Recycled Percussion at the Tropicana
Oh my God, these guys are fantastic. I was going to write a civilised music review piece, but Recycled Percussion are just too good to be civilised.
From the moment they descend upon the stage playing their instruments upside down and hanging from the ceiling, the entire audience is awestruck. Recycled Percussion (former America’s Got Talent finalists), are hard core musicians and serious entertainers. These guys dance, juggle drumsticks, jump off ladders and play drums and guitar like nobody on earth.
When you arrive at the theatre, you are given a set of drumsticks and a piece of recycled trash (such as an old pot or rubbish bin lid) and then you are seated at tables and encouraged to join in at intervals in the interactive show. I’ve never had so much fun and was thoroughly entertained. We enjoyed meeting the band after the show, who were more than happy to sign autographs and have pictures taken and then my husband and I played our ‘air drums’ all the way up the Strip. You absolutely must see these guys. Good clean fun for the whole family.

Mob Attraction at the Tropicana
If the Mob Attraction is anything like it’s predecessor the Las Vegas Mob Experience, then you are in for an experience indeed.
Each guest is given a mobster identity and then taken through a fun interactive story sequence. The world of organised crime is portrayed through a series of artefacts, live characters and apparitions. It’s like nothing we’ve ever seen before. The personal possessions of mobsters like Bugsy Segal are on display and a behind the scenes film of the making of the Godfather is showing on a loop.
We left there with visions of gangsters and were desperate to see the Godfather trilogy. Now whenever we think of Vegas, we remember its’ rich ‘mobster’ history.
