All eras of music in one place. This is a must-have for your DJ company, Trivia, or Music Bingo events.
Despite the fact that we all were born in different eras, one thing we can all agree is that there are some songs from every era starting from the 60s all the way to the early 2000s that stay in our head for so long and just makes us want to play it all on repeat. We have so many incredible and talented music artists from those decades, featuring Maroon 5 from the early 2000s, the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin from the 60s, Black Sabbath and Dolly Parton from the 70s, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen from the 80s, and bands like Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers from the 90s! So many amazing songs and artists! This game pack is definitely well worth the value, especially since you save up to 24% instead of buying these games separately.
Still thinking about the potential ideas with this mega game pack? Here are some amazing ideas for every era in this game pack!
The important thing to remember about these game packs is the fact that this is fun in a party or if you’re running a bar, you can certainly have so many music bingo nights with this. Now, if you’re going to be running any one of the eras in this pack, you’ll need matching decorations to go with each to set the mood and vibe in the room. Let’s start from the bottom up.
The 60s had a very diverse and bright set of decor to begin with. You can put up a ton of lava lamps across the room, tie-dyes and photos of posters of Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and other popular music bands and artists. Popular color schemes during the 60s were colors like coral, mustard, turquoise among many. Obviously, being able to add a peace sign or a massive light up peace sign. Alternatively, using neon signs would also be a good decorative piece. would be great!
Next, the 70s. You could reuse some decorative pieces from the 60s here and that’d definitely help with cost if you plan hosting another party after the 60s. You can have a massive disco ball hanging from the ceiling with strobe lights and smoke machines to complement it. Instead of hanging frames of music artists and bands, you can instead use disco vinyl records and some incredibly (but not obnoxiously) bright colored table cloths as well.
The 80s is a fairly easy era to work with in terms of decorations. During the 80s, neon colors were incredibly popular and using those colors would definitely go a long way in making an 80s based theme more authentic. Every invite, every club back in the day was filled with neon color decor. You certainly will be hitting the brief of an 80s themed party. Consider using black as well for contrast. Another cool thing that can be used as decor is essentially an arcade game or even a photo booth. That’ll be nailing the brief!
As for the 90s, well that again could be done easily! You can throw some confetti squares and triangles around. You can also hang some old 90s technology like floppy disks or CDs or maybe even VHS tapes! Even small things like Magic 8 Balls can be used as centerpieces on the table. If possible, you can rent a classic arcade game like Pac Man or Street Fighter and that provides both functionality and aesthetics to the party.
You can apply the same 90s decor for a 2000s themed party as well, though less confetti would be a nice touch. The early 2000s were a much simpler time than the one we live in right now. The internet was still growing and new consoles were out in the market. Instead of using arcades, you can pick up a PlayStation 1 or the original Xbox since that was around the time these new generations of consoles came out. You can also use some old CDs again or you can play the songs on a DVD player, if that’s possible!
Now that we are sorted on the decor part of the party, let’s move on to the dress code for each era.
For the 60s, loose and comfortable was something that was popular back then. Women can wear long skirts in earthy colors like brown or with patterns. Men can wear clothes like a vest, jeans in brown or darker tones. Obviously, both men and women can wear bell bottom jeans and if you want to, you can wear a poncho, especially if you will be having the party outside.
Next up, the 70s. The main emphasis here was bell-bottom pants, floral shirts and psychedelic and geometric prints. It isn’t massively different compared to the 60s so you could reuse some things. Some clothes like an army jacket, gaucho pants, tight corduroy are some ideas that you can look for. Afro and mullets were famous back then, if you want to change your hairstyle.
As for the 80s, you can ask your guests to wear leg warmers, animal prints clothes and a lot of neon colored clothes. You can also ask them to come as their favorite 80s musicians as well, making things interesting. Some ideas are lace blouses, ripped jeans and clothes along those lines.
The 90s is an interesting time. Mom jeans, cargo pants and bike shorts were incredibly famous back then. Crop tops and pleated skirts (similar to the one in the movie, Clueless?) were famous as well. Your guests can draw inspiration from the popular TV show, Friends as well.
The 2000s was where denim started to trend. You can expect your guests to wear bright colored and shiny outfits. They can also wear cardigans, a denim jacket along with a pair of denim jeans and also velour track sets. One thing for sure is that your guests can wear a lot of denim based products!
Those are some basic ideas you can use for your amazing themed music bingo party! Additionally, to make things more interesting, you can award your guests in some manner, either if they win or being the best dressed or simple things like that. For every era, you can give them small things like a disco ball keychain, an old console like the PS1, scrunchies, just small things that are actually reminiscent of the particular era.
These are some ideas that your guests would certainly enjoy for the Guitar Gods and if you have better ideas, feel free to let us know! You can find the playlist on every major music streaming platform like Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
Happy music bingo!
