Recycled Percussion

Let the kids stay up late for this one. They’ll be thanking you for weeks. It’s one of the coolest concerts, shows, junk yards, sensory experiences you and they will experience. You may recognize their name as the winners of the 2009 America’s Got Talent show. And while they’ve been headlining their own Vegas show for years now, it’s still hard for anyone to really describe this concert, so here’s some words: exhilarating, sticks, neon, ladders, monkeys, comedy, sinks, electrifying, break dancing, hilarious, interactive, fun.  Check out the video…you’ll get the idea.
