Jamiroquai Plays for Mile High Club

2/28/2007 2:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The only place Jamiroquai can get a gig these days ... is at 30,000 feet!

The funk rockers entered the Guinness Book of World Records yesterday by playing a gig in a Boeing 757 -- while mid-flight from Munich to Athens! The band had to perform through some pretty rough turbulence, with lead singer Jay Kay holding on to overhead bins to keep his balance. The band's fans aboard the flight were ordered to remain seated with their seatbelts fastened, preventing dancing in the aisles.

Content with breaking a few bizarre records -- including Highest Gig in the World -- and then quickly descending to his pre-flight obscurity, Jay Kay also announced yesterday to The Daily Mirror -- he's quitting music altogether. Please return your trays to their original upright position.

Update: Jay Kay issued the following statement on Jamiroquai's official website: "As usual they [The Daily Mirror] got it wrong for a cheap headline! All I said was that we're taking a bit of time out to get the studio refurbished and we'll be back making music in a few months time. There's no way I'm quitting the music business."
