Telegram Frank | Acoustic / Underground / Germany
Telegram Frank started out as a request from concert promoters for Frank Vollmann (Frank The Baptist) to perform solo concerts of acoustic versions of Frank The Baptist songs. Songs were then written specifically for the Telegram Frank Traveling Medicine Show along with some rhymes and stories added in to tell the tale and cure whatever ails.
Telegram Frank is on the warpath to win a few hearts with a melody and his show has landed him on stages everywhere from NYC, L.A., London, Dublin, Milan, Florence, Rome, Berlin, Bratislava, Bucharest, Vilnius, Vienna, Oslo, Prague, Helsinki, to Thee Schauspielhaus in Leipzig and beyond.
Telegram Frank, who started on the strength of the reputation and modest fame of FTB, now has grown a fairly sizable following of his own and his bandmates in FTB have been pilfering his setlist for material and former bandmates are covering Telegram Frank tunes in various live bands.
Telegram Frank released a self titled album on Strobelight Records in 2009, it’s been a long time and people have been asking so it’s time for another. 14 tracks are in pre-production for a new Telegram Frank Album, he hopes to support it with a worldwide tour that never ends
