The drifters - every nite's a saturday night - Drifters Bar & Grill

Having started as a trio back in 2008, The Lonesome Drifters set about their journey with nothing but raw and authentic rockabilly on their minds. With the band consisting of Stefan Schmid (vocals, rhythm guitar), Silvio Bantle (lead guitar) and Joe Klein (double bass) momentum soon began to gather pace once this south German-based band began laying the foundations for their debut album on Rhythm Bomb Records. 
The end result was a four-year process of carefully selected tracks comprising of regional artists who never quite got the breakthrough they yearned for during the 1950s, only to remain confined to the annals of history as nothing but exotic curiosities until ‘From The Backwoods’ reared its head. Despite the band’s debut effort being a covers only affair, the preceding years spent learning and honing their craft paid dividends as The Lonesome Drifters deftly transformed the aforementioned chosen obscurities by breathing new life into these compositions and, in the process, almost claiming them as their own due to the sincerity and passion injected in to each and every song.

In the song, the narrator tells his lover she is free to mingle and socialize throughout the evening, but to make sure to save him the dance at the end of the night. [5] During an interview on Elvis Costello 's show Spectacle, Lou Reed , who worked with Pomus, said the song was written on the day of Pomus' wedding while the wheelchair-bound groom watched his bride dancing with their guests. Pomus had polio and at times used crutches to get around. [6] His wife, Willi Burke, however, was a Broadway actress and dancer. The song gives his perspective of telling his wife to have fun dancing, but reminds her who will be taking her home and "in whose arms you're gonna be." [7]
