Bobby Hendricks Drifters comes to Carson Valley

By From page B7 | January 18, 2013

Enjoy a return to the simpler times — before computers and cell phones and Facebook — when Bobby Hendricks Drifters brings back the magical harmonies of the Doo Wop days in the Carson Valley Inn Valley Ballroom on Friday, Jan. 25.

Bobby Hendricks was the lead tenor for the Drifters in the late 1950s as the group sang the trend-setting songs of that era.

While their biggest and most iconic hit was “Under the Boardwalk,” they also had many other immediately recognizable hits such as “This Magic Moment,” “Stand By Me,” “There Goes My Baby,” “On Broadway,” “Up On The Roof” and many more.

Hendricks toured with the biggest stars of 1957 including, Paul Anka, The Diamonds, Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers, Fats Domino, The Big Bopper and more.

He was inducted into the Doo Wop Hall of Fame of America at Symphony Hall in Boston on April 13, 2001.

Today, Hendricks Drifters still offer a blend of tasteful music and class, wrapped up in their famous patented choreography.

Tickets for the Jan. 25 Bobby Hendricks Drifters concert at the Carson Valley Inn are $22 and are available at the hotel desk or by phone at 775-783-6606.

Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. for 21 or over.

The Carson Valley Inn (carsonvalleyinn.com) is located on U.S. Highway 395 in Minden, Nev. near the start of State Highway 88.
