Amendola, Blades & Parker Live at the Red Poppy Art House

September 7, 2007

Scott Amendola (percussion) and Wil Blades (B3) recently invited Jeff Parker (guitar) to San Francisco to play a couple of gigs. I was lucky enough to catch the trio performing live at the Red Poppy Art House on August 12, 2007. Jeff hails all the way from the Chicago music scene, and it was a real treat to have him play with Wil and Scott in such an intimate venue in the Mission.

It’s also worth noting that Wil just released his first CD titled Sketchy, so make sure to check that out sometime. Below, I’ve included a few photos from the trio’s show at the Poppy as well as one sample audio track from the first set of that night’s performance — a composition by Scott called Slow Zig, which can be found on his 1999 album The Scott Amendola Band.
