New Moon on Monday Single



Frank's first professional keyboard gig was with Southern California party band Overload (weddings, etc.) playing top 40 covers. He enjoyed the work but wanted to do some of his own music. He joined Midas Touch, who had moved to SoCal after winning the "Gong Show," and the band signed a deal with indie label Carnaval Records. Though they had a regional hit, “Nite Life,” written by Frank, the label was never able to capitalize on it. Frank decided to take more control and created his own indie label ReHitz. "I guess I really wanted to be my own artist, so I didn’t have to wait around for the next gig. I brought in featured vocalists and did electronic covers of my favorite hits." The inspired idea led Frank to hook up with Producer Robb Vallier (R. Kelley, Jon B. , Gin Blossoms) and put out an EP called “Re-Hitz Vol. 1.” As Frank tells it, “The remakes had to be fundamentally different than the originals. Otherwise, what's the point? The EP included interpretations of “Self Control,” “Lotta Love, “I Can’t Go For That,” “Dreams” and “Ladies Night.” Frank’s “re-hit” of Hall & Oates “I Can’t Go For That,” complete with several re-mixes by Giuseppe D, Scotty Boy and Tommy Boy, hit # 8 on the FMQB charts in 2007.

Working with radio promoter Tom Mazetta, Frank met Eric Alexandrakis, who was handling the publishing for the Duran Duran catalogue at the time. Eric introduced Frank to producer Anthony Resta, who has produced many legendary artists including Elton John, and Duran Duran. They decided to do a remake of New Moon on Monday, leading to the current release.
