Spend a nostalgic evening with three of the world's most beloved musical groups, instrumental in creating the Rock & Roll Doo-Wop sound. Multiplatinum, Rock and Roll, Vocal Group and GRAMMY® Hall of Fame members, THE PLATTERS® are considered the most romantic of all the early rock and roll groups with classic hits such as, "Only You", "The Great Pretender", "My Prayer," "Twilight Time," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," and "Harbor Lights.“  THE DRIFTERS, first group to be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and named by Rolling Stone as one of the “Top 500 Greatest Rock and Roll Performers,” are a great reminder that love songs transcend all ages with hits like “Save the Last Dance For Me,” “Up on the Roof,” “Under the Boardwalk” and the timeless “Stand By Me.” 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 “Poison Ivy,” “Yakety Yak,” "Love Potion Number Nine," "Searchin'," "Young Blood" and “Charlie Brown” are sure to please.
