The Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN – On Thursday, April 14th 2011, The Bucket Boys performed on the Public Square Stage at the Rivers and Spires Festival.

The Bucket Boys are a progressive percussion duo, combine high-energy rhythm and mediocre comedy to deliver an interactive performance of sight, sound and laughter. From witty creators Vince Romanelli and Mitch Martin, The Bucket Boys use a mobile collection of ordinary items to crash, bang, and pound out extraordinary cadences. Using trash cans, pots and pans, garbage barrels, and – of course – buckets, the duo creates hip-hop, funky dance beats.
