Introducing . . .

     Stu Franks is the Launch's version of a comic book hero.  He's the multitalented, multimedia comic of the band, who also serves as part time mediator, counselor, and psychoanalyst.  As an accomplished piano player and singer, Stu naturally forays into vocal orchestration while keeping the band's bottom end together.

     The Connecticut School of Broadcasting, is where Stu was introduced to a wide array of technical production.  Music has always come easy for Stu, who plays and sings almost as a natural to the living arts.   He has been described as a guy with a good heart, who really cares.  He is there to take a stand and support a good cause, performing with the Launch as well as his own band through out the Philadelphia area.  The glass is always half full for Stu, who is a sky's-the-limit type of guy.
