Frank Marino (born November 20, 1954 in Montreal -) is the guitarist and leader of Canadian band Mahogany Rush which was quite popular in the 1970s, playing such venues as California Jam II together with bands such as Aerosmith and Heart. Marino says the name Mahogany Rush was less a band name and more a description of the entire experience of taking the drug acid.

Early on in his career, it was claimed that he was the reincarnation of Jimi Hendrix, a claim that was substantiated by his playing of Hendrix classics with considerable virtuosity. This claim was dismissed by Marino, however, and he set out to forge a style of his own through the late 70s to this day.

Marino is still active and involved in blues recordings as well. Marino's first album, "Maxoom", was released when he was only 17.

He began a short tour of Britain in late July 2005 playing venues such as the Mean Fiddler in London.
