With No Idea when this pandemic mess will end, I am currently not booked anywhere in the next few months publicly. I have a few private gigs, and one night at Pirate's Cove in September, but until the dust settles, I will not be advertising any gigs EXCEPT:
Frank's Friday Live at Five! on Facebook Live. Go to my FB page every Friday evening from 5 until just past 7pm for a musical taste of what life was life was like, not so long ago!
I'm leaving the rest of this schedule up until I know what is happening so I can just change the dates when necessary!
It's "Breakfast with Elvis!" every Sunday morning at 11:30AM at World Famous Starboard Restaurant in Dewey Beach, Delaware through Labor Day! 30 minutes of controlled chaos and Grand Marnier each Sunday! And don't forget helping M.C. the Running of the Bull AND the Annual Hot Wing Eating Contest!
F,E and R also returns to the Cottage Cafe in Bethany Beach March 13th, April 10th and May 1st! That's one Friday a month this spring, from 5 until 8pm for more Food, Music and Fun! Stay tuned!
We lost our regular home in the Dewey/Rehoboth area at the "Forgotten Mile Ale House"  when they closed after New Years 2020. I am still looking for a new home in the area. I do have one Sunday evening booked at Conch Island in Downtown Rehoboth on May 3rd starting at 8pm to give it a shot! I would love your support for this special evening to see if Rehoboth will like me?
There are the possibility of more appearances for Frank, Elvis & Raines along the DelMarVa beaches in possibly Lewes, Rehoboth, Fenwick and ESPECIALLY Ocean City, so stay tuned!
Hey, Southern Maryland! Pirate's Cove in Galesville, MD has Frank, Elvis & Raines back Sunday afternoon, April 5th from 3-7pm, plus Saturdays August 18th and September 26th from 8-12. Come try this great spot for Great Food, Music & Fun! And it is waterfront in their marina, on the West River.
For those in the Baltimore/Northern Anne Arundel/Howard Counties area, it looks like a return to Alibi's in October for F, E & R this fall!
Nearly everything else that is coming up this season, booked so far, is private, but there may be more public events for you to see me.
Keep an eye here, or follow me on Facebook and Twitter for announcements of new gigs in your area!

Frank Raines is a complete entertainer!
Performing at the Delaware Beaches, you usually find him wearing a Hawaiian shirt and shorts. At a recent gig in Altoona, Pennsylvania, he wore one of his several tuxedos. Depending on the venue, you would always find him properly attired for the occasion. In Altoona, it was a dinner set (like he does at DBC) of standards from Frank Sinatra & Michael Buble, some classic Chicago, along with an assortment of light music fare from the 60s, 70s, and later. All sung to with exceptional background tracks to have the feel of full orchestra accompaniment. Elvis sets and party sets are done similarly to provide the quality of a live, big band at a fraction of the cost! And one singer with PA system means you can accomodate more quality entertainment in a smaller venue. More value added!

And don't forget, Frank has been a professional Master of Ceremonies for over 20 years. He emcee'd his first Beauty Pageant in 1990 and has hosted TV Shows, National Corporate and Private Events, and nearly any other type of event you can think of over the years. Again, the consumate host and entertainer!

The Dinner Set can be a mix of music such as:
L-O-V-E, Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?; Fly Me To The Moon; Best Thing To Ever Happen (from Frank's first CD); Haven't Met You Yet; Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You; Moonlight Feels Right; Lady Love; Moonlighting; Beyond the Sea; Almost Like Being In Love; Fool If You Think It's Over; Summer Wind; Quadrilogy Trilogy (3 of my sister's favorites - Brandy, Dancing In The Moonlight, & Ride Captain, Ride); For Once In My Life; Crystal Blue Persuasion; If You're Gone; That's Life; Save The Last Dance For Me; I've Got you Under My Skin; Last of the Singing Cowboys; The Way You Look Tonight; Just The Two Of Us; Mack the Knife; and Beginnings.

The Party/Singalong Set may include songs like:
Havin' A Party; Big Yellow Taxi; Fins!; Long Train Running; Temptations & Four Tops Motown 25 Medley (nearly a dozen of their greatest hits); Use Somebody; Mony Mony; Harder To Breathe; Grazing In The Grass; Barry White Medley (4 of Barry's Best); Friends In Low Places; Let It Ride; Word Up; Why Don't We Get Drunk and...; A Little Bit More; Brickhouse; No Such Thing; Touch Me; Domino; Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off; You Were On My Mind; Viva La Vida; Jackie Wilson Said; Jump, Jive & Wail; Hooked On A Feeling (oom-pa-sha-ga!); Ol' 55; Steal My Kisses; K.C. & the Sunshine Band Medley (4 of Disco's finest dance songs); New Age Girl; Love Train; Hey Bartender; I Don't Want to Go Home; and many more!

A Hawaiian shirt and shorts is formal attire at this restaurant during the summer at the beach.

At the many restaurants and clubs that you will find Frank "Elvis" Raines performing many evenings this summer and fall, he usually begins the evening performing a dinner set of Sinatra, Buble, Darin and such, while patrons enjoyed a fine meal. "Elvis" then comes to life for one more show during dessert. And Frank gets them all back on their feet and ready to Rock'N'Roll with a danceable, party set to sing along with, and get up and party to! And now, the tradition will hopefully continue through fall, so please stop by!

A Girl's Night Out at Port needed a picture with the King, following his 9:30 Elvis floor show.

To understand what a professional Elvis Tribute Artist should look and sound like before booking him, Click on one of the links on the F, E & R page of this website, and go about halfway down to videos of Frank performing as "Elvis".

These are the same background tracks Frank uses when performing without a band. They are very similar arrangements to those Elvis used. It IS Frank singing! This should allow you to hear how pure Frank's voice truly is. Live, you can close your eyes and it sounds just like Elvis has returned, just for you!

This Year!

Sorry, but so much of the schedule is usually private - weddings, corporate events, private parties, etc., especially around the holidays, but as noted above, there are still many fun opportunities to see your favorite entertainer again.

You'll be able to catch Frank for Breakfast with Elvis at 11:30 AM, every Sunday from Memorial Day thru Labor Day next summer again at the Starboard in Dewey Beach. On occasional weekend evenings during the summer, Frank joins various groups that perform onstage there, as Elvis during their performances, so you never know where he will pop up in Dewey Beach. Check this space for dates and times! He nearly always shows up when "Bruce In The USA!" is around, so watch out!
I have returned to the "Cottage Cafe" Restaurant and Bar for Friday evening shows! It is the "Frank, Elvis & Raines Show" as Frank kicks off the evening with a dinner set at 5pm. Elvis appears around 6:15 for a great show. Then Mr. Raines returns with party hits to sing-a-long with and dance to. It is a fun evening!
And now dates at my venue right next to Dewey Beach at the Forgotten Mile Ale House. I am also working on dates on the 'mainland" side of the Bay Bridge in Galesville, MD, on the water, at Pirate's Cove Restaurant!
There are always a multitude of private parties for the Elvis Week in August. Frank also performs at various regular holiday events throughout the year. I will post the details as they get closer so keep an eye on this web-site.

Did you know that Frank is an ordained minister?

Yes, he has legally performed marriages in the states of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia (he is a registered minister in D.C. and Sussex County DE). Other states may have special requirements, call Frank for specifics in the state you request.

Baseball fans get married at Camden Yards.
Here "Elvis" performs a legal and binding wedding in Maryland.

Whether you have thought about going to Vegas and having "Elvis" marry you, or you are simply looking for a beautiful, non-denominational wedding service, Frank may be the answer to your wedding questions.

Contact him above and let him know your interests.

At this wedding, Elvis not only performed the ceremony, but he later performed a set and sang for the bride and groom's first dance!
