A mighty high note – Spinners ‘Rock the Dock'

The Spinners perform at Chesapeake Beach Resort and Spa
Chesapeake Beach, MD - The mid-July heat and a hot group from the ‘70s and ‘80s brought a big crowd to a pretty cool place Saturday evening, July 15. The Detroit-based soul group The Spinners put on a very well-received show under the Bayfront band shell at Chesapeake Beach Resort and Spa. The show was part of the venue’s 2017 Rock the Dock series.

The quintet includes one original member from the Hall of Fame group that scored with such hits as Could It Be I’m Falling in Love,” “One of a Kind,” “Then Came You” (performed originally with Dionne Warwick), “They Just Can’t Help It,” “The Rubber Band Man,” "Working My Way Back to You"/"Forgive Me, Girl," and "Cupid"/"I've Loved You for a Long Time." Henry Fambrough said prior to the show that there is a reason why the group’s classic hits sound as good today as when they were originally released. “It’s great music,” said Fambrough. “You can listen to any Spinners’ music and hear songs about love and happiness.” Noting that those attending the group’s shows have plenty of concerns and drama in their everyday lives, Frambrough declared, “when we go on stage they [audience] leave what they have at home.”

In addition to Frambrough, the current Spinners are Charlton Washington, Jessie Peck, Marvin Taylor and Ronnie Moss. The group performs about 60 to 70 shows a year nationwide. In addition to performing all the group’s big hits, some of which were included in a slick medley, highlights of the Spinners high energy performance included Moss’ hitting three extremely high notes to conclude the quintet’s rendition of Willie Nelson’s “Funny How Time Slips Away.”
