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 his larger than life guitarist’s hands that some would say was a religious awakening musically for Frank.


In 2017 Frank was Inducted as a Master Blues Guitarist in the Blues Hall Of Fame  (USA).


For the past 40+ 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 tours throughout Canada, USA & Europe. With his many endorsements, Frank has also been involved with clinic tours and many NAMM show (Anaheim, CA) appearances. For 2022 and beyond, Frank will continue to be a driving force in the Canadian & International Blues Scene!
