You are sure to be in for a good show, as the Drifters drift into Cape Town this May.

The legendary all-male quartet, known for the hits “Under the Boardwalk”, “There Goes my First Love” and “More than a Number”, will be touring South Africa with supporting acts Emo Adams and Nur ­Abrahams backed up by Camilo and the band.

The Drifters are a long-lasting American doo-wop and R&B/soul vocal group that has set musical trends and given the public 13 chart hits, most of which are legendary recordings today. Matching that feat, subsequent formations of the Drifters recorded 13 Billboard Hot 100 top 30 chart hits.

People’s Post is the official media partner to the event.

In an exclusive interview with People’s Post in September, lead singer Ray Lewis said he was “coming home to the motherland”.

“I love the Cape Town audience. I could put them all on a massive plane, bus or a train and take them all home to live with me,” said Lewis.

Along with some of the classics, the singers will also bring new material, and something for all ages, Lewis promises.

“Our vocals are on point and our dancing steps are always first class and what stands out is the camaraderie in the group; it is very infectious. There isn’t one individual trying to stand out. We are a group. There is a lot of love on that stage. We pass it on and I believe the audience can feel it too,” said Lewis.

“Also it is important to understand that our faith is our basis and this is a blessed opportunity, this was afforded to us as a gift from the Lord and we will deliver what the audience needs. A moment of happiness or a moment of thought. We believe in boogying and we will boogy on that stage, but those moments of inspiration is through divine intervention.”V The Drifters will be performing at GrandWest’s Grand Arena on Saturday 12 May. Tickets start at R200 and are available through Computicket.
