About Author Frankie Avalon:

If you can't remember a time when Frankie Avalon wasn't a part of your life, you aren't alone. This talented performer can look back on a career that spans three generations of music, television and motion pictures which he feels is due primarily to the loyalty and trust of his audience. Frankie's years as a "Teenage Idol" have been succeeded by maturity and professionalism. He is currently one of the busiest nightclub performers in the country, playing the nation's finest supper clubs and headlining top Las Vegas Hotel Main rooms. His motion picture career has already spanned some thirty films.

Frankie was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania September 18, 1940. "It seems like every young kid in Philadelphia wanted to be a singer," recalls Frankie. "I started as a musician...a trumpet player in the beginning. But, when I picked up the paper one day and read about Jimmy Darren who was from my own neighborhood and school, making a successful career for himself, I decided that I could do it just as well."

Even before the age of 10, Frankie seized every opportunity to enter local amateur contests, winning one after another. On his own initiative, Frankie began taking lessons, and continued his musical studies long and hard through the years that followed. One of his instructors, a member of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, volunteered to teach the young trumpet virtuoso after hearing him play. Although he downplays the fact, Frankie Avalon was a child prodigy who was good enough to make guest appearances as a trumpet player on The Perry Como and Jackie Gleeson Television Shows before he was 13 years old. Frankie has a long string of Gold Record Million-Seller singles and albums. In 1959 alone Frankie had 6 solid hits that were in the top 40 and his music became one of the defining sounds of the "Pre-Beatles" Rock and Roll.

Never one to settle for one career, Frankie's 30 motion picture credits are quite amazing. Frankie's starring roles in the highly successful "Beach Party" film series, are perhaps, quickest to recall. They include "Beach Party", "Muscle Beach Party", "Beach Blanket Bingo", "Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine", "Bikini Beach", and "How to Stuff a Wild Bikini". However, Frankie, who studied with Wynn Handman in New York and Estelle Harmon in Los Angeles, has always been proudest of his dramatic roles in "The Dark", "The Alamo", "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", "Guns of the Timberland" and his comedic talent in "Skidoo", "Sail a Crooked Ship", "I'll Take Sweden", "Ski Party" and "Sergeant Deadhead". In his film for Columbia Pictures "The Take" co-starring Billy Dee Williams, Eddie Albert and Vic Marrow, Frankie showed not only his dramatic ability, but also his capacity for working "against type".

Frankie loves making movies, but his soul is fed by live audiences. Because of this, his nightclub career has taken him around the world, headlining the finest supper clubs and niteries. Frankie has played to sold out houses in the best rooms in every major city in America including The Fontainebleau and Eden Roc Hotels in Miami Beach, Rainbow Grill and Copacabana in New York. Frankie has become one of the few international entertainers that are loved worldwide and he has toured where other artists might not be immediately accepted. His appearance at the International Festival of Stars in Romania marked only the second time that an entertainer from the United States had performed in that Iron Curtain country since World War II. (The other performer was Louis Armstrong).

His father's career as a butcher and his mother's mastery of traditional Italian cooking started a lifelong love of Italian food and joy of cooking. Frank and his Kay celebrated their 51st Wedding Anniversary in January. They have eight children (born within a ten year period) and ten grandchildren. All the children live within a ten mile radius of their California home so family dinners are large, often and normally Italian.
