As of this writing, we are still waiting to hear the results of the voting. Last week (on August 27th, 2010), we were featured on Live with Regis and Kelly via video as part of their Wild and Wacky Talent Contest.
It was just one of those “oh, why not?” moments that got us to send in our video. Our friend Steve Renfree told us about the contest and thought we would fit right in. We went to the video camera and shot the 30 second spot of us playing the William Tell Overture with Boomwhackers. We sent it off that night and got a call from Live with Regis and Kelly the very next day. They said that our video “caught their eye” and they needed us to sign a release form in order for the video to be played on the show. There was no guarantee that it would air. They said that they would let us know if the video was chosen.
Well, we didn’t get a call, so we figured it wasn’t to be.
But on last Friday, we got a call from Steve Renfree’s wife Tami Weiss. She congratulated us on our appearance. “What appearance?”, we said.
So what was supposed to be a relaxing Friday in the Summer became a marketing frenzy. We were on the phone, writing email, updating Facebook…all to get people to vote for us by midnight on Friday.
Now we are waiting. What are our chances of winning something? On the face of it, about 20%. There were 5 contestants. But, we think that perhaps we were slightly wilder and wackier than most of the others.
What will happen? Stay tuned……
Our category will probably be featured on the Wednesday, Sept 8th show. Tune in to see if we are crowned “Masters of Music”!
