Frank’s musical motivation? “I was saved from myself by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ 10 or so years ago. At this point, I knew that the gift I was given was for a purpose and no longer just for entertainment. I returned to my bluegrass and country roots as well as Christian contemporary praise and prefer to stay here.”
As the owner of a local recording studio, Michael strives for the utmost in professionalism as he works with venues to book the band and adheres the following mindset; “We truly appreciate the opportunity to showcase the gifts with which God has blessed us and it is our passion to share that with as many people as we can.”
Another musical group Michael is actively involved with is his church’s praise band. He plays guitar for Sunday morning services as well as bassoon for their passion plays. Michael is currently a senior at Youngstown State University studying Mechanical Engineering.
