“I’m looking to find whatever’s next...for me.”
So says New York-bred and based musician and composer Peter Frank, who’s currently performing in select, intimate venues throughout the five boroughs of New York City, solo, and with his band, Lucky Flamingo. This Doo-Wop, folk-inflected rock ‘n roller has a unique, dual musical presence -- he’s as facile on woodwind instruments as he is as a guitarist and vocalist.
Peter has been involved with music since he realized what music was, and meant, as a soloist, a side man and a member of original bands. Given the current choice of remaining with a band or reinventing himself as a solo artist with (or without) backup, he chose the latter, and he hasn’t looked back. His music, his performances, reflect who he is in the moment, and showcase the bond he’s forged with his audience, musically and emotionally. Peter’s music is stripped down, it’s direct, it’s powerful, and it’s right there -- and that’s just what music and live performance should be.
