Event Details:
“Up on the Roof.” “Under the Boardwalk.” “This Magic Moment.” “There Goes My Baby.” “Dance with Me.” “Spanish Harlem.” “Stand by Me.” The list of hits goes on and on. Since their inception in the 1950s, The Drifters, one of rock ‘n’ roll’s founding vocal groups, has had decades of hits that made them the second most successful recording artists of all time, according to Billboard magazine. Through their historical journey, which has included five legendary lead singers, the group has covered the entire spectrum of rock ‘n’ roll. They were the first musical group to include stringed instruments in R&B music with their hauntingly beautiful song, “There Goes My Baby.” They were the first to sell 2 million records with their pop classic, “Up on the Roof.” Along with fellow inductees The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Supremes, The Drifters were in the first class of legends to be initiated into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the first African-American group to be inducted. Their classic tune, “Under the Boardwalk,” is the most played R&B record of all time. Their songs have been penned by such historic songwriters as Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, Carol King, and Phil Spector. They have played at the White House three times, gave a benefit concert in Berlin the day the wall fell, performed for the Pope, the Queen of England and Nelson Mandella, and toured the world for the USO in three different war zones from Korea to Iraq. It’s been a while since The Drifters toured the country, but they are back to celebrate their 50-year catalog and support their new recording, The Drifters Salute the Great American Songbook Live.
