Golden Nugget Las Vegas 52 Fridays Performers

May 6 – The Spinners
The Spinners formed in 1957 when the quintet members were high school students in the Detroit suburbs of Ferndale. They were known as the greatest soul group of the early ’70s, creating a body of work that defined the lush, seductive sound of Philly soul. The Spinners R&B hits include “I’ll Always Love You,” “Truly Yours,” and Stevie Wonder’s “It’s a Shame.”

May 13 – Brenda Lee
Get ready for a knee-slapping, toe-tapping good time with one of the most famous country singers in the world! Brenda Lee burst onto the music scene when she was just 9 years old and has been wowing audiences ever since. With her chart-topping hits, including the iconic “I’m Sorry,” Lee is as much fun to watch as she is to listen to.

May 20 – Aaron Neville
New Orleans native Aaron Neville hit the music scene in the 1960’s landing his number one R&B hit, “Tell It Like It Is,” in 1967. Neville has expanded his musical expertise by collaborating with notable country artists like Trisha Yearwood. Along with Aretha Franklin, Neville sang the National Anthem at Super Bowl XL. Throughout his career, Neville has continued to thrill fans with smash hits like “She Took You for a Ride” and “You Think You’re So Smart.”

May 27 – Eric Burdon & The Animals
Coined for their wild stage acts during the British Invasion, The Animals have rocked the music scene since 1962 with such hits as “The House of the Rising Sun,” “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place,” and “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.” Led by the gritty, bluesy sound of front man Eric Burdon, The Animals had ten Top Twenty hits in both the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Hot 100 and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. They also received the Grammy Hall of Fame Awards in both 1999 and 2011.

June 3 – Grass Roots
The Grass Roots had a series of major hits – most notably “Let’s Live for Today,” “Midnight Confessions,” “Temptation Eyes,” and “Two Divided by Love” – that helped define the essence of the era’s best radio. The Grass Roots managed to chart 14 Top 40 hits, including seven gold singles and one platinum single, and had two hits collections that effortlessly went gold.

June 10 – Melissa Manchester
Singer/songwriter Melissa Manchester began singing commercial jingles at age 15. After taking a songwriting class at New York University, taught by Paul Simon, Manchester took her talents to the Manhattan club scene, where she was discovered by Bette Midler and Barry Manilow; the two later hired her as a backup singer in 1971. From there, she went on to perform many great hit songs, including “Whenever I Call You Friend,” and “Don’t Cry Out Loud.”

June 17 – The Magic of Motown: Dennis Edwards’ Temptation Review with Martha Reeves & The Vandellas
Flashback to the ’60s and ’70s with The Magic of Motown. Watch original member of the Temptations, Dennis Edwards, and the Temptation Review perform some of the Temptations greatest hits including, “My Girl,” “Just My Imagination,” and “Stay.” Martha Reeves & The Vandellas continue the show playing Motown favorites, “Love Is Like a Heat Wave” and “Dancing in the Streets.”

June 24 – Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals
The Rascals are considered to be the best ‘blue-eyed soul’ group to come out of the 1960s, as well as one of the groups with the most record sales. The Rascals have a string of hits, including the mega hit, “Good Lovin”, which struck number one in February 1966. They followed suit with hits like “I’ve Been Lonely Too Long,” “Groovin’,” “How Can I Be Sure,” “A Girl Like You,” “A Beautiful Morning,” and “People Got to Be Free.” The Rascals disbanded in 1972 and Felix Cavaliere’s solo career thrived during this decade.
