Idol Eyez has performed at various casinos, clubs, corporate events, festivals and weddings. Last spring, the band was also contacted by the producers of of the popular TV program America's Got Talent to offer a private audition for the band to be considered to perform on the show after they found the Idol Eyez website in a search engine looking for talent in Seattle. While Idol Eyez had to decline the offer due to prior commitments the weekend the producers were scheduled to be in Seattle, it was flattering to have that popular talent program seek out Idol Eyez.
