The Drifters, Cornell Gunter's Coasters, and the Platters
Mahaffey Theater – Spend a nostalgic evening saluting three of the world's most beloved musical groups, instrumental in creating the Rock & Roll Doo Wop sound. THE DRIFTERS are a great reminder that love songs transcend all ages with hits from “Save the Last Dance For Me,” and “Up on the Roof,” plus the timeless “Stand By Me.” Rolling Stone magazine said the iconic classic American musicians were the top “500 Greatest Rock and Roll Performers.” No wonder they were the first group to be inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The beautiful “There Goes My Baby” enchants but it’s the classic “Under the Boardwalk” that is the most played R&B disc of all time. The Platters offer fans a chance to hear their debut single “Only You (And You Alone)” which launched this first African-American vocal group worldwide and their number one hit “The Great Pretender” as “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes” topped off by “My Prayer.” This year is the 35th anniversary of the formation of Cornell Gunter’s Coasters. The revival of hits from the 50s lives on with the iconic doo-wop sounds of the 1950's and 1960's. Classics like “Poisin Ivy,” “Yakety Yak,” "Love Potion Number Nine," "Searchin'," "Young Blood" and “Charlie Brown” are sure to please.
