Turning Into A Butterfly - Zachary Ostroff & Scott Amendola: January Residency @ The Ivy Room! 4 Wednesdays at the awesome Ivy Room! Different sets every week! Special guests! etc. Going to be a blast! So, what is "Turning Into A Butterfly" you ask? Well, let me tell ya... SUPER stoked to have Julie Wolf with us! YAY! Tonight Louis Cole from the band KNOWER will guest with us... Gonna be a BLAST! ...so a little about "Butterfly..." Is this rock’n’roll? Is it jazz? Is it Japanese, electronic Zydeco music? Turning Into A Butterfly is a metamorphosis (or should we say, meta-bro-phosis) of the dual forces of Scott Amendola and Zach Ostroff. Their original compositions for finding love in a disastrous world, back-to-back covers of Britney Spears and Ray Charles, World War II ballads, and spontaneously improvised soundscapes coalesce into streams of constantly-evolving, heartfelt, booty-grooving music. When you read how Wikipedia defines Scott Amendola as a drummer, electronic musician, and orchestral composer as “central to the Bay Area music scene,” a certain degree of skepticism is understandable. But when you hear him play, you hear a drum master whose virtuosity only serves his desire to create genuinely felt music; his music transforms the desire for answers into a seeking of questions. How do we define Zach Ostroff? “Bassist? Guitarist? Singer? Film composer?” He answers these questions with his latest obsession, the Bass VI, an historically neglected instrument that is precisely one octave lower than a standard guitar. Wielding this axe, he turns into bassist/guitarist/vocalist/sonic-explorer all at once. Humans can find great joy in the most epic and trying of times. Sometimes, all it takes is the mutual trust of two musical risk-takers. That is what Turning into a Butterfly hopes to find.
