Stand By Me - A Musical Story of Ben E King and The Drifters

A Celebration of Ben E King and The Drifters

Stand By Me is the phenomenal musical history of one of the biggest selling bands of all time.

The icons, challenges, controversy and conflicts, told through anecdotes of former members on screen, sit alongside the vast succession of more than 50 hits over the last six decades, including Under The Boardwalk, Saturday Night At The Movies, Up On The Roof, On Broadway and many more.

The Drifters burst onto the American music scene in the 1950s and, over time, the group (initially led by Ben E King, who would later go solo) would be responsible for some of the most memorable songs of the 20th century. The group would have several incarnations due to tragic passings of original members and the addition of a new generation of performers, whilst also enjoying ups and downs in regards to chart positions and international tours, and there are still representatives of the Drifters performing today.
