Frankly Scarlet formed last year as three friends entertained their compadres on the back deck with an acoustic guitar and a laptop. It was soon realized that the only common song was Rockin' in the Free World; thus a rock band was born. Originally known as CHIP TURN YOUR BASS DOWN, the friends called upon other area musicians to join them. Lead vocalist, Scarlet Sebastian, has been singing for a long time and thought it time to bring the music back. Bassist, Chip Minks, found music later in life via Guitar Hero and is the band's self-chosen leader. Guitarist, Mike Smith, began playing as a means to be cooler, as if he weren't already cool enough. Guitarist, Mark Spencer, began playing at age 10 and has been spotted in several other bands over the years. He can be followed on his tour of surrounding areas with his solo acoustic show. Drummer, Chris "Thunderfoot" Gay has just recently added his experience to the band with his crazy drum beats and years of playing. The chemistry and eclectic tastes of the group quickly created a song list and tailored it to fit. Frankly Scarlet plays a wide variety of music from the 60s on. The band likes to have fun and not take itself too seriously, and prides itself on playing great music.
