The Coasters Revised Bio
THE COASTERS®


THE LEGENDARY COASTERS HAVE THE DISTINCTION OF BECOMING THE FIRST VOCAL GROUP TO BE
INDUCTED INTO THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME.

SINCE THAT TIME MANY OTHER MUSICAL GROUPS HAVE TAKEN THEIR PLACES ALONGSIDE THE COASTERS IN THIS SPECIAL HONORED POSITION IN THE MUSIC WORLD.

IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT THE RENOWNED SONG WRITING TEAM OF LEIBER AND STOLLER FOUND
A  RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ENSEMBLE THAT WAS NEAR MAGIC. THE HITS JUST KEPT COMING AND BECAME A MAJOR PORTION OF THE MUSICAL SCORE THAT WAS  RETROSPECTIVE OF LEIBER AND STOLLER. IT RECEIVED A GRAMMY AND SEVEN TONY NOMINATIONS. THE SHOW WAS “SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE”.

THE COASTERS RECENTLY TOURED SOME FORTY PERFORMING ARTS VENUES IN THE HIGHLY ACCLAIMED REVIVAL OF “SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE” WINNING FULL AUDIENCE STANDING OVATION EACH NIGHT BEFORE SINGING THEIR FIRST NOTE.

THEIR SONGS ARE UNIQUE BECAUSE THEY ARE INFUSED WITH HUMOR AND A SPECIAL WINK THAT ALWAYS LETS THEIR AUDIENCES IN ON THE FUN.

THEIR FIRST HIT WAS “DOWN IN MEXICO”WHICH FOLLOWED BY “YOUNG BLOOD” AND SEARCHIN”. BOTH SELLING A MILLION COPIES EACH.

THE COASTERS ROAD HAS BEEN PAVED WITH GOLD WITH MORE BLOCK BUSTER HITS SUCH AS “YAKETY YAK”,”CHARLIE BROWN”,”ALONG CAME JONES”, “POISON IVY”, “LITTLE EGYPT”, “LOVE PORTION #9” “ZING WENT THE STRINGS OF MY HEART”, “BABY THAT'S ROCK 'N' ROLL. JUST TO NAME A FEW.
