The Legendary Elsbeary Hobbs performed on the greatest Drifter hits of all time. Besides singing on many of the Drifters greatest hits, Hobbs was noted as the deep bass voice for the Drifters throughout the years. Hobbs was a member of “The Drifters” from 1958-1996, with the exception of the time he spent in the military service and his work as a medical assistant. From his return to the Drifters in 1969 through his untimely death in 1996, Hobbs was the leader of the Drifters during their greatest years as a touring group. They performed for three presidents, the US Constitution's 200th Anniversary Good Will Tour Of Russia, on all three national network TV stations, and throughout the world. Hobbs was best known for having put together many of the greatest Drifters live routines.

Today, Hobbs' wife, Odessa Hobbs, has united many of late husband's former band members as the Elsbeary Hobbs Drifters to commemorate much of the great material to which he contributed so artistically.

The Drifters are truly unique in today's world of coming and going popular music groups. And following their 25-year-long history is like reading a history of contemporary popular music. From their very first release on Atlantic Records, “There Goes My Baby” (which was also the first rhythm and blues record to incorporate violins), they were bound for stardom - - with a 2 million seller under their belts in their first try. Over the next ten years there were 29 additional chart records (according to Billboard) accounting for nearly 200,000,000 sales of singles and over 80 million albums in the United States alone. In fact (source: The Book of Lists), only the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Bees Gees and Michael Jackson have sold more records over a more sustained period of time.

They have appeared in every major night club and concert hall in the United States from Las Vegas to 10 sold out appearances at New York's Madison Square Garden. They have literally toured the entire world including a recent one month tour to the Far East and highlighted by being chosen to represent the United States for the great Bicentennial tour of Russia in 1977. They have even appeared at the White House for President Bush and at the home of the widow of the late Robert Kennedy in a concert for Ted Kennedy and friends. Their television appearances have numbered nearly 100 over the years, highlighted by being the only group to make two appearances on “Roots of Rock and Roll”, the Twentieth Century Fox syndicated series.

One important reason for The Drifters success was their intimate relationship with the greatest songwriters of their time and the great Drifters hits were written by such song writing legends as Burt Bacharach, Carole King, Doc Pomus, and Lieber & Stoller. Elsbeary Hobbs Drifters blends a tasteful mixture of their million sellers with contemporary standards, many in medley form and several lifted from their hot Columbia album, “Too Hot”, all presented within the context of the Drifters famous patented choreography.
