50's, 60's and 70's Music Trivia II

50's, 60's, 70's Music Trivia Event

Cool Tunes and Interesting Facts from the 50s, 60s and 70s.

We know that many of our members love and are quite knowledgeable about music. On Wednesday, July 31st at 7:15 PM we want to give you a chance to test your music knowledge in a fun, entertaining, non-pressurized and friendly competition.

Let's begin to gather after work on the 2nd floor of The Madison Avenue Pub at 6:00 PM. This will give everyone a chance to mix, mingle and socialize a bit before we start. The Madison's food and drink prices are amazing as well. When we were there last I paid only $10 for a decent appetizer and a pint of Canadian. You cannot beat that!!

The Madison Avenue Pub is being quite generous with their space, so let's do the best we can to support them by ordering an entrée, an appetizer, drinks, or any combination of the three!! We'll begin the 50's, 60's, 70's music trivia at 7:15 PM, so don't be late!!

Okay, here's how it's going to work...

We will form teams of 3 or 4 people and together you will first try to guess a few great tunes from the 50s, 60s and 70s. The second part of the game will consist of trivia questions about all kinds of interesting, unusual and surprising facts and events about various aspects of the music industry.

After round one is completed, we will award points to the top teams and then we’ll take a small break.

After the break we'll switch things up a bit and everyone will be placed into brand new teams. The idea is to get to know as many of your fellow group members as possible. So, for round two you will be with 2 or 3 completely new team members. Of course, points will again be awarded for the 2nd round as well. At the end of round 2, we will add up all the points from both rounds and the 3-4 people with the highest scores will win a free drink or dessert of their choice.

It’s going to be a lot of fun and hey, you might actually even learn a few things along the way. We hope that many of you will come out and participate in this friendly competition. So hit the books, dust off your record player and bone up on all those hits of the past.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to our 2nd music trivia event. If you enjoy music trivia, we may even make this a regular thing.

There's a $5 meetup fee for this event.

The Madison Avenue Pub is conveniently located downtown near the corner of Spadina & Bloor. If you're taking the Bloor/Danforth subway, get off at Spadina Station. When you exit the station, turn left on Spadina, left on Bloor and one more left at Madison Ave. If you're driving, there's a parking lot ever so slightly north of Spadina Stn. on Spadina Avenue.

We will be on the 2nd Floor, V.I.P. Room. Just ask for Life Begins at 40!!

We look forward to seeing you there!!

    Alex and Markus, you are the makers of fun times. Thanks for sharing your vast knowledge in music artists. Perhaps, tunes from all the tv shows (classics and lesser-knowns) that we watched back in the day would be just as fun...and nothing before Alex was born, right...1942 Benny Goodman? ;-P

    Thank you very much to everyone who came out to our 2nd music trivia evening. I hope you had a great time. It was very impressive how knowledgeable some of you are. Several groups scored in 80%+ range when it came to guessing the tunes. WOW!! So, I guess the questions were not really that hard. If you are into music that is. Unfortunately, things got at little difficult to control in terms of finalizing the total scores. There was a lot of coming and going. A few people who signed up did not show up. A whole bunch of folks showed up without being on the rsvp list. It was a bit difficult to keep track who was really there. Some people also left before the event was over. Some sheets were handed in without names. Some had no points calculated. etc. So, it took some detective work to figure out which group scored how many points. But I think I was finally able to put all the puzzle pieces together. The rankings are published in a separate posting.

      LOL! - Nice try, Matt. Sorry - no life lines allowed. But you'll be working on the questions as part of a team of 3 or 4 people. So, the idea is to help each other find the answers. It's a lot of fun and there was a lot of laughter and singing going on, last time. I am sure you'll have a good time. Before you pick a team - maybe you should interview people first to see how much they know. LOL! Just kidding....

      July 13, 2013

    • Matt

      Hey Markus, - no need for interviews, whatever team I am with will know more than me....hmmmm with this post no one may want me on their team...LOL..maybe I can sing the songs....oh no, lets not go down that road...LOL. Looking forward to the evening.
