Drifting to Cape Town

The legendary all-male quartet the Drifters is heading to the Cape.

The group, known for the hits “Under the Boardwalk”, “There Goes my First Love” and “More than a Number”, will be touring South Africa for the first time next year.

They will be performing live in Cape Town on one night only in the Grand Arena at GrandWest on 12 May.

Supporting them will be local stars Emo Adams and Nur ­Abrahams.

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.

A 1970s revival in Britain saw their biggest successes on the UK pop charts, peaking with the number two hit “Kissin’ in the Back Row of the Movies”.

They have had three golden eras: In the early 1950s, the 1960s and the early 1970s (the group’s so-called post-Atlantic period).

?The first Drifters, formed by Clyde McPhatter, were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame as “The Drifters”.

The second Drifters, featuring Ben E King, were separately inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame as “Ben E King and the ­Drifters”.

In its own induction, the Rock ’n Roll Hall of Fame selected four members from the first Drifters, two from the second Drifters and one from the post-Atlantic ­Drifters.

The current lead singer of the group, Ray Lewis, is known as one of the longest serving members of the group, having re-recorded all the original Drifters hits and making them his own.

His voice has become synonymous with the Drifters.

Emo Adams has been performing for more than 15 years in the entertainment industry, covering stage and television. He is best known for his collaborations with David Kramer and the late Taliep Petersen, specifically his roles in District 6: The Musical and Kat & the Kings.

Nur Abrahams has been performing since the age of six and has graced many stages of Cape Town with productions such as A Christmas Carol, Jive Funny Festival and Remembering the Lux.

Fans can look forward to being serenaded by the Drifters in an intimate configuration in the arena for an unforgettable one night ­only.

V Tickets cost between R200 and R395 each. Book now at Computicket.
