We've had fabulous news: Ian Gillan has offered to break
his US tour to come and sing
Smoke on the Water for GOTB!
September 6th, 2014
MUSIC STARTS AT 11am, RECORD ATTEMPTS START AT 4pm
Last year 2,267 guitarists set the record for Britain's Biggest Band. This year we're going to do it all again, over two days and headlining THE Ian Gillan who has offered to break Deep Purple's US tour to come and sing Smoke on the Water for us!
So this year, the world record might be broken!
We'll be playing 'Rave On', GOTB's anthem, but for all you guitarists who want to do more, we've added 'Smoke on the Water' and Status Quo's 'Rocking All Over The World'.
This year we're also introducing GOTB ADVANCED. That set list comprises:
500 Miles (Proclaimers) - in the key of E
Valerie (Zutons) - in E
Sharp Dressed Man (ZZ Top) - in C
Sweet Home Alabama (Lynryd Skynryd) - in D
GOTB2 will be a much bigger event. For starters we're teaming up with Mark Hix's Food Rocks food festival. Mark's putting together a band of chefs who will perform as the 'Eatles'. There will also be more food stalls and buskers all over the town.
So, if you're one of the original 2,267 band members please tune up and come and play again. And if you missed the first gig, please sign up and join us in the band. We can promise you an unforgettable weekend - and it's all FREE!
WE ALSO WELCOME ALL OF YOU WHO PLAY UKULELES, BANJOS, MANDOLINS...
