Are the longest running band in pop history still performing live and enjoying over 50 hits world-wide. For half a century the group have undergone many line-up changes and the singers you see before you now are directly descended from those early days. No other vocal group has had as much success artistically and commercially as The Drifters and they are now one of the biggest selling artistes of all time. Until very recently, the most consistent member, the late, great Johnny Moore (who first joined The Drifters in 1954) took the stage with three of the current members, Peter Lamarr, Patrick Alan and Rohan Delano Turney. When Johnny died in 1998, The Drifters decided to continue in his honour, bringing in Victor Bynoe to complete the line up.
