Erik Deutsch, John Shifflett, Scott Amendola Trio
Erik Deutsch, John Shifflett, and Scott Amendola have been playing as a trio on and off for 6 years now. Erik lives in NY but comes out west just enough to make this trio feel like a band. From the first note things gelled. We were on a gig a couple years back and Erik just started playing tunes from bands like the Beatles, The Who, obscure pops classics, etc. and we all just launched off into them with reckless abandon only to realize that we lived in this common zone of anything goes, and any TUNE goes. We share the appreciation for pop music and enjoy reinterpreting it with our own voices. We also enjoy playing our original music so there's a nice balance of both worlds that intertwine and help us all arrive at a very interesting place. Whether it's Mr. Bojangles, or one of our originals, the music is always unpredictable. But the listener is brought along for the ride as the 4th band member.
When & Where
DUENDE is a collaboration between Chef Paul Canales and impresario Rocco Somazzi, born from a common passion for creative soulful food, artisanal wines, beers and spirits and eclectic improvised music and art.
Our performances take place in a dedicated room, and our stage is not visible from our bar & dining room. This provides a more focused listening environment. If you're planning to dine with us please allow enough time to eat before showtime.
