Scott Porter from Frank says their music is 'quite eclectic... safely be called rock and roll'. I would like to add the word 'happy' to that, they are super lively and dynamic. Scott and his fellow Frank mates are coming to perform to benefit bkfarmyards on Aug.22nd at theCOMPOUNDbrooklyn + bk farmyards.
Formed in 2001, Frank is a band that rehearses in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn, New York, and plays shows wherever they are welcome, assuming all four members don’t have other plans they can’t get out of.
Frank’s music is quite eclectic, though overall it can pretty safely be called rock and roll. The band’s first two records (as a guitar/bass/drums three piece band) had somewhat disparate influences like The Replacements, The Clash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sam and Dave and The Minutemen. Frank’s current composition (guitar/bass/drums/keys-or-another-guitar) has a sound that includes most of the earlier influences, but tends to be more varied and textured, adding influences like Radiohead, Wilco, Frank Zappa, Funkadelic, Sonic Youth and Jimmy Reed into the mix.
To the extent such things impress you, Frank and its members’ previous bands have played with or shared the stage with the likes of Live, Goo Goo Dolls, They Might Be Giants, The Spin Doctors, The Band and God Street Wine. So we‘ve got that going for us.
