      About The Drifters
      The history of rhythm and blues is filled with vocal groups whose names – the Orioles, the Cadillacs, the Crows, the Flamingos, the Moonglows, the Coasters, the Penguins – are held in reverence by fanatics and devotees. The Drifters are part of an even more exclusive fraternity, as a group that managed to carve out a place for themselves in the R&B firmament and also define that music, not only at its inception as a national chart phenomenon in the early ‘50s, but also in the decade that followed. Their place in history is as complex as their role in it, by virtue of the fact that there are two distinct phases to their music and the continuity of their membership, and their extraordinary longevity – only the Platters could claim as great a span of years as an active recording unit.

      About Cornell Gunter’s Coasters
      The Coasters were one of the few artists in rock history to successfully straddle the line between music and comedy. Their undeniably funny lyrics and on-stage antics might have suggested a simple troupe of clowns, but Coasters records were no mere novelties – their material, supplied by the legendary team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, was too witty, their arrangements too well-crafted, and the group itself too musically proficient. That engaging and infectious combination made them one of the most popular early R&B/rock and roll acts, as well as one of the most consistently entertaining doo wop/vocal groups of all time.

      About The Platters
      With classics such as “The Great Pretender,” “Only You,” and their rendition of “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” The Platters were one of the preeminent doo wop groups of the rock and roll era. Under the guidance of manager and producer Buck Ram, The Platters churned out hit after hit during the 1950s, bridging the gap between more traditional vocal-group stylings and the popular R&B grooves of the early ‘50s. Their sound was unique, marked by lead singer Tony Williams’ powerful vocals and the feminine touch of singer Zola Taylor.
