We Say Ottawa, You Say Senators!
Junkyard Symphony's Drum Corps had their first ever show at the Scotiabank Place last night for the Sens game against
Florida. The Corps performed a 90 second piece during a commercial break, playing on junk bottle cap snares,
garbage cans, recycle bins, shakers, a gong and a didjeridu.

Glowing in the Cove
Who would have thought that water jugs could glow. They glow bright blue under the rays of a black light, which inspired Junkyard Symphony to outfit
their equipment with glow tape as they performed for thousands of people at Vancouver's Fright Nights at the PNE from Oct 22 to Halloween. Though the air was chill, the show was hot.

Fishing some Carp
Junkyard Symphony performed at the Carp Fair to thousands of people over the weekend. Full of animals,
entertainment, rides and fair food, and cowboy hats, the fair is always a good time.

An Ironhorse is a Train
Junkyard Symphony ended up in St. Thomas Ontario for the
Ironhorse Festival. While the last show poured down buckets, festival goers still stopped to watch Junkyard Jonny do his tricks in the rain,
while Landfill Lil drummed comfortably underneath the stage roof. The last two shows were canceld but the organizers were happy with the shows
that Junkyard Symphony had performed the day before on the main stage.

Long Trip to Kincolith
Not many Canadians know where Kincolith is, but it is in Canada, on the edge of Canada that is. Take a flight over the mountains from Vancouver into Terrace,
grazing the mountain tops as you land, then take a long winding three hour drive on a road with eagles, black bears and bridges wide enough for only one vehicle,
and that's where you'll find Kincolith, at the top of British Columbia next to Alaska. At what is there? Not a whole lot...except for CRABFEST! Yeah it was strange
to set up a humungous stage with bands from all over North America for a little tiny town of population 400, but CRABFEST was a lot of fun, with great bands such as
Red Nation and Honeymoon Suite, and everyone was very nice and hospitable.

Success at Sussex
24 Sussex Drive that is! And what a funny site it was to see Junkyard Symphony and Junkmobile drive into 24 Sussex Drive to unload all their junk and place it
beside the fancy buffets and decorations of the Harper's Garden Party. It was a little odd, but great all at the same time. We all know that even though Junkyard
Symphony plays on junk, they are truly one of the classiest acts around, and that's just what the Prime Minister thought too. "All the guests, not just the kids,
loved the show," he politley said to Junkyard Jonny and Landfill Lill. His daughter Rachel especially loved being the "Cheer" girl too!
