The Coasters bring the golden era of rock ‘n roll to the stage! Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, the Coasters legacy includes a string of classic singles that reflect the life of the American teenager with keen wit and hot, rocking harmonies. Parlaying their R&B roots into rock and roll hits by delivering their tunes in an uptempo doo-wop style, their songs often made incisive points about American culture. Placing 14 songs on the R&B and pop charts in the 1950s and 60s, this group is best-known for their timeless humor as purveyors of riotously funny rock and rock records with a solid R&B underpinning. This performance is guaranteed to be a good time, featuring hits such as “Charlie Brown,” “Poison Ivy,” “Love Potion No. 9,” and “Yakety Yak,” all perfectly harmonized and choreographed. The Coasters are sure to have you on your feet—don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes!
