Uncle Frank and the Co-Defendants
Uncle Frank and the Co-Defendants
Uncle Frank & the Co-Defendants is an americana, rock n’
roll, spoken word outfit that feature the words and wit of
Unclee Frank Lauria.

Uncle Frank spins modern parables with humor, biting satire
and sprinklings of pop-culture references that are true to his
beatnik roots.
In the late 1950‘s Uncle Frank read poetry in Greenwich
Village and uptown at the Seven Arts Coffee Shop with the
likes of Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and Gregory Corso.
Frank credits Kerouac with teaching him how to sleep on a
bus (you curl up and wedge your feet against the arm rest).
A best selling author of the Dr. Orient series of fiction, Frank
has travelled the world hanging with Paul Bowles in Tangier,
William Burroughs, Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful in
New York, and Tom Waits in Jamaica.

The Co-Defendants are: Jerry Boxley and Dudley Hughes
trading off on guitar, bass and background vocals. Will
Morris is on drums. Chris von Sneidern on guitar and vocals
gives the Co-Defendants a rock n’ roll swagger.
Over the summer, Uncle Frank & the Co-Defendants
recorded their first, full length album at Chris von
Sneidern’s studio at Hyde Street. A CD release party will be
held on November 19, 2011 at the Hotel Utah Saloon in San
