    Donavon Frankenreiter

    For nearly four decades Donavon Frankenreiter has been travelling 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.
    You can find him touring the world with his three-piece band and still catching waves anytime he can.


    Jaime Wyatt

    Hailed by Pitchfork as one of the “most exciting and skillful storytellers” working today, Jaime Wyatt is the kind of generational talent whose raw, honest lyricism is matched only by the power of her huge, unmistakable voice. Wyatt first began turning heads with her breakout 2017 debut, Felony Blues, which chronicled her now much-publicized battle with addiction and transformative journey through the criminal justice system. Wyatt’s 2020 follow-up, Neon Cross, tackled even more profoundly personal revelations. Both records arrived to universal acclaim, with NPR praising Wyatt’s “remarkable voice” and Rolling Stone lauding her “lush, layered, and complex” performances.


    JC Brooks Band

    JC Brooks is an American singer known for his dynamic and soulful performances. As the frontman of JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound, he gained recognition for blending elements of soul, funk, and R&B with a modern edge. The band’s energetic and eclectic sound, combined with Brooks’ charismatic stage presence, garnered attention in the indie music scene. Known for their soul-infused covers and original compositions, JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound achieved acclaim with albums like “Want More” and “Howl.” Brooks’ distinctive voice and the band’s fusion of retro and contemporary styles contribute to their appeal, making them a notable presence in the soul and indie music landscape.
