The second annual Make Music Day Alabama has been postponed until Aug. 22 due to rain.
Though the date has changed, musicians will still gather at 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,” Spicer’s Music said on their 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 of Spicer’s Music, said the new date may allow Auburn University students back in town for the fall semester to add to the number of registrants.
Make Music Day Alabama had 850 attendees last year, narrowly missing the Guinness record for the world’s largest band set by China with 953 members. Spicer’s Music has reported 1,400 registrants for this year’s event so far.
“We’re excited to announce that this year’s song will be Sister Hazel’s ‘All for You’,” Spicer said. “Even better news, Sister Hazel’s Ken Block and Drew Copeland are coming to perform with us!”
