Recycled Percussion to Rock WWU

Prepare to be rocked! William Woods University will host a concert March 8 by Recycled Percussion, the third-place finalists last season on NBC’s America’s Got Talent.


The concert, which is free and open to the public, will be held at 7 p.m. (9 p.m. if the Owls host the AMC championship game at 7–won’t know until after Friday night’s semi-final game) in Cutlip Auditorium of the McNutt Campus Center. It is sponsored by Campus Activities Board (CAB).


Recycled Percussion, which is made up of four young men from Goffstown, N.H., single-handedly brought the terms “power-percussion” and “junk rock” into mainstream music circles. They describe their dynamic sound as “powerful, industrial drumming, backed by metal grinding guitar, mixed with hip-hop/funk DJ.”


They have been creating their unique style of music for the past 10 years by performing on such everyday household objects as plastic buckets, huge ladders, mortar casings, trashcans and giant 50-gallon containers to create a mesmerizing, heart-pounding experience for their audiences.


Band members include band leader and percussionist Justin Spencer, percussionist Ryan Vezina, guitarist Jimmy Magoon  and spinmaster, keyboardist and vocalist Todd Griffin, also known as DJ Pharoah.
