Join us at FDR for a live music trivia event!  In this new twist on pub trivia, your host (local musician Dante Ricci) will guide you through three rounds of music-based questions that will put your knowledge of bands/artists, TV theme songs, movie soundtracks, and pop culture to the test.  Dante will provide the music - your job is to answer questions, win prizes, and drink fantastic beer!  Stick around after the quiz when Dante will keep the fun going by playing your requests.  

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).

LIVE MUSIC - Duckmandu Does Oktoberfest

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."

Drenched in reverb and high on style, the Hiwatters are keeping the swing of
classic surf music alive in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

LIVE MUSIC TRIVIA with Dante Ricci

Join us every Third Thursday at FDR for a live music trivia event!  In this new twist on pub trivia, your host (local musician Dante Ricci) will guide you through three rounds of music-based questions that will put your knowledge of bands/artists, TV theme songs, movie soundtracks, and pop culture to the test.  Dante will provide the music - your job is to answer questions, win prizes, and drink fantastic beer!  Stick around after the quiz when Dante will keep the fun going by playing your requests.  

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).
