The Drifters kick off the series Jan. 27-28, 2020. The Drifters have had five legendary lead singers, including Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Clyde McPhatter and Ben E. King. The group was the first musical group to sell 2 million records with their pop classic, “Up on the Roof.”
The Drifters were the first African American vocal group to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
The classic Drifters tune, “Under the Boardwalk,” is the most played R&B record of all time.
