The world guitar record attracts crowds of musicians to Wroclaw

At the age of 20, he joined Frank Zappa’s band and then played with Joe Satriani, Ozzy Osbourne and many others. Steve Vai, one of the world’s best guitarists, will play during the Guitar World Record 2023 in Wroclaw on 1st May. Vai will play the guitar solo in the legendary song Hey Joe, which became famous in Jimi Hendrix’s version and is performed together by a few thousand guitarists on the Wroclaw Market Square every year.

Steve Vai has been present on stage for over 40 years. During his solo career, he has proved an outstanding instrumentalist and made a huge contribution to the development of guitar music. He has collaborated, among others, with Joe Satriani, Ozzy Osbourne, David Lee Roth and John Lydon. His playing style is heavily inspired by such guitar giants as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Brian May or Ritchie Blackmore.

‘I am happy that Steve will play with us again. His previous performance in 2014 was a memorable experience for many guitar lovers and is a brilliant showcase for our Guitar Records,’ says Leszek Cichoński, the originator of the event.

Steve Vai will play in Wroclaw during the 21st edition of the biggest guitar event to help set a new Guitar World Record – 7,677 guitars and other string instruments playing together will be needed to break the record this year.
