The Music!

Part of the Frankie 100 mission is to bring Frankie’s music to the stage throughout the festival. The line up of music includes some of Frankie’s very favorite contemporary sing bands and we’re particularly excited that the Saturday night ball will include continuous live music performed by George Gee and David Berger’s Big Bands trading off sets, as would have been the case at the Savoy Ball Room!
