Five Star Shops to Hold Guiness Record Attempt for Charity
Source: Drum! Magazine
The sound of drums will rumble across North America on Sunday, November 2, as ten Five-Star member drum shops launch the Big Beat. This effort will bring together the largest gathering of drummers ever assembled, celebrate the joy of drumming, and raise money for worthwhile causes. Not only will each location try to break the Guinness world record for the most drummers playing the same beat at one time (previously set by Donn Bennett Drum Studio, with 533 participating players), but the participants will also try to set a record for drummers in all cities playing simultaneously.
Big Beat events will benefit the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation and in some cities, the addition of a local charity as well.
Of the shops participating, Memphis’ own Memphis Drum Shop will be banging away as well!
