Our Prayers for Sammy's Family - November 5, 2008

"Early Tuesday morning November 4th, 2008 Sammy "Six" Gilkey lost his battle with cancer! I haven't been able to stop crying. I have been on an emotional roller coaster ride with Sammy going, and Obama being elected. Sammy was my good friend, and I loved him dearly. He was a good and caring man. He was an exceptional father who could not read himself, but made sure his children went to college. He will be greatly missed by me and my wife Susan. He was a great entertainer, and I wish the world could have known him. The CD we did on Sammy did not do him justice. He was very sick and on medication, most of the time we were recording. He wanted to leave something for his fans and his family, and I wanted him to have his wish. Sammy did not live to see Obama elected President of the United States of America, but he voted three weeks early for Obama. He was always ahead of the crowd. Go with God, Sammy Six. "We'll miss U bro" ! Love",... Frank Ace

Sammy Six in the hospital - October 13, 2008

Sammy was admitted to the
Colunbia Medical hospital last week. We dropped by, he was in good spirits. His sister Carolyn was with him.
We had a good visit and he was to be going home Sunday. We ask for your prayers, Sam is a good friend, with a good and gentle soul. I know you don't know him, but he is one in a million. His friendship has helped me deal with my own illness. So when you say your prayers, include my friend Sam just say "Lord I don't know Sam, but Frank said You do, so can you help him"?
I thank you!

Uncle Bo's In Topeka - September 16, 2007

Saturday night The Frank Ace Blues Band was in Topeka, Ks. At Uncle Bo's all I can say is it was a blues filled fun night. Uncle Bo's is a fabulous venue for the blues, I was very proud of Suki (the owner) and Topeka!!!!!
Lots of Frank's friends turned out.
Most of all his son Adrian, and Charles Alan Jones the Executive producer of Frank's CD "It's About Time" It was so great to see him again, and remake that connection. Also Larry Livgren another old friend of Franks, Larry played keyboards, I've got to do a CD on him! We were very impressed. I can't wait until they go back. I love Uncle Bo's...
Take care,

In the studio with Sammie 6 - August 14, 2007

We have been working with Mr Sammie Gilkey, up St. Louis way, on a new project. I have written a few choice R&B songs that will get him off to a good start. They will be his songs not Frank's and so far they sound good. Sammie has a great voice, and an exciting stage personality. We are very happy to have Sammie 6 on board.
Stay tuned for more info, and check out the pic's.
later!

Wallace & Ladmo - July 17, 2007

The Continentals were on "It's Wallace" Ladmo was there, but the billing came later. Frank was only about 17 or 18. The Continentals played a "Toga Party" with Bill (Wallace) and Ladmo.
Personally I always like his name "It's WALLACE"....:-)

Back in the Studio - July 12, 2007

This time we are in the studio recording an old friend of Frank Ace' Mr Sammie Gilkey, around St Louis, MO. he's known as Sammie 6. I have so many original songs, Ace asked me to give him a few. the only problem is he wants the same songs Frank has just recorded for his new album "On The Prowl"!
I'm going to have to think about this. Frank said it's O K with him, I'm not to sure. We will have to see what the producer says.
Untill next time,
"Seeya wouldn't wanta be yaa"!

1965 Pictures of The Frank Ace Combo - March 15, 2007

Well, it's about time Frank has sent us a picture of the 1963 thru 1965 band The Frank Ace Combo.
The members were: Thomas D. Price on bass guitar, William "Billy" Lentz on drums, Matthew Washington on sax, and Frank Ace on guitar. Check out those threads. That's the guitar BB King said he couldn't play, at the Key Club in Tucson, AZ. Frank bought another one after that. Thomas Price passed away in 1973, we lost Bill August 14th 2006. Frank and Bill had just found each other again after several years. "You will be missed Billy Beaver"! But you can still hear them on
"It's About Time" the re-release by Chueffa Records Llc.
Picture courtesy of Bill Lentz, and Frank Ace. Frank has said he's going to build a whole wing with Pic's from 1963 in Tucson, Arizona thru 1968, on www.frankace.com.
Can't wait until the construction is over.
