Lady Gaga Will Pay $100 A Day to Kid Musicians to Back Her on You Tube Awards Show


Lady Gaga is up to something. She’s looking for a bunch of real kid musicians who can play her songs on the YouTube Awards (November 3). She sent out a casting call today. Her fee? She’s offering $100 a day including rehearsals and day of show. Plus you can grill a steak off her costume. Right now kids all over the Tri State area are figuring out the chords to “Born this Way.” Casting company is called EJ Casting. I have no info on them.

[YOUNG MUSICIANS] aged 10– 18 years old, who are proficient at pop/rock to play live onstage.
While we definitely want to cover piano, bass, guitar, drums, we would love horns, strings and
anything very unique like French horn or xylophone. We are hoping you might be able to recommend
young musicians who would be right fit for this. The casting time frame is very tight, we are casting
this week, Wed 10/23, Thurs 10/24, Friday 10/25 in NYC with callbacks either Sat or Sun. Rehearsals
ALL week starting Mon 10/28. (Please note: We are open to Skype and video submissions if an in
person audition is impossible.) Lady Gaga fans a plus.
Please note: For audition, all young musicians must prepare a Lady Gaga song.
MUST HAVE IN NOTES: how long talent has played instrument, what instrument they play, level of
talent (beginner/intermediate/etc), and please send any links or videos
