Canada’s most prolific guitarist/songwriter of our generation, randy Bachman, will be opening the third annual Luminato. It will be located in downtown Toronto’s Young & Dundas square on June 5th of this year.
Honestly, I’ve never been to any of these events but, this year will be much different!
The god-father of Canadian guitar, is really looking forward to initiate the opening of the Luminato Guitar festival lineup in the heart of Toronto. He told reports that musicians often wonder to themselves Why aren’t I playing that and said that this is one such event that he could not miss out on. He said it about Woodstock, but he won’t be saying it about this year’s Luminato event!
Because of the recession, it’s great to have a big opening free concert!
Also at this years celebration of everything guitar, we are going to be attempting to break a Guinness World record at this location as well! It will be called The Great Canadian Tune
Some of Toronto’s most talented, or so they think, and lucky residents will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for Largest Guitar Ensemble. The talented one’s I hope, will have a massive jam session playing ten of the greatest Canadian tunes ever simultaneously.
The current record was held in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany. There, 1,802 guitarists gathered to perform Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water.”
In the weeks leading up to the Festival, audiences will be asked to log on to luminato website to place their votes for The Great Canadian Tune. Got any in mind?
So listen up everybody, here is a BIG heads up on what to do on June 5th in Toronto, if your not that busy?! Hope to see ya there!
Keep on Jammin’
