Up on the Roof. Under the Boardwalk. This Magic Moment. There Goes My Baby. Dance with Me. Spanish Harlem. Stand by Me. The list of hits goes on and on.
THE DRIFTERS…one of Rock & Roll’s founding vocal groups is once again touring the U.S. under the auspices of their original management team. They were the first musical group to include string instruments into Rhythm & Blues music with their hauntingly beautiful song, “There Goes My Baby”. They were the first musical group to sell 2 million records with their pop classic, “Up On The Roof”. They were the first African American vocal group to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Their classic tune “Under The Boardwalk” is the most played R & B record of all time.
They have played at the White House on 3 different occasions, gave a benefit concert in Berlin the day the wall fell, performed for the Pope, the Queen of England, Nelson Mandella and toured the world for the USO in 3 different war zones from Korea to Iraq. And, behind it all was George Treadwell and his family, guiding the career of this historic group.
The Treadwell family comes out of retirement to put together an historic reunion at US facilities as THE DRIFTERS return to their roots with their latest American tour, a monumental celebration of their 50 year catalogue in support of their album, “The Drifters Salute the Great American Songbook Live.”
