Music types: Americana
Description:
An original jam band from northwest New Jersey, Mike Frank & Friends' electric/acoustic blend of rock, alternative, modern rock, reggae, jam, jazz, blues, and bluegrass (just to name a few!) create a refreshingly new yet familiar style that is full of rhythm and melodies that are great for dancing and singing along to. Combined with their undeniable ability to play in the moment, their live performances include several improvisational jams which take every song to a different place each time. Listeners also get a glimpse inside the world of Mike Frank through his lyrics, as he poetically illustrates his observations of life, love, music, and the struggles within oneself.

Formed in the summer of 2008, the band was put together by Mike Frank with the intent to record an album of songs he had written and performed at a variety of Open Mics and jam sessions throughout northwest New Jersey, using his friends and fellow musicians to help record the album. After the completion of Yellow Rays, the band continued to play shows and write new music, building a solid local fan base, and subsequently becoming known as Mike Frank & Friends. Several tracks from Yellow Rays can be heard on several local college and public radio stations throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well a variety of music streaming sites, such as Last.fm, and the album can also be purchased for download at all major online web music outlets including iTunes, Amazon.com, and cdbaby.com.

Mike Frank & Friends continues to build their fan base throughout the tri-state area, and are currently in the studio, recording their sophomore album You Take The High Road, due to be released in 2011.
