After Reno we got booked at the Dunes Hotel in Las Vegas. We got to play with some great show business people. Tony Bennett headlined the main showroom and we shared the lounge with the talented New Orleands trumpeter Al Hirt and his band. We didn't really get to play peak show times but we still created a buzz. Even Mr. Hirt and Mr. Bennett would stay and listen when we played. Below is a picture of 'the Suttletones'.
Now it appears I am going to start my solo career. Manager Bobby Roberts (works with Pierre Cossette) is wanting to sign me, and not the Suttletones. He is talking about making records and movies! I can tell he is already working on things because he is saying he could get me an audition for George Burns, who has a reputation for discovering new talent. Only thing I need to do is work on getting myself and my accompaniest Scott (from the Suttletones) out of a contract we had with Frenchy, the manager we had in Chicago. I am really hoping he works with us so we can get things going with Bobby and Mr. Burns. Keep your fingers crossed.
