively in the United States and Europe to sold-out performances and releasing eight albums, Lessack has proven himself both as a performer and recording artist. His newest album, in collaboration with Johnny Rodgers is a recreation of the Simon & Garfunkel Live in Central Park concert [September, 1981]. Another ambitious recording, In Good Company was released to great acclaim.

Intimate and impeccably produced, the album beams with outstanding performances. Lessack sings duets with music notables such as Michael Feinstein, Maureen McGovern, Amanda McBroom, Ann Hampton Callaway and Stephen Schwartz. The recording earned a MAC and Bistro Award for Best Recording of the Year.

Among his critically acclaimed albums is a live recording of Too Marvelous for Words: The Songs of Johnny Mercer, from the famed Cinegrill in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, which was chosen for the 2002 Grammy Award preliminary ballot as well as Chanteur, Lessack’s concert and recording of the Great French Songbook celebrating the music of Michel Legrand, Jacques Becaud and Charles Aznavour to name just a few. 

JOHNNY RODGERS is an internationally celebrated singer-songwriter, pianist, Broadway veteran, and recording artist who is described by Stephen Holden, from The New York Times, as an entertainer “who has show business in his bones” with “fused elements of Billy Joel, Peter Allen and Johnny Mercer.”

As an Ambassador of American Music, Johnny Rodgers dazzles audiences with his Americana mélange of original songs and classic favorites. He tours for the State Department to places such as the Middle East, North Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Islands. Johnny has toured Russia and performed with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, with Igor Butman and his Jazz Orchestra as well as for the US Embassy Independence Day Celebration and the Grodno Jazz Festival in Minsk, Belarus.

Rodgers doubled as Music Director and piano man for Liza Minnelli performances/tours and starred in and wrote the song “I Would Never Leave You” for Liza’s Tony Award®- winning Liza’s At The Palace, which was filmed and released by PBS television.
