FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, AUG. 4 AND 5
9 P.M. CAESARS’ CIRCUS MAXIMUS THEATER
WHO ARE THEY: Hailing from New Hampshire, Recycled Percussion invented a style of music known as junk rock. The band, which formed at a high school talent show in 1994, took an inventive approach by incorporating buckets, trash cans, ladders and power tools to produce a one-of-a-kind percussive sound. Recycled Percussion finished third on “America’s Got Talent,” have performed at numerous NBA and NFL halftime shows and had their own show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Recycled Percussion returns to Caesars Atlantic City this weekend prepared to once again captivate audiences with their original percussive assault. This high-energy show will have those in attendance on the edge of their seats. Recycled Percussion combines a truly rocking music show with an acrobatic stage show.

He has released several comedy CDs and has authored two best-selling books.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Comedian Jim Norton lays it all on the line every time he steps out on stage, doing whatever it takes to get a laugh. His comedic style is often referred to as “cringe humor,” which essentially means that he makes a point of discussing the most sensitive subjects in sometimes grotesque detail. While he has received some criticism for his rather vulgar act, appearances on late night talk shows have shown that the man is just as funny when keeping it clean.
SHOW INFO: Tickets are $39.50 and $45.
