PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM CRIS CUNNINGHAM REGARDING LIVE MUSIC AT FRANK & LOLA’S
“Sunset doesn’t last all evening.”
Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve reached the end of a joyous road. I have accepted a job that will require me to relocate and as a result, we will no longer be offering live music at Frank & Lola’s. I approached Adam & Katy in 2008 with an idea and a promise to handle all aspects of live music - from booking to promotion to day of show logistics. Once I have left the state, I won’t be able to continue honoring this commitment.
The memories stemming from these shows will last a lifetime. These four brick walls have absorbed (and bounced around) some of the most amazing music created by humble, unassuming artists from all across this vast country. We will always be grateful for what they have brought us and it has been our pleasure taking care of them.
To the patrons, thank you for your attention and your support. One of the comments I most often receive from musicians performing here is that regardless of the size of the crowd, those in attendance are always engaged with the music. Frank and Lola’s has a reputation in the live music community as a place where the music and the musician is appreciated by staff and audience alike and I’m thankful that we have been able to create a comfortable atmosphere for so many for as long as we have.
