OTW: Spinners play Sept. 4

On the Waterfront (OTW) presents the classic sound and timeless music of The Spinners, at 9 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 4.

Throughout the years, The Spinners have acquired 12 gold records with their hits climbing to the top of both the Pop and R&B charts. They are one of the few groups that can boast four lead singers: John Edwards, Bobbie Smith, Henry Fambrough and Pervis Jackson, with Billy Henderson making up the quintet.

During the 1970s, The Spinners recorded numerous hits with classic tunes like “Mighty Love,” “Then Came You,” “Rubberband Man,” “I’ll Be Around,” “ One Of A Kind (Love Affair)” and “Could It Be.”

In 1980, The Spinners returned to the top in typically grand style with the release of the album Dancin’ and Lovin,’ which earned The Spinners their twelfth gold record. More hit singles were soon to follow with “Working My Way Back To You” and “The Cupid Medley.”

The Spinners, a classic group sound and approach that never loses its universal appeal, will be at the OTW festival Sunday, Sept. 4 at 9 p.m., on the WTVO Oasis stage. The Spinners’ performance is free with admission to the Festival.

Three-day Waterfront admission buttons are $12 in advance, available at various locations. Cost is $14 for a one-day admission wristband at the gate. Children 8 and younger are free.
