Branson’s incredible Doo Wop & The Drifters deliver the kind of music that gets you singin’ along from the first note! Many contemporary music genres - rock, pop, rap, and hip hop - employ sounds that were born from doo-wop, which makes it the kind of music everyone can enjoy. With one of the 70s era Drifters, Derek Ventura, leading the way, you’ll get all the best of the classics, including songs made famous by the fabulous Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers, The Cadillacs,The Moonglows and, of course, the unforgettable sounds of The Drifters.
Unless they’ve been living under a rock where only new music plays, it’s hard to find someone who can’t sing along to Drifters’ greats like “Under the Boardwalk,” “This Magic Moment,” “Up On the Roof,” and “Save the Last Dance for Me.” And you won’t just hear phenomenal vocals during the Doo Wop & The Drifters show, these artists deliver the entire ‘feel’ of the era, including the snappy attire and coordinated dance moves that send us back to the happy days of the 50s and 60s. Another key feature of the show is the venue; it’s not in a big, glitzy theater with thousands of seats - instead, your experience is up-close-and-personal in the small, intimate Hot Hits Theatre, putting the performers so close that you just might feel like you’re part of the show!
You’ll find the Hot Hits Theatre, home to Doo Wop & The Drifters and other quality shows, like Motown Downtown Tribute and All Crazy ‘bout Patsy, in Historic Downtown Branson. Everyone who’s been here is familiar with the world-famous Strip (a.k.a. Highway 76,) but some folks might not know that Branson has a great downtown. There’s a lot of shopping and dining, annual events, and attractions like an escape room and a historical museum, but Hot Hits is Historic Downtown’s only live entertainment theater.
In addition to the music of The Drifters, Derek Ventura and company share your favorites from artists like Etta James, The Platters, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, and the incomparable Jerry Butler at the Doo Wop & The Drifters’ show.
For music fans who enjoy a fun, upbeat stroll along memory lane, a good time awaits you with Doo Wop & The Drifters, and we’ll make sure you have great seats for the show!
