Guitarist Donavon Frankenreiter shares more than just a surfy, breezy acoustic sound with Jack Johnson. He worked with Johnson's label, Brushfire Records before signing to alt-country label Lost Highway. He split from them, too, starting his own label, Liquid Tambourine, to freely take his surf's up, island-style chill vibe wherever he feels like taking it.
And he's coming to town in June, a perfect time for his sweet, relaxing sound to help ease the scorch of Phoenix in the summer.
Frankenreiter is in good company , too, joining Ted Nugent, Rusted Root, Dirty Ghosts, Reverend Horton Heat, and more in this week's crop of just announced shows.
