How to create the perfect playlist for Trivia Night

Our music guy and Phoenix Celebrity Host, Joey Partee, shares some of his best tips for creating the perfect playlist.

Tips from video:

  • Include popular songs everyone knows, but feel free to expose your crowd to some well-chosen new material as well.
  • Keep people engaged and having fun with upbeat songs.
  • Keep it classy, avoid profanity.
  • Spotify is a great tool for making playlists.
  • Consider music that is relevant to a holiday or season, like Michael Jackson’s Thriller for Halloween.
  • Start with a good show opener that creates great momentum, like Thunderstruck by AC/DC.
  • Choose songs that are about 4 to 4.5 minutes long.
  • Have fun and build your playlist with a theme!

Last Call Trivia

Last Call Trivia began in the Fall of 2007 when founders Adam and Drew saw a niche for great Trivia Nights in the Cincinnati market. The 10 years that followed bootstrapped their love of Trivia into the seats of hundreds of bars across the country. The best part of our epic journey has been the community we’ve been able to create and that community is a testament to the power of Trivia Nights. We believe that our role in this industry is not a zero-sum game, but rather an infinite game where we seek to help knowledge spread and lives change.
