ALPINE, Wyo. — Gray Bear Productions and Music at Melvin brings high caliber bands from across the country with a diverse mix of styles like traditional Americana, soul, hip-hop, reggae, funk and country. This intimate live music festival takes place on July 31 from 11:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Alpine, WY, just 45 minutes outside of Jackson.

Tickets are available at two price points, with kids under 12 free. General admission is on sale for $90 each or $150 including a signed show poster and two drinks. Tickets are limited and this is a must-see, amazing and eclectic lineup.

In ten days, Donavon Frankenreiter will bring his talent to headline the stage. 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 venues that bring Frankenreiter to town, where he entertains audiences with his three-piece band and unique blend of laid-back grooves, philosophical lyrics and soulful delivery.
