Frankie is the primary song writer in The Volcanics. He started playing music with his friends and younger brother back in high school. After spending all of their money on guitars, amps, and instruments, none of them had money left over to buy a P.A. As a result (along with none of them really knowing how to sing), they formed a surf band. Eventually Frankie started The Volcanics and has been at it ever since. Besides teaching them how it's done on the surf guitar, “Professor Frankie” also teaches middle school math
Before becoming a teacher, Frankie was a butcher at a supermarket.
