for any drifters fans, little dude has been a fan for a while and we seen they were playing at our local theatre, so got him tickets for christmas,

so i thought id email them and ask for a shout out for him,

they mailed back asking if they could MEET him, so before tonights show we went backstage,


what amazing men they are, talking chatting and laughing,

then througought the show they waved to babyS, winked, thumbs up, and even saluted him,

hes gone to bed listening to there new cd, to add to his already big collection,

tonight has just been unreal! and to see my boy sooooooooo happy, is priceless,
:-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

I think its wonderful, the Drifters have been performing for about 50yrs all beit it isnt the same line up which has changed over the years, it must be a buzz for them to know a lad as young as baby S is a fan and familair with all their songs as it is to know your mum is but to honest who doesnt sing a long to a Drifters song even me and my mum were singing saturday at the movies today :-D


LollyWithSprinklez Report 17 Feb 2013 02:13

I was going to ask about photos but I see Joy has got some downloaded!!
Don't forget to bring them to the meet :-D

Sounds like you will all be buzzing for some time :-D


StrayKitten Report 17 Feb 2013 07:34

Lol I sure will bring them lol
Yes Hayley a few friends laughed and asked what they sang,
But recognised there sings when I said and wana tag along next year,

Was such an unreal night I still can't quiet believe it

I think the line up has changed for the better ;-)
