It’s not just that Connie plays two saxophones at the same time,  Rashaan Roland Kirk style,  or that she has developed a unique style,  more melodically based,  rather than riff oriented. If the music was not so bouncy,  entertaining,  storytelling,  danceable fun,  you might think the two horn aspect was just a flashy gimmick (and its pretty amazing and surprising when it’s happening).  But the writing has the resonant quality that draws the listener in,  even when the ideas are fresh and new.

The Treacherous French are an eclectic indie rock band hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area. The songs they write are catchy yet complex, while staying true to their indie, blues, country, and alt-rock roots. The lineup consists of a group of four multi-instrumentalists from differing backgrounds ranging from folk rock to punk rock to dance rock to Celtic jazz folk fusion. The standard lineup of rock band instruments is well represented: bass, guitar, drums, vocals, keys - but if you listen closely, you may hear some twists as well: accordion, mandolin, harmonica, glockenspiel, washboard, kalimba - and this blend of styles and instrumentation is what makes The Treacherous French what it is.

LIVE MUSIC - Duckmandu

  • Ferment.Drink.Repeat - FDR Brewery (map)

Aaron Seeman's onslaught of solo accordion and vocals has astounded audiences of all shapes and sizes. Maximum Rock 'n Roll, the premier punk magazine, pronounced him "over the top!" for his note-for-note renditions of the entire first Dead Kennedys album, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables. His repertoire also includes, but is not limited to, 70's rock, Broadway, klezmer, classical, country, Sousa marches, punk rock, and even a polka or two.

Rather than play hokey accordion versions of these songs, Duckman/Seeman seeks to demonstrate that accordion and vocals alone can evoke the spirit of the song, whether the hard driving rock of AC/DC, the wide vocal range and sonic landscape of Boston, or the supersonic speeds and driving force of Dead Kennedys.

In addition to his accordionizationizing, Aaron Seeman is a founding member, arranger, and vocalist with San Francisco's Punk Rock Orchestra, which performs full scale orchestral versions of classic punk songs. He also plays accordion in ShamalamacordPolkacide, and Red Hot Chachkas. Aaron Seeman was a founding member of the eclectic Romanian Music-inspired folk group Fishtank Ensemble. He has recorded with Mr. Bungle and Estradasphere. He is the composer of a modern classical opera "Opium: Diary of a Cure."

3rd ANNUAL OKTOBERFEST CELEBRATION

  • Ferment. Drink. Repeat - FDR Brewery (map)

Join us at FDR Brewery for our 3rd Annual Oktoberfest Celebration.  The Taproom will be all decked out like a German Beer Hall and we’ ll feature live music and festivities including beer brats, pretzel necklaces, stein holding contests, and delicious beers brewed  just for this special occasion.

For our Fest, We'll have three German Lagers on tap:

Our Award-winning "Helles Afraid We'll Take Over" Munich Helles, 5.3% ABV .... A clean, malt-oriented lager showcasing the grainy sweetness of Pilsner malt. Spicy and floral notes from Perle hops and a dry finish keep the sweetness in check, making it exceedingly refreshing. A perfect beer for everyday consumption. GigaYeast German Lager yeast. 

Schwarz Sabbat (Black Sabbath) Schwarzbier, 4.7% ABV ... Pilsner and Munich malts form the base on which we deftly layer de-husked roasted malt leading to a smooth, yet crisp, dry, refreshing lager. German Perle hops provide just the right amount of spicy and floral notes. GigaYeast German Lager yeast.

Oktoberfest, 6% ABV ... Brewed in the tradition of Oktoberfest dating to before the 1990s when the beer at the famous Munich fest switched to a lighter style more akin to Pilsner or Helles. This amber hued gem is rich in notes of bread crust and toast from a grain bill of 100% Munich base malts. German Perle hops provide just a hint of floral and spicy notes, and GigaYeast German Lager yeast provides the smooth lager character desired in this quaffable festive beer.

All week we'll have festive Oompah music playing and our fun photo-op backdrop with props for your social media pleasure ... So, break out your Dirndls and Lederhose and come join the fun! You won't want to miss this party. Prost!

Dante was the lead guitarist for the NJ-based band Noah's Arcade and has performed with regional groups The Rearrangement, Some Assembly Required, the Jon Lall Band, Geneva & the Conventions, and the one-night-only blues spectacular known as Fake ID. He was a musician in residence at Winberie’s in the heart of Princeton, NJ, and has been performing solo or with bands at bars, coffeeshops, restaurants, breweries, and weddings for the past 15 years.  He loves nothing more than to entertain song requests, and he may even let you sing one if you know the words and you're bigger than him (which you probably are).
