About Frankie Palermo
Hello! Here’s a little background information about myself. I have been a Professional DrumSet Performer for 48 years (since age 15) and a Professional DrumSet Instructor for 43 years. I started playing drums at the very young age of 5! I studied at The Chicago Drum School in downtown Chicago under Ernie Gadzos and Marshall Thompson for many years which I then followed up my studies with the world famous percussionist Bobby Christian. At age 15 I was excepted into the Chicago Federation Of Musicians Union and began to work locally as a Professional Drummer in all types of musical situations through the Musicians Union. After completing my studies I continued to perform both locally and on the road. Some of the venues that I have performed at were The Newport in Miami Beach, The Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, Caesar’s Hotel in New Jersey, The Bop Shop in Chicago, Joe’s Be-Bop Cafe on Navy Pier in Chicago, The Green Mill in Chicago, Frankie’s Blue Room in Naperville, IL., Fitzgerald’s in Berwyn, IL. and numerous Festivals and Concerts in Chicago and the surrounding Midwest. After 48 years of performing and after 43 years of teaching I am happy to say I am still at it and enjoying every minute of it!!
