Frenz


Cleveland, 1972-4

Frenz was started by Bob and Jerry Bruno after the Bruno-Whittington-Bruno band. Other members included Randy Sabo (formerly of Silk) on keyboards and Kirk Yano, a 16-year old guitar whiz who lied about being 18 to get the gig. Frenz was a polished rock band who played the local club scene.

Frenz released one 45 ("Come On In"/"Where's the Promised Land"), recorded at Agency Recording, and got it released on Buddah records through Walt Masky. "Come On In" got some local airplay.

After Frenz, Kirk Yano got into the recording side of music (as well as continuing to play in bands such as the Baloney Heads) and later opened the long lived After Dark Recording studio. The Bruno Brothers returned with another band, Sketches.
