LAS VEGAS '56
When "The Atomic Powered Singer" ELVIS PRESLEY was singing Rock'n'Roll, loudly, in Frank Sinatra's Town.
Erik Lorentzen released a book about Elvis' very first gig in Las Vegas.
Elvis Presley made his Las Vegas debut on April 23, 1956. He performs in the Venus Room at the Frontier Hotel. Elvis Presley is in the forefront of the Freddie Martin Orchestra and the comedian Shecky Greene. He is booked for two weeks.
And as always Erik Lorentzen promises plenty of previously unpublished photos
