Frankie and The Rascals
Tommy Brown (accordion), Tommy Elwood (drums), Joe Delin (vocals)
June Brown (vocals & bass) Frankie Pritt (leader and comedian) and Brian Pritt (guitar)


Frankie and the Rascals were trail blazers as they travelled all over Cumberland, the north east clubland, Lancashire and into Scotland. They worked with many of the top acts of the day. They had a fresh, unique, style and their presentation was original.

June Brown, known as "Little June", could have made the bigtime. She had many offers of jobs with broadcasting bands but she turned them down because of family considerations. June was declared Queen of Clubs in Carlisle in 1962. Until her recent death she was often to be seen at the Gunners Club in Workington.The late Tommy Brown, the accordionist, was also June's husband.

Joe Delin is another superb vocalist who is still in demand and performs all over, including in Spain.

Tommy Elwood was a first class drummer.

Brian Pritt played rhythm guitar and Frankie Pritt was the multi talented comic, vocalist and band leader.

The world of Cumberland entertainment would not have been the same without Frankie's Rascals.
