ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: John Frinzi
Long time Meeting of the Minds musician John Frinzi returns with his band as a Casa Marina MOTM exclusive. He is a favorite of the crowd and the only way to see him at MOTM is to register for the event and join us at the Casa Marina stages! John will be all over the stages hosting a new version of his very popular “Friends” show which has been moved to the Thursday afternoon slot on the main stage. Re-badged as “The Singer-Songwriter Showcase,” this show continues to be a favorite of the MOTM week! Here is your chance to see The Singer Songwriter Showcase earlier in the day on the main stage with some very cool guests. Don’t miss this one. And don’t miss the John Frinzi Band on the main stage! They will rock it…
Don’t forget John’s band is the core group for the beachside album hour on Friday night. They appeared as “The Shrimper Dan Band” for the very first Album Hour. This year the “surprise album” has been announced in advance to let you know that it is a very special event. Jimmy Buffett’s “A1A” will be played from beginning to end with many guests on the stage. I am bringing in a larger mixing board this year to handle the amount of artists that will be on stage on Friday night. Don’t miss this show as there will be special guests who played on the album such as Roger Bartlett on lead guitar and many other Coral Reefer Band members. There are other confirmed guests helping out…be there and don’t miss it!
