Since the recent release of his new album, “Something Worth Saving,” Gavin DeGraw has been touring with Andy Grammer throughout North America. On Nov. 10 DeGraw and Grammer performed in Orlando at the Hard Rock Live, which was the final gig of their tour. The Bite was able to attend and give you the full coverage of the concert.

DeGraw came out first and performed a total of 13 songs. He started the night off with his 2003 hit “Chariot.” This was one of my favorite performances of the night because he was not only singing, but also playing the piano, dancing and interacting with the audience. DeGraw kept up the fast pace by going right into the next song “Best I Ever Had.” I liked that he picked two fun and well-known songs to start off the night. From there, he played some of his lesser-known songs like “Follow Through” and “Sweeter.” DeGraw covered two songs; “Ride” by Twenty One Pilots and “Let It Go” by James Bay. The performance of “Ride” was very good because he added his own take by incorporating the piano. Finishing off with “I Don’t Want To Be” made every fan feel like they were on the show “One Tree Hill” because it’s the theme song of it. Then the stage went black and everyone thought the night was over, but he surprised us and performed “She Sets The City On Fire,” his new hit single.

After about a 15-minute break of setting up the stage, Andy Grammer finally came out. He immediately performed “Keep Your Head Up.” Grammer opening his performance after the long break with these energetic and popular songs was perfect. From there he went right into “Fine By Me.” This was my favorite performance because, like DeGraw, he danced and interacted with crowd. The rest of night he played his lesser-known songs, which brought the crowd energy down, but he was able to bring back up by the end of the night. He also did a cover of “One Dance” by Drake and “Don’t Let Me Down” by the Chainsmokers. The covers were very good showing off his wide-ranging ability of music. Ending the night with “Good To Be Alive” and “Honey, I’m Good,” Grammer left the audience in awe wanting more.
