1956, Elvis Presley and his trio played the first night of a two-week engagement (playing 2 shows a day) at the New Frontier Hotel, Las Vegas. Elvis wasn’t the typical Las Vegas Strip entertainer of the time and his shows were met largely with indiference. The Las Vegas Sun said “For the teen-agers, the long, tall Memphis lad is a whiz; for the average Vegas spender or showgoer, a bore. His musical sound with a combo of three is uncouth, matching to a great extent the lyric content of his nonsensical songs.”
