Soiree Accordeon le 18 Septembre

Frank Petrilli from Los Angeles will perform for the SFAC on September 18, 2016 at 2:PM.

Frank started to play the accordion at age 7 and by 16 he was performing professionally. In 2006, Frank began intensive study with the great jazz accordionist Frank Marocco. They developed a close friendship and Frank Petrilli became Frank Marocco’s protégé. This association ended far too soon at Frank Marocco’s untimely death in March of 2012.

In May of that same year, Frank had the distinction of being invited to play in the stead of the lateFrank Marocco, who was originally scheduled as the featured performer at the Accofestival 2012 accordion competition in Kiev.

Frank was also on the panel of judges for the jazz portion of the competition. Immediately following, he performed at the Frank Marocco Memorial Concert held in Castelfidardo, Italy. If you are a fan of the TV series Mad Men you may have caught Frank in a cameo appearance as a strolling accordionist in October 2011.

On his debut CD Totally Frank you will definitely hear the influence of Frank Marocco, but Frank Petrilli plays his own style that includes more focus on Latin grooves. Pat Sentator, booking agent and artistic director of the Vibrato Jazz Club in Los Angeles had this to say about Frank: « Like his mentor, Petrilli gives new life to the accordion with impeccable phrasing and a smooth, fluid style.  »

The concert will take place at:
Oyster Point Yacht Club
911 Marina Blvd.
South San Francisco, California

The San Francisco Accordion Club is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization whose purpose is to enhance, promote and stimulate an appreciation for the accordion within the membership and throughout the general public.
