Recycled Percussion returns to Northwest as Encore performer

By Erin Dillon, media relations assistant

Recycled Percussion will return to the Northwest stage Tuesday, Feb. 10. The band will perform at 7:30 p.m. in the Ron Houston Center for Performing Arts. Northwest Missouri State University will welcome a band, with a unique “junk rock” style unlike any other as the next performer in the University’s 2014-2015 Encore performance series.

Recycled Percussion will return to the Northwest stage Tuesday, Feb. 10. The band will perform at 7:30 p.m. in the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts. The performance is open to the general public.

Tickets for the performance are on sale between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Student Services Center on the first floor of the Administration Building or online at www.nwmissouri.edu/getinvolved/. Individual adult tickets are $23 for balcony seating or $25 for orchestra seating; student tickets are $13 each for balcony seating or $15 for orchestra seating. Tickets for Northwest students are free.

The band consists of four members and was formed by Justin Spencer in 1995 for a high school talent show. Their unique style utilizes traditional drum kits as well as items such as plastic buckets, metal tanks, chainsaws and jackhammers. This spunky group turns just about anything into an instrument.

Recycled Percussion, which previously performed at Northwest in 2007, has since appeared as finalists on “America’s Got Talent” in 2009. They have also made appearances on “The Today Show,” “China's Got Talent,” the 2010 Latin Grammys, the World MMA Awards, and during NBA and NFL halftime shows.

Anthony Maly, campus activities coordinator for Northwest, is looking forward to the high-energy performance and believes it’s a good mix for the Encore performance series. Audience members should enjoy this performance because “it’s a bit different for the University and the audience. It’s upbeat and fun for audience members to buy into,” he said.

More information about Recycled Percussion, including video clips, is available at www.recycledpercussionband.com.
