The Spinners was formed by a group of friends that grew up together in Ferndale. The love for music developed in them at a very young age and as they grew up they decided to form a band. Billy Henderson, Pervis Jackson, Henry Fambrough, Jame Edwards and C. P. Spencer initially formed the R&B band under the name of "The Domingoes." The lineup changed over time as Spencer and Edwards left. In 1961, the band changed its name to "The Spinners." The name was inspired from the car hubcups and the way they spun on car wheel.
The Spinners’ very first track to make it to number twenty seven on the charts was That’s What Girls Are Made For from 1961. Another single named Love (I’m So Glad) I Found You released from Tri-Phi Records also managed to peak number ninety one. However rest of their collaboration with the record didn’t get much attention. The band found instant fame when they made their debut performance at the famous Apollo Theatre. Right after that their single I Will Always Love You made it to number thirty five at the charts. Later in sixties another of their single "Truly Yours" hit Billboard R&B chart as well.
The Spinners suffered from a chart draught for five consecutive years till finally in 70s their track It’s A Shame managed to hit number fourteen. Soon after that the band signed to Atlantic Records and released "2nd Time Around." In 1972, when Philippe Wynne joined the band, it really took off on its journey of success. Before that although the band was highly respected and looked forward too, it hadn’t received the much wanted commercial success. In this new era The Spinners managed to release five songs that made it to Top 100 lists. When they released their self titled album in 1972, finally the band started to be counted among the top R&B groups of the era.
The Spinners followed a hard but straight road to success. In the 80s band managed to release two hits Cupid and Working My Way Back To You. They also managed to make it to the top of Hot 100 Billboard list that year. Over the years the group has had several changes in the lineup; however the soul of their music is consistent. The band still tours excessively and their concerts are always sold out events. Currently the surviving original members of the band are Jessie Peck and Charlton Washington. Pervis Jackson toured with the band until he died of cancer in 2008.
