Roberta's Las Vegas Real Estate Blog: Las Vegas Safe Sax?

Las Vegas Safe Sax?

What Happens Here...Stays Here. Sure, but get you mind out of the gutter, I'm talking about the amazing entertainment choices found all over Las Vegas, and Carl 'Safe Sax' Ferris is one of them. You may have heard his music before, and not only here in Vegas. He's played with Electric Light Orchestra, Dave Mason, The Marshall Tucker Band, and many more. Carl's home is here in the valley, and for the last 8 years his 'other' home has been the Fremont Street Experience downtown.

Carl Ferris 'Safe Sax' - Fremont Street Experience

Carl plays in the Mardi Gras atmosphere of Fremont Street, and other than a few vacation days you can hear him play most every night. His street musician show is free and he's not alone, as there are stages at 1st and 3rd streets for other musicians and performers. It all happens underneath the 4 block long Viva Vision's hourly shows, on the world's largest TV with over 12.5 million LED lights. Carl is featured in one of the canopy shows, and of course he also sings in some of his original music when he performs. One tune that every downtown Las Vegas visitor has surely heard is his Fremont Street Song.

This touch of 'Old Vegas' is just one of the many entertainment offerings found throughout the valley. As the Golden Nugget continues it's expansion and the Lady Luck project slated to start next year, there will be more to come. Combining this with everything on the Strip and at the local casino resorts like the soon to open Eastside Cannery, then add the tons of recreation found here, it's no wonder why Las Vegas is the 'Entertainment Capital of the World'. Living here in the Vegas valley your next vacation is just a short drive away, any night of the week.

Roberta - I have been downtown so many time with friends and relatives that come into town and have seen Carl many times. He is very good and I wasn't aware that he had played with all those bands like ELO.

Welcome to the group and thanks for the post and yes:

Michael:  Yes, make sure you check him out!  He is quite an entertainer!

Robert:  Next time you have friends or relatives on a tour, you will have a bit of information about Carl to share with them.  He is very talented!
