Frankie Scinta was a musical prodigy, who was given his first instrument — a guitar — at the age of four by his grandfather, Joe Scinta. He eventually added mandolin and banjo, as well as drums and bass to his repertoire. His talent was quickly noticed and he began appearing locally. Before he was a teenager, he’d been seen playing the banjo nationally on Ted Mack’s Original Amateur Hour, The Merv Griffin Show and Jerry Lewis’ MDA telethon.
Frankie, along with his brother Joe, sister Chrissi and “adopted” brother Peter O’Donnell comprise “The Scintas” (TheScintas.com), a staple of the Las Vegas Entertainment scene since 2000. They are consistently voted one of the top acts in Vegas.
