Recycled Percussion

7:30pm

Danville, KY
Straight from the Las Vegas strip and smash hit performances on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” Recycled Percussion is taking the Newlin Hall stage by storm, defining a new genre of music called ‘Junk Rock’ by making catchy beats on bizarre, everyday objects. Formed in 1995 by band leader Justin Spencer, Recycled Percussion combines extreme percussion, engaging humor and extraordinary athleticism similar to that of STOMP and Blue Man Group.
