Welcome to the information site for one of the world's greatest vocal groups ... The Platters! Since the 1950s, The Platters have undergone a myriad of changes, changes in which have, at times, made this group difficult to keep track of, understand personnel changes, and find accurate and truthful information on. This site is intended to tell the story of The Platters... a story of classic hits, world fame, and success. This site will also present the other side to the story: group division, legal battles, and ugly lawsuits. Most importantly, using personal testaments from many involved with the group such as management, and the members themselves, The Platters Information Site hopes to tell these stories in an honest and truthful manner!

As we're in contact with virtually all former and current members of the various Platters groups, we hope to soon exclusively present their stories, photos, and personal merchandise on this site soon!

Visit the links to the left for more information, and be sure to contact us if you have any particular questions, etc. Also be sure to join the Platters E-Mail Discussion List!

Enjoy your stay, and we hope you will 
forever enjoy the music of The Platters!
