School pupils from Craneswater Junior School took to the stage on Sunday Night to perform with soul legends ‘The Drifters' after being selected to sing with the American stars.
The twenty strong army of young doo-woppers joined The Drifters on stage twice to belt out such classics as "Stand By Me" and "Saturday Night at the Movies". The excited students received a large round of applause as they ran onto the Kings stage and performed in front of over a thousand audience members, and they didn't disappoint. Pupils learnt The Drifters signature moves and had practised with the group before the big night, as part of the group's inspiration through music scheme.
It was a great to see the young people on stage with a different style of music to that of current times, Drifters member Michael Williams said "It's always great to get the kids involved; we've been doing it for five years now." He goes on to say "We want to inspire the young people in the communities we perform in, and we think this is a great way to do so, the students from Cransewater have been absolutely brilliant!" .
I couldn't agree more, an excellent night of feel good music, elegant dancing and overall fun.
The Drifters continue their "Masquerade Tour" across the UK this year, more info available at www.theofficialdrifters.com
