Click to Enter. Frank is known for his Dirty Kitchen Experiences, a musical and culinary event that brings food, friends and music together. This contest expands on what they have been doing successfully since the inception of the band and is now making this special event available to everyone through Music City Roots. Check out a recent review of a Dirty Kitchen Experience. "If you like your Bluegrass a little eclectic, with ventures down the tributaries that feed the soul of Bluegrass, do check out Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen. I think they just might feed that spot you didn't know was hungry." Tony Pires, Tone Gard. In a recent interview with AOL's The Boot, legendary comedian and bluegrass aficionado Steve Martin named Frank Solivan and DK banjo player Mike Munford at the top of his list for music/artists he’s listening to these days. Success has come to the band in droves since the August 2010 street date of their self-titled debut album, earning spots in the Top 30 of the Bluegrass Unlimited National Bluegrass Survey, and currently holding the #11 slot with an original composition - "Driftin' Apart". The album held at #1 for two weeks on the Roots Music Report and currently holds the #4 Bluegrass Album slot nationwide as well as the #1 Bluegrass Album in Virginia on the same chart. They were nominated for several WAMMIE Awards (Washington Area Music Awards), chosen as showcase artists at Folk Alliance 2011, had the #1 most played song "July You're a Woman" on Sirius/XM Radio in March 2011 and have confirmed many exciting new bookings with such prestigious festivals as the 50th Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival, Wintergrass, and Grey Fox Festival in NY. David McGee with The Bluegrass Special lauded the record saying, “You know you’ve got something going for you when the dobro master nonpareil Rob Ickes ordains you “the best new bluegrass band.” Guess what? The estimable Mr. Ickes may have understated the case, if the level of playing, writing and singing on Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen’s self-titled debut is any indication… I would say “remember the name—Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen,” except that anyone who hears even a bit of this music will never forget its point of origin. Talk about a band coming out of nowhere and bound for greater glory, this is it.” FS&DK has been chosen as one of the official showcase bands for the International Bluegrass Music Association's World of Bluegrass Events, Sept. 26-Oct. 2 in Nashville, TN. Visit the Music City Roots website for your chance to win an exciting house concert and meal with Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen this summer.
