Don’t forget Quizzy trivia this Sunday at 6:30. Here’s some new trivia for you.

 

What historic event took place at Fraunces Tavern in New York City on December 4, 1783?

George Washington bade farewell to his officers following the Revolutionary War. Following his meeting with his officers, Washington resigned his commission as commander-in-chief and returned to Mount Vernon, intending to enjoy a much-deserved retirement. Fraunces Tavern is still open and houses a restaurant and a museum.

Heinhold’s First and Last Chance Saloon, in Oakland, California, was a hangout for which famous writer?

Jack London. Located on the Oakland waterfront, the bar was built in 1880 from the timbers of an old whaling ship. Sailors used to make this the last stop before going out to sea, and the first upon their return, hence the bar’s name. London used many of the stories he heard here in his books. For example, the saloon is mentioned 17 times in London’s novel “John Barleycorn”.

Which famous rebellion was planned in 1786 at Conkey’s Tavern in Pelham, Massachusetts?

Shays Rebellion. Daniel Shays, a decorated Revolutionary War veteran, organized about 800 Massachusetts farmers in rebellion against various farm policies which were bankrupting farmers. The rebellion was squelched the next year, but most of the men involved were ultimately pardoned.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!

Sam Densmore

Sam is a singer/songwriter based in Portland, Oregon. He plays Alternative, Folk, Acoustic and Rock music. His sound is similar to R.E.M., The Beatles, Neil Young, and Wilco.

Originally from the small coastal town of Coos Bay, he got his start playing in south coast clubs at the age of 14. Sam is classically trained as a vocalist, guitarist, and composer. And, with all that said, he states he’s a rock n roll renaissance man at heart.

In the summer of 2012, he released a CD and digital down load of his double EP by the name of  “Ku Thar Tik – Sad Songs For A Sad World/Cat Years” .  It’s a solo/acoustic recording based on Sam’s vocals and guitar playing. He received  rave reviews. In support of the album release he traveled and performed in over 140 shows in Oregon and Washington last year.

His show is entertaining, professional, and appealing to a wide variety of audiences.

Learn more about Sam at ReverbNation and listen to several of his tunes including “So Complex”, “Warm Day” and “Grandma’s Art”.
