About The Quiz 2017-10-03T16:10:10+00:00


SFMQ was created by DJ Al Scott who came up with the idea of revolutionizing the music round from the old pub quiz format and turning that section into a full on night out and a raucous party. Coming up with 8 or more eclectic music based categories, which make up the quiz and only playing the best bits of the songs ensuring 8 parties in one night. The quiz changes on a monthly basis, guaranteeing regulars don’t hear the same categories again and again, keeping it fresh and up to date.

Over the years SFMQ has evolved into the UK’s biggest music quiz – with weekly residencies in London, monthly around the UK and regular festival performances as well as private bookings, weddings and corporate functions. Due to its ever increasing popularity and success based on the unique ethos of ‘you don’t need to know the answers to have a good time’ SFMQ has grown into one of the biggest names on the alternative nightlife scene. Sounds Familiar Music Quiz has a growing team of comperes, DJs, photographers/videographers and quiz helpers who all keep the SFMQ values at heart.

So – what IS Sounds Familiar Music Quiz?

SFMQ is a party in a music quiz format…It’s like 8 club-nights in one evening with big crowds and big tunes. We play clips of tracks and all the teams have to do is tell us the track and the artist…easy as that. We have 100 eclectic tracks per quiz and we only play the best bits. By the end of the night, the crowd are on their feet (or in some case – the tables) dancing and singing into their inflatable microphones, supplied by SFMQ of course! What’s more, unlike with most quizzes, there isn’t just a prize for the winners. SFMQ give away prizes for second and third places as well as a LOSER prize and a Best Team Name award. Simply put, it’s a brilliant night out – but don’t take our word for it, check out our TESTIMONIAL page to read reviews from our happy customers.
