Three Rock & Roll Hall of Fame acts – One Great Show!
It’s not a concert…it’s a party! Spend a nostalgic evening saluting three of the world’s most beloved musical groups who were instrumental in creating the Rock & Roll/Doo Wop sound: Cornell Gunter’s Coasters (“Charlie Brown,” “Yakety Yak,” “Poison Ivy”); The Platters featuring four of America’s premier singers performing their greatest hits (“Only You,” “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,” “The Great Pretender”); and The Drifters, one of Rock & Roll’s founding vocal groups touring the U.S. again under the auspices of their original management team with their 50-year catalog of hits (“Under the Boardwalk,” “Up on the Roof,” “This Magic Moment,” and “On Broadway”).
Combined, these three Rock & Roll Hall of Fame groups have been associated with well over forty of the top classic songs in rock & roll history. From “Under the Boardwalk” to “Only You” to “Yakety Yak,” very few artists can boast of a richer musical resume. With such incredible musical diversity – from the comedy of Cornell Gunter’s Coasters to the romance of The Platters to the Motown magic of The Drifters – this show has songs to please every palate, delivered just the way you remember them, when you first heard them on the radio.
