About Junkyard Symphony
            Junkyard Symphony strives to promote environmental health and awareness through educational and extraordinary entertainment by reusing 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. In the show, the performers are the conductors while the audience is the symphony so be prepared for a radical ride of rapid rhythms, awesome antics, clownish comedy, terrific tricks, magnificent magic, tons of talent, and plenty of participation!
            Junkyard Symphony originated in Ottawa, Canada in 1992. Junkyard Symphony is an eco-entertainment company (eco standing for ecological and economical), that reuses junk to service all kinds of events for all ages. What do they do with all this junk? They do many things with junk but are best known for their Super Shows . They also teach Wonderful Workshops. They offer Radical Roving characters. They create Groovy Games by reusing junk materials and they also run a School of Drums and Percussion. On top of all that they have created several CD's using junk for instruments, and are presently working on a children's novel with a junk theme.
            Their family style shows are perfect for community, schools, festivals and corporate events. They are suited to all ages and are as entertaining as they are educational. The shows are generally performed as a duo, but solo, trio or quartet shows are also available.
           There are four leaders, Junkyard Jonny, Junkyard Joe, Recycle Ross and Recycle Rylan, so several shows can occur at the same time. There are also various show versions and show lengths, to cater to the diferent themes and needs of the client.
           Junkyard Symphony has performed thousands of shows over the years. They have also peformed in many countries around the globe such as Singapore, China, Britain, France, Macedonia, Croatia, U.S.A., and of course Canada. They have performed for important people such as the Prime Minister of Canada, the President of Singapore, The Governor of Jiangsu Province in China, and music celebrities such as the Tragically Hip, Sheryl Crow and Ziggy Marley. They have won first place in the Canadian Association of Exhibitions National Youth Talent Contest and they have been featured on many television programs such as CBC's JONOVISION, CTV's Home Grown Cafe and CTV's Regional Contact. Most of all they have spread smiles and their message to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rock to millions of people around the world.

Junkyard Symphony has four leaders. The primary leader is Junkyard Jonny. He can perform all shows listed in the menu of shows, but Junkyard Joe, Recycle Ross and Recycle Rylan are also quilified to perform many of the shows. The circus skills and comedy vary a little with each leader but the theme, length and price of the show stay the same. This way with a diffferent leader you can have the same show year after year and have some variation to it.

Since Junkyard Symphony has four leaders, several shows can occur at the same time in different locations, so if Junkyard Jonny is busy, ask us if another leader is available.

            Why is Junkyard Symphony a great show for your event?
           It's full of rhythm, a language which everyone speaks and it has a great environmental message too. Recycling is always an important topic. Most of all we keep the audience involved all throughout the show. We are also extremely professional, very flexible, non offensive, yet totally entertaining and educational all at the same time. We can perform our show in English, French or Spanish, so have a look through our site and enjoy!

Junkyard Symphony's Giants of Junk
Junkyard Symphony's
Next Show at WESTFEST, June 3, 2016.
Junkyard Symphony's Giants of Junk is a gigantically fabulous show that will dazzle people, with big props, big tricks, big smiles and big laughs, and teach them all about the big benefits of recycling. But it's not just the humongous 12 foot junk robot, the super cool bucket stilts, the six foot unicycle, or the gigantic juggling jugs that makes Junkyard Symphony into giants of entertainment; what makes Junkyard Symphony gigantically amazing is how they take ordinary volunteers and turn them into giant SUPER STARS! The best part however, is that the robot is a marionette in which the volunteers can easily control, and that is a lot of BIG fun! This is a show you won't want to miss!
