Good Charlotte rockers Benji and Joel Madden played a surprise acoustic set Friday at the private opening of Dusk, the new club at Caesars in Atlantic City. It opens officially on July 4 with a party featuring the sounds of DJ AM, a partner in the club with owners Red Stripe Plane Group Nicole Ritchie accompanied husband Joel Madden to the performance. She's seven months pregnant with the couple's second child and if you'll recall was once engaged to AM, raised as Adam Goldstein on Rittenhouse Square. AM was not at the party Friday.

Racing legend Mario Andretti and former Phillies catcher Darren Daulton were among guests at Dusk where Mark Stylz, resident DJ at the Palms in Las Vegas entertained the crowd in the main room and Philly's DJ Royale, spun in the  more-chill Dawn room. Defense attorney Chuck Peruto, Jr., Wired 96.5’s G-N Kang and Internet sensation Arthur Kade were also at the party where some guests were buzzing that Nick Nolte, in A.C. shooting a film called “Warrior,” and Jennifer Aniston, there shooting “Bounty Hunter” with Gerard Butler, were going to show up. They did not.
