Francis Orsini was the founder & lead singer of the Don’t Call Me Francis Band.
In March of 2015, cancer took his life, after a long hard fight. He is deeply missed, but his legacy lives on.
Frank was a dedicated father, brother, family man, and friend. An entertainer, a band leader, a musician, a businessman, an irreplaceable presence, an inspiration to many, a relentless fighter, and a truly unforgettable person.
In 1991, Frank formed the Don’t Call Me Francis band.
Frank was known as Mr. Excitement. That’s not an exaggeration. Frank mesmerized his audience with every show, wearing his signature piece- a fedora.
Frank would play his trumpet, twirl it around and sing the songs that would get the crowd going. He would hang from rafters and jump off the stage. He captivated the crowd.
Frank treasured his beloved daughter Adriana, who is now taking an active role in the band as a soprano vocalist.
