Friends of Herb Reed gathered at the Regent Theatre in Arlington over the weekend to celebrate the life of the founding member of the Platters, who died this month at 83 and had called Arlington home. Speakers at the ceremony included the Rev. Dr. Regina Shearer, who used to perform with Reed, and Jon Bauman, also known as Bowzer from Sha Na Na. The Platters were best known for such 1950s hits as “Twilight Time” and “The Great Pretender.”
