Frank On "Christmas Again"

Back in the early '80s I wrote a Christmas song and Paul Orofino (my friend and producer) and I recorded it, pressed it and released it. Apparently, it was a hit in the midwest four a couple of Christmases in a row but as we didn't have distribution, we had no idea that it was a success. We only found out about it when program directors tracked Paul down at the studio. Live and learn.

It's nearly 40 years since then and I decided that I wanted to re-record it (with the Bandoleros) with mostly acoustic instruments and change some of the lyrics. it was a lot of fun revisiting an old song. It was a little difficult getting the original recording and arrangement out of our heads but we gave it a good go and I'm happy with the results.
So, here is a little holiday reminder: Love still is the answer, no matter what holiday you celebrate.



Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah and a very Happy New Year!

Love from Frank, Paul and the rest of the Bandoleros

Hi All,
As most of you realize by now, I really don’t do much internet writing. I will, however, start writing more about what is going on with the Band.  Lots happening both here and in Europe.

Anyway, October 12, We will be at The Cutting Room. It will be our last Cutting Room Show for 2018 so please come on out and join us. Should be a kick. We’re doing some old songs that we haven’t done in ages as well as some brand new songs scheduled for a new CD.
Also, on October 13, Eddie and I will be doing an acoustic evening at The Towne Crier in Beacon. Starts at 6 (in the dining area). Hope we will see some of you.

I’ll be keeping everyone posted about new music, shows in Europe and brand new projects. Also, keep an eye out for some dates with Brickyard Saints (Frank Carillo, Simon Kirke, Eddie Seville and Danny Miranda)
Bye for now

GIG CANCELLED DUE TO A FAMLIY MEMBERS DEATH

My songwriting partner, cousin and friend, Frank Paul "Luke" Spagnuolo passed away this weekend. We were cousins attached at the hip. We wrote and made records together, traveled the country and the world and shared fantastic times. He was the most intelligent man I have ever known as well as a spiritually enlightened man. I will miss him. To his wife and two beautiful daughters I send love and prayers. I have been so lucky that he has been in my life..

Frank Carillo and Simon Kirke of Bad Company

I'm really excited about the gig coming up next week at the Towne Crier as I'm sharing the bill with Simon Kirke.  We're playing an acoustic show with Eddie Seville opening. Two of my favorite people!!

Simon and I have known each other for over 35 years. We got to know each other when my band, Carillo, opened for Bad Company for the entire Desolation Angels tour in 1979. He is one of the GREATEST drummers in music and a wonderful songwriter with a great voice. Plays pretty damned good guitar, too.

Through the years we would see each other occasionally, here in the States or in England, and when he came to the States to live we got to spend more time together writing songs. Not only is he a great musician but he is just a standup guy. No big ego,  and believe me, he has the cred! I mean, founding member of both Free and Bad Company, and more rock 'n' roll credits than you can imagine. 

A few years ago, my producer, Paul Orofino had an idea to put together a bunch of us to record. His idea was to have us get in a room, write a song and record right then and there. Simon, myself, Eddie Seville and Danny Miranda. it was one of the best experiences because there wasn't an ego in the room and we came out with 7 tunes that I'm really proud of. Simon played some kick-ass piano on one of the tracks, as well as his brilliant drumming. Eddie and I sang the leads and we all did backing vocals. Simon brought the snare drum that he used on all the "Free and Bad Company Records." Legendary!! 

Hope you all will join us at the Towne Crier in Beacon, NY



Frank Carillo and the Bandoleros

Frank Carillo and George Kooymans (Golden Earring) are releasing a new disc. The new CD, titled "On Location," will be released on the Universal label in The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.  George and Frank have been writing together on and off since the mid-'90s and, in between Frank's work with the Bandoleros and George's work with Golden Earring, they decided it was time for the CD to see the light of day!  Live shows in Europe will start in April for a few weeks and resume again in May.

The first single, "Blind Love,"; is the only song on the CD not written by George and Frank. "Blind Love" was written by Bandoleros drummer, Eddie Seville.  A video for "Blind Love" was shot in Rotterdam at the beginning of February as well as a video for another track, "Maybe Roses Never Die."

Frank Carillo and The Bandoleros are planning to record a number of acoustic tracks in March.  The new songs will be recorded using Millbrook Sound Studios' mobile rig.  The recording will take place at Om House and will include some surprise guests.  The Bandoleros new studio CD, "Rails To Kingdom Come," is scheduled for early summer release.  Stay tuned for updates.
