Recycled Percussion’s History
Justin Spencer formed the band in 1995 for his high school talent show. His inspiration was street performers in the subways of New York, who were using buckets to create music.
Looking to get as creative as possible, he took that concept and harmoniously combined it with musical instruments. The result was a mix of rock and roll and New York-styled of street percussion.
In 1999,the USA Today featured Recycled Percussion on the cover. It meant a great deal to them and, in 2001, they started touring the country. They began performing over ten different shows per year.
Their music was receiving standing ovations at corporate events, NBA halftimes, NFL halftimes, and various colleges around the country.
They kept touring and pleasing audiences with their music for about ten years. Then, in 2009, everything changed for the best. Their participation at America’s Got Talent helped them achieve worldwide fame.
