Tonight I'm playing with two boards as ROCKET and LITBOX, with Rob COSMO, Sean METLCA, and Phil PLBAAB at The Frog & Firkin.

My game so far had gone like this:
TuneUp...ROCKET...4000/5000...4th/7...ROCKET, METLCA and COSMO win round.
...........LITBOX...4500/5000...1st/7...I split one of my boards on an answer about who wrote an Xmas song.  Otherwise
one for two in guessing.
OnBeat...ROCKET...12000/14000...2nd/7...my two boards win round.
..........LITBOX...12500/14000...1st/7...I go 8 right and 1 wrong which was good as I guessed about two answers.
JukeBox...ROCKET...17189/20000...2nd/7...ROCKET wins round.
...........LITBOX...17680/20000...1st/7...We do alright on this round.
Triviaoke...ROCKET...21645/28000...2nd/7...METLCA wins round.
...........LITBOX...22137/28000...1st/7...I only take two -250 for this round which included the new song by 
Alicia Keys...another question netted me +9 and +17 for one of them changing a Christmas carol at the last second.

Now the Encore answers come up. Disco bands. Hmmm I played the new Kylie Minogue CD 'X' on the walk down here so I'm ready for these old classic disco groups.

Encore Question:...Which band had their first US #1 hit in 1975 with "Get Down Tonight"?:

Rob says the answer first while I'm still dictating the question. Yes. This is pretty easy. Of course that being said by a guy who owns their 31 song "25th Anniversary Collection" CD so I don't know how other bars will do.

Correct Answer:....2. KC & The Sunshine Band

[NTN Extra Fact:...The band earned a Grammy award in 1978 for their work in Saturday Night Fever.]

I'm right and win as LITBOX at 33205 points. I finish 15th on the Network Top 20 in all North America. The bar is 12th in North America with a 30952 average. I earn 3000+ points for making this week's standard of 17000.
(NTN.com moved us up to 11th out of 1495 bars).

Here's how the rest of the bar did: 
Player	preEncore	Final	Rank	ntn.com rank
LITBOX	22137		33205	  15	  40
ROCKET	21645		32467	  24	  56
COSMO	20781		31171	  43	  95
METLCA	20125		30187	  57	 125

(NTN.com listed 6711 players)
