Now based in Los Angeles, Frank continues to compose and perform for live audiences and on recordings.

Frank Marsico
Being a drummer first helped very much technically speaking since I already was able to hit things with sticks. But musically speaking, it would definitely have been much easier if I had arrived at the vibraphone via the piano.

Frank Marsico Music

Frankie’s Baja Marimba Mania debuted on the music scene at Tiki Oasis 11. The popular tiki party event occurred on the Pacific Ocean coast in laid-back San Diego, California.

The band is an independent project by vibraphonist Frank Marsico, created specifically for the annual tiki festival’s “South of the Border” theme.

Frank is a master on the vibes, and also plays drums, marimba, keyboards, and harmonica. The Baja Marimba Mania band includes Frank’s daughter Liv, percussionist for The Cold War Kids; Warren Giancaterino, former bassist for Sergio Mendes; and drummer Larry Klein.

Everyone loved the energy of this pretty dancer, a local yoga instructor who stopped by to enjoy the music.

Frank Marsico
I had to learn in my teens all of the harmony and theory that is required to play jazz vibes which is a lot harder and took a lot longer than learning how to hit things with sticks.
