Announcing The Day of 1,000 Musicians

You’re probably thinking, “Gee, it’s been a while since I made any sort of music history.” Good news! Here’s a new opportunity.

Saturday, July 21, has been set as The Day of a 1,000 Musicians. The goal is to gather 250 vocalists, 250 guitarists, 250 bass players and 250 drummers in one place to create the largest Canadian rock show of all time–well, at least in terms of the number of musicians.

Think of this as a Canadian version of Cesena, Italy’s Rockin’ 1000 that was organized to catch the attention of the Foo Fighters a few years back.

Everyone will run through six songs. Admission and participation are free, although donations will be appreciated.
