The Platters are one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era. With an astounding 40 charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including four number one hits, they are true legends. Revel in classics like “The Great Pretender”, “Twilight Time”, “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes”, “My Prayer”, and “Only You”.
The legacy of Clyde McPhatter's Drifters lives on through founder’s son, Ronn David McPhatter. Together, they bring to life all of The Drifters’ biggest hits including "Under the Boardwalk", "This Magic Moment", "Up on the Roof", "Save The Last Dance for Me", and many more cherished tunes loved by generations.
Join us for a night filled with the infectious rhythm and blues of The Coasters, an iconic American vocal group that carved their name in rock and roll history. While originating outside of mainstream doo-wop, their influence was so profound that they became an integral part of the doo-wop legacy through the 1960s. Known as the “Clown Princes of Rock N Roll”, their songs blend humor with a solid rhythm and blues foundation. Expect to groove to their hits like “Yakety Yak”, “Charlie Brown”, “Searchin'”, and “Young Blood”.
