Frantic Music Project co-founders Al & Mary “Frantic” Knight.

Al and Mary have been playing music since they were kids and realize the importance music plays in all of our lives. During the pandemic, they opened their outdoor space to provide live music for those so desperately missing live music and the musicians who were missing sharing their talents. 

They also embarked on organizing events to raise money for musicians in need – so they began a nonprofit organization. An organization that would benefit the musicians of Delaware – the ones who make our lives a little brighter with their music.

Our Beginnings Were Humble

Al and Mary Frantic had a vision; one day they would leave New Jersey, and live near the beach (even though Jersey has some pretty awesome beaches). When they discovered Delaware, they knew they were on the right track.

Then they found Milton…
Al Frantic is a self taught musician who is ready to share his decades of experience with you. From showing you how to properly change your strings, how to play a D-chord, or wail on a whammy bar, Al Frantic can help you learn all the basics guitar and bass.

All items at Frantic Frets are considered used, unless otherwise marked. We look far and wide for gently used items. Al gives all newly obtained stock a thorough going-over to make sure that everything is optimum and ready for sale.

Mary Frantic wears many hats and is the “behind-the-scenes” Frantic of the business – from social media, the website and helping at the shop, Mary is also the CEO for the Milton Historical Society. The Frantics have landed and Milton will never be the same!
