“The best act of its genre on the music scene today…”, the Bill Pinkney legacy group still reflects the entire Legendary Drifters presence in the music industry and weaves a blend of nostalgic magic with on-stage excitement and a 21st century touch. This Drifters group engages under a registered United States Patent and Trademark Office Federal Service Mark and in compliance with all States’ Truth in Music Laws. With today’s informed music lovers rejecting generic imitations, the group remains in demand.

The Blue Tips (Opening Act)

The Blue Tips Rhythm Revue started off as a one shot deal. First assembling to play a set of motown and soul favorites at a mutual friend’s wedding, the band and the audience realized something special was going on before the night was over. Soon, united in their love of motown and soul grooves, the four original members added a tight horn section and were on their way to becoming the go-to party band in the region.

The Blue Tips are not your typical variety band, blending the expected oldies with today’s radio hits – instead these guys keep the dance floor packed by breathing new life into classic soul and motown favorites, music that every generation knows and loves. Their charm is due in large part to their relative youth when compared to the style of music they play, and their exuberant live performances reflect both their love of this music and their skill in playing it. The Blue Tips Rhythm Revue is a perfect fit for events ranging from weddings to concerts and beyond.

Deja Vu (Opening Act)

DEJA VU is a Classic Rock Band that covers 1960′ and 1970’s by bands like Steppenwolf, Rare Earth, The Monkeys, Rolling Stones, Dr. Hook, James Gang, etc.
