Donavon Frankenreiter - (Set time: 8:20 PM)
Donavon Frankenreiter
Donavon Frankenreiter has been writing, recording and touring his music for 20 years. With over a dozen full-length record releases and hundreds of songs written, the traveling troubadour has become beacon for funkified jams, stylish stomps and feel-good grooves. From his surf-inspired serenades to classic blues-rooted funk, the Donavon is always evolving. It would seem he’s just getting started…

After a whirlwind of travel and months on the road touring, Donavon cruised his way back to the studio to get crackin’ on some brand new tunes. As the amps buzzed so did the excitement. His fresh collection of hand written scribbles on loose paper started to come to life before his eyes - manifesting themselves into 4 brand new tracks: “Them Blues”, “Boom Boom”, “Is It You” and “Could Be One of Those Days”.

With the creative mojo flowing and growing, Donavon decided to keep on the gas. In July 2019, he released a new album aptly titled “Bass & Drum Tracks”. Comprised of 16 songs (13 of his most beloved, classic tracks and 3 news ones) this assemblage of stripped-down jams gives the world a whole new way to get down, get creative and get into some good ol’ fashion Frankenreiter fun.

Equal parts inventive and inclusive, this new “Bass & Drums Tracks” record allows fans and music lovers all around the world become part of Donavon’s wondrous world in their own unique way. Whether you slay it on the saxophone, sing the blues or just toot on your trusty kazoo, there’s something on this record for you… Sing along! Play along! Start a band!

To celebrate this new selection of tunes, Donavon will be promoting the release of the album and the new songs by performing it LIVE on their upcoming tours. Like usual, he plans to go worldwide for months at a time. Only this time, Donavon is bringing his love for vinyl records out on the road like never before…

His long-time obsession with analog sound and vintage record players is making its way on stage! For “The Record Player Tour”, Donavon and his long-time right-hand man, Matt Grundy, will be playing their set as dynamic duo - with their trusty record placed between them. They’ll be dropping the needle themselves, LIVE in hi-fi, spinning the analog bass and drums on wax as their backing “band”. It’s the sort of special twist that you don’t want to miss…

“We love vinyl records so much and are complete addicts when it comes to vintage players… that’s how this whole idea came to me”, beams Donavon. “I thought, why can’t we make an album available where people can jam along to it and we can also play to it LIVE too? “
Christina Holmes - (Set time: 7:55 PM)
Christina Holmes
New Jersey-born and Rhode Island-based singer, songwriter, and Cove House Records founder Christina Holmes threads together stories of love and life on her third full- length, The Beautiful Struggle, united by her confessional lyricism and instrumental proficiency on guitar, bass, djembe, and piano. The music magnifies a universal journey. After keeping a childhood songwriting ambition a secret, she went from braving open mics to brightening the spirits of bedridden hospital patients alongside the charity Musicians On Call. Following a seminal “Amateur Night” gig at the Apollo, she dropped her 2013 debut, Peace, Love, & C. Holmes and canvased the country on a sold-out tour with Trevor Hall. 2017’s Stand Up—produced by Warren Huart [Colbie Caillat, James Blunt]—would be the first official release through Cove House Records. In the aftermath, she garnered the acclaim of Paste, Relix, and Jam in the Van and toured with everyone from Hall to Xavier Rudd and Nahko of Medicine for the People in addition to booking her own national headline run. As early as 2017, she started compiling ideas for what would become her 2019 offering. She holed up at Spitfire Studios in Los Angeles in order to put the trip down on tape. “Everybody Knows” hinted at her impressive musicality, looping vocals on top of djembe. Meanwhile, the single “Rise Up” pairs a bright guitar lead and organic percussion with her warm delivery. Ultimately, she delivers her most personal, passionate, and powerful statement to date informed by true trials, tribulations, and triumphs.
