Frank Kvinge hails from a little town called Sandnes in the southwest of Norway. As a young man he moved to USA where he studied at The Guitar Institute in California before moving to Chicago in 1989. Here he played with top names across a wide range of music, from blues greats like Son Seals and Otis Clay to the big bands of Patti Page and Bob Hope. He has also played with musicians from the bands of Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington.
Frank has been a professional guitar player since the age of 21, quickly adapting to every style imaginable from rock, R&B, to jazz (with his own band). He played the Chicago scene at the age of 22 working in blues clubs (and a country dive!) four to five times a week. He gained massive experience from playing and making friends with Jewish, Gypsy and Latino musicians and not least, the ‘brothers’ of the south side of Chicago.
