Everly Brothers Experience
The Everly Brothers Experience featuring the Zmed Brothers will be at OCC Coffeehouse, Original Congregational Church, in the center of Wrentham, at 2 p.m. Since 2016, brothers Zachary and Dylan Zmed, along with their partner and drummer Burleigh Drummond, have celebrated the pivotal music and history of The Everly Brothers legacy with enthusiastic crowds all across the US and over seas in prestigious venues.
The aim is not to impersonate but to do the best in honoring the aesthetics of their iconic sound and in honoring the important role they played in pioneering the rock n’ roll movement, all while having a little fun sharing our own personal story, the performers say. Tickets for the concert are $35, available at the church office, 508-384-3110, or at www.musicatocc.org. A special deal for groups gives 2 free tickets for every 10 tickets purchased. The event will be in the church sanctuary. For more information, visit the website or contact Ken Graves, 508-384-8084, email@example.com.

In addition to sampling classes, drop-in swim evaluations will take place in the pool to help parents determine the most appropriate swim level for their child, helping ensure a safer summer by the water.
