The Everly SistersThe Everley Sisters

Rachael & Christina Brown and Deborah Bates
The Everley Sisters is a 1940s vocal group made up of Rachael Brown, Christina Brown, and Deborah Bates. The trio was formed in 2014 when the three WWII reenactors decided to tap into their love of Big Band music, specifically the classic 1940s trio The Andrews Sisters, and form a group of their own. Today, The Everley Sisters perform at reenactment events across the country, using the original Sisters’ arrangements and tight 3-part harmonies to produce a sound that is truly 1940s-authentic. | Check out their Facebook Page here
