GOFFSTOWN — The junk rock band Recycled Percussion is launching their third season of “Chaos and Kindness” with new television shows every week for the next year.
Justin Spencer says the “Jackass meets Make A Wish” style show has brought them all over the world as they try to better the lives of people and improve communities.
“We’ve filmed all over the world in 30 countries and every state in America,” Spencer said. “Every episode we learn something more and we find better ways to tell stories.”
Spencer originally formed the band in Goffstown for a high school talent show. They began taking off when the group was featured on the cover of USA Today in 1999 and began touring the country in 2001.
Recycled Percussion competed on “America’s Got Talent” and finished in third place during season four. That eventually led to their own ongoing show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Now 42-years-old, Spencer says they launched “Chaos and Kindness” in 2017 as a way to give back in an entertaining way for television viewers.
“There’s a lot of stories that have made a difference,” Spencer said.
Recycled Percussion will continue filming as they play in New Hampshire this summer. They have shows coming up at the Claremont Opera House on June 22, The Flying Monkey in Plymouth on June 29, Peterborough Town House June 30 and at Veterans Park in Manchester on July 20.
According to the band’s Facebook page, their biggest summer event of the year will take place in Manchester.
They are calling out to dance companies, performers and school marching bands to perform with them.
Some of the stories that will be featured on this upcoming season of “Chaos and Kindness” include a family in Oklahoma that got a new mobile home and a group of homeless teens in Oregon they took shopping, according to Spencer.
“Chaos and Kindness” will air on WMUR-TV Saturdays at 7 p.m. starting this weekend.
