A fixture in the California Bay Area blues scene, brings 25 years of blues bass playing experience to School of the Blues. During those 25 years Frank has been a band member with many of the area's top blues bandleaders and performers. That list includes: Gary Smith, tommy Castro, Mark Hummel, Kenny Blue Ray, John Garcia, Mike Shermer, Sid Morris and many others. Through those associations Frank was commonly in the position to be asked to provide his bass playing skills to a long list of national touring blues performers. That list includes: Snooky Prior, Otis Rush, Johnny Heartsman, Nick Gravenites, Andy Just, Chris Cain, Rusty Zinn, Jr. Watson, Jackie Payne, Larry Davis, Mississippi Johnny Waters, Johnny Adams, Luther Tucker, Curtis Salgado and many others. Frank's instruction approach focuses on a solid understanding of the bass player's role in the blues and a deep study of the music's tradition. He takes this core of understanding and builds upon it to teach his students the role the modern-day blues bass player is asked to play. His students actively participate in local jam sessions and bands. Through Frank's comprehensive and caring approach, it's obvious when listening to his students that he is teaching the next generation the art of the blues bass.
