Frank Sylvester

Bassist, Comedian, Fun Uncle

Frank is a Virginia native, growing up between Northern VA and the Shenandoah Valley. He is a classically trained musician and multi-instrumentalist, but never strays far from the bass clef. While Frank listens to everything from Motorhead to Mozart, Folk, Bluegrass, and Piedmont Blues music has always held a special place in his heart. He had the pleasure of attending numerous concerts and shows with his father, who is directly responsible for his love of “that old time music.”
