House Party Tonight The Treniers, pioneers of rock and roll, were one of the longest running musical groups in history, performing continuously from 1948 through 2003. They played all across the United States from Los Angeles to Boston, Chicago, New York, Miami, Atlantic City and all points in between. But their favorite venue was Las Vegas, where they were a staple in the casino lounges for decades. A black group early in their career many of the establishments they performed in were white-only and The Treniers had to be escorted into and out of the venue by a white person. But the discrimination of those early days didn't stop them. They persevered and became one of the most sought after groups in America and beyond. Legendary saxophonist Don Hill played with famous bandleaders such as Louis Armstrong and Gerald Wilson before becoming a founding member of The Treniers. He was still with the group when they finally disbanded in 2003. Today, at the age of 91, Don plays with the Speakeasy Swingers in Las Vegas and his sax continues to produce the sweet sounds it did 54 years ago. Don tells his remarkable story in House Party Tonight, supplemented with dozens of photos taken over the years. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in rock and roll or black entertainment history.

Houdini Souvenir Program

This is an actual reproduction of the souvenir program sold at HOUDINI's shows in the lobby of the theaters during the 1925-26 season  He was presenting his performances on a coast-to-coast tour(s) of North America.

 

Very interesting historical item relating to HOUDINI.

Dennis’ debut in non-fiction, Policing Las Vegas – A History of Law Enforcement in Southern Nevada, was released in April 2005. It covers the evolution of law enforcement in Las Vegas and Clark County from the city’s establishment in 1905. His second non-fiction, The Battle for Las Vegas – The Law versus the Mob, tells the story of the Tony Spilotro era in Las Vegas from 1971 thru 1986. It was released in July 2006 and was a Computer Times Editor’s Selection in October 2006. His third non-fiction, released in July 2007, was CULLOTTA, the biography of former Chicago and Las Vegas mobster Frank Cullotta. His latest effort is Surviving The Mob, the biography of former Gambino crime family associate Andrew DiDionato, which hit store shelves in January 2011.
In October 2012, House Party Tonight, the story of legendary saxophonist Don Hill, was published by Houdini Books. That book was followed in December by Rogue Town, the true story of crime and corruption in Stamford, Connecticut, also by Houdini.
Dennis is co-host of the popular Blog Talk Radio show Crime Wire, and serves as a consultant to the Vegas Mob Tour. He recently opened BEAR Media Consultants, which helps match true crime movie and documentary producers, writers and event coordinators, with potential technical consultants and speakers for their projects or events.
He is an active member of the Henderson Writers Group, Public Safety Writers Association, and Sisters in Crime.
