AVALON, Calif., May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Franti kicks off the second year of Live @ Descanso Beach Club next to the crystal clear waters of the Pacific Ocean on beautiful and romantic Catalina Island.
The series is brought to you by The Xceptional Music Company and The Catalina Island Company. The stage will overlook yachts floating a few yards offshore, the bar will be open, and the music terrific!
Michael Franti, with hits like Say Hey (I love you), The Sound of Sunshine, will bring his pleasing mix of reggae, jazz, funk, folk, rock, and sunshine to Catalina. A musician, filmmaker and humanitarian, Michael Franti is a pioneering force known for his globally conscious lyrics, powerful performances, and dynamic live shows, and he has continually used his music as a positive force for change, particularly involving matters of world peace.
Last year's concert series saw Smash Mouth, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Rusted Root, Coleman Hell, and The Wailers.
Catalina has always been a favorite vacation spot of Hollywood "A-Listers", and still is, from Marilyn Monroe to Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.
When the Wrigley family of chewing gum fame bought Catalina in the twenties, they brought the biggest music of that the era. In more recent times, Catalina visitors have heard the music of Kenny Loggins and legendary surf guitar player, Dick Dale, and lately they have heard the music of our time, with performances by Diplo, Snoop Dog, Rachel Platten, G-Easy, and Post Modern Jukebox at "Up For Whatever."
Catalina also offers an abundance of amenities including the only "on the beach" bar in California at the Descanso Beach Club, the luxurious Island Spa, ocean front restaurants and shops, concerts by the sea, and dozens of activities and tours like the Zip Line Eco Tour, East End Adventure, Undersea Expedition, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, parasailing, and many more.
