Amendola vs. Blades opening for Lettuce @ The U.C. Theater! Wil Blades: Hammond B3, Clavinet. Scott Amendola: drums, percussion, electronics. "Their live performances are fun and playful, yet deeply musical." - SFGate "The chemistry between Amendola and Blades have nurtured is no illusion: each anticipates the other's movements with uncanny precision and clearly both love to dig into a groove, but it's not just a matter of repetition, but progressively intricate interaction" -AllAbout Jazz Lettuce: For more than two decades, Lettuce have brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency and mastery of beat. Now, on their fourth studio album Crush, drummer Adam Deitch, guitarists Adam Smirnoff and Eric Krasno, bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes, keyboardist Neal Evans, saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and trumpet players Eric Bloom and Rashawn Ross deepen that sound by channeling the sonic freedom and infectious energy of their incendiary live show.
