Our Staff

Leon Frank

"The Big Kahuna". Leon has been involved with many businesses throughout his illustrious career. In fact, high-end audio (or any audio) was nonexistent when Leon first began in business. From oil companies, ranching, beauty salons through real estate and now audio and video, Leon possesses the sharpest business acumen in this industry. He has built Evolution from a small one man operation to a multi-million dollar business within a very short period of time. He is highly respected by all manufacturers and industry representatives. Leon has achieved his success by being fair, honest, and above all, ensuring customer satisfaction.

Besides running a demanding business, Leon is also an avid oil painter, specializing in scenes from the Southwest. Many of our clients are proud owners of a "Leon Frank" original.

Jay Frank

Jay was one of the first proponents of multi-channel surround sound during the early Seventies. After writing numerous articles on quadraphonic sound, he boldly predicted that multi-channel audio would someday be used with video for in-home use. Evolution was first conceived during these early years and garnered many members from around the globe. He pioneered the first laserdisc video store that specialized in high-end sound and front screen projection systems.

When he's not at work (and sometimes when he is), Jay enjoys running. He has participated in numerous events from 5k's to full Marathons and Ultra-Marathons.  Amazingly he's still alive.
