The Platters
More than forty years after the Coasters stormed the pop and R 'n' B charts with their first million seller, "Searchin'," the Coaster's show is a nostalgic treat for the senses and has proven to be as exciting today as they were in the fifties. The greatest honor of all was the choice of the Coasters as the first group inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. Come listen to these great Coaster songs:
  • Poison Ivy
  • Baby That Is Rock & Roll
  • Charlie Brown
  • Along Came Jones
  • Yakety Yak
  • Zing Went The Strings of My Heart
  • Little Egypt
  • Searching
  • Smokey Joe's Cafe
  • Love Potion #9
  • Down In Mexico

  • Cornell Gunter's Coasters Surely, there is no more aptly named group in show business today than the Drifters. The group that was formed 40 years ago to be a vehicle for top talent to drift in and out of, has become the showcase for over 100 performers. In fact, over 50 singers recorded with the Drifter's 18 hit records and 15 top album reign including no less than 7 different lead singers.

    For their long careers as trendsetters in the music industry, the Drifters were honored with the ultimate music business accolade in 1 988; induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-prophetically in the same year as such other rock and roll icons as the Beatles, the Supremes, Bob Dylan and the Beach Boys. Beary Hobb's Drifters It is as a performing group that the Drifters are best known. They have performed before 4 presidents including a recent appearance at President Clinton's second inaugural ball. They have been on television over 100 times starting with the Ed Sullivan show in the 50's, with numerous appearances on the Tonight Show going back to Jack Parr right on up through Johnny Carson and Jay Leno. Recently, they have been on USA This Morning, the Today Show and Good Morning America showing off their polished choreography, special effects and smooth patter, but most of all the patented Drifters' sound. Over the years, they have been chosen to represent the United States for the great bicentennial tour of Russia, have appeared at the home of the late Robert Kennedy in a charity performance, performed for the Queen of England, and at the Great Wall of China. Additionally, they have performed on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange in honor of its 75th anniversary, at Jackie Mason's wedding, for Chief Justice Berger at the American Bicentennial celebration at Constitution Hall as well as being the only artists to perform at the Statue of Liberty.
