The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle: Songs & Stories, Together On Stage info • Jul 14 2014 star this tip starred
Reviews & Ratings
One of R&B’s most popular and talented music groups, The Whispers, will perform at the Grove of Anaheim.
With a four-decade career including seven gold albums and two platinum albums, as well as 12 top twenty singles, The Whispers were also inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2003, and received the 2005 Regional Grammys Governors Award for all of their accomplishments. The Whispers have proven their staying power, and continue to gain more popularity as the latest generation has grown up listening and loving their music.
One of R&B music’s most beloved and consistently popular vocal groups, The Whispers began their legendary and timeless career in 1963, producing a string of hits over the last four decades such as “And the Beat Goes On,” “Rock Steady,” “A Song For Donny,” and “Lady.” They emerged as the leading romantic singers of their generation, racking up one gold album after another and charting numerous R&B hits. They are arguably the most celebrated R&B balladeers of their generation and still make women swoon with their silky yet forceful tenors of twins Walter and Scotty. In the new millennium the group still performs around the world to thousands of loyal fans.
Their music has been heard on movie sound tracks such as “Waiting to Exhale,” “Madea’s Family Reunion,” and “Diary of a Mad Black Woman.” They sang the title track on Jay Leno’s movie soundtrack “Collision Course”. The group has not made any personnel changes and still consists of Walter Scott, Wallace Scott, Nicholas Caldwell, and Leaveil Degree. They are one of only a few “old school” groups that can boast of having over 40 years in the industry with a worldwide fan base, maintaining their vocal dominance and original members.
