The Winstons was formed by Jumpin' Joe Phillips, and has worked numerous venues with Jerry Butler, The Stylistics, The Delfonics and many others.
After the success of the hit record "Color Him Father", the original set of Winstons dismantled and went in separate directions. Their are no original members from the 1969 group. But since 1996, The Winstons, under the direction of Joe Phillips, have been performing the classic hit song, "Color Him Father", at major concert venues all over the country, including the world famous Apollo Theatre in New York City, The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA., Symphony Hall in Newark, New Jersey, The Lyric Opera House in Baltimore, Maryland and more. This song went #1 R&B in 1969 and the top 10 on the hot 100. The writer, Richard Spencer, received a Grammy award for the best new song of the year.
The Bernie Mac Show has featured the Winstons (New) Electric Slide, (from the Winstons self-titled cd), on their 100th anniversary show.
This CD shows the southern soul and blues side of The Winstons. You will be stompin' your feet to the grooves on this CD.
