FRANK SHINER DAY IN WILKES BARRE PENNSYLVANIA

Mayor Thomas Leighton And Frank Shiner



New York-based vocalist, FRANK SHINER, who has become the second of two artists to land consecutive Top 5 AC records so far this year, was celebrated with ‘Frank Shiner Day’ Friday, in his hometown of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, with a proclamation presented to him on stage by Mayor Thomas Leighton.



He later performed that night at the start of the town’s Fine Arts Fiesta; their 60th anniversary.



The Fiesta has recognized since its formation the need for a community to come together in order to celebrate diversity, talent, passion in artwork, and friendship.



Shiner joined other headliners at the fest, including singer/songwriter Marshall Crenshaw (“Someday, Someway” from 1982 – Crenshaw also had a brief cameo as the musician-boyfriend to Helen Hunt’s character in Francis Coppola’s 1986 Boomer-beloved “time-travel” comedy-drama Peggy Sue Got Married) and The Motels, noted for their vocalist Martha Davis and their 1983 hit “Suddenly Last Summer.”



Shiner next returns to the Cutting Room, in NYC, in July.
