Brenda & the Tabulations were an American R&B group, formed in 1966 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, originally composed of Brenda Payton, Eddie L. Jackson, Maurice Coates and Jerry Jones.

The group has released a total of three albums: Dry Your Eyes on Dionn Records (1967), Brenda and the Tabulations on Top & Bottom Records (1970), and I Keep Coming Back For More on Chocolate City/Casablanca (1977), although by the time of the last album, Brenda Payton was relatively a solo act while keeping the group name.
