Linwood Peel's Tribute To The Drifters

The soulful, sensitive sounds of Linwood Peel as a musical entertainer are inspired by legends. Memories of Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Otis Reading, Teddy Pendergrass, and Barry White echo in the stylish phrasing of this incredible performer.
Born in North Carolina, his early voice was shaped in the church his father pastored. His deep gospel roots gave birth to a strikingly unique and powerful entertainer.
Linwood's vocals are an attempt to take his human soul and project it into space. It is the ultimate gesture of getting out of himself. He takes a part of the most private, personal, inward, and hurls it into space he projects it as far as he can. This style and gesture of opening his whole inner self results in an enormous spiritual release, and is felt by everyone with tremendous impact.
With extra ordinary physical energy, Linwood moves, gets down and gets funky with ease and sophistication. With wide vocal range and musical versatility, Linwood Peel breathes new life into old music of The Drifters such as There Goes My Baby, This Magic Moment, Save The Last Dance For Me, Up On The Roof, On Broadway, Under The Boardwalk, and Dance With Me transporting audience to tears and to their feet in applause.
With heartfelt generosity and compassion, Linwood frequently performs at facilities for the aged in nursing home, Veteran's hospitals and for elderly in custodial care.
About The Drifters:
The Drifters are truly unique in today's world of coming and going popular music groups. From their very first release on Atlantic records, “There Goes My Baby”, they were bound for stardom with a 2 million seller under their belts in first try. Over the next 10 years there were 29 additional chart records.(source: Billboard) accounting for nearly 20 million sales of singles and over 8 million albums in the US alone. In fact (source: The Book Lists), only the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Bee Gees have sold more records over a more sustained period of time..
The Drifters have appeared in every major night club and concert hall in the United States from Las Vegas to 10 sold out appearances at New York's Madison Square Garden. They have literally toured the entire world including a one month tour to the Far East and were chosen to represent the United States for the great Bicentennial Tour of Russia.

Today, Linwood has united his former group members as Linwood Peel's Tribute to The Drifters to commemorate much of the great materials to which are still known, sung and covered worldwide. Not only does the group perform many of The Drifters tunes that they were noted for, but an abridged potpourri of standard rock songs. Although This Tribute Show has nothing to do with The Drifters or with The Elsbeary Hobbs Drifters, our lead, Linwood Peel was the lead for The Drifters and the Elsbeary Hobbs Drifters since the 1991-1992 season. He was also a former member of The Clyde McPhatter's Drifters (featuring Ronn David McPhatter)
Their latest gigs this summer in Boston, DelaWare, Queens and including the Dance for Peace for the Ambassadors for Peace produced by LinRa Promotions were all had been a full house.
