When these guys hit the stage WATCH OUT they mean business, and generate some MASSIVE harmonies.
During the Coasters’ heyday, they had a string of rhythm & blues hits that was generously seasoned with humor and sung in an infectious,
up-tempo doo-wop style. Because of this, they sold more than 130 million records and secured their place in the Rock N ‘Roll Hall of Fame.
They ranked one of the most popular musical groups in America, having carved out a legacy for themselves as purveyors of riotously funny and socially incisive songs. These days the trio has been reconstituted and is comprised of
Charlie Duncan, Lionel “Z” Pope and Tony Scruggs
Their concert typically starts with some humorous Coasters classics, such as Searchin’, Love Potion Number Nine, Smokey Joe’s Cafe, Young Blood, Poison Ivy and the beloved Charlie Brown.
For the “Charlie Brown” number, the line
“Why is everybody always pickin’ on me?” is joined in by several out loud.
While the trio sings, they clown around with the audience and each other; they also perform some fancy footwork.
Performing songs from such diverse artists as Little Anthony & The Imperials, Lou Rawls and Brook Benton not to mention an eclectic tribute to Luther Vandross, and other originated tunes on their play list.
