Music Fest Rocks Towards World Record

TACOMA, Wash. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Music lovers in Tacoma, Washington, will be jammin’ toward a world record this weekend (Aug. 18-19) when the fourth Annual LouieFest strums into town.

The outdoor festival celebrates the area’s rich music history, and is the namesake of The Wailers classic hit tune, “Louie Louie,” which is the event’s theme song.

But there’s no need to turn up the radio, because “Louie Louie” will be heard far and wide.

On Sunday (Aug. 9) the music fest will feature more than 1,000 guitar players rockin’ out to an epic, live performance of the song in order to break the Guinness World Record for most guitars playing in unison.

And while the record sounds tough to beat, event organizer Kent Morrill believes it can be achieved, as long as musicians of all ages and skill levels unite.

Says Morrill: “If you can hold a guitar and carry a tune, you’re invited to join us. We’ll play for about 20 minutes or so, but it’ll be great!”

And if you can’t strum to the tune, you can always show support by groovin’ to the music.

Morrill adds, “I’m sure people will be dancing during the song. It’s hard to hear ‘Louie Louie’ and not wanna move!”
