Frank was exposed to music at a very early age by his father who played trumpet in “Big Bands”. Influences included Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Al Hirt, Pete Fountain, and classical jazz masters such as Ahmad Jamal and Ramsey Lewis. Frank did the “classical piano lessons and recitals” thing in his teens, but soon found his interests tilting towards the 60’s. Frank has played in bands most of his life, touring the US and Canada, and has recorded numerous CD projects.
Currently, Frank is passionately involved in the Northwest Blues scene and performs regularly at Highway 99 Blues Club and Triple Door, as well as Festivals including Winthrop Blues Festival and Bumbershoot. In the past 6 years, Frank has found a home as a solo artist playing a variety of classical and contemporary songs on the grand piano in various settings. His repertoire extends from The Beatles, through Sinatra, Elton John, The Doors, Moody Blues, Heart, and includes favorite Movie Themes.
