Frank Gallegos

Electric Washboard

Frankie G. plays electric washboard and has been known to occasionally belt out a soulful harmony. He first jammed with the Freedom Ledges at a Thai/tranny/blues club in the badlands of Hollywood.

Despite never having heard any of the songs before, Frankie kept the groove and Deacon Ledges took note. He’s a rare Los Angeles native and can tell endless boring stories about the Eastside before it was cool.

A professional actor, Frankie G. has amassed numerous appearances on television shows, feature films and live theatre. Frankie rhymes with hug me.
