High -nergy band Recycled Percussion started at a Goffstown High School talent show and from there they’ve seemed to go everywhere — from Las Vegas to your TV screen (currently, with the show Chaos & Kindness). Band founder Justin Spencer discusses the journey, their mission to spread kindness and their upcoming shows in Laconia and Manchester.
