Will you take home the coveted Slayers Cup?

Deep Cuts Music Trivia, an online music trivia event, will hold the world’s first music trivia championship on November 18, 2020. The online competition will award the first annual Slayers Cups Music Trivia Championship trophy. (The link to enter the competition for free is below.)

Deep Cuts Trivia is the brainchild of Robert von Goeben (aka Bobby the Beerslayer), whose diverse career has included stints as a professional drummer, a record company executive, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist and the founder of a global toy company. He is the author of seven books on various topics, including The Deep Cuts Big Book of Musical Trivia, to be published on Nov. 15. It’s “perfect for that freak who pores over album covers and liner notes.”

Some sample questions from The Deep Cuts Big Book of Musical Trivia (See answers below*)

“Music trivia is a wide-open field in music entertainment, no one is doing it in any organized fashion,” von Goeben says. He points out that there was once a first golf tournament, a first chess tournament, and of course, a first football championship. It just takes a maniacally dedicated individual and organization to unite a sport, the Nov. 10 announcement notes.

No championship is complete without its trophy. Hockey has a Stanley Cup, the Masters Tournament has a green jacket, and in the same vein Deep Cuts will bestow on its champion the coveted Slayers Cup, a cheap wooden beer stein with celebratory art burned into it.

The Deep Cuts Slayers Cup is open to all players and is free to register here.

Upcoming December events include “Classic 60s Week” on Dec. 2 and “Christmas Music Week” on Dec. 16.
