Cornell Gunter’s Coasters

Newberry Opera House presents Cornell Gunter’s Coasters September 8. Grammy® winning band and Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee The Coasters are renowned for their unique blend of American rhythm & blues and rock n’ roll sounds. With the group’s music immortalized in the Broadway musical Smokey Joe’s Cafe, The Coasters will go down in history for helping steer beach music and rhythm & blues throughout much of the 1960s and 1970s with songs such as Poison Ivy, Charlie Brown, Yakkety Yak, Searching’, and Young Blood.
