As music director for the Sands, he came into contact with America’s top performers of the day like Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis, Jr.  The Morelli House was moved to its permanent location in 2001, after which it was listed on the Nevada State Register of Historic Places.  It is currently the headquarters of the Junior League of Las Vegas, and is undergoing an interior rehabilitation.
