The Frankadelics, a locally based, four-man ensemble fusing funk, blues, country, rock and R&B in a way that has to be heard to be appreciated, is alive and well and sounding better than ever.
The quartet (left and below) performed with Alan Weber and Frenz at the Cape May Jazz Festival last Saturday, Nov. 7, and can be seen on a monthly basis the House of Blues lounge and other locations. Fronted by Frank DiNunzio III on his customized 1947 Gibson electric guitar (signed by the late, legendary Les Paul), the group also includes Tony Day on drums, Chris Quaile on upright bass, and Larry Larrabee on blues harmonica.
DiNunzio, grandson of an innovative bass player with the same name who performed with the late, renowned marimba player Reg Kehoe, and a third-generation musician originally from Harrisburg, Pa., hopes to become involved with Armed Forces Entertainment, an adjunct of the Department of Defense that boosts morale and provides a variety of entertainment to U.S. military personnel stationed around the world.
“It would involve going out for two to four weeks to places like Greenland, Africa, Japan, all over Europe, South America, the Carribbean — it would be quite an experience, and a very worthy cause,” says DiNunzio.
