+ Homemade instruments create unique image for The Garbage Men
Recycling is not only good for the environment but, apparently, also for making music. The Garbage Men jumped on the recycling bandwagon and have now found themselves on the verge of stardom. The five freshmen who make up the band attend Pine View School and made their instruments out of cereal boxes, old toys, glass bottles and other recyclables.
Band members Harrison Paparatto, Austin Seigel, Ollie Gray, Jack Berry and Evan Tucker are headed this weekend to Atlanta to try out for “America's Got Talent.” This past Saturday, the group played at the Sarasota Farmers Market and asked for donations to help pay for gas for the trip. Their goal is to make it through at least one round of judging.
