Recycled Percussion to play

Recycled Percussion, the original innovators of metal grinding, bucket bashing, junk rock drumming, will play starting at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 15, at the Smith Opera House, sponsored by the HWS Campus Activities Board.

The group, described as full power, completely ballistic all-out rock and roll powerhouse drumming that takes junk, funk, punk, and puts it into a fist-driven sweat drenched explosion, is backed by “DJ Dirty Soul.”

Their instruments consist of recycled trash cans, ladders, drills, buckets, cans, cones, water tanks, gas tanks, scuba tanks, duct tape, a chain saw, their bodies and voices, drumsticks, and even the kitchen sink you've heard about.

Recycled Percussion started four years ago in Goffstown, N.H., when three students decided to play rhythms on recycled objects for a high school talent show.

Their show is a high-energy mix of African, Latin, and American rock and hip hop rhythms that will both assault and soothe the senses.

Astonishing musical discipline, physical athleticism and a visual performance orchestrated to an array of sparkling metal grinders and a vibrant light show has made their performance a “can't miss” show, according to NBC's “TODAY” show, the NBA, Disney, and others.

Tickets for students, faculty and staff can be purchased in the Student Life and Leadership Office and are $3 each. Tickets for the public can be purchased at The Smith Opera House for $7.

Event sponsored by Student Life and Leadership.
