It should come as no surprise that The Spinners have always made timeless music. Throughout the years they have acquired twelve (12) gold records with hits on top of both pop and R&B charts. Today, original members Bobbie Smith and Henry Fambrough are joined onstage by lead singer Charlton Washington, high tenor Harold “Spike” Bonhart and a soul infused 5-piece band. The Spinners have six Grammy® nominations and have performed twice during the awards ceremony. They received a Black Gold Award from Dick Clark for their many achievements in the recording industry, and they have been awarded the Rhythm and Blues Foundation Award for their contribution to R&B. 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.
