Hi my name is Frank Martinez, my friend calls me Frank.

I was born in Lee county Arkansas, near Aubrey population 170, in a two room shack about
two miles off the paved road. I was number 7 of 13 children.

I grew up in the area between Memphis Tennessee and San Antonio Texas. I joined the army
and was sworn in on my 18th birthday and was on a prop plane to Fort Polk Louisiana the
same day. I wound up at Fort Gordon Gogra for my army technical training, which is where
my music ambitions started.  I spent most of my off duty time at the USO club trying to teach
myself how to play guitar, fifty years later and I’m still trying to teach myself how to play

When I returned home form a thirteen month tour in Korea the first thing on my to-do list was
to start a band, which is exactly what I did...we played country and rock enroll in all the bars
in and around town. Within about two years I was totally burned out. I came to Iowa and
traded my Gibson 335 for an acoustic guitar and played mostly for fun and of cores to
entertain friends and impress girls.
Got into the DJ/MC business in the 90’S, with my wife (to be), fun, fun, fun, but then it
becomes work, work, work....   

Nowadays there are times when my wife Wanda and I have the opportunity to perform for
folks and when we get to sounding good enough to make people happy, I feel like I’ve done
something to make the world a better place. I like playing now, more than ever, since my wife
took up playing the fiddle and I’m retired from my regular job....wow we really get to fiddle
around...if you know what I mean!

Sandusky didn't make the gig. Those were the good old days.
