All That! to be part of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Finding fame on NBC's America's Got Talent, cloggers "All That!" perform right here in Myrtle Beach.

The group is stepping off the Carolina Opry Stage and onto televisions nationwide to perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Group member Mike Curtis says anyone can audition, but this group got involved in the parade in a non-traditional way.

"We got a phone call from them one day saying they would like us to audition, so I just sent them our promo video and after getting our promo video they offered us a spot in the parade and a one minute exclusive television performance," he says.

This is one of many national appearances for the guys; they were featured on America's Got Talent twice.

They were awarded first runner up in the debut season of the show in 2006 and returned for the seventh season finishing in the top 10.

Even after nearly 15 years of dancing together, the guys told me they don't know if they'll ever be prepared for a crowd this big, but they're preparing to do their best.

"We've got a new trick that we're pulling out with all 8 of us, you know it's the Macy's Parade, there's going to be 45 million people watching so you have to do something special," says Curtis.

The group hopes this national attention will bring more people to Myrtle Beach.

"I don't think there's any better way then being on NBC and 45 million people watching to help bring people to see us here."

You can catch a live performance at the Carolina Opry. The group performs six nights and three afternoons a week.

After the parade the group will continue to finish the 75 shows in November and December and will be featured after the Opry's January break, for a new set of shows.

"I think it will be great for the Carolina Opry, which is, that's our bread and butter that's where we want to be that's where we love to be most of all. Ideally, we never want to leave here," says Curtis.
