ABOUT THE BANDS
Elsbeary Hobbs, whose bass voice is the first sound heard on “There Goes My Baby,” the Drifters first major hit for Atlantic Records, created many of the comedy and dance routines the group became known for. After his untimely death in 1996, his widow reunited many of her husband’s former group members to commemorate him.
The Platters were created during the dawn of the Rock & Roll era in the early 1950’s, and although they have had many changes in personnel, still is one of the most sought-after groups in the country. They have had 21 Top Ten records, 9 million selling singles, 5 platinum albums and 5 number 1 songs. The Platters are one of the top 25 selling artists of all time, according to Billboard Magazine.
The Marvelettes occupy an esteemed place in the history of American popular music. With their first record, "Please, Mr. Postman" hitting the top spot on the charts and selling 3 million records in a crossover market, the group contributed to a new group-pop soul sound that totally dominated the music charts until the advent of the Beatles four years later.
