I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Suncoast Blues/Twelve Bar Rag
Blues Stalker (By Monte Adkison)

A blues musician once told me that in the music industry we all are spokes in a wheel holding it together in order for it to revolve. Musicians, fans, promoters, disc jockeys, producers, sound engineers, agents, blues societies, stage managers, club owners, publicists and others all are an intricate part of the music we love. Many people “behind the scenes” work unselfishly to keep the blues alive. One of those “spokes” happens to be one of the most respected in the business of independent radio and marketing promotion, Frank Roszak. Frank has been and still is an engineer, mixer, producer, promoter, marketing wizard and radio persona extraordinaire. His experience and versatile background has made him one of the essential people to know in the blues business. Born in Brooklyn, Frank’s career began in the 70’s at Soundmixer Studios in New York City. After the success of a hit single, he took his talent to England where he co-produced the Pet Shop Boys and mixed and produced a who’s who of hits by many top recording artists such as Bobby Womack, the Temptations, Bahamen, Stanley Clarke and many more until 2003.

For the next six years Roszak was the Director of Radio, Promotion, and Press for Delta Groove and Eclecto Groove Records whose projects included such notable artists as the Mannish Boys, Elvin Bishop, Sean Costello, Candye Kane, Ana Popovic, Bob Corritore and Friends and many others. He also booked the top music festivals in Norway, France, Spain, Switzerland, Holland as well as many of the major blues and music festivals in the United States.

Making the decision to branch out on his own, in January, 2011, Frank became CEO and founder of Frank Roszak Promotions, an independent radio and marketing company that markets projects to radio and press, including tour support. When you see a successful chart climb by an artist or nominations for awards... there is a good chance that Frank Roszak is the person responsible for the success. His contacts are extensive and the testimonials of satisfied clients speak for his phenomenal success. This is a person you want as your front man. I became acquainted with Frank recently through Vicente Zumel of La Hora del Blues in Barcelona, but after communicating with him several times I felt as though I had known him for decades and had been in the music trenches with him. If I was an artist needing or wanting promotion, there is no doubt I would want Frank Roszak working the room for me.
