They will play for one night only at Buxton Opera House on October 26, a date which has been rescheduled from May 23 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Drifters’ long list of hits include Saturday Night at the Movies, Come on Over to My Place, Stand By Me, Under the Boardwalk and many, many more!

Members of the group have been hand-picked by Tina Treadwell, president of the Treadwell Entertainment Group and owner of The Drifters name.

Tina’s father, George, started the group with Clyde McPhatter in 1953 and brought in several greats thereafter such as Johnny Moore and Ben E King. Her mother Faye was later responsible for bringing the group to the UK and overseeing hits such as More Than a Number and Kissin’ in the Back Row.
