Five Special

Formed 1978 in Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A.

Disbanded 1981.

Five Special comprised of:

Bryan Banks,

Greg Finley

Steve Harris

Steve Boyd and Mike Petillo


This Detroit vocal group included lead singer Bryan Banks, the brother of the Dramatics’ Ron Banks.

They got off to a promising start in 1979, as their Elektra single ‘Why Leave Us Alone’ made it to number nine on the R & B charts.

It was their lone big hit.

Two other singles just made the R & B Top 30, and they disbanded after the release of their second album ‘Special Edition’.

The album was produced by Ron Banks, Bryan’s brother and contained a track penned by the late Garry Glenn entitled ‘Why Not Be Mine For A While’.

Wayne Henderson worked on the project in a role as Executive Producer.
