National Kazoo Day

Date When Celebrated: Event is always January 28

It's concert time, so dust off your favorite childhood musical instrument. People young and old love Kazoos. National Kazoo Day celebrates the joy of this musical instrument.

Alabama Vest of Macon Georgia made the first Kazoo in the 1840's. Actually, he conceived the Kazoo, and had Thaddeus Von Clegg, a German clockmaster make it to his specifications. 

Commercial production of the Kazoo didn't occur until many years later in 1912. Manufacturing was first started by Emil Sorg in Western New York. Sorg joined up with Michael McIntyre, a Buffalo tool and die maker. Production moved to Eden, NY where the factory museum remains today.

Kazoos are easy to play. Simply hum a tune into the kazoo, and you're an expert. Kazoos can be played solo, or in groups. It plays a great tune both ways.

What do you do on National Kazoo Day? Why, play the kazoo, of course. A solo is quite acceptable. playing the kazoo with a group of friends, is even more fun.



Thought for Today:  Brains are awesome. Don't you wish everybody had one?


History and Origin of National Kazoo Day:

We know when the Kazoo was invented, and by whom. We know a lot about the history of the Kazoo. But, we do not know who started National Kazoo Day.....yet. Stay, uh...tuned.

There is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress.
