Shed Seven challenge fans to virtual quiz


Shed Seven fans are being given the ultimate opportunity to prove their credentials in a live contest that will see them go head-to-head with the five members of the acclaimed indie band.

The Shed Seven themed quiz, which will be streamed live on Shed Seven’s Facebook page on Thursday night (28th May), is being hosted by SpeedQuizzing, a quiz tech company co-founded by Shed Seven drummer Alan Leach.

It will see fifteen fans go head-to-head against Rick and the band over a series of fast-paced rounds covering everything and anything related to Shed Seven.

It’s the latest in a series of events SpeedQuizzing is running featuring members from well-known indie bands spanning the last three decades.  The first quiz featured an array of frontmen and women from the likes of Shed Seven, The Bluetones, Dubstar and The Seahorses, while the most recent contest saw drummers from the likes of Supergrass, Kaiser Chiefs and Jake Bugg, battle it out.

Commenting on the band’s chances in this latest quiz, Alan comments:

You’d think that being in the band the quiz is based on would give us a pretty tasty advantage here, but I fear the opposite may prove true.

It’s probably fair to say that some of our memories of being in the band over the last 25 or so years are a little hazy, to say the least. Combine this apparent memory-loss with the fact that we have some very loyal and knowledgeable fans out there, and I think you start to get a fair assessment of our chances!

Our aim, other than trying not to embarrass ourselves too much, is to have a bit of a laugh with a few fans and hopefully provide a little entertainment to anyone watching at home.

 In order to be in the running for one of the fifteen spots, fans simply need to take part in tonight’s (Wednesday 27 May) qualifying event.
