GAVIN DEGRAW TOURS WITH BANDIT LITES

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – When fans of American singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw arrive at a show of his, they can anticipate the Grammy-nominated artist to play all his hits, albeit with one notable modification: a pared down band.

“We wanted a classic and intimate look to fit this show,” said Production Manager Mitch Vanhoose. “Also going into smaller venues, we wanted to keep it somewhat scalable. What we ended up with is a simple, yet elegant look.”
