What is Hip? TOP by The Franklin Brothers

Hailing from New London, CT, the Franklin Brothers Band consists of brothers Jay Franklin (keyboards and vocals) and Carl Franklin (guitars and vocals) alongside a killer line-up of impeccable local musicians. The current configuration includes Dave Cafro on trumpet, Rob Funk on trombone, Cedric Mayfield and Gary Boigen on saxes, Tom DaFaria on drums, Nick Cancelmo on bass, local legend Che Cartafalsa on percussion, and Nichelle Rollins on lead and backup vocals.That’s a lot of talent on one stage! FUNK, ROCK & SOUL!!!
“Sophisticated, polished, intelligent pop music. If you were separating the genetic twine of their music, you’d find cellular imprints of Steely Dan, Toy Matinee, Atlanta Rhythm Section and Toto along with a sneaky, evocative dash of New Orleans seasoning.”
Rick Koster, Peter Huoppi. The New London Day
