The Platters Tickets

Thinking about rock and roll’s history, ‘The Platters’ name is one that immediately comes to mind. You can see this legendary band perform live by getting The Platters tickets. What’s special about this group is how it became a transition between Tin Pan Alley’s pre-rock era and the budding genre of rock and roll. The band’s history goes back to 1952 when it took the name, ‘Flamingos’. At that time, it was being managed by Ralph Bass with Herb Reed, Alex Hodge, David Lynch, Cornell Gunter, Joe Jefferson and Gaynel Hodge as the original members. Reed changed the name and now the band was called ‘The Platters’. A disc jockey who thought records look like ‘platters’ was the inspiration behind Reed’s idea. By 1953, the young group was seen by Buck Ram who had previously worked with famous bands like Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Count Basie and Cab Calloway.

About The Platters

Not only did Buck have experience, he had earned a professional degree in music from the Southwestern University. He turned to band management after that and brought fresh talent to the music industry in Los Angeles with musicians like Linda Hayes, The Colts, The Penguins, Young Jessie and The Flairs. Although The Platters was an amateurish band and wasn’t doing great, Buck thought that they didn’t lack talent. In 1953, he took over as the group’s manager with Alex being replaced by Paul Robi and Zola Taylor being added as the lead vocalist. The Platters were now official with Williams, Reeds, Lynch, Zola and Paul as the members. Under Buck’s assistance, Federal Records signed a deal with the band and about five releases later, about 20,000 sales had been made. With the addition of Linda Hayes, the band gained a little popularity and even without any hits, it caught the attention of a famous band like The Penguins. The latter band was impressed by The Platters’ talent and asked Buck to sign it up too. Buck struck a deal with Mercury Records of managing The Penguins if Mercury took The Platters too.

After the signup, Buck got an old Platters’ song, ‘Only You’, re-recorded. This song had previously been turned down by Federal Records, whose manager simply refused to record the single saying it was too bad to be released. In 1955, ‘Only You’ hit the charts and became the first Top Ten hit for the band. This song not only made it to the charts, it also stayed there for seven weeks. However, The Platter’s greatest hit was yet to follow. ‘The Great Pretender’ had an interesting story as it was written by Buck in the Flamingo Hotel’s washroom. This track became the group’s first national hit. It stayed at number one position for eleven weeks straight. A list of hits was soon to follow such as ‘Twilight Time’, ‘Smoke Gets in Your Eyes’, ‘Enchanted’ and ‘Remember When’.

1959 started a tough period for the group with the arrest of four members in Cincinnati, Ohio on account of prostitution and drug charges. This arrest not only caused conflicts within the group but also caused serious damage to their reputation. In the US, disc jockeys started removing their records and this caused them to disappear from the charts, making them greatly rely on European charts. This led the group to fall apart and the 70’s start saw about four different Platter’s groups emerging. One had Herb Reed, Liz Davis, Nate Nelson, Duke Daniels and Ron Austin. Another group called itself ‘The Original Platters’ and had David Lynch, Zola Taylor and Paul Robi. Tony Williams also went on to form his own version of Platters and included his wife, Helen, Ted E. Fame, Ricky Williams, Bobby Rivers and himself in the group. The last Platters group was formed by Buck who called it ‘Buck Ram Platters’ including Monroe Powell, Chico LaMar, Ella Woods, Gene Williams and Craig Alexander in it.

After David Lynch’s death in 1981 and Paul Robi’s in 1989, The Platters were indicted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This helped end the cold war between the members and they set a high standard for other bands to follow. Since then, the band has had 400 recordings, performed in more than 91 countries, sold over 200 million records and won over 230 awards across the world. So, if you’re in for some quality rock and roll music, grab cheap The Platters tickets as soon as possible.
