BandRockFunk

The Franks are a four piece original rock band from Massachusetts, heavily steeped in the worlds of funk, reggae, dub, hip hop and jazz.

Biography

The Franks have sculpted a unique, explosive sound which has been evolving and expanding since Brian Chaffee and Keith Clark originally formed the group in the summer of 2002. Drawing on the deep pocket of funk, the hard hitting drive of rock, and the rhythms of reggae they've reached a fever pitch with their new self titled disc set for release October 9th. These 10 road tested tunes showcase their commitment to their craft. Brian's soaring, soulful vocals lead the way for Keith's driving and tight rhythmic guitar style and are embellished by Mark's solid, imaginative bass lines capped by Paul's driving and punishing drum grooves.
