In Memory: Frank Falcioni

Frank Louis Falcioni

Frank was the go-to guitar player for so many years in Reno.  He could do it all - from jazz to country to blues to classical - with the Reno Philharmonic, and he got it right the first time every time.  Frank played in my jazz sextet in the early 1980's and I continued to work with him in countless showroom gigs through 80's and 90's.  When the showrooms closed their doors and no longer needed a house orchestra, Reno Jazz Orchestra founders Jack Caudill and Tony Savage invited him to be our first guitarist. Frank was a founding member. The above photo was taken at our 2009 Jazz in the School's performance and the recording (Speedball) if from our first CD.  He left the RJO a few years ago but continued to be a presence in Reno's music scene until his recent passing.

He will be missed as a friend and musical collaborator but remembered for all the times and music we all shared with him.  A memorial fund has been set up to help his wife Mary and son Frank make through this time.

Help support Mary and Frank Jr if you can and Frank remember…. We love you madly
- Chuck Reider
