Recycled Percussion is a wild mix of unorthodox talent, extreme athleticism, musical precision and insane antics, performed on recycled instruments, and on anything you can think of like hubcaps, garbage cans, power tools, and even each other. To quote MTV, they are: “Entertainment at its highest level.” The Las Vegas Journal aptly anointed Recycled Percussion: “Flat out bad-assed.”
Discovered in 2009 by NBC’s popular family show America’s Got Talent, Recycled Percussion became the then-highest placed non-singing act to ever compete in the series’ history, ultimately finishing third. Since then, they’ve been unstoppable, playing over 4,500 shows and over 500 corporate events in over 15 countries. They have done guest appearances on The Carson Daly Show, The Today Show, China’s Got Talent and the Latin Grammy Awards, were featured on the cover of USA Today and voted “National Act of the Year” a record-breaking six times.
Recycled Percussion promises to be packed full of surprises, with favorite routines from the past and lots of new craziness, which will continue to rev up the audience with their unique brand of comedy, rhythm and mayhem. They guarantee an incredible turbo-charged performance – so the Mahaffey audience should plan to be a part of their continued journey from a bucket-banging high school act to the entertainment capital of the world, Las Vegas – and beyond.
