Anyways, one of my favorite groups I saw during the audition rounds is called ArcAttack.
From their website:
Creators of the original Singing Tesla Coils, the crew of ArcAttack uses their high tech wizardry to generate a truly 'electrifying' performance. Two custom engineered hand built Tesla Coils throw out electrical arcs up to twelve feet long, each one acting as an instrument with a sound reminiscent of the early days of the synthesizer. A robotic drum set accompanies the spectacle, it's high power LED's flashing bright colors with the stroke of each mechanically actuated stick, while ArcAttack's six members churn out rhythmic instrumental melodies. Live instruments meet drum loops and samples to produce rock, electronica and indie with a splash of punk and a dash of metal served with a side of pop. During the show, the MC engages both the crowd and the Tesla Coils by walking through ½ Million Volt sparks wearing the relatively thin layer of his chain mail Faraday suit. This high power performance is unique in it's elements and energy, being at the same time mesmerizing and energetically thrilling.For their audition round, they did the Imperial March from Star Wars and it looked REALLY COOL! For the round that aired this week, they did Iron Man which was just as neat.
I *really* hope these guys go all the way and win this season - their act is so different and unique from all the others and it's got the element of danger too as they are basically playing with electricity - they really have what it takes to headline a Vegas show. I know would I definitely pay to go see them if they're out there the next time we go to Vegas - the judges keep saying, TV doesn't do their act justice, which I would believe as it seems like it would be a great live experience!
