Super-group Spectrum recreates the style and sounds of the greatest Motown, classic soul and R & B groups of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Formed by Cushney Roberts in 1995 to portray the Four Tops in American /Superstars and later Legends in Concert, Spectrum was revamped to broaden its’ “Spectrum” of material and appeal as the act successfully entered the ranks of headliners where they remain comfortably as they continue to frequent the Pops symphony circuit, headlining their own shows in which they perform stirring renditions of the all the best cover tunes.
Webster defines Spectrum as a “series of radiations arranged in regular order” or a “continuous sequence or wide range”. This could not be a more appropriate description of the award-winning group Spectrum, which draws upon the talent of four radiant voices and diverse personalities to form a first class vocal quartet.
The group boasts four incredible singers, each with the voice of a solo artist, who combine their voices and dexterity to create the angelic harmonies and deft choreography that have become trademarks of Spectrum. The members of Spectrum consist of master recording artist Darryl Grant of Oakland, California, Chicago-born musician and versatile entertainer Pierre Jovan, David Prescott the silky-smooth, soaring-voiced first tenor from Rochester, New York and lastly, singer, actor and group founder Cushney Roberts, from East Orange, New Jersey, who left the life of a Princeton-educated corporate engineer and cut his teeth in the casino lounges in route to becoming a well-respected Las Vegas showroom entertainer. Let’s just say this is a group of well-mannered, college-educated, world-traveled veterans of the entertainment business, who will entertain you!
In 2012 Spectrum joined the ranks of Las Vegas Legends Wayne Newton, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Liberace, Rich Little, Siegfried and Roy, Elvis and many more when they were awarded the 68th Star on Las Vegas’ Walk of Fame. Spectrum performs in Las Vegas, throughout the nation and around the globe. Check their website for scheduled performances.( http://spectrumsings.com )
