Frankly Scarlet formed last year
as three friends entertained their compadres on the back deck with
an acoustic guitar and a laptop. It was soon realized that the only
common song was Rockin' in the Free World; thus a rock band was
born. Originally known as CHIP TURN YOUR BASS DOWN, the friends
called upon other area musicians to join them. Lead vocalist,
Scarlet Sebastian, has been singing for a long time and thought it
time to bring the music back. Bassist, Chip Minks, found music
later in life via Guitar Hero and is the band's self-chosen leader.
Guitarist, Mike Smith, began playing as a means to be cooler, as if
he weren't already cool enough. Guitarist, Mark Spencer, began
playing at age 10 and has been spotted in several other bands over
the years. He can be followed on his tour of surrounding areas with
his solo acoustic show. Drummer, Chris "Thunderfoot" Gay has just
recently added his experience to the band with his crazy drum beats
and years of playing. The chemistry and eclectic tastes of the
group quickly created a song list and tailored it to fit. Frankly
Scarlet plays a wide variety of music from the 60s on. The band
likes to have fun and not take itself too seriously, and prides
itself on playing great music.

inspiration comes from his uncle, who would bring his guitar to
