Bounding Main's Got Talent, Too!Official America's Got Talent Audition Site 2014-2015 Logo

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 Page!

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 25th!

Maybe we'll get an endorsement deal out of this. Nah.

Bounding Main at Skallywags-Bar At Ox-Bo Marine  — Juneau, WI— Saturday, June 27, 2015

It's going to be a pirate party!  OxBo & Skallywags are owned by the same people and occupy the same area right on Rock River/Lake Sinissippi outside of Juneau, WI and we've been invited to entertain for these fun-loving people.  We sincerely hope that the Bounding Mainiacs will show up in force and demonstrate for them how to party like pirates (particularly since Wisconsin has no festival of piracy to enjoy anymore).  We'll be putting on about four 30-45 minute sets starting at 2:00 PM. 

Let's make THIS the pirate event of 2015, dear Mainiacs!  Come on out in costume and let's have a grand old time with a host that appreciates Bounding Main and good times!  For those of you traveling from a distance there are a number of lovely motels and B&Bs in the area.  There are also beautiful nature destinations nearby where you can recover with grace on Sunday.
