Vegas Juggling Group

A gathering of great juggling talent in Las Vegas...

In going thru some of my old files and images recently, I came across this one that was emailed to me from my juggling partner's brother, Joel Heidtman. I forget the details on the date or specific event where this powerhouse gathering of juggling talent occurred. From what I remember it was for some big corporate gig in Las Vegas where they all worked together. Perhaps someone reading this post will know the details and post them in the comments.
Top row, L to R: Dick Franco, Mike Godeau, Allan Howard, Joel Heidtman, Steve August and Ivan Pecel. Bottom row, L to R: Brian Earle, Jon Wee, Owen Morse (The Passing Zone) and Michael Marlin

Fast Track To Fame

A new Speed Channel based talent show is looking for novelty/variety acts. Above is a flyer that announces the dates and locations they will be taping. They are looking for acts with "down home attitude and heartland appeal". I spoke with one of the producers recently and it sounds like it might be a good opportunity to get your act exposed to a wide audience as The Speed Channel and NASCAR are quite popular. However, this is new show and therefore I cannot vouch for the quality of the production of how the acts will be presented. I am merely helping the producer out by getting the word out amongst some of the variety performer community. I did not get into discussing a lot of the details from the producer but I imagine that a lote of your questions will be answered by clicking on the title of this entry and going to the show's website. Good luck!

Gatto on The Ellen Show this Thursday 2/4

Anthony recently announced that he will be appearing on The Ellen Show this Thursday 2/4. This makes the 3rd or 4th juggler that has been on there in the last month or so. Nice that Ellen's producers are showing so much attention to jugglers and variety performers.
