Services set for Freddie Bell

Long-time Las Vegas entertainer Freddie Bell, who kept the lounges rockin’ for more than 40 years, will be buried Sunday.

The 76-year-old Philadelphia native died of lung cancer Feb. 10 at a Las Vegas hospital.

Viewing will be from noon to 2 p.m. at Palm Mortuary, 7600 Eastern Ave. Services will follow in the chapel and at graveside.

A memorial party will be held at 4:30 p.m. At the Italian American Club, 2333 E. Sahara Ave.

Bell, born Ferdinando Dominico Bello, first arrived in Vegas in 1953 with his group Freddie Bell and the Bellboys.

Bell continued to work as a single into the ‘90s, returning to the Sands Hotel (where his Las Vegas career began) to celebrate its closing in June 1996.
