Graham Elvis from 80s pop sensations THE ELVIS BROTHERS introduced Mike Cohen and Jeff Janulis in 1990. He'd been working on some studio recordings with Mike and drummer extraordinaire, Mark Fornek. Mike and Jeff hit it off very well vocally, their voices complementing each other in a nearly brotherly way. Mike and Jeff had a shared passion for the early rock and roll music of the Everly Brothers, Carl Perkins, Elvis and the like as well as an appreciation for the Beatles and others in a similar vein.

Perfecting their harmonies, they took to writing and performing in the early 90s. The duo often opened for the Elvis Bros at Chicago area clubs, and as G. Elvis was want to comment, 'They didn't suck'. The two Abbeys applied their Everly-inspired harmonies covering a good portion of the Everlys catalog, as well as overlaying their harmonies on other classic 60s music.

They put together a top notch band featuring guitarist Steve Dvorak, drummer Mark Fornek and a turn-style of bass players including but not limited to Chicago blues stalwart Mike McCurdy, Carl Lubicz and John Slywka. In 1995, they released "Please File Under: "Twang" " featuring tracks from the group as well as Little Submarine, a song penned by Mike's friends, the Webstirs and featuring Graham Elvis. Mike and Jeff continued on throughout the decade, making yearly appearances at International Pop Overthrow Chicago festivals and playing with pickup Abbeys along the way. They're currently reclaiming their Everlys roots, playing under the moniker of "The Everly Hillbillies".
