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.

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.

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!

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.”

Tower of Terror!
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.

Balls of Fun
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!
