Frank Migliorelli and The Dirt Nappers are a roots-rock Americana band that have been hailed as “undoubtedly talented musicians who write classic, timeless songs flavored with pop, rock and roots that you’ll want to listen on repeat.” (Byron William, Indie-Spoonful) Their latest release-“Bass, Drums, Guitars and Organs” garnered airplay across the Americana radio stations and show both nationally and internationally, and Frank picked up an honorable mention in “American Songwriter Magazine”’s songwriting competition in 2017 for his song “When The Circus Ends”.
The Dirt Nappers bring it to the stage every show-with a collection of talent that have played with Gavin DeGraw, Southside Johnny, Steve Forbert and more. With a strong catalog of original music, they pepper their shows with a number of choice cover tunes to create “the perfect mix of 60’s AM radio, and a Saturday night in the garage with a few good friends and few guitars.”
Frank has written and published a library of music for advertising agencies, children's publishers, and video game projects. He's been a finalist in top songwriting competitions. As a producer, Franks’s recorded such great artists including the award-winning duo "Satan and Adam", Bill Perry-"Love Scars”, The Uptown Horns and a number of other album releases. He's written and produced music for a 20th Century Fox "X-Files" video game, numerouschildren’s video games for Scholastic and Sunburst, and even wrote a soundtrack for a "Chippendales" video… “When you’ve done everything from writing music for little kids, ad agencies and half-naked guys in bowties,” says Migliorelli, “you want to step back and try something different.” When The Dirt Nappers take the stage, you are in for a night of the best of Americana folk, rock n' roll and soul around.
