Creosote is the accordion duo of Jamie Maschler and Gabriel Rodrigues. Together they play a dynamic array of original and world music. Maschler and Rodrigues are both seasoned musicians and have individually and collectively mastered their craft of performing, arranging and composing on the accordion. Expect to hear clever yet elegant versions of new and old Brazilian and world music tunes. The instrumental duo recently released their first self-titled album.
The evening will also feature a performance by jazz accordionist Frank Petrilli. Based in Los Angeles, Petrilli is highly active in both the accordion and wider jazz communities on the West Coast, and throughout the US. A protégé and close friend of the late great jazz accordionist Frank Marocco, Petrilli has performed with renowned artists like guitarist John Chiodini, at top venues such as Herb Albert’s Vibrato Grill, and at many of the major accordion festivals and clubs in the US. In 2011, he appeared on the TV series Mad Men and in 2012, recorded his debut CD, Totally Frank.
