By The Fish Fry


Kansas City, MO – Born in Bradley Arkansas, Frank Ace grew up in the South West. His grandmother taught him the rudiments of the blues. Moving to Los Angeles in 1982, he worked with Roger Collins, Joe Tex, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson and a host of other music legends. During the 1980s and 1990s, Frank travelled on the Chitlin' Circuit with Vernon Garrett. Ace still travels widely across the Midwest and Southwest entertaining audiences with his witty lyrics and good-time style of blues.
