Soulful, Upbeat Linwood
You can’t help but dance to the soulful, sensitive music of Linwood Peel of Clyde McPhatter’s The Drifters. Memoried of Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Otis Redding, Teddy Pendegrass, Barry White and Bobby Bluebland echo in the stylish phrasing of this incredible performer.
In the mid 1990’s, Peel was the lead singer for The Elsbeary Hobbs Drifters, and his sound is magically like those wonderful songs that have made the group famous. His shows are listed in American Entertainment Magazine’s, “Great Shows Under $15K.”
Born the son of a North Carolina sharecropper, his early voice was shaped in church his father pastored. His deep gospel roots gave birth to a strikingly unique and powerful entertainer.
With extraordinary physical energy, Linwood moves, gets down, and gets funky with ease and sophistication. With wide vocal range and musical versatility, Linwood Peel breathes new life into old music, transporting observers to tears and to their feet in applause.
About the Drifters
The Drifters are truly unique in today’s world of coming and going popular music groups. From their very first release on Atlantic records, “There goes My Baby”, they were bound for stardom with a 2 million seller under their belts in their first try. Over the next 10 years there were 29 additional chart records (source: Billboard) accounting for nearly 20 million sales of singles and over 8 million albums in the US alone. In fact (source: The Book of Lists), only the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Bee Gees have sold more records over a more sustained period of time.
The Drifters have appeared in every major night club and concert hall in the United States from Las Vegas to 10 sold out appearances at New York’s Madison Square Garden. They have literally toured the entire world including a one month tour to the Far East and were chosen to represent the United States for the great Bicentennial Tour of Russia.
Although not scheduled to perform, when asked by a producer to step in, with less than 10 minutes to go, to perform the National Anthem in front of an indoor stadium full of people at the New England Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, producer asked, “Can you be ready?” and Peel replied, “No problem, I was born to sing!”
