The Everly Pregnant Brothers were formed after a drunken dare by Pete Mckee and Richard Bailey. The success of the dare prompted the pair to draught in a bunch of disparate chaps who had three things in common, the love of beer, ukuleles and having a laugh. A national treasure in their native Sheffield the Brothers playful tampering of classic songs has won them friends and fans far and wide.
Six Sheffielders with ukeleles and a big bloke with a lethal line in lyrics. The Brothers feature a couple of familiar faces in artist Pete McKee and comedian and Radio Sheffield presenter Toby Foster. Frontman Shaun Doane sets the tone and drives proceedings forward with a huge vocal performance and some wicked Sheffield versions of music classics. They cover songs by The Clash, The Undertones, Pulp, Arctic Monkeys and The Human League, among others, creating Ukulele entertainment for the masses. Other 'Stadium Uke' favourites include 'Chip Pan on Fire' (a cover of Kings of Leon 'Sex on Fire'), an ode to Henderson's Relish with The Coldplay song 'Yellow' (retitled 'Hendo's'). "'No Oven, No Pie' (Bob Marley's 'No Woman, No Cry') brings together two great loves of singer Shaun Doane's life, reggae music and pastry-based foodstuffs"
