I have loved Donavon Frankenreiter’s (quite a mouthful of a name) music for a while now. His style is similar to Jack Johnson, or maybe G. Love – definitely my kind of music. His music actually reminds me of one summer in high school when I drove another crappy car (if you’ve ever seen my history of vehicles you would know that I’m not one for flashy automobiles. Although, when I grow up maybe I will have a nice, real car. We’ll see…) His music reminds me of this car because my radio was broke – and if you know me, you know I’m not driving around without music – so what did I do? Nope, I didn’t get it fixed (I was in high school, no money obviously)…I found an old cd player I had in my room (boom box style), plopped it in the passenger seat of my car, threw in Donavon’s first solo album, cranked it up and went on my merry little way. Hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
So, Donavon’s music reminds me of my youth along with summertime, the beach, Long Island, and happiness. Needless to say I was thrilled to have finally gotten a chance to see him live at the Blue Ocean Music Hall at the Pavilion on Salisbury Beach a couple of weeks ago. We enjoyed a full day of sun on the beach (it was such a beautiful day!) then dinner at Capri (which was delicious), followed by the concert. A really, really great day!
