Artist Andy Grammer performs before a full crowd at the Keith Albee Theatre Friday.

Multi-platinum recording artists Andy Grammer and Gavin DeGraw performed Friday at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center, along with special guest Wrabel.

The night started with an opening act by Wrabel, singing his 2016 released track, “11 Blocks,” and the song most audiences were familiar with, “Ten Feet Tall.”

Following the opening act, Grammer set the night off with his first two singles, “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me,” which made him the first male pop star in a decade to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio.

Some other songs Grammer sang included “Forever,” “Good to be Alive (Hallelujah)” and “Fresh Eyes.”

“I wrote the song, ‘Forever,’ when I was on a vacation with my wife and she took so damn long to get ready,” Grammer said. “So I just sat down with my guitar and wrote this song.”

Sarah Vance, sophomore communications major, said she loved how Grammer danced with his band, making it more personal instead of just doing the usual singing and getting right off the stage.

“I think it’s really neat to see bigger acts coming to such a small town, because you don’t really see that a lot of times,” Vance said. “For concerts like these, you usually have to travel two hours away.”

Elizabeth Frame, a graduate student majoring in social work, said she was there for the evening to see both Andy Grammer and Gavin DeGraw.

“I think it’s awesome Andy and Gavin actually came here when Huntington doesn’t really get a lot of people like them,” Frame said.

DeGraw, a Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter, performed some of his songs, including “Best I Ever Had” and “Sweeter.”
