“...it’s flat-out awesome!” ~Kyle Cantrell, Sirius/XM Radio "Wow... incredible music by a great combination of players. These guys have the whole package - they can sing, play and write extremely well! This is the best new bluegrass band...” Rob Ickes, (Blue Highway) Frank Solivan is a singer of power and passion, a writer whose articulate songs go straight to the heart, and a multi-instrumentalist who combines the pure, hard drive of classic bluegrass with twenty-first century sophistication. Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen play a wide variety of New Acoustic American Roots Music focusing on bluegrass and acoustic country, yet blues, folk, swing, and jazz also shine through as influences. Powerful vocal harmonies, expressive songwriting, smooth ballads, and instrumental prowess lend this versatile group of musicians to any type of venue. Each member is an inventive powerhouse. *** *WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING*

“I received the new recording and all I can say is WOW! You guys have cut an awesome album. The material is fresh with great arrangements, the singing is first class, and the picking is SO strong and complimentary of each song. I'll run out of adjectives to describe how good it really is! Suffice it to say, GET IT!! You will be supremely satisfied.” ~Adam Steffey, 6X IBMA Mandolin Player of the Year, Multiple Grammy Award Winner * "This project was smokin' hot from the first song until the last note of "Paul & Silas". Then my cd player couldn't take it anymore & disintegrated! That is one of the hazards of being a dj. Once in a great while, there will be a project that has a life of its own & overpowers your cd player & shows it who is boss. There is a certain sound that a cd has that generates a feeling & you know this is a winner. Whether it was the beautiful singing, awesome instrumental work, or superb original compositions, it all fit together like a favorite sweater. It was necessary to play this project repeatedly in order to get the full impact. Forty three minutes wasn't enough. I could see some of these songs becoming classics one day. As soon as I started playing this project my request lines went into overdrive. A sure fire winner!" ~Al Shusterman, KCBL Radio~ * "This is ONE KILLER of a CD! Frank Solivan’s vocals, mandolin work and original songs would be enough (here comes the “That’s not all, folks”), add Lincoln Meyers’ guitar work, Stefan Custodi’s bass… and Mike Munford’s banjo ( two words here HOLY COW!), and you’ve got a real winner of a project! " ~Joe Wills, WBZC Radio~
