about us

running successful quizzes for over 10 years

We have a very straight forward idea about pub quizzes – that learning doesn’t have to be boring, and that terrible dad jokes and puns are applicable all the time.

Dux Nuts started as a small hobby in one venue next to the University of WA. Our keep it simple approach proved to be a hit, with good old fashioned trivia fun. As popularity grew, so too did our venue list. We now boast one of the biggest availability of quiz night’s across Western Australia and have no intention of slowing down.

Whether you need an entertaining night to drive patrons to your venue, or need to raise funds for a worthy cause, Dux Nuts has you covered for all your Trivia needs. For our players, we offer a simple model, where questions aren’t too complicated and everyone can play (doesn’t mean it’s easy though!).

Shane Musarra

FOUNDER AND
MANAGING DIRECTOR

Back in 2011, in a valiant attempt to impress a girl, Shane took on the brave task of taking over the local pub’s Quiz night. While she didn’t stick around, he stuck to his quizmmitments and hasn’t stopped ever since.

Now back in Perth after some time in Dubai, Shane helps the day to day operations and you can often see him visiting our events.

Lee Mattfield

MANAGING DIRECTOR AND
ALL ROUND NICE GUY

Lee started off his microphone in a super cliche way,
by MC’ing a local pubs Karaoke night every week
for about a year.

Assuming that this was more than enough to qualify him to assist Shane in the creation of Dux Nuts Entertainment,
he has been a staple in the quiz market, and has been terrorising the public with his horrible jokes, and his Celine Dion playlists for years.

Tristan Wroth

OPERATIONS MANAGER

He’s spent long enough running venues around Perth, we figured he’d be an alright bet to run our quizzes.

Tristan is our Ops Guy and all around fixer, there’s no challenge he runs from so from time to time we just like to create problems to keep him/us entertained.
