Frankie and the Pool Boys Announce August 2010 Tour

Submitted by Brian on February 25, 2010.
Show Announcements
Received from Sean @ Double Crown Records:

Frankie and The Pool Boys, the Bay Area surf super group, has announced plans for an August 2010 tour. Eight shows are being scheduled with stops in San Francisco, the Central Valley, Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles and Orange County. There will also be radio performances and record shop in-stores as the schedule allows.

Frankie and The Pool Boys is a project band put together by Pollo del Mar's lead guitarist and songwriter Ferenc Dobronyi. The concept was to get together some of the best players in the surf genre and have a lot of fun. Members from the bands The Ventures, Slacktone, The Surf Coasters, The Madeira and many more contributed performances to the 2008 self titled release. It was never the intention to try and take the band on the road but an invitation to perform at the 2010 Surf Guitar 101 Convention in Orange County got the ball rolling and Dobronyi began to assemble a touring unit.

The live band will feature Dobronyi on guitar with the incredible Naotaka Seki from Japan's Surf Coasters on drums. (This will be especially interesting as Seki has just started to learn English!) Also on guitar will be Danny Snyder, and on bass Tony Bald from the Bay Area's The TomorrowMen. Karen Dobronyi from Meshugga Beach Party will be playing keyboards. Of course, any of The Pool Boys who performed on the CD will be asked to join the band on stage.

The Frankie and The Pool Boys CD (released on Double Crown Records) was very well received and quickly sold out it's first pressing. Davy Peckett of New Gandy Dancer said, "This is quite definitely our album of the year - my God is it good!" and Dan Forte of Vintage Guitar called the CD a whacked out, throbbing party album.
