The strains of Styx’s “Renegade” wash over a darkened auditorium. A complicated rhythm fires up, subtly at first, then grows to a thunderous roll. But even as the curtain rises, it isn’t clear where the sound is coming from—until the audience looks up. Hanging upside down, four tattooed young men create interwoven rhythms on homemade drums made from plastic barrels and duct tape. Recycled Percussion’s stage show has begun.
Since coming in third place on America’s Got Talent in 2010, Recycled Percussion continues to keep their sound as fresh as when founder Justin Spencer formed the group as a New Hampshire high-schooler. And when the quartet says “recycled,” they mean it: banging on such reimagined instruments as the washing machine, the stepladder, the chainsaw, and the human body, the band reinterprets heavy metal, punk, pop, and hip-hop hits into a style they simply call “junk rock.”
Producer and V Theater owner David Saxe was born into Vegas show business, raised by a mother who danced at Les Folies Bergere and a father who led the band for the Rat Pack. The Saxe family’s entertainment legacy continues with the V Theater. The venue runs its 12 concurrent shows in a 60,000-square-foot space divided into four showrooms on multiple floors, each retaining an intimate feeling with seating that brings the audience closer to performers. The V Theater’s current shows range from a seven-act, family-friendly Ultimate Variety Show to Marc Savard’s Comedy Hypnosis, where Savard persuades audience members to hilariously dance, act like animals, and ghostwrite his autobiography.
