      Frankie started playing piano at the age of four, had his first group at the age of 13 and started playing for monetary gain at the age of 15. Nightclubs were on the agenda at the age of 18 and with the help of a penciled in moustache he was able to gain entrance to most of the clubs in the Sacramento area. 20 was the age to hit the road. Frankie stayed on the road for the next 13 years doing what he loved, playing music. He started in the Nevada Circuit but graduated to playing every corner of the United States. Seattle to Santa Monica, Buffalo to Marco Beach, Toronto to Scottsdale working with groups of new , old and no fame, and it was all fun! When Music gets in your blood it will be there forever, and its good!
