Frankie has been playing drums since the age of nine, under the guidance of mentor Bobby Rondinelli. Alongside his teacher, Frankie is strongly influenced by John Bonhman, Justin Kier, Cozy Powell, and Tommy Aldridge, just to name a few. Frankie has been using Paiste cymbals for over ten years, and currently uses the 2002 and 900 series when playing. Coming from Long Island, Frankie has had the honor of playing with a plethora of bands as well as having the opportunity to open up for Foghat, Mike Del Guidice, and Big Shot (Billy Joel's supporting band). He has also played in a variety of large-scale venues on Long Island and in New York City such as The Bitter End, Irving Plaza, and The Paramount. Recently, Frankie joined the New York City-based rock band Brand of Julez where he just completed his first 7-week tour across America supporting The Texas Hippie Coalition on their 2018 Year of the Bull Tour. He will be heading out again to join ORGY on their 2018 Bring Your Army Tour.
