Frank Secich - The Happy Dog at The Euclid Tavern 7.21.2017

Published on Jul 23, 2017

After 50 years in rock and roll you'd think Frank Secich would have seen and done it all - and you'd probably be right. He first came to prominence in the early-70s power pop band Blue Ash before joining up with Stiv Bator (Dead Boys, The Wanderers, Lords of the New Church) for his solo project 'Disconnected' for Bomp! Records. After the short-lived Club Wow with Jimmy Zero, also of the Dead Boys, Jeff West and Billy Sullivan, Frank set out to put together a new band and The Deadbeat Poets were born, sounding like a 'grown-up' Blue Ash for the current era. And now, Blue Ash have been recording and touring with Frank and the original lead singer and the Poets have also been recording, so both of those groups will have new material soon. Frank has also published a book, 'Circumstantial Evidence,' which is also the name of his current tour with Room Full of Strangers around the country, in which he regales us of stories of his youth, his bands and his experiences. And when he does these acoustic performances he tells a story about the song he's doing - many of which can also be found in the book.
