Frank Ace: Bio

Frank Ace Blues Band

Frank Ace....guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer, author... whichever hat (s) he's wearing, he's a "professional."  Yes like most real Bluesmen, Frank pitched watermelons and picked cotton growing up in Arizona during the 1940's and 1950's. Like most real Bluesmen, he traded "pickin" cotton for "pickin" a guitar, and since he was 16 years old has spent most of his life with his guitar in his hands. Whether he's performing his own compositions or old standards, his full, rich baritone will make you an instant fan.                                                                                                                                                                    

His "scratching" technique on the guitar adds a texture to his sound that is unique and memorable. From Blues to R&B and from Rock to Country, Frank's styling transforms across musical lines. Frank spent many years touring, whether as bandleader for himself or other entertainers, USO shows, cruise ships, hotel circuits or Job Corps. He has graced the stage in all 50 states and four continents. With a wealth of experience performing in such a wide array of venues, Frank transforms his show to appeal to the immediate audience.         

Rodney Cunningham (bass), Orlando Zuniga (saxophone), and Mick Munoz (drums) and David Bynes on keyboards and harp joined Frank in 2015.  All are seasoned musicians, and have varied backgrounds in Blues, Country, Rock, and Jazz. Their combined individual talents create the unique sound of the Frank Ace Blues Band
