I have an echo dot, an echo spot and 3 sets of older Sonos speakers that do not support voice services. Is there any way to direct Alexa to play my music on all of my Sonos speakers at the same time?

Not currently - you have to group them first in the Sonos app. Your speakers do support voice services in that your dot, spot etc. will control them by saying "Alexa play Bruno Mars in Living Room" where living room is the name of your older Sonos speaker.

However - Sonos has said they are working on more advanced skills and we expect to get improved control over grouping and room in the future. This would also include not having to say the "in living room" part and the dot knowing the sonos speaker to default to.
