LLAMAS Activities

There are a number of activities and events that LLAMAS and its members participate in as part of carrying out the LLAMAS mission.  These include:

  1. Promoting the observance of International Louie Louie Day each year on April 11.

  2. Encouraging artists to record and make available new versions of Louie Louie.

  3. Pushing to get Louie Louie recognized by Guinness World Records as the song that has been covered more than any other.  The good folks at Guinness currently recognize "Yesterday" by the Beatles as having that honor, but we have documented enough versions of Louie Louie to demonstrate that it should hold the record.

  4. Supporting other efforts to set records or create other noteworthy events involving Louie Louie - such as the LouieFest event that attempted to set a world record by having over 1000 guitarists simultaneously playing Louie Louie.

  5. Encouraging greater recognition of Louie Louie, and the artists that have contributed to the Louie Louie legacy, in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

  6. Educating the public about the unique history of Louie Louie, and supporting other initiatives aimed at telling the Louie Louie story - such as the forthcoming documentary film, "The Meaning of Louie." 

  7. Advocating for official recognition of Louie Louie, such as a street name or even revitalizing the effort to have Louie Louie declared the official rock song of Washington State.

  8. Anything else that we think of.
