Frank Marocco’s musical career began in Chicago, Illinois where at age 17 he took first place in a Music Festival Contest. He performed his winning solo with Mark Weber and the Chicago Pops Orchestra playing before several thousand people in Soldiers Field.
Frank spent the next few years traveling all over the country with his Quartet playing the top hotels and clubs in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe and Palm Springs. But Hollywood was beckoning. Being close to the movie and the TV studios offered opportunities never available in the Midwest.
He later worked with the Les Brown Band and Bob Hope, working on Mr. Hope’s television shows and traveling with him around the world entertaining troops.
In recent years, Frank has done a great deal of studio session work on the West coast and has become one of the most recorded accordionists in the world. Frank has played on hundreds of movie soundtracks, TV series and specials, records and commercials. He was nominated eight years in a row as most valuable player by the National Academy of Arts and Sciences (N.A.R.A.S.).http://roadtomarocco.com/home.html
