The Spinners, Michigan’s sensational R&B and smooth soul artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Saban Theater!
The group was formed in Detroit in 1954 by Pervis Jackson, Billy Henderson, C. P. Spencer, James Edwards, Bobby Smith, and Henry Fambrough. They were friends who grew up together in the same suburb and they first called themselves the Domingoes. They renamed themselves to The Spinners in 1961 and released their debut single (That's What Girls Are Made For) later that year. Their musical style can be best described as a blend of R&B and smooth soul (a subgenre of soul music - developed in the early 1970s from soul, funk and pop - characterized by melodic hooks, funk influence, smooth production style, and - unlike pop soul which predominantly featured dance oriented music at the time – a more ballad oriented sound with generally romantic and seductive lyrical themes). The group’s been through many line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Henry Fambrough, Charlton Washington, Jessie Robert Peck, Marvin Taylor, and Ronnie Moss. They’ve had a stellar career with 18 studio albums, 3 live albums, 13 compilation albums, 58 singles, and in 2015, they were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
