A LEGENDARY band calls into Weymouth this weekend.

THE Drifters, back on the road thanks to Tina Treadwell, pictured, play Weymouth Pavilion on Saturday, August 3 at 7.30pm.

They will be performing a brand-new show with all their classic hits from the last six decades.

Following their 65th Anniversary year, The Drifters are back on the road with a line up hand-picked by Tina Treadwell herself - President of the Treadwell Entertainment Group and owner of The Drifters name.

Tina’s father started the group with Clyde McPhatter and brought in several greats thereafter such as Johnny Moore and Ben E King. Her mother Faye was later responsible for bringing the group to the UK and overseeing hits such as More Than a Number and Kissin’ in the Back Row.

After the passing of her parents, it was down to Tina to continue the legacy of The Drifters name.
