Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The big bands of the thirties and forties usually took the name of their leader, who was usually a talented musician himself. Which of these leaders played the trombone?

Answer: Glenn Miller

Although the distinctive sound of Miller's band was achieved with clarinet and saxophone combinations, the man himself played a trombone to good effect. Goodman's instrument of choice was a clarinet, James was a trumpeter and Brown played sax.

2. This five-man band included an accordionist and a leader who played drums and sang, when they appeared on the "Ed Sullivan Show" in 1965. Their hits included "This Diamond Ring" and "Save Your Heart for Me". Who were they?

Answer: Gary Lewis and the Playboys

Some controversy surrounded their appearance on the iconic variety show due to their not being able to reproduce their hit single totally "live" as Sullivan preferred. The band had formed just a year earlier, playing at Disneyland, and soon only Lewis and John West (the accordion player) remained of the original five. A series of other musicians became Playboys over the years, with the band reforming in the early 21st century releasing a new single "You Can't Go Back" in 2012. Whether being the son of a famous father (Jerry) smoothed the way for Lewis is a matter of conjecture, but "Save Your Heart for Me" can still make me cry.

3. This Canadian band formed in Toronto in 1968 and originally had thirteen members playing a rock/jazz/classical sound. Their "One Fine Morning" peaked at 24 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1971. What name did they give themselves?

Answer: Lighthouse

Drummer Skip Prokop and Nick Hoffert (keyboard) got together with a number of other musicians, including Ralph Cole (guitar) and Don Whitton (cello) to produce a sound that has been compared to that of Chicago. Many other musicians performed with Lighthouse over the years, and though they officially disbanded in the 1970s reunions have happened on a regular basis.

4. This six-man band was formed in 1970 and is perhaps most famous for amazing fiddle playing in its songs. What was the name of this band that performed the hit song "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" in 1979?

Answer: The Charlie Daniels Band

Charlie Daniels formed his band in 1970 with Barry Barnes, Mark Fitzgerald, Gary Allen, Fred Edwards, and Taz DiGregorio. In 1975, Barnes, Fitzgerald, and Allen left the band, and were replaced by three new members. Daniels played the fiddle in "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" which topped the US charts for country music when it was released in 1979.

5. This band was one of the earliest punk bands on the New York scene. They are recognized as very influential and received several accolades over the years, though they never had much commercial success (that's okay, commercial success is not 'punk;). Despite their shared stage name, none of the members were actually related. What band is it?

Answer: The Ramones

The Ramones formed in Queens, NY in 1974. New York was one of the major scenes for the rise of punk music in the 1970s. The band was formed John Cummings, Douglas Colvin and Jeffrey Hyman. Douglas Colvin was the first to really become a 'Ramone'; he took the stage name Dee Dee Ramone and convinced his bandmates to all take the name Ramone, and they'd call themselves The Ramones. The other two founders became Johnny Ramone (Cummings) and Joey Ramone (Hyman). They had several other members over the years; only Tommy (Thomas Erdelyi) and Marky (Marc Bell) were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the three founders in 2002.

The band remained active for many years, disbanding officially in 1996. In addition to making it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the band has also been included in multiple recognitions of influential artists and is considered an all-time great band, for example on "Rolling Stone" lists such as the 50 Greatest Artists of All Time. The band also received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011; unfortunately all three founding members were dead by the time they received this award.

6. A rock-reggae/punk band formed in the US in the late '80s, this band all but disbanded in 1996 following the death of the lead singer. Their most successful album, a self-titled one, was not released until after his death, but its success gained more popularity for their earlier albums, "40 oz. to Freedom" (1992) and "Robbin' the Hood" (1994). What band is this?

Answer: Sublime

Bradley Nowell was the lead singer, and guitarist, of Sublime. He died of a heroin overdose in 1996, two months before the album "Sublime" was released. While the band's earlier albums were already popular among a select market and they themselves were popular enough to be the co-starring group of the very first Vans Warped Tour in 1995, it was the songs off of "Sublime" that became the most successful, such as "What I Got" and "Santeria".

While the other band members did not want to carry on being Sublime without Bradley Nowell, they did eventually reunite, recruiting a new singer named Rome Ramirez in 2009. It was decided in a court of law that the Sublime named belonged to Nowell, and so the new group recorded under the name Sublime with Rome. They released an album called "Yours Truly" in 2011.

7. A Canadian group formed in the 1990s, this band's style has changed quite a bit over the years. There is a noticeable difference between their early albums, such as 1994's "Naveed" and 1997's "Clumsy", and their early-2000s work, like "Gravity" (2002) and "Healthy in Paranoid Times" (2005). What band is this?

Answer: Our Lady Peace

Our Lady Peace formed in Toronto, Canada in 1992. "Naveed" was their debut album, and "Clumsy" was the second. After that came "Happiness... Is Not a Fish That You Can Catch" in 1999 and "Spiritual Machines" in 2000. After this was when things changed - founding guitarist Mike Turner left the band ('creative differences', of course) and the band dropped their long-time producer Arnold Lanni in favour of famous producer Bob Rock. The band's next albums lost their grungy sound and creative flavour; while still good, the music was a lot more polished and mainstream.

After going through a rough patch and nearly breaking up during the making of "Healthy in Paranoid Times" (which lead singer Raine Maida has called their worst album), the band took a short hiatus. When they returned to the studio, they made a conscious effort to get their old sound back with the newer albums "Burn Burn" (2009) and "Curve" (2012). Maida credits a 2010 tour in which the band performed the complete "Clumsy" and "Spiritual Machines" with reviving their previous style.

Answer: Maroon 5

The original four members of Maroon 5 were Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden, and Ryan Dusick. In 2001, James Valentine joined the group and they changed their name from Kara's Flowers to Maroon 5. As Maroon 5, they signed with Octone Records, and released their debut album "Songs About Jane" (2002). Ryan Dusick left the group in 2006 and was replaced by Matt Flynn, just months before they released their second album.

Which group was this, that went on a 9-year hiatus before reuniting in 2012 for a performance in Hershey, Pennsylvania?

Answer: 98 Degrees

98 Degrees was formed by Jeff Timmons in 1997. All four of its members were from Ohio, though the group formed in California. The group originally sang Motown hits, taking inspiration from the famed Motown group Boyz II Men. The group decided to go on hiatus in 2003, and the members went on to pursue other paths. They reunited in 2012 in Hershey, PA for a one-time performance at the Mixtape Festival that featured both solo and group performances from artists popular in the 1980s, the 1990s, and the 2000s.
