Loretta LaRoche- Let's Stop Global Whining

Every day we are assaulted with messages of fear. Our lives are permeated with doing to the point where we are no longer being. Busyness and stress are part of our daily conversations. We need to stop whining, stop talking about what we can't control, and start having some fun! No one whose dead ever got a reprieve because they were too busy! Come and laugh at the absurdity that has become the "American Way" and discover that laughter is truly the best medicine.

Recycled Percussion

Justin Spencer formed Recycled Percussion in 1995 for a high school talent show. Justin was looking for a way to be as creative as possible and took the idea of playing buckets, which was introduced to him in the subways of New York City. Deciding to take the next step was Justin adding more and more instruments to the show and expanding on the New York style of street percussion. The band really started to take off in 1999 when they were featured on the cover of the USA TODAY.
