Dear valued client: Because we are out doing shows almost every day, all Junkyard Symphony bookings and inquiries are done by email rather than by phone. We check our email every night so please send an email to both of these addresses. This way we can be certain to receive your request and reply promptly:
junkyardjonny@junkyardsymphony.com and junkyardsymphony@hotmail.com

If your matter is urgent you may call Jonny at 613-298-5865.
But please send an email too just in case we cannot get a hold of you by phone.

Note: Our shows and email correspondence are also available in French and Spanish.

Promotional Blurb

           Based in Ottawa, Canada, Junkyard Symphony performs an amazing junk percussion/comedy/circus show. Junkyard Symphony strives to promote environmental health and awareness through educational and extraordinary entertainment using old ordinary objects that would otherwise be sadly destined for the junkyard. But to Junkyard Symphony, however, these objects are terrific treasures that can be reused for an even greater purpose.... creating lots of big smiles! Be prepared for a radical ride of rapid rhythms, crazy comedy, awesome antics, tons of talent, and plenty of participation.
           Junkyard Symphony has been entertaining since the summer of 1992 , and has traveled from Halifax to Hong Kong spreading over a MILLION smiles, a TRILLION laughs, and their environmental message, to....
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rock!

Junkyard Symphony Schedule

  • Most of our events are private functions, listed in white. If you wish to attend one of these events let us know and we will ask permission for you.

  • Dates listed in green are public events which are open to anyone.

  • If there is no show listed for your date and time, we are most likely available. Junkyard Symphony has four show leaders, Junkyard Jonny, Junkyard Joe, Recycle Ross, and Recycle Rylan, thus several shows can occur at the same time in different locations. If Junkyard Jonny is busy, ask us if another leader is available.
