Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen started off the year pretty hot and heavy. Except for the temperatures on their "Way Up North To Alaska Tour" in January. It wasn't very hot there. It was minus 35 when we landed in Fairbanks! The band's good friend Chris Luquette filled in on guitar for us up north. He did an incredible job. In fact, he did so well, they offered him the job. The official public announcement of his new venture with Dirty Kitchen was from stage at Wintergrass Bluegrass Festival in Bellevue, Washington last month.
