Diana Krall
Five-time Grammy-winning jazz pianist and vocalist Diana Krall returns to Atlantic City for a show at the Circus Maximus Theater.

Diana Krall is one of the most accomplished and distinctive musicians in the world today. Respected far and wide as a wildly successful recording and performing artist, she remains a true musical force.

Boardwalk Hall "Winter Sweet" 3-D Light Show
"Winter Sweet" is a seven-minute show featuring three magical worlds projected onto the façade of Boardwalk Hall. The free, nightly show celebrates the wonders of winter while showcasing the visual beauty and elegance of the season. By using hundreds of visual elements, including a number of 3D effects, Moment Factory captured the enchanting season and heartwarming, memorable moments of winter.
 

The first world, Snow and Ice, features historic Boardwalk Hall icing over as winter approaches. Projections of dancing ballerinas, softly falling snow and a train that appears to be chugging along the top of the building evoke the magical season until a crumbling effect acts as a transition to the second world. In the second world, Winter Village, Boardwalk Hall is transformed into a candy wonderland, lit by the glow of candles, sledding elves and sugary treats with a humorous and surprise ending. The third and final world, Illumination, features elegant ornaments and intricate lighting that eventually “melts” the surface of the building as spring and new beginnings come to Atlantic City.

From America's Got talent! Extraordinary comedic force *Kevin Downey, Jr.* has been recently labeled "refreshingly bizarre" by fellow comedian Joe Mulligan.

Most importantly, Kevin headlines shows at military bases around the world. From San Francisco to Singapore, Kansas City to Kuwait, Detroit to Djibouti, Kalamazoo to Kwajalein... You get the picture.

Carl's humor is an original blend, using satire. It's thought provoking, clean and relates to life as one sees it, but with a slight twist. He adds meaning to every episode. His creative talents include impressions, singing and developing characters. His versatility, stage presence and flair to work intimate settings, as well as national concert stages, have made Carl one of the most sought after acts in the entertainment circuit.

Dwight Yoakam
Few entertainers have attained the iconic status of Dwight Yoakam. Perhaps that is because so few have consistently and repeatedly met the high standard of excellence delivered by the Kentucky native no matter what his endeavor. His name immediately conjures up compelling, provocative images: A pale cowboy hat with the brim pulled low; poured-on blue jeans; intricate, catchy melodies paired with poignant, brilliant lyrics that mesmerize with their indelible imprint. Then there’s Yoakam the actor, who seemingly melts into his roles, impressively standing toe-to-toe with some of the world’s top thespians: Jodie Foster, Tommy Lee Jones, Forest Whitaker, Nicolas Cage. Add to that Yoakam the entrepreneur and you have a singular talent without peer.

Yoakam’s latest Warner Bros. album, 3 Pears, exemplifies his ability to incorporate multiple, competing influences into a piece of cohesive art. It balances his country core with a fiercely independent embrace of rock, Americana, pop and soul. It blends Yoakam’s respect for his musical predecessors with the collaborative assistance of modern singer/songwriter Beck, who co-produced two tracks, and current rocker Kid Rock, who co-wrote the hooky opener, “Take Hold of My Hand.” But most importantly, 3 Pears builds on his trademark edginess with a notable, growing positivity.
