††††The opportunity to journey back to the 1960s will be afforded those in attendance at “Richard Nader’s Doo Wop Tour” at Mountaineer Race Track and Gaming Resort Oct. 7. The tour features the Charlie Thomas Drifters; Shirley Alston Reeves, original lead of the Shirelles; and the Buck Ram Platters in Tribute to the Platters.
††††Thomas, along with other Drifter members Doc Green, Ben E. King and Elsberry Hobbs, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. The group first hit the charts with “There Goes My Baby” in 1959 and scored numerous hits during the 1960s including “Out on the Boardwalk” and “Save the Last Dance for Me.”
††††Reeves was the co-founder and lead singer of The Shirelles. The first single release, “I Met Him On a Sunday,” written by the Shirelles, was an instant success. “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” was penned by super singer/songwriter Carol King and featured in the hit movie “Dirty Dancing” with Reeves on lead vocal. “Tonight’s the Night,” “Baby It’s You” and “Soldier Boy” are among those to hit the charts for the popular group.
††††The Platters started out in Los Angeles, and the group’s mentor, manager, producer, songwriter and vocal coach Buck Ram is credited for much of its success. Considered the most romantic of all the doo wop groups, The Platters sold more than 80 million copies of songs that included “Only You,” “The Great Pretender” and “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes.”
††††The concert will be in The Grande Ballroom and begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $15 to $25 and are available through all Ticketmaster locations or on site at Mountaineer at the Roarin’ 20s Player Club.
