“Frankie Randall is, without a doubt, one of the brightest men in the business!”—Julius La Rosa

“Frankie Randall is a consummate performer. He is an exquisite jazz pianist and a wonderful singer. I had the great pleasure to work with him on the Dean Martin Show and I’m very proud to call him a friend.”—Lainie Kazan

Singer Peter Gabriel had a hit song in the 1980’s titled BIKO which was about Steven Biko, a man who fought against apartheid in South Africa – ultimately costing him his life. In BIKO, there is a line Gabriel wrote that goes – “you can blow out a candle, but you can’t blow out a fire.” This is such a great metaphor and one that defines singer Frankie Randall.
