In February of 2007 a world record attempt proved unsuccessful at the
department store Harrods in London. Where Harrods failed, however,
99.7 KYYS morning show hosts Max Floyd and Tanna will succeed.
On June 3, 2007, 2,000 guitarists of all ages and skill will gather
at Community America Ballpark in Kansas City for the largest ensemble
performance of the same song in history. Should the attempt succeed,
it will break a world record which has stood since 1994.
Representatives from Guinness will be on hand to verify the record
has been broken. Celebrity guitarists will also be participating in
the history making event.
The song of choice for the event is "Smoke on the Water", made famous
by the band DEEP PURPLE. "The first song everyone learns on guitar
is 'Smoke on the Water', so we thought this would be a good song to
try and break the record with," Max Floyd said.
Participants in the event have been, and may continue to sign up via
99.7's web site, www.kyys.com
. The event is completely free to anyone
wishing to attend and will begin at approximately 12:00 p.m.
"We're pretty confident we're going to break the record," Tanna
said. "We know our listeners are going to rise to the challenge or
else we wouldn't even attempt this."
"Always remember that you are absolutely unique, just like everyone else."
