Parents, Students, and Educators in Ocean County, I just learned of an exciting opportunity.  A casting director in Philly is looking for a Marching Band to feature in a commercial!

The spot for Comcast/Xfinity would air on TV and play online and there's some payment involved (but I don't know how much.)  If you are connected to a talented marching band in Ocean or Monmouth County, please share this information and encourage them to submit their video to the casting company by Monday, June 18th.  All the specific requirements are below:

  • Searching for fourteen to eighteen advanced drumline drummers and horn players.
  • The group must be based within 2 hours of Philadelphia and have experience playing with each other.

IMPORTANT DATES: Talent must be available for...

It would be great to see a Jersey Shore marching band in the new commercial!   If you decide to go for it, please send me an e-mail after you've submitted everything to Wickline Casting.  Good luck!
