Mayor Russ Wall and four Legislators kick off a Taylorsville talent show with a surprise band number this Fri., Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. at Taylorsville High School.
Senator Michael Waddoups, Senator Karen Mayne, Rep. Johnny Anderson, Rep. Wayne Harper and Mayor Wall will be sporting mullets and electric guitars as they open the evening singing, “Taking Care of Business.”
“We had to come up with our band name and decided on BTO - Bennion Taylorsville Overdrive,” said Wall. “We are thrilled to make our debut at ‘Taylorsville’s Got Talent.’ I just hope drummer, Waddoups, can keep up with me.”
The Taylorsville Arts Council is hosting the event and Arts Council Chair Susan Holman said 14 residents have turned in applications. They range in age from 12-70. Judges will award an adult winner a $100 cash prize and a junior winner a $50 cash prize. Winners will also be giving on-stage performances at Taylorsville Dayzz next summer.
Tickets to the performances will be sold at the door for $5 per person, $25 per family of 6, and $40 per group of 10.
