ExpandThe Spinners & The Contours
May 2, 2015, 8 p.m.
Timeless music is the hallmark of The Spinners. Their classic group sound and approach has maintained its universal appeal across generations. Throughout the years they acquired 12 gold records with hits on top of both pop and R&B charts (“Working My Way Back to You” and “Can’t Shake This Feeling”) and they are one of the few groups that can boast four lead singers. In 1962, The Contours hit the jackpot when Berry Gordy himself penned “Do You Love Me.” Within two weeks of release it became the No. 2 record in the nation as well as the group’s first gold record. More hits followed: “Shake Sherrie,” “Can You Jerk Like Me” and “First I Look at the Purse.” Sylvester Potts & The Contours are in their fifth decade in show business, and are not content to rest on past laurels; they stand ready to entertain fans old and new alike.
