Flag bearers of the Sweet Philly soul-music scene of the 1970s, The Spinners and their silky-smooth voices continue to build on their legend with a full-time touring schedule that features original members Bobbie Smith and Henry Fambrough. Backed by a soulful instrumental ensemble, the quintet of singers relives the bygone era of earnest love songs and afros inflated with helium while performing coordinated dance moves and timeless hits from five certified-gold albums. Heartstrings longing to be pulled can savor the endlessly romantic “I’ll Be Around,” sung in a minor key by Smith and Fambrough, and audiences can feast their ears on a rendition of “Could It Be I’m Falling in Love,” lead by newer member Charlton Washington. Listeners might also hear the group’s bass-heavy reinterpretation of Sam Cooke’s “Cupid,” or its 1976 chart-topper, “The Rubberband Man,” an irresistibly danceable ballad that unites soul, funk, and disco.
Paramount Center for the Arts
Built by a subsidiary of Paramount Pictures in 1930, the Paramount Center played its original role of luxury movie theater for more than 40 years. After a community-funded campaign, an independent, nonprofit organization repurposed the theater so it could enrich the neighborhood with cultural and educational live performances. In recent years, the auditorium has enjoyed a historic restoration initiative that revived its original ceiling design, completed a painting above the stage and balcony, and refurbished its plush vintage seats to include eject buttons for quicker exits after shows.
