Trashcanjo n. [trash kan jo] A banjo made out of a trashcan. Ideology based on maximum musical output from recycled minimum input. Coffee brewed in a trash can.

Trashcan Joe performs traditional American styles of music with instruments made from found objects like trash cans, washboards, and seashells. Their charismatic and highly energizing live shows thrill audiences of all ages. Music comes from within and Trashcan Joe brings this message alive by teaching kids that anyone can make music, and it can be done with just about any object…and a little creativity.

Soaring vocal harmonies and modern song writing set in a soundscape harkening to the early jazz era, Trashcan Joe has a unique sound with a broad appeal. The fact that the instruments are made from recycled and found objects is quickly lost to their stellar musicianship.

“Trashcan Joe is a marvel, a wonder that defies categorization in any sort of contemporary setting.”
Don Campbell, The OregoniansGive
