Hot Cuts Volume One
Guitar & Vocals Hi everyone - My name is Frank and I'm the lead singer and song writer of The Green Marbles. Our music is simple, upbeat, positive, and I'd like to think enjoyable. The group as a whole came together for three main reasons, one - to have some fun doing something we loved to do, two - to encourage others through music, and three - center our lives and others around something larger than ourselves, 'God.' Peace - : ) Frank Bass My name is Don Allen (Lt. Marble). I'm currently single (although sharing a nice relationship with a cute blonde. Ha Ha!). I have a 6-year-old son that is my best buddy. I hope to pass on what musical talent I have to him. He already has perfect pitch on his own. I have many years as a musician mostly self-taught, I've played bass and guitar both in bands and churches I've attended. It's hard to choose a band or solo mentor. My tastes can be pretty diverse. I do take a good interest in Sting and Vertical Horizon. They share positive lyrics and good grooves. As a musician I have concern to iterate positive themes to the public. Who wouldn't want to be recognized as a musician, but giving people something to think about has great perks. I've been through many of the same struggles that many are going through. I hope that through the venue of music we can share the solutions to ease some of the pain in a cruel hurting world. Drums Hi. My name is Eddie Stanko and I'm the drummer for the Marbles. I tend to be a little on the quiet side, so I let my drums do the talking for me. I have never been content to just listen to music. I always felt like I wanted to be a part of it. When I was little, my dad and I would get out coffee cans and pencils and play along with records . At age fifteen, I decided to take lessons and learn how to play properly. I enjoy playing and listening to all kinds of music - jazz, metal, blues, classical, it all depends on my mood. Some of my other interests are playing and watching hockey (I'm a big NY Ranger fan). I love cars (especially ones from the fifties), Formula One racing, hanging out with buster, my ol' slobbering brown dog. Being married to my wife is one of the highlights of my life and I'd be lost without her. I thank her and my parents for all their support, sacrifices and encouragement throughout the years. Above all, I have to thank God for all that he has given me and hopefully, I can give something back by playing my music.
