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 him to town, where he entertains audiences with his unique blend of laid-back grooves, philosophical lyrics and soulful delivery.

Goodnight, Texas is a tough–to–define storytelling folk rock band whose strength lies in unexpected sweet spots.

Drawing their name from Pat and Avi’s onetime geographic midpoint – the real town of Goodnight in the State of Texas, a tiny hamlet east of Amarillo directly betwixt San Francisco, CA and Chapel Hill, NC – the five–piece band also exists at the center of its songwriters’ contrasting styles—via a 1913 Gibson A mandolin and a 2015 Danelectro Baritone Guitar, at the crossroads of folk and blues and rock ‘n’ roll, in a place where dry wit and dark truths meet hope and sincerity.
