Frank Bango offers a boutique brand of songwriting In the Brill Building tradition, Where quality and craftsmanship come first. The purest form of melodic pop, with a dark edge and poetry.

This Question comes from Boston Mass. Long Time listener, first time caller:Question-I would like to support your CD effort via Kickstarter. Just wondering what happens to my contribution if you don't reach your $15,000.00 goal in time?
Good Morning Janet-Great to hear from you. Good question. The kickstarter campaign is an "all or nothing venture". This means that I'll only receive any of the pledges if I reach my enitre 15k goal. Kickstarter will take your credit card info through the http://Amazon.com payment system. When/If I reach my goal all the pledges will be processed at once (on september 3rd). If I don't reach my goal no one's pledge will be processed and life goes on (although with a little less sweet, sweet music in the world)

When I'm feeling less than stupendulous I turn to my favorite Licensed Massage Therapist,
Siobhan Towey L.M.T. http://www.nycmassageandhealing.com
For a limited time Siobhan has offered to collaborate with Frank Bango & Richy Vesecky in hopes of creating a tranquil space to bring you and your frazzled nerves back into balance. You'll begin your oddessey with a a beautiful Sincere Recording Company mantra hand delivered in a sealed envelope from Frank Bango. During your session you'll be encouraged to focus on the lovely healing power of the sound as you invite the powerful syllables into your mind. Meanwhile, you'll be treated to soothing background music and Touchy/Feely instrumentals compiled/composed by Frank Bango (yours to keep after the session so you can remember your trip). After your 60 minute session (a combination of Swedish/Deep Tissue &Shiatsu) you'll be welcomed back into this dimension with a Frank Bango signature Juice. Combining Frank's favorite blend of natural elixirs (with a tablespoon or two of my favorite Spirulina to give it some BANG!! POW!!!!). This package is only available in NYC.

Have Soup with Richy And Frank At The B&H Dairy of 2nd Ave NYC.
Let Richy and Frank recount some of their most colorful adventures culled from years of being outsiders on the inside more recently transformed into insiders on the outside. These two rascally scallywags arent't afraid to name names (and that goes double for twins). You'll not only come away with a full belly but a richer understanding of how they do that voodoo that they do so well.
note: if you've been banned from the B&H Dairy, like so many others, adjustments can be made.
