As one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era, the original band, The Platters, had 40 charting singles between 1955 and '67, including four number one hits, and was one of the most influential bands in the era of doo-wop. Although they had a distinctive sound, the group went through several member changes, the most successful lineup including lead tenor Tony Williams, David Lynch, Paul Robi, Herb Reed, and Zola Taylor.
Also featured in this show, The Coasters wowed crowds with their rhythm and blues and rock and roll hits in the late 1950s, and their popularity was so often imitated by doo-wop artists that they became an important part of the doo-wop legacy through the 1960s.
The Drifters, originally formed to serve as a backing group for Clyde McPhatter in 1953, quickly made a name for themselves. The group was the least stable of the great vocal groups of the age, as they were low-paid musicians hired by George Treadwell, who owned the Drifters name, and his lineup changed often. Two different sets of Drifters have been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame (as The Original Drifters and Ben E. King and the Drifters), and despite the changes, the group managed to set trends and perfect chart-topping hits, making them an essential part of this tribute show.
This polished tribute show some of the best music recorded from the time for a performance that makes you feel good from your head to the tips of your toes! Doo Wop, Pop & Soul provides you with some of the greatest music ever to come out of the early rock 'n' roll era, creating a remarkable tribute show for all.
