Toddler Calls The Shots On New Reality Show

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you know a 2 year-old musical prodigy who’s looking to be in a rock band, then this could be their ticket to the big time.

That’s because there’s a new reality show that is searching for pintsize musicians to be in a band with a 2 year- old drummer prodigy.

The show is currently called Finding Julian’s Band, in honor of the diaper-wearing drummer, Julian Pavone.

Producers are asking musicians under the age of 10 to audition and are especially interested in kids who can sing, play bass, guitar, piano, trumpet, violin or saxophone.

But while the kids have to pass muster with the producers, it’s Julian who has the final say, according to his dad, Bernadino.

As he puts it, “Julian doesn’t just play with anyone. If he doesn’t like what you’re playing, then he just sits there.”

For example, during one recent jam session, the stickmaster stopped playing when a 16 year-old guitar player tried to upstage him.

Says Pavone: “The guitar player was trying to shred, but just couldn’t keep up and Julian just stopped and said ‘Dad I just don’t like it.’”
