Description

Presented by Reiser and Reiser, CPAs

In 1955, Herb Reed, David Lynch, Paul Robi, Zola Taylor and Tony Williams crashed through the racial divide in the music industry paving the way for The Platters to become the first African-American vocal group to reach international superstardom!

The Platters debut single, Only You (and You Alone), launched the vocal group on the world stage.  The romantic ballad, based on the then groundbreaking Tin Pan Alley sound, became an instant hit with the public and would eventually reach number five on the Pop charts, pioneering the “new sound” of Rock & Roll as we know it today.

In keeping with the founder’s wishes, The Platters continue to evolve and entertain music fans of all ages worldwide. With a solid foundation of multiple hit songs under their belts, thanks to the founding members, The Platters today, Wayne Miller, Adele Galinda “DD” Grey Martin, Lance Bernard Bryant and Kenny Williams—all seasoned, veteran performers of film, stage and music from Broadway to Hollywood—continue to captivate audiences under the baton of Musical Director Michael Larson.
