Join us every Saturday at 6pm for the Summer Jazz Series, featuring new and exciting entertainers each Saturday. JUNE 29th is Angie Whitney. 

Angie, her twin sister and her cousin started singing back-up for The Spinners who charted 5- Top 100 singles and 2- Top 10 hits. They were one of the biggest Soul groups of the 1970’s. The Spinners classic songs such as: “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love”, “Ghetto Child”, “Working My Way Back To You”, “The Rubberband Man” and more are considered Pop classics.

Angie says, “We toured with them and learned so much. Cornelius Grant was our manger at the time. He was also the guitar player and musical director for The Temptations. He took us under his wing. He wanted to develop a girl group at the time. He was so controlling but I paid close attention to him because I wanted to be in show biz. We rehearsed so much but we all got antsy and it fell apart.”

Angie finally had time to work on her voice. She wanted desperately to sing on her own. Angie explains, “I’m an Alto and my lower register is developed. I could never sing high with confidence until I was able to take lessons. That’s when I learned how to change keys! I use so many different tones and voices that I’m able to express my feelings with my voice. Now I can take songs to new and provocative levels.” 

By the early 80’s Angie finally stopped working with her twin and her cousin and was able to do her own thing. She started singing with a group called Drive All Night. In the 90’s she joined the Art Deco and His Society Orchestra. She stayed with them for 8 years. Angie and five former members of Art Deco then formed their own group called Easy Street. 

Angie has recorded and produced many albums since then.
