Known for his past inexhaustible performance schedule of corporate events, weddings, private parties, pool parties, conventions, clubs, bars, tiki huts, backyards, schoolyards, restaurants, cruises, street performances, resorts, subways, and any other conceivable venue, Frankendread’s mission of presenting island music anytime, anywhere, anyplace has served him well.
Since starting a career in island music in 1989 as a touring reggae drummer, lead vocalist, keyboardist and bandleader in Atlanta, Frankendread’s performances have spanned 17 countries and 43 states. During the years 1992, 1993, and 1994 he was named a “Caribbean Vocalist of the Year”.
During the ’96 Olympics, Frankendread performed 39 times in 19 days and wound up on Japanese radio.
To gain “yard” credibility Frankendread performed at the Starfish Trelawny resort in Falmouth, Jamaica in 1999 fronting a Jamaican reggae band. He garnered heavy attention and acclaim by singing Bob Marley, Jacob Miller, and Gregory Isaacs, and Peter Tosh tunes without a flinch.
In 2001, Frankendread added steel pan to his arsenal and in 2002 performed an impressive 403 times in 365 days between Tennessee, Georgia, New York, Canada, New Mexico, Missouri, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois.
In Chicago, Frankendread has performed solo, duo, and trio and with his band for the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Mancow, Steve Wilkos, and way too many more to list. Add performances inside Soldier Field and outside Wrigley Field as Cubs fans chant “No Woman, No Cry” sometimes as often as “Take Me Out To the Ballgame” and the picture is clear- ‘dis mon bring da island music!
