March 5, 2008 : – – At last a real name to conjure with… Donavon Frankenreiter, the original surf-muso-meister, will headline the 10th anniversary of the GoldCoast Oceanfest on the mid-summers weekend, 20, 21, 22 June 2008. Whilst the organizers frantically beaver away to finalize the remainder of the bill, one thing is for certain – Donavon’s appearance will definitely dominate this years proceedings.¿¿
Being a pro surfer for half of his life has left an evident mark on Donavon’s songwriting. His mellow, groovy and upbeat songs serve up a genuine soulfulness that make you want to feel the sand beneath your feet and the salt on your skin.
The two worlds are a perfect marriage for Donavon, as he says, “the surfing thing keeps me alive, and the music keeps me grounded.” A perfect fit for North Devon’s GoldCoast too, solidifying that surf music connection which is so intrinsically linked to the Oceanfest.
