The world's biggest jam and recording session ...
Musicians and bands who have performed original music in Brisbane are being invited to participate in a Guinness World Record attempt for the longest recording session with multiple artists, possibly the world’s longest jam.
This is a unique opportunity for you to take your place in Brisbane’s original music family tree by joining this unique recorded event – the 150 Hour Jam. The Big Jam will feature local music heroes from the 1950s to today, along with regular house bands and sound recording teams to capture the event. Beginning bright and early on Monday August 31, musicians will tag-team for just over six days at the new QUT recording studio in Newstead, before being transported to the Botanic Gardens River Stage for the finale at 12pm, Sunday 6 September. The final musicians will jam with 150 young string players, local bands and Brisbane’s unleashed orchestra Deep Blue before ending on a massive 12 bar blues.
The finale is part of the QUT/BCC organised Come Celebrate concert at the River Stage, which is being headlined by The Cat Empire. The concert is part of Brisbane’s celebration of 150 years since the city was officially declared a municipality.
