The Drifters

Direct from the USA The Drifters feat. Original singer Rick Sheppard at Claremorris Town Hall Theatre, Friday 10th of February 2023.

Doors: 7.00pm | Show: 8.00pm | Full Bar

Rick Sheppard traces his history with The Drifters back to when the group recorded for Atlantic Records in the 1960s. During The Drifters celebrated years, spanning the 1950s and 1960s, there were two distinct periods. The first, dating from the early 1950s, highlighted the voice of the legendary Clyde McPhatter.

The Drifters recorded for Atlantic Records over three decades. During the 1950s and 1960s, The Drifters enjoyed the majority of their recorded success with hit after hit including “Under The Boardwalk”, “On Broadway”, “This Magic Moment”, “Up On The Roof”, and “Save The Last Dance For Me”. Rick Sheppard recorded with The Drifters for Atlantic Records during the 1960s and 1970s. In the group at that time were Charlie Thomas, the late Johnny Moore and the late Bill Fredericks

There are only two living members who recorded with The Drifters on Atlantic Records. Rick Sheppard is one of those two legendary members. Anyone else who claims he recorded with The Drifters in the 1960s for Atlantic Records or any group performing as The Drifters claiming a direct link to Atlantic Records in the 1960s is simply not telling the truth.

Now, as then, The Drifters featuring Rick Sheppard continue to perform the classic Drifters repertoire with energy, style, and a high degree of professionalism. They are the embodiment of pop music (no, not doowop, but pop music) at its finest.

The Whileaways are Noelie McDonnell, Noriana Kennedy and Nicola Joyce, three accomplished singers who had each toured and recorded extensively with their separate projects before coming together as a band. With over a dozen albums to their collective credit, and having played gigs and festivals all over the world, they began to admire each other’s singing at sessions in their home-town of Galway. Since coming together they have toured all over the world, and been nominated for Best Group and Best Album in the RTÉ Folk Awards, and garnered high praise from the music press both at home and abroad. They have been described as “among the finest singer in the country” (Hot Press) and their music as “profound and insightful, tightly woven, experimental, fresh and energetic” (Irish Music Magazine) .

These three singers are cut from the same cloth and weave a tapestry of harmonies and beautifully crafted original songs. Their sound is true and their delivery is undeniably captivating.
