Sharing my love for the first decade of rock and roll!

The Coasters

The Coasters were an R&B vocal group that originated in the 1950’s.  While not considered a standard doo-wop group, their style influenced many of the doo-wop outfits that came along in the decade.  The band’s classic line-up consisted of Bobby Nunn, Leon Hughes, Cornell Gunter, and Will “Dub” Jones.

Teamed with the famous songwriting team of the day, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, the Coaster exploded onto the scene with a plethora of hits, including, Searchin,’ Young Blood, Yakety Yak, Charlie Brown, Along Came Jones, and Poison Ivy.  Their tunes were often humorous and tongue in cheek.
