You know the songs, "On Broadway", "Under the Boardwalk", "Save the Last Dance for Me", "Up On the Roof", "This Magic Moment", "There Goes My Baby", and many more. The songs are etched into the memories of music fans worldwide and helped form part of the foundation of contemporary popular music. What these songs have in common is that they are all the product of a veritable hit-making machine better known to their million of fans as The Drifters.

Rick Sheppard is an integral part of that hit making machine. He has been there for more than 45 years. Rick joined The Drifters in 1966 and recorded with the group on Atlantic Records through the early 1970s. During that time, he toured with The Drifters throughout the world and shared stages with some of the greatest names in music and show business. You can look it up in books and anthologies chronicling The Drifters history. Rick Sheppard is prominently featured.

The Drifters featuring Rick Sheppard are entering their fourth decade thrilling audiences in the United States, Canada, and worldwide. Their show is high energy and visually entertaining, mixing the classic Drifters repertoire that fans have come to know and love along with hits from the 1970s and 1980s done up in the unique Drifters style. In 1996, they released two albums on Capitol/EMI Music: a re-recording of The Drifters "Greatest Hits" and "A Christmas Album", the first ever album of classic Christmas songs recorded by The Drifters in their long and illustrious career. In 2010, a song from that Christmas album ("The Bells Of St. Mary's") was featured in the motion picture "Lymelife." The "Greatest Hits" album includes "There Goes My Baby," a two-million seller that was the first big R&B record to feature violins, as well as a number of the groups twenty additional chart hits recorded over the ensuing decade. In all, The Drifters have sold more than 100 million records.

In 2011, Rick Sheppard was honored by his hometown of Queens, New York as a Queens, New York Legend celebrating four decades of entertaining the world at a ceremony attended by family, friends, and local dignitaries. During the ceremony, Rick received proclamations of appreciation from local, New York City, and New York state officials. Rick Sheppard has been doing what he loves: singing, dancing, entertaining. And, he's been doing it for most of his life. Forty five years is a long time. Here's to years and years to come!
