Becky's Island Music Trivia Quiz #26 - 8/22/01

What Do They Play?

Dancing male vocal groups, female R&B vocal groups, rappers - sometimes it seems like we're losing the art of playing instruments on stage. In this quiz, I've given you groups of four musicians, and you tell me what instrument they all play.
