This year’s entertainment is Gavin DeGraw, a multi-platinum selling singer, performer, and song writer. He first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, “Chariot” which sold over 1 million copies, earned platinum certification and yielded 3 hit singles: “I Don’t Want to Be,” “Followed Through,” and the title-track “Chariot.” Gavin’s self-titled second album debuted at number one on the digital sales chart and at number 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles “In Love with a Girl,” which Billboard dubbed “A rocking home run” and the gold certified “We Belong Together.” His third studio album, “Sweeter,” was released in September, 2011 and produced the smash single “Not Over You.” The track reached number 1 on the Hot AC Chart, was a top 10 hit on Top 40 and was certified double platinum. In 2013, DeGraw released his 4th studio album, “Make a Move,” which included the hit song “Best I Ever Had.” Gavin’s 5th studio album, “Something Worth Saving,” was released last year and features his latest hit single “She Sets the City on Fire.”   

Jill’s Cashbox, otherwise known as JCB, a band from Central Florida that specializes in getting folks on their feet, moving and grooving to the music, is the front band for the Monday night entertainment. Though their original music is country, they cover a ton of entertaining rock and pop songs.
