Following the phenomenal success of their 65th anniversary tour, The Drifters will be back on the road with a line up hand-picked by Tina Treadwell herself, who is president of the Treadwell Entertainment Group and owner of The Drifters name.

Tina’s father started the group with Clyde McPhatter and brought in several greats thereafter such as Johnny Moore and Ben E King.
