A Sonic Blast from the Past…
Classic Rock & Roll Instrumental Guitar featuring the music of The Ventures, Link Wray, Duane Eddy, plus 50’s & 60’s hits, Surf tunes, and of course those classic Beatle rockers!
I’ve been a resident of Fallbrook since 1999. When I first arrived I didn’t know any musicians in the area, so I began experimenting with using pre-recorded back-up tracks to accompany my guitar playing. This led to developing a jazz/Latin guitar sound which I called “Guitar Moods”. For the next 10+ years I played in and around the Fallbrook area, most notably playing for a year at the old Wildwood Restaurant and another year at Rio Rico in Bonsall. In addition, I played at several other restaurants in Fallbrook, as well numerous times at the Fallbrook & Cultural Center. I also played at private parties throughout the area.
After retiring “Guitar Moods” I developed a real love for instrumental rock n’ roll music from the late 50’s early 60's. This included artists such as The Ventures, Duane Eddy, The Shadows, Link Wray, and many of the surf bands that recorded in the pre-Beatle era of rock n’ roll; groups like The Chantays, The Lively Ones, The Pyramids, and the Astronauts. This is first generation rock n’ roll that evokes an era of simply having fun, along with a good beat to dance to.
Out of this has come my latest musical venture...a “virtual” band I call “Frankie & The Invisibles”. Playing electric guitar~along with high quality instrumental accompaniment which I personally arranged and developed~I’ve created a full band sound that works really well in many venues where a more “energized” sound is wanted, but full bands are not an option. Over the last 14 months I’ve played a variety of venues in Fallbrook, Bonsall, Escondido, as well as Carlsbad and Encinitas. In addition I’ve done many gigs in Old Town Temecula, which has developed a very dynamic music scene over the last few years.
As a guitar player for 45 years, I have immersed myself in a variety of styles from Rock n’ Roll, Blues and Jazz, and even Classical. The one constant has always been my love of the power and passion expressed through the guitar.
