His career began after his appearance on The Jack Gleason Show, which garnered him a lot of attention. He received several invitations to appear in other television series. In 1954 he signed with X-Vik Records, a small independent company. His first recordings were instrumentals like “Trumpet Sorrento” and “Trumpet Tarantaella”.
At the age of 12 he joined a local band called Rocco and the Saints. Bobby Rydell was also in the band and they performed at the church bazaar, school gyms, holiday resorts and other places. A chance meeting with Bob Marcucci, the local entertainment manager who was looking for a rock ‘n’ roll singer, proved to be a turning point in his career. Marcucci liked Frankie’s voice and helped him get him a deal with Chancellor Records even though he was a trumpeter.
In 1957 he released the songs “Cupid” and “Teacher’s Pet”. Although the songs weren’t big hits, they helped him land a role in the movie Jamboree the following year. His song titled “De De Dinah”, a song prepared for him by his managers. He didn’t like it, so he sang it nasally to show his displeasure. However, by sheer coincidence, the song became one of his first top ten singles. In 1959 he recorded a song called “Venus” written by Ed Marshall. This song has a modern feel with symphonic music, bells and chimes. In the US, the single became his first number 1 hit.
