I witnessed my first in-person flash mob last night as Eric “Mean” Melin (@SceneStealrEric on Twitter) led this creative group of Richie Sambora and Eddie Van Halen wannabes in what is rumored to be the world’s largest air guitar flash mob – right here on the streets of Kansas City.

The air guitar flash mob was in support of the 2011 US Air Guitar Championships Regional Competition coming to Kansas City on May 19, 2011. In a Kansas City First Friday filled with lots of strolling and looking at works of art, Eric’s air guitar flash mob was definitely a creative highlight! – Mike Brown

    Hi Mike –

    Thanks for coming and posting this awesome video. believe it or not, the America Now and Here people loved what we had done, got video of it, and added it to their archive of American art. They even interviewed me as a “contributing artist.” It was a blast–great to see you there!

      Congratulations Eric! That’s so great they incorporated the flash mob into the archive. It’s nice to see an art exhibit which is actively curating art that takes place around it! I appreciated being clued in so we could come down and experience it live!
