Yakety Yak (don't talk back), Charlie Brown, Poison Ivy, Along Came Jones - these were just some of the big hits of The Coasters in the late fifties. You can relive these and more fifties memories when Billy Richards' Coasters entertain live in the Valley Ballroom at the Carson Valley Inn on Friday evening, August 24.
Billy Richards is a multi-talented entertainer, having sung, recorded and toured his entire adult life. He got his start in high school as a prominent member of the glee club and church choir. At the early age of 17, he sang with his uncle’s famed rock and roll group, the Robins. In 1962, he joined forces with the original bass singer of the Coasters, Bobby Nunn. They performed side by side in a Coasters group for over 24 years until Bobby Nunn's untimely death in 1986.
Billy Richards' Coasters have made numerous TV appearances over a wide span of time; from the early years on "Dick Clark's American Bandstand" to the present day's "America's Funniest People." The group has also been featured on several national TV commercials.
