Niagara Falls want to set Guinness record for drumrolling on Canada Day
Published June 23, 2021 at 6:47 pm
The City of Niagara Falls is shooting for a Guinness World Record on Canada Day. And it’s guaranteed to be one of the loudest online attempts ever.
The attempted record? “Most People Performing a Drum Roll Online Simultaneously.”
“Our goal is to have 1000-plus individuals or groups participate via various channels, first-come-first-served. We’re looking for diverse dedicated drummers to partake in this challenge,” The City said in a news release.
“The Guinness World Records attempt will be broadcasted live across the participating Canadian cities and on social media platforms around the world.”
Sounds like participants will need a little practice first, though.
“But as we will need to drum for at least five minutes in order to set the record, we do need rehearsals prior to the event. And we anticipate tons of fun jamming with our drummers! Please participate in at least one of the practice sessions.”
The City set two dates for practice – June 26, 11 am to noon and June 27 from 5 to 6 pm. Participants will be given a link to the online practice session.
Since the Guinness folks are rigid in their standards, drummers must follow two criteria: 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Each participant must have a single drum. The drums used may be any commercially available drum. And the video frames of each participant must clearly show the individual, their drum and the drum roll action.
