Robert Mendenhall Robert Mendenhall 
Wurst Act Records President/CEO

In 1998, Frank and I began working together to put Wurst Act Record on the 'map'...so to speak.   After coordinating the bands in New Orleans, Mississippi and Alabama to learn the music, I would book the jobs.  Frank had been in the music business for over 20 years and desperately needed help.  While I handled the business end at Wurst Act records, he devoted is time to the music.  This produced the Hard Times album, his most potent CD.  (

According to the obituary published in the "Mobile Register" ( Alabama ), the official date of Frank Mendenhall's death was February 20, 2007 , or "Fat Tuesday," as one Mendenhall fan has reminded me. Otherwise, the obit reveals few details of this unique performer's remarkably unmemorialized life. He worked for the Parks Department in the Washington, DC area and he has a surviving daughter.  (

"I love his style.  He's done something phenomenal.  He's blended reggae with the blues.  His gritty lyrical perspective is right on target.  Hard Times  reflects what's going on in the world.  Frank has a great future.  I think he's going to hit one, with this one."   (

"I met Frank in Laurel, MS, during an outdoor Blues concert. We were both performing that day, had arrived early and had time on our hands to get to know each other. 

We talked about the music business, traded music, phone numbers with each other and became good friends.  That casual meeting sparked a good friendship."  (More)
