THE DRIFTERS
Through a historical journey, which included no less than 5 legendary lead singers, including Rock & Roll Hall of Famers the late Clyde McPhatter and the late Ben E. King the group's ongoing story has covered the entire spectrum of Rock & Roll. 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. 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. Their classic tune "Under The Boardwalk" is the most played R & B record of all time. 20 other million sellers followed. 

Their songs have been penned by such historic songwriters as Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller, Carole King as well as "Beautiful" the NYC Broadway Show featuring her music, Jerry Goffin and Phil Spector. They have played at the White House on 3 different occasions, give 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.

THE COASTERS
Show business has never seen a group quite like The Coasters. They occupy a special niche in the music field. Because of their style and approach, they are in a class of their own. No wonder The Coasters are labeled “The Clown Princes of Rock "N' Roll"

Nothing in the world is more difficult to achieve than a long-term career in the record business by being funny. But The Coasters have had a long unbroken string of hits all containing humorous materials. In this respect, The Coasters are certainly unique.

Their notable awards include Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall Of Fame, Rhythm & Blues Foundation, Doo Wop Hall Of Fame, Carolina Beach Music Hall Of Fame, Now Dig This Magazine Hall Of Fame (England), and Lifetime Achievement Award - Former Governor of Florida - (Lawton Chiles)
