(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!

(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!

(Left image) Recycle Roy gets ready to launch the ball. Groovy Greg (left) and Valiant Vion eagerly await their turns. Throughout the summer, Junkyard Symphony organised a free Launch Ball League for local dad's to provide emotional support and a postive fun, safe environment during difficult times. Most Thursdays the Launch Ball League gathered on Jonny's front lawn in Kanata, and had a ball! The game involves launching a ball into a plinko game, moving a cup around a playing board and answering various trivia questions.

(Right image) Dumpster Don was the winner of this week's game. The winner gets to choose the trivia category for the next week. Most of the trivia involves Canadian content such as questions about William Shatner and the Tragically Hip. Vivacious Vito (right) who is new to the neighborhood, really enjoyed the game despite comeing in last.

The Jonny Olsen Show at Rockland Public School.

March 3, 2020
The Jonny O Show at Rockland Public School
Junkyard Symphony produces various other shows such as the Jonny O Show, which was featured in this year's Blues in the Schools. This is a picture of Jonny's set up at Rockland Public School. The show style and rhythmic content is similar to a Junkyard Symphony show, but the set up is a traditional drum set rather than junk. The 60 min Jonny O Show is less expensive than a 60 min Junkyard Symphony show, which is in part why it was created. Junkyard Symphony's main goal is to provide quality entertainment to the community at reasonable prices, so if you cannot afford a Junkyard Symphony show, perhaps The Jonny O Show is in your budget.

(Right image) The set up for the Funky Fiesta show is quite extensive despite the fact that it is a solo show. It's well worth the price.
