Encore Question of February 12, 2000.
Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York.


  1. Billy Corgan
  2. Jakob Dylan
  3. Dave Matthews
  4. Lenny Kravitz
  5. Rob Thomas

Tonight I'm in the lead playing with Richard BERGIE and we're helping two young couples (REDEYE, MAVRIK, NOP, KPTKT) at the end of the bar. Our group and The Regulars we play against had both done well with the top ten teams over 20000 points.

My game so far had gone like this:
Tune-Up....4000/5000....all alone in 5th/14...four players tied with 4500 including BERGIE, NOP and MAVRIK.
OnBeat...12000/14000...1st/14...I win this round with eight right and one I don't risk a guess. Richard tipped me for three of them.
JukeBox...18000/20000...1st/14...I win this round with a perfect score.
Triviaoke...24539/28000...1st/14...REDEYE wins round.

The answers presented for the Encore looked like this would be a 'news' question of today's headlines. Richard and I sorted these guys out. Corgan-Smashing Pumpkins, Dylan-Wallflowers, Matthews-his own band, Kravitz-solo, Thomas-Matchbox 20 and recent work with Carlos Santana. Bring it on....

Question:...Who performed solely on accoustic guitar on the album "Live At Luther College"?

I don't own this CD but I've seen there's been an album on the Billboard charts for about a year listed as Dave Matthews so I called this one to our new friends after about two seconds. A fair question for three weeks in a row? I resolve to delete my snarky comments about jazz Encore questions.

Correct Answer:...3. Dave Matthews

[NTN extra fact:...He performs guitar duets with Tim Reynolds on the double CD release.]

I win with 36809 points. That's good for 5th on the Network Top 20 board, 30th overall. I earn 3000+ Players Plus points for meeting the 15000 point standard. I make 6th on our bar's Hall Of Fame Board. The bar is 7th in North America with a 34334 average.

Here's how our bar did:

Neat columns at last! I've finally discovered the PRE html tag.
