Greatest Hits of the Drifters featuring Ray Lewis

The Legendary Former Lead Singer of THE DRIFTERS

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Saturday 2 nd February 2019

In the mid-late 1970's, a talented young singer named Ray Lewis joined one of the world's biggest bands, The Drifters. The existing lead singer, Johnny Moore, was leaving the band, and the group's management, the Treadwell family, decided that Ray was the ideal person to replace him. Ray enjoys world-wide fame thanks to his own unique voice and professional and charismatic aura. He has performed to sell out theatres and audiences in venues around the world, having been associated with great names like Carole King, Whitney Houston, Lionel Ritchie, Paul McCartney and Diana Ross. Without doubt, he is one of the world’s greatest entertainers and enjoys a large following.

Ray was born in Los Angeles, and grew up singing in church. One of his first jobs as lead singer was to re-record all of the original Drifters' hits, so the public would recognise him as the voice of The Drifters. He performed alongside the late Bill Fredericks and Johnny Moore as well as Ben E King and went on to become one of the longest serving members of the band, finally leaving in the late 1980's to pursue a solo career.

Since then he has performed around the world as an artist in his own right. Ray settled in the UK 20 years ago, and is still in high demand, touring throughout the year and performing Drifters' hits.
