Bounding Main's Got Talent, Too!
UPDATE: We had a wonderful time at the AGT
audition! We spent over four hours in front of
cameras performing dialog and generally being seen
for intro portions of the program. We had our
90 second audition and we will find out sometime
after March what the judge decided. Keep you
eye here or on the Official Bounding Main Facebook
Apparently Bounding Main's got talent. We're
still not really sure how this happened but on
Sunday, January 25, 2015, Bounding Main will be
auditioning for America's Got Talent!
While Dean always dreams big, the rest of us never
thought we'd get a call from an agent sourcing
talent for the Chicago AGT auditions. So, as we sit
here wondering how this happened to us, we thought
we'd share the details so you can share in the
wonder too ...
• Dean received an email from a casting agent out of
Los Angeles asking if we'd be interested in auditing
for America's Got Talent. If so, he'd like to
present our information to the producers of the show
and see if they us to audition.
• Dean brought the request to Bounding Main and
after several seconds of stunned silence, we
thought, Why not?
• So the casting agent shared our music and videos
with the produces of the show and the they said they
wanted to hear our music in person!
• The next thing we know we receive what are called
"Front-of-the-Line-Passes". This means we have a
confirmed audition date and get to bypass the lines
outside and move right to the audition area.
That's what we know so far. We'll be posting updates
to our Facebook page throughout the audition day so
stay tuned for behind the scenes news and reports on
our progress (such as it may be).
One last thing to share ... we expect nothing out of
the audition but an adventure and stories to share
with all of you. While we are honored to be in the
company of other performers who have gone before us
(some of whom we know), we don't actually think of
ourselves as a million-dollar act. Although, we
could imagine ourselves with a Las Vegas show ...
Wish us luck and stay tuned for updates on January
Maybe we'll get an endorsement
deal out of this. Nah.
