Included will be appearances by All FIVE Original Group Members – The First Time in Over Five Years
The Nevada Room, one of Las Vegas’s premier supper clubs featuring delicious food and incredible live entertainment, is proud to present the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the iconic R&B group and Las Vegas musical fixture, The Next Movement, on Friday and Saturday, April 22 and April 23, 2022.
For the first time in over five years, these two iconic performances will feature all five original group members on stage together: Samuel Thomas Jr., Earl Shelby, Carnell Haywood, Alonso Pickens and Guy Sutton, along with The Next Movement Band.
Named “The Best Vocal Group in Chicago” by Oprah Winfrey, the group’s Las Vegas roots are deep, opening for comedian Redd Foxx at The Thunderbird and have played numerous venues throughout the city to great acclaim via an ever-growing fan base over the past 30 years.
The Next Movement was originally formed in 1972 on the South Side of Chicago, as five friends gathered outside their apartment buildings to sing the songs that they loved the most—the music of The Temptations, The Chi-Lites, The Jackson 5ive, James Brown, The O’Jays, and Stevie Wonder, to name but a few.
From these humble beginnings, the amazing group that they formed—The Next Movement—is still going strong and growing, proving that incredible music and fastfriendships can indeed stand the test of time.
“We are honored not only to have The Next Movement with us on an on-going basis via their Nevada Room residency, but to help them celebrate their 50th Anniversary,” says Tom Michel, President of The Vegas and Nevada Rooms.
“It is an understatement to say that their fans, the countless lovers of their music, are euphoric when it comes to experiencing them live, along with their dazzling ‘smooth as glass’ dance moves. I can only imagine how special and how spectacular these evenings are going to be with all five original group members on stage.”
