"Here we are, we get to play on the Las Vegas strip every day for fans and get to live our dream, but every time you drive home, you see someone on the side of the road that just looking for a place to stay or some shelter, and it really hits home," leader of the group Justin Spencer said.

Recycled Percussion performs at The Quad. They're known for making music using everything from trash cans to power tools.
