Get ready for the Golden Oldies and the hilarious musicality of the Cornell Gunter Coasters. Cornell Gunter was one of the founding members of the Coasters. When he left the group to form his own group –the Cornell Gunter Coasters – he took with him their comic essence, which is still captured today in their riotous on-stage antics. Today they are as much of a comedy act as they are a singing group.
The Coasters are an American Rhythm & Blues and rock ‘ n’ roll vocal group that had a string of hits in the late 1950s. Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doowop, their records were so frequently imitated that they became an important part of the doo wop legacy through the 1960s. The Coasters' hits also comprised a major portion of the song score for the 1994 musical revue Smokey Joe’ s Café, a retrospective of Leiber & Stoller songs that received one Grammy Award and seven Tony Award nominations following its 1995 Broadway debut. From “Yakkety Yak” to “Charlie Brown” to “Poison Ivy”, these monumental songs helped induct The Coasters into
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
