An evening filled with classic motown songs of the 50’s and 60’s. Original Drifters hits like “Under the Boardwalk”, “This Magic Moment”, “Up On The Roof”, “Save the Last Dance For Me”, and “On Broadway”. The Coasters are an American rhythm and blues/rock and roll vocal group that had a string of hits in the late 1950s. Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doo-wop, their records were so frequently imitated that they became an important part of the doo-wop legacy through the 1960s. They became known as the “Clown Princes of Rock N Roll” for their humorous rock and roll songs with a solid rhythm and blues underpinning. You’ll listen to their hits like “Yakety Yak”, “Charlie Brown”, “Searchin’” and “Young Blood”. Hear Platters hits like “Only You (And You Alone)”, “The Great Pretender”, “(You’ve Got) The Magic Touch”, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” and “With This Ring”.
