Musicians all look alike: A game of match and mismatch

FeaturePhotoGuitars

challenge presented by Richard Uznanski, Louise Uznanski, Holley Dey

Got game?

We do!  It’s a matching game, and we’re going to give you all the answers.  Sounds simple, doesn’t  it?  Then again…..

Here is the challenge:  Look carefully at the numbered photographs in the following collage.  Then study the list of musician names that follows. Can you match the names to the photographs?  Not all of the choices on the list of names will be used; it’s possible that some names could be used more than once. Does a special guitar, a wave of the hand or pair of shoes jog your memory?  You may quickly recognize several of the photos; these are artists who have been featured by On Tap.

When ready, enter your answers in the comments section below.  List the number of the photograph and then the name of the musician who matches that photo.  For example:  1. Johnny Cash  2. B.B. King….

Can’t figure out some of the matches?  You’re not alone!  Guess.  There is no penalty for guessing.  The reader with the most correct answers wins the grand prize.  In the event of a tie, the tie-breaker will be the official time stamp of the comment submission.  Here is the prize:

One Grand Prize Winner - One 8 x 10 Color Glossy Photograph of the artist of your choice (to be selected from among those featured in the matching game) AND the most recent albums from Jamie McLean Band, Live at Gibson, and Adam Ezra Group, Ragtop Angel.  (Thank you to the Jamie McLean Band and Adam Ezra Group for their generous support!)

This is Part 1 of a two-part contest.  Contest entries for Part 1 must be submitted by Thursday, June 28 at 11 pm EST.  The answers for Part 1 will be posted Friday morning, June 29, and the Part 2 challenge made available at that same time.  The Part 1 grand prize winner will be posted on the blog, so check back on Friday to see if you’re a winner!  Answers to Part 2 will be posted on Monday, July 2 and a second prize winner declared.

Good Luck and Have Fun!!!

Reminder: When submitting your responses in the comment box, please use the number in the upper left of each photo as a reference; for example:    1. Johnny Cash  2. B.B. King….

  3. I want to play but I have no clue! 2, 8 and 11 look like Taylor and 3 looks like Susan Tedeschi, but that’s all I got.

    Clever idea!

      Oh no! I bet you had all the right answers, too! Dang.

    I see everyone is putting Hicks as 12. I was guessing based on guitars and 12′s guitar certainly looks like Clapton’s but the hands and shirt look like Taylor’s. Oh well, got at least one wrong :)
