Chicago Boyz visit SCSU

in Events/Lifestyle/Reviews by

I was very excited to see the Chicago Boyz since I watched them on America’s Got Talent Season 8. We had something in common and I think that is why I really enjoyed the performance. It was really neat to see the transformation from when they were on America’s Got Talent until now. You can tell that they work hard each and every day training to become better performers.

The person who was announcing everything was amazing. He was very interactive and kept the audience engaged. He also had a sense of humor which is key to keeping an audience listening. Before the show started, he made a few announcements about safety and got the whole auditorium to laugh by stating “don’t try this at home or in your dorm.” I knew when he said that, it would be a great show. I just really enjoyed that after every act they did they would go to the end of the stage and either lift their hands up, or dance to engage the audience even further.

Each individual on stage had their own unique dance move or gesture that really tied in the whole performance. The music went well with everything. Despite it starting late and having a slow start, it was very entertaining. At first, I thought the opening video was random, but it was beneficial to see where they started and how they got to where they are. They are all very talented men! Patrick, aka Superman, has insane talent with flying over 12 people, clearing everyone, even the last person by at least an inch. The person that flew before Patrick cleared 11 people!

However, when they were doing things on the mat which involved going across the whole stage, it was frightening to watch Anthony practically run into the wall to stop himself from all the momentum that he gained during his act. The older gentleman, also the announcer and coach of the team, was dedicated throughout the performance. You could tell he was tired at times, but he still kept the same energy throughout the duration and did not let it affect him. The talent that all these young men have is absolutely amazing and I would love to see them again.

It would be really cool to see them back at home in our hometown, Chicago. It was kid friendly and it seemed like the family in front of me really enjoyed it. If people are looking for an engaging, nerve-wracking show to go see, I definitely recommend it as a family fun and kid friendly event. This event was definitely video worthy and people had the chance to volunteer and actually become part of the act. I think it would be extremely interesting to see one of their practices or to even see them create new acts. I hope to see them in the upcoming future and I cannot wait to see what they have in store next.
