Charlie Hunter and drummer Scott Amendola (pictured) are coming to St. Louis to perform a duo show at 8:30 p.m., Sunday, April 13 at the Old Rock House.
The two have been playing together since the 1990s, when they were two-thirds of Hunter's trio, and will be touring in support of their new album Pucker, which came out in November of last year.
It's their second release together, following up on 2012's Not Getting Behind Is The New Getting Ahead, but this time, they're featuring Amendola's compositions instead of Hunter's. The duo last appeared in St. Louis in July 2012 at Jazz at the Bistro; for more about that, check out this video showcase post about Hunter that ran here on StLJN before the gig.
Tickets for Charlie Hunter and Scott Amendola at the Old Rock House are $25 reserved, $17 general admission, and will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. this Thursday, February 6.
