The Platters and Coasters coming to Corbin

CORBIN — Special to The Times-Tribune

The Fine Arts Association of Southeastern Kentucky, Inc. presents The Platters and Coasters: Memories of the 1950s and 1960s, Saturday, Sept. 7, 7:30 p.m. at the Corbin High School Auditorium.

The Fine Arts Association of Southeastern Kentucky 52nd Annual Concert Series kicks off with a trip down memory lane featuring early rock n’ roll legends The Platters and The Coasters.

For the past few years, the Sahara Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has been the home of “America’s Musical Gift to the World,” The Platters, Cornell Gunter’s Coasters, and Beary Hobbs Drifters.

For years, audiences have screamed, shouted and sang along every night to hits like “Only You,” “Under the Boardwalk,” “Charlie Brown,” “My Girl,” “Shout” and many others.

The tradition continues as Larry Marshak’s tribute to The Platters promises to give new relevance to some of the greatest American vocal standards of the early years of Rock & Roll. Marshak’s tribute tours the U.S. singing songs from more than 10 Platters top 10 records like “The Great Pretender,” “My Prayer,” “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” and “Only You.” Prepare for an evening of Rock & Roll encompassing everything from the smooth and compelling to the raucous and wild.

Individual tickets for the show can be purchased for $30 at the door. Students can purchase tickets for $10. For  season membership information, call:
