Bash the Trash, a family band that builds, performs and educates with musical instruments made from recycled and reused materials, is performing an outdoor concert at 7 p.m. July 24 at the Center for Science Teaching & Learning at the Tanglewood Preserve, 1450 Tanglewood Rd., Rockville Centre. (If it rains, the concert will be under a tent.)

The group has made brass, woodwind, string and percussion instruments from such items as empty plastic water jugs, orange traffic cones and tire rims. Their songs range from rock to jazz to classical, and from DJ'ing and spinning to storytelling. Song titles include "Ice Cream Tragedy," "Lullaby of Heart's Desire" and "Bash Trash Jump."

The cost for the concert is $9 per adult and $6 per child ages 12 and younger. For more information, call 516-764-0045 or visit
