Welcome back to the blog. I hope you are having a very good weekend and that your trivia hosting has gone well. As you can see the blog has went from strength to strength this week with plenty of posts to get your teeth stuck into so if you have had a busy week and haven’t had a chance to catch up yet make sure you make some time this weekend to get through the posts from this week as there was plenty of useful information in there for you to take a look at.
Today, we are going to look at a lightly more different subject which is one I have been asked a few times – Should you, or should you not, be playing background music whilst hosting trivia? It’s a tougher question then it originally seems and has quite a bit to think about!
In my trivia hosting experience there is one factor to mention and that’s it could all depend on the bar.
Do they have a music licence?
Does the bar folk want to be disturbed by music as well as a trivia taking place?
Do you want to play ethereal music like you hear in the background of shows like Minute to Win it or Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
If you play upbeat music, are you prepared if people jump to the dance floor and start dancing instead of playing trivia?
As with every single post we make on here the prime factors to take into consideration are the venue and the audience. These should always be put first in you trivia hosting so no matter what I may say here, keep asking yourself….will this work in my audience?
