Uncle Frank

6:45pm, Friday, Main Stage

Uncle Frank

The Godfather is back! Yes, the Main Stage of Summer Sundae will see the return of the Leicester legend and his band of gypsies. Long term member of the Fun Lovin' Criminals, Frank Benbini was the first artist to play on the main stage at the very first Summer Sundae festival in 2001 (with his former band Baby Genius) and we're very proud to welcome him back to rock the main stage with his techni-coloured rocket fuelled show of pure indulgent imagination.

Frank and his all star Leicester band stormed the Musician Stage last year with their immense, unstoppable live show, jam-packed with gags, funky dancing and tear jerking original songs. 2012 sees Uncle Frank ready to release new album Smiles For Miles.Celebrity Special guests are rumored to be joining Frank and the crazy crew on stage this year and of course there will be gifts for all the audience too.
