FREE FEST: Dick-a-Thon @ the Ale House on Sunday


For years now, Dick Quinn has been one of Greater Nippertown’s most devoted music fans. And it’s not been an easy task for him, hauling around his oxygen tank as he scrambles from one band’s gig to another on a regular basis. So Kevin Maul, Big Frank Novko and a big bunch of the Local 518’s finest (and funnest) musicians decided to thank him for his constant attendance and continued encouragement by getting together and all playing at one big show so that Dick won’t have to travel around to hear all the music he loves.

The nine-hour (at least) Dick-A-Thon is slated to kick off at 2pm on Sunday (October 11) at the Ale House in Troy where Dick Quinn will be seated at his usual table – upfront, stage left.

You’re invited to the party, too. Stop by after the Troy Chowderfest, catch some tunes and thank Dick because without fans like Dick Quinn, there really wouldn’t be a local music scene in Greater Nippertown.

Thanks, Dick!
