They received great reviews from our favorite four judges– Mel B, Heidi, Howard, and Howie– and hope to make it far this season on the show. The musicians hail from small Connecticut towns and are all college graduates who work full-time jobs as they play different gigs around the region. They’ll be featured tonight on Judgment Week.

Here’s what you need to know about the band.

Nick F., Nick A., and Ryan Zipp hosted a watching party at their house in Connecticut for their first appearance on America’s Got Talent. Within 30 seconds of performing, their social media pages were blowing up. Zipp told The Courant:

Our social media exploded. On the night of our show about 30 seconds into our performance, I started getting social-media notifications on my cellphone. I’ve never seen anything like it. For over an hour there were constant notifications. We were overwhelmed by the response.

The crew has 6,000 followers to date, but that’s sure to grow after their appearance tonight.

2. They’re Still Working Full-Time Jobs

Despite blowing up on social media, the guys have all maintained their full-time jobs back in Connecticut. They spend downtime boosting their social media in anticipation of their upcoming performances on AGT, but don’t mind the little extra attention people have given them at work.

Everyone’s pretty proud that someone locally from Connecticut is making a wave out there.
