Coming soon the Legacy of 70s website featuring Butch Leake formally
of the Bell Recording Group The Drifters an the music of Greenway,
Cook, Mason and Macauley. Butch teams of with a new cast of singers
to bring you the music reminiscent of those years......
It's been 33 years or more since the original Bell Record Recording Group
the Drifters performed on the stages of Great Britain and the USA.
The Bell Group consisted of veteran an legendary singer the late Johnny
Moore, Bill Fredricks, Grant Kitchings and Butch Leake the only surviving
member left from that era, which in fact is the 3rd golden period in the
history of the group.
Currently now there are three or more groups of drifters performing
around the USA. One headed by Charlie Thomas, another by Rick Sheppard
and Bobby Hendricks all former members under the Treadwell music family.
Treadwell has just launched a new young group of Drifters in Europe in
association with (PMG) Prism Music Group London.
Butch is currently in the studio working on a CD (CORNER TALK REPORT)
