Dynamic Duo Combine Rhythm and Comedy for Unforgettable Performance 

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – In conjunction with Earth Week, sponsored by the Office of Community Engagement, the Gardner-Webb University Dimensions Program will feature the progressive percussion duo, Bucket Boys, on Tuesday, April 16 at 9:25 a.m. in Stewart Hall of the Tucker Student Center.

The Bucket Boys combine high-energy rhythm and surprisingly funny comedy to deliver an interactive performance of sight, sound and laughter. They make their music using buckets, bin lids, pots and pans and street signs to bang out thunderous grooves.

The pair has toured extensively including performances in Times Square, Pro/Olympic Beach Volleyball Tours, universities and corporate events. They’ve also been seen on “America’s Got Talent” and have inspired students in schools all over the United States. 

“They were with us two years ago, and students continued to talk about the dynamic duo’s performance weeks later,” said Dr. Tracy Jessup, vice president of Christian Life and Services and senior minister at Gardner-Webb University. “We’re glad to have the opportunity to bring them back to Gardner-Webb.”

Gardner-Webb University’s Dimensions programs are free and open to the public. The goal of Dimensions is to enhance the spiritual, intellectual and cultural life at the University and also to promote a sense of community. Dimensions programs are held each Tuesday at 9:25 a.m. in the Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center. More information is available at 704-406-4277.
