The Whispers Tickets
Hailing from sunny Los Angeles, California, The Whispers are a band that has been entertaining audiences since the heydays of the 1960s. With a bluesy, R&B-inspired funk, dozens of records to their name and a fan base that follows them wherever they go, The Whispers are one show you don't want to miss.
The Whispers have a broad tour schedule that takes them all over the U.S., although they frequent states like Texas, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, New York and Nevada. They can often be found at venues such as The Majestic Theatre in Dallas, the North Charleston Performing Arts Center in North Charleston, the B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in New York and the Eastside Cannery in Las Vegas. They tour often and it's a safe bet that fans can find The Whispers tickets all over the country.
Formed in 1964 in Watts, California, the band originally included beloved singer-songwriter Gordy Harmon. Unfortunately, Harmon suffered an injury to his larynx during a car accident in the early 1970s and was forced to leave the band because of it. That wasn't all the misfortune the band would suffer, though, and in 1992 beloved band member Marcus Hutson left the group to fight a battle with prostate cancer. When he later died of the disease, the group vowed to never fill his spot. They have been performing as a quartet ever since.
The Whispers have enjoyed a long career full of chart-topping hits and, in 2003, they were rewarded with an induction into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. Throughout the years, the band has featured many members, although the core four members, Nicholas Caldwell, Wallace "Scotty" Scott, Walter Scott and Leaveil Degree, have been together since the early 70s. The members were born in California, Texas and Louisiana, respectively, and came together originally as a band called "The Eden Trio," which was spearheaded by Nicholas Caldwell. After competing in several Bay-Area Battle of the Bands competition, the group began to gain notoriety and was soon recording their first studio album. They continue to have a strong fan base and tour often.
Although The Whispers landed many hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B charts, including their much-loved, chart-topping "Seems Like I Got to Do Wrong," their big break came when they hit #1 on Hot Dance Club Play's chart with "And the Beat Goes On" in 1980. The track catapulted them to fame, and they soon signed a deal with LA record label Soul Clock to record their first album. Since then, they have recorded upwards of 20 albums, as well as three Christmas albums and one live album.
Although The Whispers are a productive band with a plethora of albums to their name, their self-titled album "The Whispers," as well as their 1981 album "Love is Where You Find It," have been best-loved among their fans, both claiming the top position on the U.S. R&B Charts. Close seconds are the 1987 "Just Gets Better With Time" and 1980's "Imagination," which both scored third position on the charts, as well as "Love for Love" in 1983, which rose to second position.
There's a reason The Whispers are so loved among their fans - their shows are unlike any other. The band employs matching outfits, often colourful, silk vest and pants sets, as well as synchronised dance moves, plenty of crowd-pointing, knee swishing and an ample light display, all while backed by a huge band. For many, heading to The Whispers live feels a lot like stepping back in time to a day when synchronised dancing was envied, huge moustaches were in and pant suits were still cool. The Whispers haven't changed much in the last five decades of their careers and, as it turns out, they don't need to. Viewers love their shows just the way they are and every live show they perform garners rave reviews from the audience.
