Frank Eaton ~ Keyboards, Back-up Vocals
Frank Eaton is the Bo Jackson of the music world. His versatility and classical trainin’ are a huge asset to the band. Frank’s colorful palate of musical tastes ranges from Longhair Classical to Modern Jazz/Rock/Funk.
Frank first took to the keys in elementary school, startin’ with classical music then movin’ into jazz. He played tuba in high school and college and admits that his strong musical theory background helps in nearly every Whiskey Benders situation, especially learnin’ and writin’ new material.
Quiet by nature, Frank leaves his softspoken tendencies behind when he hits the stage with his keyboard, beltin’ out pitch-perfect harmonies alongside his brother.
When time allows, he takes to the skies with his commercial pilot’s license. He also enjoys the “rare occasion to actually see other bands play.”
On Frank’s personal playlist: Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, James Taylor, George Jones, Marty Robbins, Marshall Tucker Band, Allman Brothers, Norah Jones, Alison Krauss, Jaco Pastorius, Galactic, Toots and the Maytals, Bela Fleck, Tab Benoit and The Greyboy Allstars
