Live Show: Donavon Frankenreiter and After Party w/ Dad’s LPs


Friday, June 8, 2012 | 9pm

Crystal Bay Club Crown Room, Crystal Bay, NV

The mellow dreaminess and island-breeze acoustic tunes of Donavon Frankenreiter might remind you of Jack Johnson. That’s okay because they’re life-long friends, musicians and surfers. In 2002 Frankenreiter signed with Jack Johnson’s label, Brushfire Records. He released his first album in 2004 in Australia, where he gained notoriety from his support gigs with Jack Johnson and his own surfing career with Billabong.

Yesterday Frankenreiter released his fifth full-length album worldwide: Start Livin’.  In Frankenreiter’s words, “Start Livin’ is basically a love album. Most of the songs are about my wife and our two boys, and the life that we’ve built together in Hawaii.” Frankenreiter co-produced the record with Matt Grundy and Adam Ableman.

Each ticket holder will receive a copy of Start Livin’ upon entry to the venue.

If you’re looking for a little “surf rock” live music in Tahoe, then purchase your tickets now. For advance purchase tickets ($21) click here. Or purchase at the door for $24.
