Good Grief! Just 8 Days ’til Statesville’s 10-Day Music Marathon

We are ROCKIN’ & ROLLIN’ Statesville & Iredell County!  Just 8 days in the countdown until our Guinness World Record 10-Day Music Marathon starts and our committee is PUMPED!  We had a terrific meeting this afternoon with a live performance from Cindy Floyd…over 700 performers booked…we still have slots to fill…especially midnight to 8:00 a.m.  Remember, the music cannot stop so we need to fill in all the gaps.  Interested?  Call 704-872-3000 or register at

All musicians are welcome with family appropriate music and lyrics.  One heck of a celebration of our local talent as well as out-of-town and out-of-state talent coming in.  Country, Classic Rock ‘n Roll, Contemporary Christian, Gospel, Jazz, Bluegrass, Blues, Hip Hop, Violin, Church Choirs, ElderCenter’s Snappy Senior Singers, family bands, youth, school bands and choruses, you name it! 

It’s wonderful that the owners of the mall are providing the venue for us…inside so we don’t have to be concerned about the weather. 

We still need volunteers to serve as greeters, verifiers and at our registration desk.  Volunteer for a 4-hr. slot at or call 704-872-3000 with any questions you may have.

I want to tell you how proud I am of our United Way staff who have maintained a high level of enthusiasm and fought off frustrations in managing this event.  Chris Bumgarner, our volunteer organizer, has been just awesome in his leadership and  hard work to make certain breaking this record becomes a reality for our community.  And, of course, he wants to provide a source of funds for the 23 local United Way agencies.

Stay tuned as we count down the days!
