Static and electrifying is how we define the music of The Whispers. The group adopted electronic funk into its sound as the '80s approached. Discos or late-night bars is where its music often played. The singers were keen to adjust to the changing times since the band's professional debut out of the '60s. The band is still remembered for hit songs like "Rock Steady."
Let's "Rock Steady" all Night at The Whispers' Concert
It was more than mere whispers that brought the sound of these Watts, Californian, residents to the stage. The group's captivating sound began with twin brothers. Having these identical faces on stage gave the band a unique presence. The voices that followed supported their image with a strong musical potential. The Scott brothers were supported by up to four other vocalists from time to time. Their clean, suited attire made them stand out from most performers in the then "boogie" industry of the mid '70s. Boogie compositions are based on what's described as a shuffle rhythm. The Whispers wielded such signature details through a blend of bass, piano and pop blues. "And the Beat Goes On" is what captured their sound before the '80s took flight. These professionals were prepared for the transformation. That "beat-driven" 1979 tune of theirs hit No. 20 on Billboard's Hot 100. Though the group's singers changed from 1963 to today, the leaders of the Whispers kept recreating a recognizable sound. You can hear each tune today as performed live by three of the original artists.
