Prices and Specifics

  • Using the buttons above to navigate, you will find the prices and specifics of Junkyard Symphony's 5 services: Super Shows, Wonderful Workshops, Radical Roving, Groovy Games, and a School of Drums and Percussion, all inspired by the reusing and recycling of old materials. At the bottom of this page there is a section on travel expenses and some information on price deals that Junkyard Symphony offers to clients who are booking more than one show.

  • Show Specifics

  • Junkyard Symphony's Super Shows involve lots of radical rhythms, terrific tricks, awesome acrobatics, crazy comedy, plenty of audience participation and endless excellent energy.

  • There is very little talking during shows; most of the communication is through body language and whistle instructions, so the shows can be understood anywhere in the world. The crowd is prompted to cheer by a young volunteer who holds up a cheer detergent box and this really gets the audience going.

  • The shows are very interactive as the audience takes part all throughout the performance by clapping to a beat, doing a drum roll on their laps, counting from one to five and somehow always missing the number four, and cheering when the cheer box is held up.

  • Themes such as rhythm and recycling are introduced illustrating how the two are related and are both extremely important to our everyday lives. Terms such as beat and tempo are covered along with dynamics and balance.

  • For holiday shows the performance can take on a theme with appropriate decorations, such as for Halloween and Christmas.

  • The shows can be performed as a solo, duo, trio or quartet.

  • There are several show length options; either 30 min, 40 min, 50 min or 1 hour. It just depends on how much the client has to spend. The 1 hour quartet is the best option.

  • Junkyard Symphony has their own sound system so the client is not required to provide anything other than chairs for adults and access to one power outlet if possible. Children can sit on the floor/ground. Pylons will be placed on the floor to indicate the middle isle and the front row. It is best to have the youngest children up front and the oldest children at the back. It is also better to have Junkyard Symphony set up along the shortest side of the performance space.

  • There is nothing offensive or dangerous in the shows. The performers demonstrate some difficult balancing tricks and feats of fitness but they are professionals and never do anything that they cannot easily do. If anything they encourage the children to be more than they can be.

  • The performers remind us that we are all young at heart and there is no harm in being silly. Sometimes we need to just have fun and enjoy life.

    Junkyard Symphony's Sillyness

  • The shows can be performed in English, French, and Spanish.

  • The shows are suitable for all ages. Many clients are impressed how children aged as young as 4 and 5 years have their attention fixed on the performers for the entire 50 minutes, or that adults find the show just as entertaining as the kids. Our shows are for everyone to enjoy, and that's the best kind of show there is.

  • There are 5 show categories. Small Space Shows, Large Space Shows, Workshops, Main Stage Shows, and Roving Shows.

  • There are 3 price categories, as we believe that our shows should be affordable to all.
    1.Community/Charity (Daycamps, Daycares, After School Programs, Hospitals, Chairty Groups, Fundraisers, Churches, Non-Profit Organisations and Community Groups with small one day events.)
    2.Schools (Primary, Middle, Secondary, College and University)
    3.Business/Festivals (Businesses, Festivals, Fairs, Theatres, Government)

  • JYS School of Drums and Percussion
    Junkyard Symphony's
    School of Drums and Percussion
    Next Session Starts Jan 2014 in Kanata.

    30 min one on one music classes can be too short, too stuffy, too boring and too expensive. Our one hour group class is cheaper, more fun, and much more productive as students are inspired and encouraged to progress faster by the other students. They will also have the benefit of learning from two teachers rather than just one. Junkyard Jonny, an experienced drummer, percussionist and entertainer, is joined by Marvelous Mark, an accomplished drummer and drum teacher, to create an inexpensive one hour fun filled session of music education, specifically focusing on rhythm and how it affects every aspect of our lives. Students will enjoy having a vibrant exciting atmosphere in which to learn, to make friends and most of all to have fun.

    Taxes
  • 13% HST will be added to the price of the show.

    Late Fee
  • Payment should be made on the day of performance by cheque or cash payable to Junkyard Symphony. Cheques may be mailed after the show but a $25 late fee will be added. Please mail cheques to 78 Tamblyn Cres, Ottawa, ON, K2L-3A4.

    Travel Fees
  • We charge 25 cents per km from Ottawa, so if your show is 200km away, it will be 400km there and back and will cost $100 for travel. Each show description (above) tells whether the show is based in Ottawa, Montreal or both. We use mapquest to calculate driving times. There will also be accomodations charges if we are required to stay overnight. Example: Travel costs from Ottawa to Kitchener, Onatrio would be $300 Gas (6 hours) and $112 hotel (average cost for one night, 2 persons) = $412 total travel costs.

    Minimum Service Charge for Distance Shows
  • If the show you desire costs less than the minimum service charge for your area (see chart below), you will have to pay the minium service charge plus travel expenses as well. Another alternative is to find other organisations in your area to partner with so that the total service charge between the organisations is at least the minimum service charge or greater. This will allow you to pay the regular price of the show, plus a discount of up to 10%. As well, all organiations can share the travel costs.
