Multiplatinum, Rock and Roll, Vocal Group and Grammy Halls of Fame member, The Platters, was initially comprised of founder and naming member Herb Reed, Tony Williams, Zola Taylor, Paul Robi, and David Lynch.
The Platters, the most romantic of all the early rock and roll groups, won the world hearts. Hit after hit came tumbling forth in a seemingly effortless manner: "Only You," "The Great Pretender," "My Prayer,"
"Twilight Time," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," "Harbor Lights," all of them establishing The Platters as the classiest of all the early rock and roll groups.
The Platters vocal evolution continues to this day through the crisp, vocal stylings of members Wayne Miller, Adele Galinda Martin, Lance Bernard Bryant, and Kenny Williams, all under the musical direction of Michael Larson.
In addition to MD Larson on the keyboard, the bands' rhythm section consists of Norwood Pearson (lead guitar), Dave Clark (bass) and Sergio Bellotti (drums). The Platters' recently released LP, Back to Basics with The Platters® LIVE!, captures the blueprint of the sounds made famous by The Platters.
Today the group continues to open the hearts and minds of new generations of music lovers. The rich vocal and historical tradition that is The Platters is unmistakable, making their timeless melodies relevant to fans all over the world!
