Junkyard Symhony's Boppin' Beats Buggy
Junkyard Symphony created a new junk contraption called the 'Boppin Beats Buggy'. The buggy is great for roving around the neighbourhood drumming
up community spirit, and upon request, the performers and the buggy can make a stop for a 30 min show at the end of someone's driveway. On Nov 22 Junkyard Jonny and Compost Chris toured 4 locations in Kanata performing very successful shows. The neighbours
brought out their pots and pans and buckets and happily jammed along.

JYS at Trafalgar School for Girls
Junkyard Jonny spent two weeks in the music room at Trafalgar School for Girls in Montreal teaching the girls all about rhythm. In accordation with the
pandemic safety regulations everyone wore masks. Each student had their own sticks and there were rhythm games that functioned in accordance with social distancing. All in all it was
a fun two weeks.

Junkyard Symphony's at the Drive In
(Left image) Junkyard Jonny and Seismic Sacha played their first Drive-in show at Wesley Clover Parks. The rain came down
in buckets before the show, and the stage was slippery and 12 feet up in the air, but none the less, Jonny and Sacha put on a great show.
(Right image) Playing to cars can be a bit challenging because the only reaction they can give you is a honk of a flash of the lights, but despite
their limitations, the cars seemed to really enjoy the Junkyard Symphony show. There was a lot of honking!

Junkyard Symphony at OWL Rafting
(Left image) Junkyard Jonny does a fantastic solo for the excited crowds at OWL Rafting, where Junkyard Symphony is performing shows
for every weekend during the summer months OWL stands for Ottawa Whitewater Leaders.
(Right image) The show Junkyard Symphony has been performing at OWL Rafting is Launch Ball, a game in which a ball is launched into a plinko box to determine the number of spaces
the player will move along a gameboard. The player will then be asked a trivia questions about OWL Rafting or the Ottawa River. If they get the question right, marbles are put down
the Marble Mansion to give the player bonus points. If the player passes Go, Jonny does a fabulous trick. It's a really fun game!
