The Whispers 

Saturday, November 3, at the State Theatre.

Made up of four solid R&B singers, the Whispers' lineup has remained relatively unchanged over the past 44 years. In 2006, they released For Your Ears Only, after nearly a decade's absence from recording. And they remain at the top of their game with dance grooves (the Babyface-penned "Rock Steady"), spirited sing-alongs ("And the Beat Goes On"), and silky ballads ("Living Together [in Sin]"). The Whispers — who've snagged seven gold albums, two platinum albums, and twelve Top 10 singles over the years — were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2003. Their live shows have become reliable crowd-pleasers for fans of soulful street-corner harmonies and classy dance moves.
