ALL-TIME PLATTERS ROSTER
.
Since the early 1950s, hundreds upon hundreds of men and women have been associated, in some way, in a performing capacity with The Platters. As The Platters lineage continues to expand, tracking the all-time roster of The Platters proves to be a difficult, but a very interesting, task.

It should be noted that as original and other 'legitimate' members (those who replaced earlier members) of The Platters left the core group, many would start their own "Platters" group. As that group added and replaced members, those members suddenly have a tie to The Platters.

This sub-section of The Platters Information Site will attempt to trace the family tree of The Platters, throughout the various incarnations of the group. We hope to have complete details not only including names, but also the particular Platters "group" or "groups" they were with, as well as years of participation.

This listing will eventually include 100s of names, so we ask you to please bear with us as this site becomes complete. In the mean-time, if you see any corrections that need to be made, or additions that you might have, *please* e-mail us to let us know!
