Suresh Joachim has attempted to surpass the existing Guinness World Record for the longest keyboard performance. At the time of writing, the epic performance – in which the veteran fund-raiser aimed to play more than 1,500 songs in 120-plus hours at Toronto’s Malvern Town Centre – was still in progress.

Joachim’s latest record attempt seeks to surpass Romuald Koperski’s previous title-holding performance of 103 hours, 8 seconds.

The epic set – which is raising funds for Rouge Valley Health System Foundation to support the purchase of new medical equipment and major expansion projects – is certainly not the first record-breaking endeavour by Joachim. In fact, he has broken a remarkable 60-plus World Records in his time, including World’s Fastest Movie (script to screening in 11 days, 23 hours and 45 minutes) and Longest Non-Stop Musical Performance with Band (42 hours).

Future feats are set to include the World Peace Marathon in 2011/2012, during which Joachim hopes to raise 1 billion dollars for charity, and Most Roles Played By an Actor in One Film (35 characters all played by Joachim himself).
