CARMELO ANTHONY, AMAR’E STOUDEMIRE, HENRIK LUNDQVIST AND JOHN MCENROE JOIN JD & THE STRAIGHT SHOT AND THOUSANDS OF EAGLES FANS
Last night, the sound of 7,422 kazoos being played simultaneously by Eagles fans at Madison Square Garden resulted in a world record and – as pledged – a $100,000 donation by Jim Dolan to the ALS Association.
Dolan, Madison Square Garden Executive Chairman and Cablevision Systems Corporation CEO, was performing as frontman for his band – JD & The Straight Shot -- the opening act for the Eagles concert Thursday night. He was joined on stage by Knicks stars Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire, Rangers all-star goaltender Henrik Lundqvist and tennis legend John McEnroe for the landmark moment.
Kazoos were distributed to ticket-holders as they entered The Garden for the Eagles concert on Thursday. When the band launched into “Governor’s Song,” a song from its new album, Where I’ve Been, the fans joined Dolan, Anthony, Stoudemire, Lundqvist and McEnroe for the kazoo solo. But in this case, it was a “solo” performed by 7,422 participants. The mission accomplished, Dolan announced his $100,000 donation to ALS. The kazoo challenge started last Friday on The Today Show when Dolan participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and then challenged fans to join him in breaking the kazoo record.
