The Coasters band members from left: Ronnie Bright, Carl Gardner Jr., J.W. Lance and Alvin Morse perform during the ‘Rock, Pop and Doo-Wop’ concert at the Baton Rouge River Center Saturday afternoon (June 28, 2008).
 
The Coasters, featuring Carl Gardner Jr., son of founding member Carl Gardner, hit the stage in cherry-red suits. The senior Gardner retired from performing in 2005 and now acts as the group’s official coach. The Coasters’ current lineup includes tenor vocalist and New Orleans native J.W. Lance, who left the stage to hug his mother in the audience.

The high-spirited Coasters stayed true to the group’s classic mix of great vocal ensemble and comedy. After singing several hits (there are too many of them to fit in the allotted time), the guys dragged bass singer Ronnie Bright, who pretended to be fall off the stage drunk at the end of “Charlie Brown.”

Good news, friends!
Carl Gardner's autobiography, Yakety Yak, I Fought Back- My Life With The Coasters, has (just) been released and is available for purchase.  In the works for several years, this paperback book covers the life and career of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee from his boyhood days in Texas to his R&B origins with the Robins to a 50-year career with one of the most successful and beloved vocal groups of all time, the Coasters, the Clown Princes of Rock & Roll.  The book is available for purchase at http://www.authorhouse.com/ for $18.70 a copy.  Please show your support of Carl and Veta Gardner's efforts to chronicle the history of one of our true pioneers.
I've sent this e-mail to close to 150 vocal group harmony fans, but I know there's many I'm not in contact with.  Please feel free to forward this information to others in your realm and to the hosts of the R&B radio shows in your area.
Thanks,
Todd Baptista

Thank you Todd for all the work you do for the harmony groups - and thanks for a terrific review of the book in Goldmine magazine!

ONE-HOUR RADIO SHOW

Carl and Veta Gardner
did a one-hour interview show
with deejay Ronnie Allen on November 29, 2007. The entire show was dedicated to Carl's life with the Coasters and to "Yakety Yak I Fought Back," the definitive book about the Coasters' history: a collaborative effort by Carl (who told the story) and Veta who put it down on paper. You can hear the entire show -- plus a couple of bonus tracks! -- by going to
http://www.jerseygirlssing.com
clicking on "Ronnie's Radio Page" and scroll to Coasters (Carl & Veta Gardner).
