Donavon Frankenreiter | March 3
Donavon Frankenreiter Wildly creative pro-surfer and guitarist Donavon Frankenreiter's music hums with beach-oriented vibes that will have you dancing in the aisles and glowing with the sunshine of spring. His music drips with his honey thick vocals and master guitar work, bearing all the intimacy of an impromptu back-porch performance and the tenderness of a treasured love letter. This is music of the moment, of being yourself, of living life, occasionally embracing the difficult moments, but throwing away the worries. There is little room for stress in Donavon's music. It just feels good. Donavon plays with his full band for this concert. 8:00 p.m. Tickets: $35.
