All about Frank

With their vibrant versions of sixties, seventies and eighties soul, disco and funk covers, Frank The Cat has built up a reputation as one of the most exciting live acts on the circuit today.

The ten piece band is made up of the tightest rhythm section, a three piece brass section to blow you away, two mighty fine girl singers and the soulful lead vocal talents of Roy Gayle.

Anyone who's seen Frank The Cat at one of their regular venues or at a private party will testify - you've just got to get on up - and dance...

Playing songs from such artists as: James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Kool and the Gang, Luther Vandross, Earth Wind and Fire, Al Green and Stevie Wonder.

Believe it or not, Frank?!...

Our Testimonials

  • Thank you so much to all of you for last night - a great band and fantastic song choices. My feet are killing me this morning - so much dancing!!! Jane X

    Jane, London
  • We had a great time - and so did the band! Really good sound looking forward to seeing you again at the next gig if not before.

    Chris & Jacquie
  • Having recovered somewhat, would you be so kind as to thank the band for helping make our party a great one. The sets were spot on, and we have heard nothing but praise from our gathering, most commonly used term was ‘awesome’ I believe. You guys have made another set of admirers whom I’m sure will be at future gigs.

    Bosko, London
  • We'd be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to all the band for their performance on Saturday and contributing to out celebration. All night people kept telling us how good the band were. We've put a link to your web page on our Facebook page. I know you all travelled quite a distance to find us, but you all seemed to be enjoying yourselves, too, which fitted the tone of the evening.

    Pat, Southend
