Frank Solivan & Dirty KitchenFrank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen stir the pot with a recipe that offers a smorgasbord of musical sounds, combining multiple layers of spicy instrumentals, tasty songwriting, and delicious lead and harmony vocals. In other words, the band cooks. “This newgrass / bluegrass foursome,” says the Irish Times, “spirals through skin-tight banjo picking, razor-sharp mandolin, and jazz-tinged concentric circles – all with a degree of control that balances technical precision and improvisational virtuosity. The joyous musicianship is shot through with lyrical warmth.” The band features Frank on mandolin and lead vocals, Dan Booth on the doghouse bass, Mike Munford on banjo, and Chris Luquette on guitar.

Frank grew up in Alaska and spent six years performing with the U.S. Navy’s premier country-bluegrass band, Country Current. When he and the Dirty Kitchen band released their self-titled debut album, it made Best of 2010 lists from coast to coast. Their new album, On the Edge, just hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Magazine bluegrass chart. Bluegrass Today calls the new album “spectacular,” and adds, “Don’t be surprised a few years down the road to find Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen among the best in the business, and to look back and see that On The Edge pushed them over the top.” The band plays a great mix of peppy originals and the occasional cover, including a terrific version of the 1960s classic by the Box Tops, “The Letter.”
