Through an historical journey, which included no less than 5 legendary lead singers, including Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Clyde McPhatter and Ben E. King, The Drifters’ ongoing story has covered the entire spectrum of rock & roll. They were the first musical group to include string instruments into Rhythm & Blues music with their hauntingly beautiful song, “There Goes My Baby”. They were the first musical group to sell 2 million records with their pop classic, “Up On The Roof”. They were the first African American vocal group to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Along with fellow inductees the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Bob Dylan and the Supremes, the Drifters were in the first class of rock & roll legends to be initiated into the Hall of Fame. Their classic tune “Under The Boardwalk” is the most played R & B record of all time. 20 other million sellers followed.
It’s been a while since the group toured the country but they are gearing up for a monumental celebration of their 50 year catalogue which includes great titles such as: “On Broadway”, “There Goes My Baby”, “Dance With Me”, “This Magic Moment”, “Stand By Me”, and many more.
