In my last article about the Uher Brothers it was mentioned that Tyler Uher was one of 20 finalists that competed last year in a Junior Idol Contest for a well known local theater company.  I just received the announcement that Tyler was again chosen as one of the 20 finalists to compete in this year’s live competition!

This year’s Rialto Idol Junior singing competition is scheduled for Saturday, November 26th at the Rialto Square Theater.  The competition run by the Rialto Square Theater in Joliet, Illinois, is also sponsored in part by STAR 96.7 Radio.

The live competition for ages 5 to 15 years old will be held from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rialto Square Theater.  They also have an adult Idol competition for ages 16 and over that will be held later that evening.

If you are in the Chicago area and would like to attend this competition you can obtain tickets by visiting, “RIALTO IDOL JR. 2011”.

The competition has also added something new this year – “text to vote” – The audience members will be able to text their vote of their favorite contestant.  Each contestant will be singing one song.  In the event of a tie, a sing off will determine the winner with each contestant singing an alternate song.




This year’s competition takes place during the ComEd Festival of Trees week of activities that runs November 21 through 27 at the Rialto Square Theater.  It’s a weeklong extravaganza that features more than 60 trees and wreaths on display, decorated by the area’s premium designers and sponsored by local businesses and organizations.  Guests will have the opportunity to view these displays as well as place bids to have one of the fully decorated trees delivered to their homes in time for the holidays.

We wish you all the best in this contest Tyler! 

Show them what you have and that’s plenty of talent!



“Uher Brothers” Tremendous Triplet Teen Trio

Uher Brothers


Every now and then I stumble upon a group of youngsters that just seem to capture my attention.  It’s either something in their singing talent, their presentation or performances, or just the simple fact that they possess charisma that makes me take a second look.

When I search for talent in youngsters I am not always looking for the best, most polished, most skilled or choreographed act.  Sometimes I’m searching for that hidden factor that you just can’t describe with words.  Maybe it’s that same X FACTOR that Simon Cowell is searching for.

Well, whatever you want to call “IT”’, these boys have “IT”!

Uher Brothers features 15 year old triplet brothers – Tyler, Scott, and Dustin.  The boys will be entering a new chapter in their lives this fall as they enter high school.  They have participated in the school choir since third grade and did their first performance together as a group at the Spring Choral concert at school by singing Lean On Me acappella.

 Even though they were just discovering their ability to sing together, they demonstrated a certain charm that just plain made you feel good.  In fact this first clip really made me smile at the end due to their comedic charm and special natural flare.  I said to myself, I have to see more!

As I went a little further I found another performance they did in school.  I was really quite amazed with their backup harmony in this second clip.  However, it was their showmanship that outweighed everything else. Each of their personalities shined through as they proudly performed their special choreographed number.  But it was the song they chose that really surprised me, being it was a song written fourteen years before they were even born.  Billy Joel’s Longest Time.

Since that first performance things have progressed rapidly for the boys. They captured first place in the duo/trio category at the Illinois Music Association’s statewide competition in May of both 2010 and 2011.  Additionally, Tyler was awarded the first place trophy for his solo performances in the same competition for both years.
