Profile Information:

Relation to Blues music:

I play or do:
Other percussion
About Me:
I began performing 12 years ago and had no idea that the rudiments that I learned as a young teen while marching in an All Girl Drum&Corp in Iowa called the Née Hi's would come back to help me 23 years later in my life when I was chosen randomly from the audience to play a Washboard! I've yet to put it down! I am primarily a "Blues Artist" and able to play any and all genres!
I've had the honor of sharing the stage with So many Amazing Artists and many that I used to cheer and ooh from the audience! I will share a few, Magic Slim, Guitar Shorty, Trampled Underfoot, EG Kight, Bernard Allison, CJ Chenier, Terrance and Marcella Simien, The Kinsey Report, Ana Popavich, Susan Tedischi and many others! Never in life do we know what the Good Lord has planned for us and God knows I never expected such a Surprise at the age of 40 to play a Washboard!
My goals are to travel the world and share my love of music with as many folks as possible!!!

    Good Day,

    How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena200@yahoo.com.hk ) for the full details.

    Have a nice day

    Thanks God bless.

    Mr Frank.
