J. Robert Spencer Salutes Marvin Gaye at Rockers!

October 29th, 2007

Thank you to Kathy Bartsche for her terrific Youtube coverage of “Rockers on Broadway”! Listen to the amazing Bobby Spencer singing some of Marvin Gaye’s greatest hits!


  1. That was great.I think Robert Spencer is great . I know he kids around and says he’s the Ringo Starr Of the group, but he really knows his stuff! I can’t wait till we can see the movie that Tribecca Film Festivial picked up,”Farm Girl In New York”. GREAT JOB!!

  3. Isn’t it incredible how relevant “Mercy, Mercy, Me” is today, 36 years after it was recorded, as is “What’s Goin’ On?”, from the same album? And Bobby really did “Mercy” justice.

    Bobby showed his talent at the Ben Folds’ Musicology earlier this year when he so beautifully sang the sad and haunting “Late”, a wonderful tribute to the late singer/songwriter Eliot Smith.

    Re being the Ringo of the group, we all should remember that after the Beatles’ breakup, Ringo hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 before John Lennon did!

  4. I am so sorry to miss Rockers this year. Judging from the posted videos, it was amazing. I’m so glad Bobby had a solo number. He is so talented and a great performer. Can’t wait to see his film and Rockers next year.
