100 Very Good Reasons Why… by Tim Brady.

The Complex Desjardins atmosphere is charged with electricity! No less than 100 electric guitarists will divide their talents in this major public area to create an event of high musical intensity. Renowned guitarist Tim Brady, originator of this larger-than-life project, directs a group of amateur and experienced professional musicians to interpret a one-of-a-kind work. 100 guitarists, located in each corner of the Complex, will make their strings reverberate freely through the space, electrifying the atmosphere on a Saturday afternoon. This creation is a tribute in honor of the 100th birthday of the legendary American guitarist and inventor, Les Paul.
