Vikings Rule L.A.

The Contenders

As I FB’d earlier in the week, I enthusiastically watched members of the South Philly Vikings in their last Philadelphia rehearsal before they left for Los Angeles.  SPV is  in L.A. and rehearsing for their next appearance on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”  Captain Pete D’Amato says, “The competition is pretty wild. There’s some good stuff.”  What do the Vikings have planned?  I won’t give it away, but I will tell you that you’ve never seen the Vikings do what they are about to do.  With some energy and creativity, SPV will put on a new performance, which is a good move because the judges want to see new things from the contestants.  The brigade also will have more members performing than they had in New York.  The Vikes say thanks to Al Delbuono for working so quickly, so well, and so affordably, on the costuming.   Captain Pete says doing this competition is expensive, but they wanted to do it for the Mummers and now that they are in the top 48, out of thousands of contestants, SPV also really wants to win.  Co-choreographer Maria Lauer is proud of how the members have worked so hard, the hairstylists, electricians, desk workers, and others, now all dancers.  Maria says the “power and energy” of the Fancy Brigade’s performance is strong.  Watching the rehearsal, I agree.  So, in addition to the Phillies game, tune in “America’s Got Talent” this coming Tuesday night, July 27th, to cheer on the Vikings and to make sure you vote for them.  There will be a phone number given out at that time and I will also post it here.   Go SPV.  Burbank and Hollywood are yours.  Grab it.
