Most often thought of as a Motown act, the classic group sound of legendary R&B recording artists The Spinners has never lost its universal appeal. Throughout the years, they have sold millions of records and topped both the pop and R&B charts with smash hits like “Rubberband Man,” “I’ll Be Around,” and “Then Came You.” Today, original member Henry Fambrough is joined onstage by Jessie Peck, Marvin Taylor, Ronnie Moss, and CJ Jefferson; a soul-infused 4-piece band led by Keith Ferguson backs them up.
After a brief time at Motown Records, The Spinners signed with Atlantic Records and teamed up with producer Thom Bell in 1972, setting an amazing recording career into motion. The Spinners charted five top ten singles from their first Atlantic album Spinners in 1972 and became one of the most prominent soul groups of the 1970s. A partial list of their hit singles on Atlantic include “Mighty Love,” “Then Came You,” “I’ll Be Around,” “One Of A Kind (Love Affair),” “Games People Play,” and “Could It Be.” In 1979, The Spinners completed their first collaboration with producer Michael Zager, and by early 1980, the single “Working My Way Back to You” was topping Pop and R&B charts giving the group its 12th gold record. Other past releases include songs on the motion picture soundtracks of Twins and Spaceballs and a single on Arista Records with Dionne Warwick entitled “Then Came You.”
The Spinners have received six Grammy nominations and have performed twice during the awards ceremony. Inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999, they have also been awarded the Rhythm and Blues Foundation Award for their contribution to the genre. In addition, the group has performed for presidents, received a star on the Hollywood “Walk of Fame,” and has appeared in numerous network and cable television specials paying tribute to the music of the 70s and ’70s. Today, this legendary R & B group maintains a full touring schedule, performing for fans of all ages in sold-out houses worldwide.
