Today, Las Vegas, Nevada is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, famous for its gambling, its giant casinos, its mega-hotels (the city’s metropolitan area has more AAA Five Diamond hotels than any other city in the world) as well as for all the entertainment – both culinary and musical – necessary to keep its annual 40 million visitors fed, wined, dined, soothed, and distracted.
Nomadic Paleo-Indians may have been Las Vegas’ earliest known inhabitants, having travelled through the region some 10,000 years ago, and a mere two millennia ago, the Anasazi and Paiute tribes called this subtropical basin on the floor of the Mojave Desert, home. Mexicans travelling north in the early 1800s named the area Las Vegas, which is Spanish for “The Meadows,” because the topography featured abundant wild grasses and desert spring waters.
Las Vegas was incorporated as a city in 1911, but it was only in 1931, that two coincidental events propelled it into the modern era and influenced its future identity. The first was the legalization of casino gambling in Nevada, which brought gamers from near and far, and the second was the beginning of construction on the nearby Hoover Dam, which brought construction workers and their families to the area and helped Las Vegas avoid economic calamity during the Great Depression.
But, the final shaping of Las Vegas’ character – at least for most of the mid-to-late 20th century – was largely due to another group of “settlers,” who saw the desert city as a potentially endless spigot of money, and in the years after World War II, decided to build the first casino-hotels in order to attract high-rollers and take from them whatever they could get. When mobsters like Bugsy Siegel and Myer Lansky moved in, Las Vegas truly began to live up to its nickname – “Sin City.”
With money laundered through area banks, they built the Flamingo Hotel in 1946. From 1952 to 1957, the Sahara, the Sands, the New Frontier, the Royal Nevada, the Showboat, the Riviera, the Fremont, Binion’s Horseshoe (which was the Apache Hotel), and the Tropicana were also erected .
And that’s how Las Vegas became not only a gambling Mecca, but an entertainment one, as well. Because all of those hotels and all of the bars, lounges, casinos, and restaurants in town needed singers and musicians to entertain the tourists who were beginning to come to Vegas in droves (by 1954, over 8 million people were visiting yearly, pumping $200 million into casinos). So, the stars began to arrive – Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr., (of the famous “Rat Pack”) along with popular entertainers such as Elvis Presley, Andy Williams, Liberace, Bing Crosby, and Carol Channing, all played the big rooms, while countless other musicians and singers performed in the city’s many remaining venues.
The days of the “Rat Pack,” style of entertainment live on to some degree in Las Vegas (Wayne Newton, “Mr. Las Vegas,” still performs all over the city), but its 21st century iteration is a bit tamer and, more often than in the past, Las Vegas entertainment is targeted to family audiences. However, big rooms such as the The Colosseum at Caesars Palace continue to book big-name musical acts such as Cher, Celine Dion, Bette Midler, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Shania Twain, and Mariah Carey.
The cultural life of Las Vegas also extends to its native population of approximately 600,000, with over 2,000,000 people living in the greater metropolitan area. For example, the Smith Center for the Performing Arts is a downtown Las Vegas venue, built in 2012. This world-class performing arts center hosts Broadway shows as well as orchestral, opera, ballet, choir, jazz, and dance performances. It is also the home of the Las Vegas Philharmonic Orchestra.
Las Vegas also has a growing alternative music scene. The Killers is a home-grown band that has sold more than 25 million records, making it the all-time best-selling group from Nevada. Imagine Dragons is a Las Vegas band that won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance, five Billboard Music Awards, and a World Music Award. As a result of the downtown Las Vegas restoration that began in 2006, many new bars and clubs that have opened in the Fremont East district have become home to a thriving indie music scene. The Las Vegas indie music community even has its own yearly festival, called Neon Reverb. Punk rock, Hip-Hop musicians, and Hardcore bands also have their local fans. Punk Rock Bowling, held in downtown Las Vegas, is one of the premiere festivals in the country attracting real die-hard punk fans from all over the world.
Not every home-grown band is destined to sell 25 million albums or win a Grammy. But that doesn’t mean that smaller, lesser-known groups are locked out of the music scene. Every day, in Las Vegas and elsewhere, musicians are recording and self-producing their own creations. And getting that work out to a wider audience is what we help them do at Bison Disc. We’re the company that duplicates, replicates, and packages their music CDs. We make as many as needed and we create customized packaging options in a wide variety of Jewel cases, Jackets, Wallets, Sleeves, and Digipaks.Las Vegas has been the background for dozens of major Hollywood motion pictures over the years. Some notable films include: Ocean’s Eleven (the 1960 original and the 2001 remake), Viva Las Vegas, starring Elvis Presley, Diamonds are Forever, Starman, Rain Man, Casino, Con Air, Leaving Las Vegas, Showgirls, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Knocked Up, Ironman, The Hangover, Ocean’s Thirteen, Last Vegas, and many others. These days, all of those movies have been made available on DVD and/or Blu-ray disc. In fact, outside of the neighborhood multiplex where actual film stock still reigns, most movies have been converted to the more easily handled disc format and are viewed that way by the rest of us. At Bison Disc, we help the next generation of great filmmakers get their art seen because we duplicate, replicate, and package their DVDs of their movies, so that they can disseminate them in a professionally produced, yet affordable way. While you may decide to visit Las Vegas for a gambling spree, when it comes to procuring well-designed, sturdy, affordable, and artistic jackets, sleeves or cases for a CD or DVD project, it makes sense to only back a sure winner. For 20 years, Bison Disc has been the music and film industries’ disc duplicator and packager of choice, responding to the needs of bands, recording artists and studios, artist managers, filmmakers, and the like. In our line of business, we like to think of Bison Disc as yet another “Entertainment Capital of the World.”
