BUCKFIELD — Viewers of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” glimpsed a pair of local jugglers and musicians, Jason and Matthew Tardy, during Wednesday night’s show.

But the two were shown for only a brief moment on the program, whose top prize is $1 million and a gig in Las Vegas.
“That was us,” said Jason Tardy, of Buckfield. “But we can’t talk about it. Not yet.”

The brothers have been performing together for several years, having been mentored as teenagers by Buckfield’s own Michael Miclon, of the Oddfellow Theater. Under the name “Two: High Energy Juggling,” the pair have performed at the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll.

More than just talented jugglers, they are also musicians who have created CDs and perform lives under the name, “Audiobody.” Their music accompanied the world famous Diet Coke and Mentos experiment videos created by Fritz Grobe and Stephen Voltz.

It’s uncertain whether the Tardys made the show’s first round of cuts.
“We have stories to tell,” Tardy promised on Thursday.

As Audiobody, the brothers are scheduled to perform Saturday night at the Orion Performing Arts Center in Topsham. The show is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $6 in advance and $10 at the door. For more information on their performances, visit www.audiobody.com.
