Recycled Percussion to Bring Their Junk Rock Style to American Troops In Kuwait

February 6, 2011 by  

Las Vegas headliners Recycled Percussion will take their unique show halfway across the world for the second time in six months. The band will play a series of shows for United States service man and women stationed in Kuwait in the middle of April.

The band was invited to play at 5 different bases throughout Kuwait and perform in front of an estimated 30,000 to 40,000 soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors at these bases. The request came on the heels of their performance on China’s Got Talent where they played in front of an estimated 610 million people. The trip to Kuwait will last eight days in total and take place in mid-April.

“We are thrilled at the opportunity to go and play for our armed forces overseas,” said band founder Justin Spencer. “We are from New Hampshire originally and we know that there are a great many service men and women from our home state that are currently stationed inside Kuwait. The chance to go over there and pay our respects to all of those people currently serving our country is a tremendous honor.”

Formed in 1994 in New Hampshire at their High School talent show, Recycled Percussion’s first performance gave birth to the style of music now known as JUNK ROCK. This small-town band has built their show into one of the more powerful live performances in entertainment. During every show, the band mixes their gritty assault on buckets, power tools or anything else they can get their sticks on with a sense of humor and gravity defying athleticism. The band is currently busy making the final preparations for their revamped show in an all-ages venue at Tropicana.

Along with Spencer, who has been named the world’s fastest drummer, fellow drummer Ryan Vezina, guitarist Jim Magoon and DJ Todd Griffin started to tour the world as Recycled Percussion in 2001 and have averaged over 250 shows a year since. It was then that they started gaining a reputation for unforgettable live performances, winning the award for “entertainers of the year” a record six times. The band also played in living rooms across the country all the way to its recent 3rd place finish on the hit television show “America’s Got Talent” on NBC. The group placed 3rd out of over 100,000 acts and became the first non-singing act to place in the top 3 in show history. The group has appeared on the cover of “USA TODAY” and has performed on the “Today Show,” “Carson Daly,” “Talk Soup,” “Crook and Chase,” and many more.
