Recycled Percussion Combines Beats, Humor & Athleticism

Posted: Updated:

You've seen them on NBC's "America's Got Talent," now YOU can play along…LIVE at The Quad in Las Vegas.  Grab drumsticks and an instrument as you enter the theater, or just kick back and watch the most exciting show on the Strip! 

"We couldn't be happier to kick-off 2013 in our new home at The Quad. The central location on The Strip is perfect for our all-ages show," said band leader Justin Spencer. "We've added in a lot of new creative elements to expand our appeal and allow us to connect with our audiences on a deeper and even more interactive level. We're really excited."

Produced by one of Las Vegas' most highly-regarded producers, David Saxe, the new Recycled Percussion show promises to be the most impressive yet.  The show has been rocking the Las Vegas Strip for over two years with an unprecedented combination of extreme percussion, engaging humor and extraordinary athleticism. Whether playing on buckets, ladders, grinders or sinks, Recycled Percussion's boundless energy and creativity are sure to blow audiences away.

"Recycled Percussion is exactly what the future of Vegas entertainment is all about. It's exhilarating to work with guys who are crazy enough to try every hysterical idea I throw at them. They are so clever and talented," said producer David Saxe.

In what can only be described as the most interactive show in Las Vegas, upon entrance to the show guests are equipped with a drumstick and instrument, encouraging them to play along to the junk rock fun.

"As we continue to update the offerings at the recently re-named Quad Resort & Casino, it's only fitting that we bring to our Showroom a production like Recycled Percussion," said Rick Mazer, president of the center Strip property. "Like The Quad, Recycled Percussion embodies the feeling of fun and connectivity, and I know that our guests will enjoy the interactive nature of one of the most exciting shows on the Las Vegas Strip."

Formed in 1994 in New Hampshire at a high school talent show, Recycled Percussion's first performance gave birth to the style of music now known as junk rock. Justin Spencer, who has been named the world's "fastest extreme drummer," along with fellow drummer Ryan Vezina, guitarist M att Bowman and DJ Todd Griffin have averaged more than 250 shows a year since. The band was introduced in living rooms across the country on the hit TV show "America's Got Talent," where the group placed third out of more than 100,000 acts and became the first non-singing act to place in the top three in show history.

Recycled Percussion has appeared on the cover of USA TODAY, has performed on numerous television shows including the "Today Show," and most recently played their biggest show ever by performing on "China's Got Talent."  The audience at the outdoor stadium was over 80,000 and the home viewership reached more than 610 million viewers.  The band has also performed at the 2010 Latin Grammys, World MMA Awards, NBA and NFL halftime shows, convention general session openers, corporate events, college performances and more.
