Bio

Hi! My name's Frank Jones, although I sometimes perform under the name of "Frankie Jay." I'm originally from Ft. Worth, Texas, but grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Since 1976 I've lived and worked in the Reno/Tahoe area of Northern Nevada

I began my music studies on piano at age 7 in Fort Worth, but as a teenager in Albuquerque I switched to guitar at age 13. I performed my first professional gig at 17 as second guitar with Freddie King. At 21, I moved to San Diego, and for several years performed with Rock and Country Bands before moving to Lake Tahoe to begin my stint as a casino player with various bands and shows. I started a small digital project recording studio in the 90's as a place to record my original work and do finished recordings for young songwriters. (Some of these will be added to the site at a later date) I've also done commercial and soundtrack recording as well.

These days I seem to find myself doing mostly Blues, and am thoroughly enjoying immersing myself in this genre. I don't travel as much anymore, so you'll mostly find me playing in the local clubs in the Reno, Sparks, and Lake Tahoe music scene, unless I'm out doing my second favorite thing in the world, riding my motorcycle. (A funny thing how guitars and motorcycles just seem to go together!)
