Junk rock band and current Las Vegas Headliners, Recycled Percussion, will be traveling halfway around the world to perform on the October 10th finale of China’s Got Talent (Pictured above: Todd and Justin in Shanghai).
The finale will be broadcast live from Shanghai Stadium on Dragon TV for an estimated audience of 400 million viewers.
“We have always had a desire to perform in China, more so than any other place on earth. That dream and desire becomes a reality for us now” says band leader, Justin Spencer.
Recycled Percussion has enjoyed much success since placing 3rd in “America’s Got Talent,” including an exclusive contract performing at Studio 54 at the MGM Grand. 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. Recycled Percussion pushes the limits again with their revolutionary interactive concept featured in their Las Vegas show.
Spencer, who has been named the world’s fastest drummer, along with 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.
