With classic songs, today's Platters also perform multiple decades of hits with an exciting audience-pleasing show
The Platters® started with bass singer Herb Reed in 1953. Now more than 6 decades later The Platters continue to perform all across the world. The faces may have changed, but the legacy of the music lives on.
In the very beginning, the group consisted of Reed, Joe Jefferson, Cornell Gunther and Alex Hodge. Months later, David Lynch replaced Joe Jefferson, and Tony Williams replaced Cornell Gunther.
Now nearly 65 years later, and in keeping with founder Herb Reed’s wishes, The Platters continue to evolve and entertain music fans of all ages worldwide. In addition to continuing to tour the world, The Platters are involved in myriad projects and are planning to go into the studio soon to record much anticipated new music highlighting an evolved, contemporized sound founded on the music tradition that won The Platters their enduring international music acclaim.
