Multi-platinum GRAMMY Award-nominated recording artist Gavin DeGraw and acclaimed singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson will ‘make a move' to the Mandalay Bay Beach stage and perform at the outdoor venue. Fans can expect to hear DeGraw perform songs from his acclaimed fourth studio album Make A Move, including the hit single "Best I Ever Had" and his latest smash "Make A Move." The album has garnered rave reviews since its October 2013 release with People Magazine describing the album's first single "Best I Ever Had" as "the kind of switch-up that brings fresh energy..." while Entertainment Weekly raved about DeGraw's "intricate piano hooks and seductive, gravelly voice." DeGraw also is scheduled to open a number of dates this summer for legendary performer Billy Joel.
Nathanson has long been a fan favorite with his vivid songwriting, infectious melodies and dynamic live shows. His latest album Last of the Great Pretenders has been hailed as the "Album of the Week" by USA Today, adding "he has a way of drawing people into his stories." The album features the song "Heart Starts," the catchy theme to Lifetime's "Series Celebrity Bucket List" - of which Nathanson was recently featured - as well as the hit single "Kinks Shirt" which continues to climb on the Hot AC chart. It's also being played on America's Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest, The Billy Bush Show and Rick Dees' Countdown.
