Recycled Percussion Coming to Dakota State University

Recycled Percussion will appear at Dakota State University Wednesday, March 3. The doors will open at 7:30, with the show starting at 8:00pm at the Dakota Prairie Playhouse. Tickets are $2 for DSU students with their student IDS, $3 for DSU faculty and staff, and $5 for the general public. Tickets for kids under 12 are $3.

Recycled Percussion has emerged from underground live show sensation to one of the most powerful touring shows in the U.S. The band has single-handedly brought the terms "Power-Percussion" and "Junk Rock" into mainstream music circles with their acclaimed live show. The band placed 3rd on NBC’s America’s Got Talent 2009 television show.

The band features hard-rock drumming led by the world’s "fastest extreme drummer" Justin Spencer, and intoxicating hip-hop funk grooves spun by turntablist "DJ Pharaoh". Together they create music that is sophisticated and technical in construction, mesmerizing in execution, and a fist-pumping thrill to experience.

Recycled Percussion’s live performance is considered to be the peak of on-stage percussion extremity. Performing on everything from their signature "trash" kits, including plastic buckets, huge ladders, mortar casings and giant 50 gallon containers - the band of two drummers, electric guitar and a DJ keep the audience on their feet through 80 minutes of spark-emitting, masterfully played power tools, and a mind-blowing beatbox "vocal artillery" session, backed up by chest crushing, power-driven, sweat-drenched drumming.

The show is sponsored by SAB, Residence Life, Emry Hall, Higbie Hall, Richardson Hall, Zimmermann Hall, 8-Plexes, and the Gaming Club. The Student Senate will be sponsoring the first 100 DSU Students. If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact the DSU Activities Office at (605) 256-5146.
