MIDLAND, Mich. - The Great Lakes Loons are once again hoping to uncover some of the region’s most talented individuals on Saturday, February 9 from 9 a.m. to noon, in the sixth annual “Mid-Michigan’s Got Talent”. Top qualifiers in the event will be invited to showcase their skills during a Loons home game in the 2013 season.

The Loons are seeking talented vocalists and instrumentalists to perform the national anthem before home games, as well as other talented individuals possessing unique forms of entertainment. These alternative entertainers could include jugglers, magicians, caricature artists, one-man bands, turkey callers, weight-lifters and people with any other skill that could be considered entertaining.

“Every year, the Great Lakes Bay Region produces a very talented display of high-quality entertainment,” said Chris Mundhenk, Loons Vice President of Marketing and Entertainment. “Last year’s event uncovered many new performers for Dow Diamond and we hope the same will hold true with this year’s event.”

Along with Mundhenk, Assistant General Manager of Production and Entertainment Chris Lones and Promotions  Manager Matt Hoffman will serve as judges during the showcase of talents, which will take place in Dow Diamond’s Great Lakes Reserve presented by Chemical Bank.

National anthem singers must perform a capella. Because of time restraints, bands are asked to mail or drop off a demo tape, CD or DVD with full contact info to Matt Hoffman, c/o Dow Diamond, 825 E. Main St., Midland, MI 48640. Interested entertainers are encouraged to pre-register for the event, though walk-up auditions are also permissible. Anyone unable to participate in “Mid-Michigan’s Got Talent” may also send in a demo in lieu of attending the February 9 event.

The Great Lakes Loons are a seventh-year Single-A partner of the Los Angeles Dodgers. For tickets or general information about the team, visit or call 989-837-BALL.
