FRIDAY, JUNE 11TH
SPARTANBURG MEMORIAL AUDITORIUM
Spend a nostalgic evening saluting three of the world’s most beloved musical groups responsible for the Rock & Roll and Doo-Wop music you love so much. They’ll be performing your favorite hits, including The Great Pretender, Up on the Roof, Yakety Yak, and so much more! The best part? You could enjoy these three legendary bands for free! Stay tuned to our station to learn how you can enter for your chance to win free tickets.
THE DRIFTERS are a great reminder that love songs transcend all ages with hits from “Save the Last Dance For Me,” and “Up on the Roof,” plus the timeless “Stand By Me.” Named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s Top 500 Greatest Musicians, it’s no wonder that iconic classic American musicians were the first group to be inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their beautiful “There Goes My Baby” enchants, but it’s the classic “Under the Boardwalk” that is the most played R&B disc of all time.
THE PLATTERS offer fans a chance to hear their debut single “Only You (And You Alone)” which launched the first African-American vocal group worldwide and their number-one hit “The Great Pretender” as well as “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” topped off by “My Prayer.”
CORNELL GUNTER’S COASTERS. The revival of hits from the ’50s lives on with the iconic doo-wop sounds of the 1950s and 1960s. Classics like “Poisin Ivy,” “Yakety Yak,” “Love Potion Number Nine,” “Searchin’,” “Young Blood,” and “Charlie Brown” are sure to please.
