Scott Amendola, born February 6, 1969 in New Jersey, is an American jazz drummer, best known for his work in the San Francisco Bay Area.

After studying at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, Amendola relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, gaining popularity in the 1990s as a member of T.J. Kirk — the group's second album received a Grammy Award nomination.

Amendola has led his own bands and trios which have included Nels Cline, Jenny Scheinman, Jeff Parker and John Shifflett[5] as well as Ben Goldberg and Devin Hoff. Often favoring guitarists he has toured with Bill Frisell and Kelly Joe Phelps and recorded with Pat Martino, Jim Campilongo, G.E. Stinson, Nels Cline and Tony Furtado. He is an original member of the Larry Ochs Sax & Drumming Core. He has been a session percussionist for Noe Venable, Carla Bozulich and Odessa Chen.
