Frank Sardo Avianca (September 16, 1936 – February 26, 2014), who performed as Frankie Sardo, was an American rock and roll singer, actor and film producer. He was a member of the ill-fated Winter Dance Party in 1959 after which Buddy HollyRitchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson lost their lives in a plane crash the morning after a show in Clear Lake, Iowa.

He was born Frank Marco Sardo on September 16, 1936, in Brooklyn, New York, into an Italian-American family.  By age 5, Frankie Sardo had his first musical debut on stage of the theatre of Little Italy, in the Bronx. He continued to perform in these theatres, which catered to Italian immigrants, along with his parents, He served in the military in Korea. On his return to the United States, Frankie joined a comedy group, before making his first recordings as a singer for MGM Records in 1958.

His second record, "Fake Out", written by his brother Johnny Sardo (born 1941), who recorded some mighty fine Rock & Roll Records himself,  and released by ABC-Paramount, became a regional hit, and he was invited to join the 1959 Winter Dance Party tour starring Holly, Valens, Richardson, and Dion and the Belmonts, as the opening act (Most of the tour's posters mistitled his song "Fake Out" as "Take Out"). After the tour concert at Clear Lake, Iowa on February 2, 1959, Sardo traveled to the next venue by bus with Dion and the Belmonts and Holly's backing group, while Holly, Valens, and Richardson took a plane. The plane crashed in the early hours of February 3, killing the three stars and pilot Roger Peterson. Sardo continued to release singles on several different record labels until 1962; on some, he performed with his brother as a duo, Frankie and Johnny. On September 7, 1960, Frankie Sardo appeared on American Bandstand where he performed his single "When The Bells Stop Ringing".

Using the name Frank Avianca, he worked as a film actor and producer. His film credits included co-writing the lyrics of several songs for the 1969 movie Hell's Angels '69 (1969). He produced Clay Pigeon (1971), co-produced The 14, also known as Existence (1973); produced and acted in The 'Human' Factor (1975); and appeared in Matilda (1978). He then co-wrote and co-produced the horror film Blood Song in 1982, and also co-wrote and co-produced the feature-length animated film Ferretina - The Promise.

He lived in many places including England, Canada and California. Frankie Sardo died of cancer in Somers, New York on February 26, 2014, aged 77.
