THE PLATTERS were one of the top vocal groups of the ‘50s scene, achieving success with a crooning, middle-of-the-road style that put a soulful coat of uptown polish on pop-oriented, harmony-rich material. Their distinctive sound was a bridge between the Tin Pan Alley tradition and the burgeoning new genre of Rock n Roll. As one of the first ‘black’ groups to be targeted towards a predominantly ‘white’ youth audience in the US, they toured the world as international ambassadors of musical goodwill. That vibe continues as their music lives on in such legendary titles as “Only You”, “The Great Pretender”, “The Magic Touch”, “My Prayer”, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”, “With This Ring”, “Earth Angel” and “Twilight Time”. Expect to hear these and many more that have become indelibly ingrained in the hearts of a planet.

In an era where ‘the single’ was the thing – THE LEGENDARY PLATTERS released an amazing total of 38 singles. They were a global sensation, selling fifty-three million records and appearing in 27 rock and roll-themed movies, including Rock Around the Clock and The Girl Can’t Help It. They were also among the first Doo-Wop groups to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame (1990). Get out for an evening of smooth, soulful fun, sure to soothe heart and mind.
