It's Jeanne Brei, the vocalist from Las Vegas with VERY sad news -- I
don't know how many musicians on the list knew Frankie -- (he moved to Las
Vegas from Oakland a few years ago) and he had a big band in Northern
California as well -- but he died last night. He was a wonderful man who
loved entertaining crowds and leading a big band and he will be VERY missed
in Las Vegas.
