Frankie and the Defenders is a Northern California based original Rockabilly band dedicated to providing a rockin’ fun dance party and unforgettable good time. Nominated for Sammie awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018, we have a new CD “Women, Cars and Guitars” available on our website along with song samples, band member bios and photos.
