Beach Creek features live entertainment nightly throughout the summer season. With some of the island’s most delectable dishes, Beach Creek brings new meaning to dinner and a show. Cape May County’s best reggae, singer/songwriter and acoustic musicians are set to entertain Beach Creek crowds this summer season, including Donavon Frankenreiter and Tom Curren.

Beach Creek will host these two former professional surfers who’ve turned to music in a two-night concert on Tuesday, August 2 and Wednesday, August 3.

Before launching a solo career as the protégé of Jack Johnson, Donavon Frankenreiter began his professional life as a surfer. Born in Southern California, he landed a sponsorship with Billabong as a young teenager and moved to Hawaii when he was 14. There, he rented a home from the parents of Jack Johnson. The two became fast friends, learning guitar together and hanging out between trips to the beach.

Music was always a hobby for Frankenreiter, who began playing guitar in a local rock band called Sunchild during his late teens, but it wasn’t until 2002 that he grew confident enough to try a solo career. From there, Frankenreiter’s solo music career soared with a little help from his old friend Johnson.

Tom Curren’s move away from professional surfing on a world tour allowed him to focus his efforts on another passion –music. His eclectic style – called a combination of “funk and psychedelia” by Rolling Stone – has been embraced not only by the surfing community, but by mainstream music lovers who recognize and appreciate his minimalist approach and raw talent.

Catch the unique musical stylings of both Donavon Frankenreiter and Tom Curren at Beach Creek Oyster Bar & Grille on Tuesday, August 2 and Wednesday, August 3 at 8:15 p.m. Pre-concert, stop by for Happy Hour cocktails and dinner.
