Tonight at 7pm at the Maysville Community & Technical College lawn, there will be a free concert with Bernie Anderson and the Drifters!
Formed in 1953, The Drifters are a trend setting Rhythm & Blues group with numerous chart-topping hits to their credit. First entering Billboard's Top 40 in June 1959 with "There Goes My Baby", The Drifters went all the way to the number two position. The hits were non-stop as the Drifters rose in popularity on Billboard's Top 40 on the Atlantic record label.

In September of 1960, The Drifters hit again with, "Save the Last Dance for Me", a number one recording that spent fourteen weeks on Billboard's Top 40. "Up on the Roof", made 1962 a memorable year followed in 1963 by the ever-popular "On Broadway". In July of 1964 The Drifters entered the Top 40 again with the unforgettable "Under the Boardwalk", a number four hit single that spent twelve weeks on the charts.

Combining their million selling hits with current chart favorites, The Drifters leave audiences everywhere filled with nostalgia and hungry for more.
