July 6, 2018 – Live Music Fridays: 5:30 to 8 p.m. Music Makers – 46 W. Main St., Waynesboro, PA. FRANK’n’BOB are an acoustic duo, known for stretching the boundaries of what an acoustic guitar can do. Often characterized as Piedmont blues highlighted with San Francisco improv, the genre is fingerstyle guitar (or finger picking) accented by soaring overlays. It’s all rock and roll, but one can hear anything from Ella Fitzgerald to Chet Atkins, ragtime to psychedelia, or blues to ballads at one of their performances. The skill and passion these gentlemen have for music is evident by the energy level at the venue as their show unfolds. Listeners frequently comment about the high energy level and the good feeling vibe everyone has at a FRANK’n’BOB event.
You can expect a wide variety of music including Little Feat, Bob Dylan, J.J. Cale, Eric Clapton, Rev. Gary Davis, Warren Zevon, Tom Waits, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Hot Tuna, Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, and that’s just the first set.
