Guitar has been in Frank’s life since the age of five. Everything changed after seeing Jimi Hendrix live at his infamous 1968 Toronto show! It was the sound coming from this larger then life guitarist’s hands that some would say was a religious awakening musically for Frank.
For the past 30 years Frank has been a gigging machine, with over tens of thousands concerts to his credit! Frank has been known to perform over 250 dates a year with many toures throughout Canada and the USA. With his many endorsements, Frank has also been involved with clinic tours and many NAMM show (Anaheim, CA) appearances.
Frank has also had the opportunity to share the stage with some of the world’s greatest musicians in blues and beyond. Legends like James Cotton, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Jeff Healy, Robben Ford, Duke Robillard, guitarist Phil X (Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper)…..and some of the new blood like guitarists Phillip Sayce, Anthony Gomes and Sue Foley too name a few.
