West Side Theatre Serves Up Musical Entertainment
Dirty Kitchen

Musical group Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen will take the stage on Saturday, March 4 at the West Side Theatre in Newman.

Tickets are $17 for General Admission and $20 for Reserved Section seating. Doors open at 7 p.m.; show time is at 8 p.m.

The band is the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Instrumental 2016 Group of the Year, which they also won in 2014. Since Frank Solivan left the cold climes of Alaska for the bluegrass hotbed of Washington, D.C., he has built a reputation as a monster mandolinist and become a major festival attraction with his band, Dirty Kitchen.

Solivan, with banjoist Mike Munford, 2013 IBMA Banjo Player of the Year, award winning guitarist Chris Luquette and bassist Jeremy Middleton simmer a bluegrass/newgrass stew from instrumental, vocal and songwriting skills not to be beat.

They’ve been named Washington Area Music Association’s Best Bluegrass Band of the Year for four consecutive years, and their last album earned Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen a 2015 Grammy Nomination for Best Bluegrass Album.

Upcoming March performances are scheduled to include:

James Faifua and the Jukes on Saturday, March 11 with General Admission tickets, $16 and $20 for Reserved Section. Doors open 7 p.m.; show time 8 p.m.

The Black Irish Band, Saturday, March 25, doors open at 7 p.m., show time at 8 p.m.; tickets are $15 for General Admission, $18 Reserved Section.
