    Subject: Frank Rocks

    I'm a entertainment security officer in downtown St. Louis, MO. I've seen a lot of venues come through, met some interesting people, but none quite as unique as Frank Morey. Most of what comes through town is just noise and non-sense. I stumbled onto Frank at a small smokey bar one night in a rather rough side of St. Louis. I'd never have heard a song of his if it weren't for a friend of a friend, who said hey there's this guy playing at this really small bar, he's pretty good, you should come out and listen. I was off work that night, and looking to have a few drinks, and thought, ah, what the hell. I went in, not expecting much. I had no clue that I'd be a die hard Frank fan for life. The bar, was Frederick's Music Lounge, which is some guys basement which has been converted into a bar. The place probably holds 50 people max. The place was smokey and the Pabst Blue Ribbon flowed freely. Some opening band was playing some cover song I had never heard of. They finally finished, and I pulled up a seat right in front of this 10'x5' stage, which was probably elevated about 1 foot off the ground. Scott (the drummer) starts to set up the oddest drum set and accessories I had ever seen. Joe unpacks his bass, and Frank lines up his ciggeretts and matches around the base of his mic stand. From the first note, I knew there was something special about this band. The raspy, smoke filled lungs of Frank peirced the hanging clouds of smoke and laughter. Everybody stopped what they were doing, and watched. With in minutes, people started bouncing their heads to the rythms of Frank's music. His songs are so real, everybody can relate. My buddy next to me said if you replaced the name in his song "Lucy" to his ex's name, the song would have been about him 100%. All of his songs are like that. I have to admit, I'm hooked. I'm a Frank Junkie. I have had his cd in my car stereo for the past few months, I can't take it out, I can't get enough. Since that first time, since that first show, I have yet to miss him when he comes into town. I'm constantly asking my friend, when is he coming back, I need to make sure I'm off work. I have to be there. See this is the problem. Frank is so awsome, so wonderfull, yet so far away. As I said before, I'm from St. Louis, MO. Which is quite a distance from Lowell, MA. I also mentioned that I work as entertainment security for large venues in the downtown area, and my boss has many many connections. I am talking with him more and more to get names of people Frank can get ahold of to schedule more gigs in the St. Louis area. The more Frank is in town, the better. Frank we love ya!
