Midway STAGE

Home grown New York indie-rock recording artist Frank Palangi serves up a feeding frenzy of edgy deep n gritty vocals while freshly fueling a bursting positive, passionate attitude. His quote "No Plan B" acted as his mission. It started in 2006 after leaving high school to pursue his dream. He wanted to become a career musician and singer-songwriter, and began on that path by releasing his debut self-titled EP in 2011. Influenced by bands from the 80's (Metallica, Ozzy, Def Leppard, Megadeth), 90's (Creed, Godsmack, 3 Doors Down), 2000's (Daughtry, Three Days Grace, Shinedown), he fuses rock n roll with a post grunge sound to sculpt his positive, clean musical motifs. Grounded from a solid support system from his upbringing while his motivations are centralized around positivity and not the temptations of a stereotypical rockstar lifestyle. From an early childhood he learned to adapt to his chronic medical illness that impacted his decisions in his everyday life, turning it all around as a force to bring his dreams into reality saying "I have no Plan B backing down on my dreams."

With raw passion, dedication, and determination ingrained in his veins, his energetic performances and steadily growing fanbase, Frank has kicked down doors landing slots in North East Region opening for major performers such as: 3 Doors Down, Red Sun Rising, Buckcherry, Candlebox, Aaron Lewis (Staind), Starset, Kip Winger, Jack Russell's Great White, Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf), FUEL / Marcy Playground, TRAPT with Smile Empty Soul / Candlelight Red / Veer Union, Powerman 5000 with HEDPE, Stars Go Dim, Young Guns, HURT, Jess Malin (D-Generation), and indie acts Moriah Formica (The Voice), IM5, Spiritual Rez, Prospect Hill, Bad Axis, Hindenberg, Sirsy, Deluka, Silversyde along with winning an opening slots in Upstate NY with the Rocknderby Festival featuring Megedeth, Shinedown, Dokken, Like A Storm, Coheed and Cambria and The Uproar Festival featuring Alice in Chains/Jane’s Addiction.
