But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Friday, March 4 – 7:30pm
The SticklerPhonics

The SticklerPhonics is some special kind of Modern Micro Brass Band… Jazz, Groove, Funk and much more! Drums, saxophone and trombone? Why not? With each player in The SticklerPhonics, the concept of working as a unit is crucial. Playing in the pocket, giving each other space, getting the audience to move… Like nothing you’ve heard. Playing original music. Let’s DO this.

Scott Amendola – drums/percussion/electronics
Raffi Garabedian – tenor saxophone
Danny Lubin-Laden – trombone

$20 cash cover charge. Doors open 10 minutes before showtime.

No project better displays Amendola’s big ears and musical ambitions than “Fade To Orange”, an orchestral piece commissioned as part of the Oakland East Bay Symphony’s Irvine Foundation-funded New Visions/New Vistas initiative. The roiling work premiered to critical acclaim at Oakland’s Paramount Theater on April 15, 2011.

As a sideman, Amendola has performed and recorded with a vast, stylistically varied roster of artists, including Bill Frisell, John Zorn, Laurie Anderson, Mike Patton, Mondo Cane, John Scofield, Pat Metheny, Josh Redman, Cibo Matto, John Dieterich from Deerhoof, Cyro Baptista, Wadada Leo Smith, Bruce Cockburn, Madeleine Peyroux, Joan Osborne, Jacky Terrasson, Shweta Jhaveri, Phil Lesh, Kelly Joe Phelps, Larry Klein, Wayne Horvitz, Johnny Griffin, Julian Priester, Sonny Simmons, Pat Martino, Larry Goldings, Paul McCandless, Rebecca Pidgeon, Joe Goode Dance Group, and many more.
