The second annual Make Music Day Alabama has been postponed until August 22, 2017 due to rain. While the date has changed, the time and place are the same - 6 p.m. at the Gay Street Municipal Parking Lot in downtown Auburn.
“It appears weather will force us to postpone Make Music Alabama 2017,” was posted on Spicer’s Music Facebook page. “While the weather may have rained out our plans, it has not dampened our spirits. The show must go on! Join us on August 22 to break the Guinness Book of World Records for having the World's Largest Rock and Roll Band.”
Tim Spicer, owner and manager of Spicer’s Music, said he is confident that the new date, August 22, will be a blessing in disguise. Auburn University students will be back in town for the fall semester, and could add to the already massive number of registrants.
Last year hundreds of music-loving participants showed up in hopes of beating the Guinness record for the world’s largest band, almost claiming the title. Coming close to beating the record set by China with 953 people rocking out together, Auburn’s first-ever Make Music Day saw an impressive 850 musical attendees. This year Spicer’s Music has reported 1,400 registrants so far.
“We’re excited to announce that this year’s song will be Sister Hazel’s ‘All for You’,” said Spicer. “Even better news, Sister Hazel’s Ken Block and Drew Copeland are coming to perform with us!”
Spicer’s Music invites everyone from professional musicians to amateurs to join them for the Make Music Day Alabama event on August 22. Registration is free and open to all musicians. Spicer's Music is proud to be hosting the state of Alabama's largest city-wide Make Music Day celebration, and they want you to be a part of it. Anyone interested can register at www.spicersmusic.com to be a part of the band.
