January 15, 2024 – (KEY WEST, FL). On Thursday, February 15, from 6:00-10:00pm, Key West Art & Historical Society welcomes Donavon Frankenreiter along with folk rock band Goodnight, Texas to historic Fort East Martello, 3501 S. Roosevelt Blvd for an evening of music under the stars.
Donavon Frankenreiter made an instant connection with the band Goodnight, Texas recently while out on the road, comparing them to a modern-day version of The Band. He decided not only to bring them out as support for this tour, but also to have Goodnight, Texas play as his backing band alongside his longtime guitarist Matt Grundy. Incorporating their musicianship with a fresh take on Donavon’s extensive catalog, the evening will feature mandolin guitar, banjo, pedal steel, bass, drums, and more!
For nearly four decades Donavon has been traveling the globe, first as a professional surfer and now as a musician. Born in Southern California, Donavon spent most of his youth chasing waves, turning pro at the age of 16. These days instead of surf competitions, it’s concert halls that brings Frankenreiter to town, where he entertains audiences with his unique blend of laid-back grooves, philosophical lyrics and soulful delivery.
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets for the “backyard casual” setup that will include food vendors and cash bar. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $25 at kwahs.org/donavon or at the 6:00pm door opening. Children under 12 are free. Limited parking is available, bicycling, ride-share, or public transit is encouraged.
Don't miss this unforgettable night under the stars in the courtyard of Fort East Martello. Secure your spot and be part of a magical experience. For more information, contact Bonnie McInnis, Events Coordinator, at 305-295-6616 x505 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
