Played Out on the Strip - The Rise and Fall of Las Vegas Casino Bands by Janis L. McKay

Description: From 1940 to 1989, nearly every hotel on the Strip employed a full-time band or orchestra.  After the late 1980’s almost all of these musicians were replaced by synthesizers and taped music. This book brings into the spotlight these supporting players who gave young Las Vegas a rich dimension.  With its numerous personal interviews giving perspective from the era, this book will appeal to readers interested in Las Vegas history, music history, and labor issues. Published by University of Nevada Press (2016). 242 pages.
