The Group, F S & B would like to WELCOME you to our Web Site to sit back, relax and enjoy this (two track) Album. Not only that, but to have you read up on some information the group would like to share with you, about ourselves.
F S & B (father, son and a brother) was formed in the fall of 2003. The group consists of three God fearing, Christ loving, Holy Ghost filled men, who enjoy singing and playing music to the glory of God. In fact, we would like to thank God for giving us the gift of ministry through music and song. We also thank Him for the privilege and opportunity to use those gifts to bless others, and hopefully to bless you as you listen online right now.
Art Spires is the son of the legendary Chicago blues vocalist and guitarist, Arthur â€œBig Boyâ€ Spires. Art was blessed to inherit some of his fatherâ€™s ability to sing and he uses that talent singing to the glory of God. Art has also done missionary work in such places as Haiti and Kenya. He was born in Yazoo City, Mississippi, but later employment would carry him to Flint, Michigan. After living there for some time he and his family migrated to Portland, Oregon.
The album guitarist, Marvin Spires, who is also Artâ€™s son, was born while his parents were still living in Flint. Marvin is also one of the background singers of this group and he sings with the Praise Team at Mt. Olivet Baptist Church in Portland, Oregon. When Marvin isnâ€™t leading his Cell group, singing or playing at the church, youâ€™ll probably find him on the fish bank. He loves to fish. In fact, all of the group members like to fish, and allow the Lord to make us fishers of men.
I (Clarence Rogers), the Executive Producer of this album, count it a blessing and privilege to record with such great guys. I am a native of Sylacauga, Alabama, and often like to joke, â€œyou know the â€œBig Cityâ€ (12,883) where Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) is fromâ€. This is my fourth album and Iâ€™m working on something currently thatâ€™s â€œHotâ€, perhaps to be released later this year. I love working with these guys, because Marvinâ€™s guitar playing and brother Artâ€™s style of singing kind of take me back home.
