Legendary vocal group The Drifters is coming to the Paramount Theater! The Drifters, one of Rock& Roll’s founding vocal groups is once again touring the U.S From their inception in the early 1950s, the Drifters embarked on a historical journey that included no less than five legendary lead singers, including Rock & Rolls Hall of Famers Clyde McPhater and Ben E. King. With veteran manager George Treadwell originally at the helm, the Drifters scored hit after hit: “Under the Boardwalk”, “There Goes My Baby,””Stand by Me,”..the list goes on. Along with fellow inductees the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and the Supremes, the Drifters were in the first class of Rock & Roll legends to be initiated into the Hall of Fame. The group has played at the White House on various occasions; gave a benefit concert in Berlin the day the wall fell; performed for the Pope, the Queen of England, and Nelson Mandela; and toured the world for the USP in three different war zones, from Korea to Iraq.
