Melbourne: Artists in Australia have attempted to grab a place in the record books with a jam session lasting seven days.

More than 850 musicians took part in the 150-hour recording session that is yet to be verified by Guinness World Records.

Organiser Andy Arthurs, Professor of Music, Queensland University of Technology`s (QUT) said many precautions were taken to make sure there were no breaks in the session at the Riverstage in the Botanic Gardens.

“We had a house band to mop up when things went wrong so that whatever happened we kept going,” Australian Associated Press quoted Arthurs as saying.

“It`s recorded digitally on audio with two back-ups going,” Arthurs added.
