Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community

Scott Amendola
drums, percussion, composer, band leader
Being born in New Jersey, USA could only lead to one thing for drummer Scott Amendola-- moving. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 1991, Scott landed in San Francisco in 1992, where he met guitarist Charlie Hunter, with whom he joined forces along with Will Bernard and John Schott to form the innovative band TJ Kirk (Warner Bros.). A year and a half later Scott joined Charlie's own band, with whom he has recorded and toured extensively. Scott can be heard on the critically-acclaimed TJ Kirk's eponymous debut and on their Grammy-nominated second release "If Four Was One" (Warner Bros.), as well as on Charlie Hunter's "Return of the Candy Man," "Natty Dread," and "Ready...Set...Shango!" (Blue Note) and also "The Oranj Symphonette plays Mancini" (Gramavision/Ryko).
