Glenn Leonard, former lead tenor, “The Temptations,” Joe Coleman, former lead singer, “The Platters,” and Joe Blunt, former lead singer, “The Drifters,” are taking it back to the old school with a modern twist.
The guys aren’t just reciting the songs of old, they’re producing new music.
LCB, as they’re called, was recently summoned to record the classic “Stand Up for D.C.” for D.C.’s Statehood drive. Ayanna Gregory, Dick Gregory’s daughter, was in on the production as well.
The group is wasting no time, and plan to release a Christmas recording.
Coleman is confident fans are going to get more great music just like back in the day.
“When we hit the stage, we want to take you back to a time when love was young and you could understand all the words to the songs. The Platters changed the game…The Drifters continued the legacy of producing great songs… and The Temptations brought it on home!”
