A popular entertainer in the Laughlin-Bullhead City area beginning in the 1970s, Nat Brown left behind scrapbooks bulging with articles documenting his life and his music when he died in 2008. The scrapbooks eventually ended up at a garage sale, where Elsie Needles, the president of the Colorado River Historical Society, recognized them as a valuable piece of local history. Nat was born in Philadelphia and came to the tri-state area by way of San Diego and Las Vegas. He was a regular performer at the Regency Casino Lounge piano bar where his sets included jazz, calypso, blues, and the music of the Big Band Era. He was a fan of Nat “King” Cole from a young age. In addition to the piano, he played the guitar and electric piano. His scrapbooks are now part of the collections at the Colorado River Museum.
