What to Expect
From head to toe, Aurora Savage is Lady Gaga. On stage, she has the look, attitude, choreography and energy you would expect from a Lady Gaga performance. Offstage she loves to meet and talk with others while maintaining a calm and pleasant attitude.
Aurora is always on time, if not a little early. She is dedicated to her craft which drives her to maintain a professional and level-headed attitude.
An important note, Aurora is a lip-sync artist. All performances are mimed to a track of Lady Gaga's vocals.
Casey Durrough started his career as a drag artist/female impersonator, named Aurora Savage, in April of 2012 in Atlanta, GA. From the start, he was told by mentors, friends, and patrons how much he looked like Lady Gaga. He started regularly performing Lady Gaga and began learning choreography and styling himself after the star.
In 2013 Aurora Savage moved to Savannah, GA where he performed at Club One. It was there he met his partner, Tony Diaz, and in December of the same year, they moved to Huntsville, AL. Together they spend a lot of their free time choosing from Lady Gaga's wide array of looks and constructing some of the most iconic pieces such as music video and live performance looks, to props such as the Disco Stick and the Pyro/Spark Bra seen in The Monster Ball Tour and the 2009 Much Music Awards performance of LoveGame/Poker Face.
Currently, Aurora travels regularly throughout the Southeast in cities such as Knoxville, TN, Atlanta, GA, Panama City Beach, FL, as well as frequent travels to Texas and California.
2018 is set to be a major year of growth and opportunity for Aurora with new costumes, sets, and travels.
Additional Booking Notes
All sets are done with a track and the sound is a huge part of the field. For maximum impact, the sound system should be of decent quality with loud, clear speakers for the performer and audience. If lighting design is an option it can be greatly utilized. Aurora has video backdrops ready and available for select sets if a screen or projector system is available.
