One of Rock & Roll’s founding vocal groups is once again touring the U.S. under the auspices of their original management team. From their inception in the early 1950s and up until recently, the Drifters has a symbiotic relationship with Rock & Roll legend George Treadwell, who discovered and managed such famous artists as Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughn and Nina Simone. The Treadwell Family was there when the original Drifters formed and was responsible for guiding their career through 20 years of uninterrupted hits that has made them the second most successful recording artists of all time, according to Billboard magazine. They were the first musical group to include string instruments into R&B with “There Goes My Baby.” They were the first musical group to sell 2 million records with their pop classic, “Up On The Roof.” They were among the first African-American vocal groups to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame along with fellow inductees the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Bob Dylan and the Supremes.
