Remember the Taubl Family, those seven talented kids and two talented parents who were stars a few years ago on “America’s Got Talent?”
Well the four brothers, James, Jack, Jeremiah and Sam Taubl, proved they still have it winning the WDRC “Connecticut’s Got Talent Show” at Zendri’s Stillwood Inn in Meriden on Wednesday night.
Calling themselves “The Asberry Boys,” the four siblings performed a Justin Timberlake tune (accompanying themselves with violins and guitars) wowing judges, Broadway star Billy Johnstone, recording star Jeff Pitchell and the far-less-talented Java.
And what did the star-worthy foursome win?
A gig on Fox Ct next month and an even bigger gig in August, opening for “Chicago” at the Toyota Presents Oakdale Theatre.
“This is great, just great,” said Jeremiah Taubl about the opportunities for the four who are all interested in pursuing a professional singing career.
The talent show was the brainchild of WDRC personalities Mary Jones and Brad Davis and featured nine acts chosen from hundreds of video submissions.
Well she too is an accomplished songstress and musician, and these days, sporting a new look that is a far cry from the conservative, buttoned-up professional from days gone by.
Second runner-up for the evening was Wint Fenderson (definitely best name of the night!) and first runner-up Crissy Grazio.
You learn something new everyday!
