Andrew Riccatelli, drummer of Brooklyn-based melodic hardcore band Grail will compete on Food Network's 'Chopped' tonight (Tuesday, March 7) at 10pm. Check local listings.
Riccatelli, who in addition to his drumming duties, is the Executive Chef at Terroir, based in NYC's Tribeca, says, "Going on Chopped has always been a dream of mine. The whole thing was surreal. Its just as intense as it seems on TV. It was probably one of the craziest things I’ve ever done. An experience I'll never forget."
Grails' forthcoming debut EP, 'Still Alive', is out March 21st.
The band will play an album release show at NJ's GameChanger World on 3/26 (with Poeta).
Grail features members of both Driver Side Impact and Dear Whoever.
