The Junkmobile all broken.                  Junkyard Symphony's Super Snow Show

Jan 30, 2010
Horrible Accident
(Left image) Sadly as Junkyard Jonny was returing home to his family one evening, his car slid on some black ice and hit a tree. Jonny broke his ankle and his wrist and the car was damaged beyond repair. Most importantly Jonny is alive and Recycle Ross is happy to help out and take over the shows until he is better. We expect Jonny to return to performing in April.

However we have created a Super Snow Stage instead, so come by and see our Super Snow Show on Sat Jan 30 at 1pm, 78 Tamblyn Crescent in Kanata.

Crabfest
(Right image) Junkyard Jonny and Speedy Spence had a great time in Kincolith for their annual Crabfest. Kincolith is on the border of Alaska and BC and the scenery is just beautiful. JYS got to open for Wide Mouth Mason and Kim Mitchell. Spence did a wicked drum solo and joined the sound guys to create an impromptu band when one of the artists was late.

Death Defying Dare of Doom                  Dickison Day

June 14, 2009
WESTfest
(Left image) Junkyard Jonny and Landfill Lil performed three awesome Super Street Shows at WESTfest in Westboro, a quaint community in the west of Ottawa. Junkyard Jonny completed a new Death Defiying Dare of Doom. This time he balanced on the Balancing Bongo Board atop the Tube Tower of Terror while juggling Plungers of Peril. Jonny has in mind to eventually juggle the jugs up there but he has to get used to the plungers first.

The Rainbow Bistro was jammed to capacity with happy fans, many of which were Bell High Alumni, Jonny's High school. Headliners Downstone Rhythm also did a great job. Papa Shango consists of Alanna George, Joe Nesrallah, Ilan Kolet, Dave Matsukubo, Andrew Matsukubo, Chris Lengyel, and of course Jonny Olsen on drums.

Hands up!
(Right image) Students at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School in Russell hold up their hands in preperation to save the world...and to do the the Macarena. Under the leadership of eco-science teacher Amanada Poitras, the St. Thomas Aquinas Green Team was able to use Junkyard Symphony's show to help raise enough funds to buy 5 large benches for an outdoor classroom, and a sugar maple tree! It was a great idea! Have a show, raise some money...help the environment!

Jonny catches the cheer box                  Junkyard Symphony in Owen Sound

April 22, 2009
Earth Week!
(Left image) It was a busy week for Jonny and Tony as they performed seven shows and four workshops in just five days. Students at Central Public School learned about the “rhythm of recycling” as Junkyard Symphony entertained a packed gymnasium to celebrate Earth Day. Emily Vallieres, 11, said the act showed her the many fun uses for diverted materials that could otherwise end up in a landfill. “I’m getting it,” she said. “Recycling is helpful to our earth and we should do it every day.”

Please visit the Children's Aid website. The auditorium has greats seats, and not surprisingly...great sound!

Ten Foot Teatering Tube Tower of Terror                  Recycle Ross

Tower of Terror!
(Left image) It's actually the Ten Foot Teatering Tube Tower of Terror to be more specific and Jonny successfully juggled three water jugs on top of it at the Dorset Snowball Winter Carnival to the pleasure of an overjoyed audience. Junkyard Symphony had been performing at the Dorset Snoball Winter Carnival for the past five years; perhaps its because everyone has so much fun. The festival features snowmobile races over open water which is always an exciting time. Dorset can be found on the western edge of Algonquin Park right in the heart of cottage country. www.dorsetsnowball.com

Balls of Fun
(Right image) Junkyard Symphony's Recycle Ross performs with his crystal ball at the Qualicum Community Day in the city of Ottawa. Not only did he dazzle and warm the winter chilled crowd but as he thoughtfully gazed into his crystal ball, he predicted a great summer season full of lots of fun for the city of Ottawa and of course all the clan of Junkyard Symphony. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Ross!

Winter Wonderland
(Left image) Junkyard Symphony's Winter Wonderland opened to the neighborhood of Katimivik for the first weekend of February. Built by Junkyard Jonny using snow and ice, the castle was a beautiful sight and was well received by the children of the Kanata neighborhood who had a ball sliding down the slide, playing in the two towers and running up and down the stairs.

Proctor and Gamble
(Right image) Junkyard Symphony's Junkyard Jonny and Landil Lil enjoyed a superb show at the Empire Theatre in Belleville for Proctor and Gamble's children's Christmas party. Proctor and Gamble own the Cheer detergent company so they were quite pleased to learn that one of Junkyard Symphony's main prop is a Cheer detergent box.

Nanjing Euro-Americas Clown Festival
(Left image) Junkyard Symphony's Junkyard Jonny and Trashcan Tony enjoyed a week on the other side of the planet teaching the Chinese what the word "cheer" means and havinga ball with 47 other performers from Europe, the United States and Canada. Performing on the main stage in front of 2000 people twice a day was quite a challenge, but they succeeded in capturing the audience's love none the less.

Sanderson Centre
(Right image) Junkyard Symphony's Junkyard Jonny and Speedy Spence performed a small southern Ontario tour starting off at Ridley College in St. Catherines, Mohawk College in Hamilton and then finishing the tour at the prestigious Sanderson Centre in Brantford. The Centre was built in 1919 as a Vaudeville theatre, was transformed into a cinema, then eventually became a music theatre. It is perhaps one of the most extravagant places that Junkyard Symphony has ever played. Visit sandersoncentre.ca

Brockton Buskerfest                  Potatofest

Brockton Buskerfest
(Left image) The town of Walkerton in the Region of Brockton had it's first busker festival this year, however, unlike traditional busker festivals where the buskers ask for money at the end of the show, this busker festival was paid for by the town as a gift to the community. The day was hot but so were the shows. JYS also played at the Dirt Pigs softball tournament the next day.
