SUMMER ACOUSTIC SERIES - The Treacherous French

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.

Summer Acoustic Series - Gaby Castro with Special Guest Aprylle Gilbert

Gaby Castro is an Americana singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, poet, model, actress, and activist. This San Francisco Bay Area native combines introspective songwriting reminiscent of Carole King and Joan Baez with the contemporary style of Taylor Swift and Kacey Musgraves. Her new EP entitled La Guerrera//The Warrior EP was released worldwide on March 8th, 2019, to coincide with International Women’s Day. An advocate for mental illness awareness, many of Gaby’s songs touch on her personal struggles and the trials of those around her. Let her music tell the stories.

https://gabycastro.bandcamp.com/album/red-rock-sessions-live-from-mountain-view

http://www.gaby-castro.com/

Embracing the folksy pop of artists such as Suzanne Vega and Sheryl Crow, Aprylle Gilbert combines stirring melodies with words of inspiration, joy, and - at times –sadness. In a voice both pensive and sultry that often hints at an underlying self-consciousness, Aprylle takes the listener on a trek that is semi-autobiographical yet familiar to most of us. There is an overall theme of learning to be true to yourself, and the happiness that lies in finding someone who will accept you for who you are. To that end, much of Aprylle's music is lifting and inspirational, though poignant reminders of a not-so-joyful past are ever present from an aspiring songstress longer afraid to bare her soul.

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).
