The Shaft Bottom Boys played for nearly an hour — more than 6,00 feet below sea level. The venue was the Creighton Mine in Sudbury, Ontario - a community with a deep history in mining.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. A Canadian band has set a new Guinness World Record for deepest underground concert. Who knew that was even a thing? The Shaft Bottom Boys played for nearly an hour more than 6,000 feet below sea level. The venue was the Creighton Mine in Sudbury, Ontario, a community with a deep history in mining. Band members were dressed in matching orange coveralls, yellow boots and white hard hats complete with headlamps, but then so was their audience of miners.
