Two-Night Concert at Beach Creek Features Donavon Frankenreiter

Beach Creek Oyster Bar & Grille will host a former professional surfer who’s turned to music in a two-night concert on Tuesday, Aug. 28 and Wednesday, Aug. 29.

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.
