Students Test Their Musical Forte With “Music Mayhem”

On the evening of Thursday, Sept. 7,  students arrived at the Laird Room in the Dreyfus University Center to participate in Music Mayhem.

Music Mayhem is a group that can be booked for events like parties, weddings and for campuses.

Some of the participants were curious after seeing the demonstration in Upper Debot around lunch time.

“I saw the demo, and I like music so I wanted to check it out,” said Mandi Durocher, freshman social work major.

“I came because I saw their demonstration in upper Debot, I like music, and Mandi made me,” said Cailyn Dusky, sophomore social work major.

Students had to sign in on a website with their phones. As teams, participants had to come up with the song title and the artists and punch in their answers on the website.

They could only answer when the song started to play and the boxes projected on the screen showed the number of letters in the title and artists name.

“The purpose of the event was to have students meet new people and have fun,” said Ben Vanderlogt, sophomore social science major and special event coordinator for Centertainment Productions.

Vanderlogt said that it plays a variety of different music so there is something for everyone.

The target audience was new students since it was an event where you had to get to know some of your team members before they started.

“I came because I’m into different types of music, and I’m good at trivia, even if it’s just me guessing,” said Adrienne Hagen, sophomore sociology major.

Throughout the night, the group that ran Music Mayhem handed out raffle tickets to win prizes. Prizes included hats, long sleeve shirts and phone wallets.

The winning team of each round won two tickets. Second place received one ticket each. At the very end of the night, they raffled off the rest of the gear and a home version of the game Music Mayhem.

Participants were enjoying themselves so much that, at one point in the night, the whole room came together and sang “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz.

The touching moment was over when, after that round, the team named “team better than you” fell from first place on the scoreboard and someone in the room yelled, “Apparently they’re not after all!”

The night was a great way for students to meet other music lovers and work together with new people and test their knowledge of music.
