Gavin DeGraw

Gavin DeGraw’s powerful new album MAKE A MOVE is a victorious and
creative musical return. On the follow-up to 2011’s Sweeter, Gavin DeGraw has experienced a creative and commercial renaissance displaying his even more focused vocal and artistic talent, his assured energy, musically expanded palette, and sharp, detail-driven lyrics. The first single, “Best I Ever Had,” is the most up-tempo thing DeGraw has done yet, charging out of the gate with a galloping rhythm and lively horns. “I feel like this album is the strongest record I’ve made,” DeGraw says. “It’s a clear evolution from what I’ve been doing. I’ve taken more risks, like learning the value of having space in the writing. Silence is louder than the highest note.” “It’s like being born again,” he says. “It’s crazy. I think very few people get to experience that sort of luck-of-the-draw moment.”

DeGraw is referring to the double-platinum success of his single “Not Over You,” a “soulful, majestic ballad” (as Billboard put it) co-written with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder that reached No. 1 on the Hot AC charts, was a top 10 hit at Top 40 radio, and was certified double platinum. The track helped propel Sweeter (which Rolling Stone’s review called “taut, efficient and hook-packed,” going on to praise DeGraw as “an excellent singer”) to a No. 8 debut on the Billboard album chart, his second Top 10 album after his 2008 self-titled release. That album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s album chart, and spawned the hit singles “In Love With A Girl” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.” (The South Fallsburg, NY, native first broke through in 2003 with his platinum debut Chariot, which yielded three hit singles: the No. 1 Top 40 smash “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and the title-track.)

Those who saw DeGraw perform while on tours with Maroon 5, Train, and Colbie Caillat over the past two years have seen his growth and maturation as a performer occur before their eyes. “Making music is still what I’m most passionate about,” he says. “It’s the one thing I’ve always identified with. It’s what I did when I got sent to my room as a kid, and what I did on the way home from a ballgame. You can’t help it; it’s just your thing. So I was lucky enough to have something that pulled me in so aggressively. It’s either this or go to therapy,” he says with a laugh.



Matt Nathanson

Based in San Francisco, Matt Nathanson has evolved into one of the premier songwriters and dynamic performers on the music scene today. His 2007 album Some Mad Hope (his first for Vanguard) yielded the smash single “Come On Get Higher,” which has sold more than 2 million copies to date, as well as the subsequent hits “Car Crash,” “Falling Apart” and “All We Are.” The success of Some Mad Hope earned Nathanson a coveted spot as a VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist, while also resulting in appearances on such national television shows as David Letterman, Ellen,Conan O’Brien, Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson, Dancing with the Stars, Rachael Ray and The CMA Awards to name a few. Additionally, his songs have been featured in numerous film and TV programs, including Good Morning America, NCIS, Private Practice, American Idol, X Factor,Vampire Diaries, American Pie and 90210. Modern Love, his previous studio album, debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and topped the iTunes Pop Chart. It featured the hit singles “Faster” and “Run” – the latter featuring Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush.

Nathanson’s legendary live shows, in which he displays a chic comedic flair, have resulted in sold-out tours across the U.S., Canada and Australia. Matt Nathanson’s ninth studio recording, Last of the Great Pretenders, will be released on July 16th. The new album is available for preorder via MattNathanson.com, iTunes, and Amazon.com. Produced by Mike Viola and Jake Sinclair, Last of the Great Pretenders marks a dramatic progression for the acclaimed artist, who has created a richer and deeper work both musically and lyrically than any of his previous LPs – and that’s saying something considering the already rarefied level of his writing and performing. Songs like “Earthquake Weather,” “Kill The LIghts,” “Kinks Shirt,” “Sunday New York Times” and first single “Mission Bells” are precisely cinematic as Nathanson stirs the material with deftly placed pop-cultural references and vivid details drawn from his keen observations of everyday life, while topping each song with an emphatic and seductive chorus hook.

Coolest Summer Ever - New AC
CASINO BALLROOM INSTALLS NEW HVAC SYSTEM, BOOSTS ENERGY EFFICIENCY Concert Attendees Will Enjoy More Comfortable Temperatures This Summer Thanks to Infrastructure Upgrades Hampton, N.H., June 4, 2014 - The Casino Ballroom, one of the oldest live music and comedy venues in the country, has completed major infrastructure upgrades that will offer concert-goers a more comfortable environment in which to see their favorite artists perform this summer. Working closely with Unitil, a provider of natural gas and electricity in New England, the Casino Ballroom has taken a number of steps to reduce the energy required to cool the building. First, GDS Associates, Inc. completed an energy audit of the building, which presented unique solutions for not only drastically increasing the venue's cooling capacity by 18 tons, but also ways to vent heat from "trouble spots," such as those that result from hot stage lighting used during shows. These upgrades, installed by J. Lawrence Hall Company, will allow for greater temperature control and a more comfortable viewing experience at shows in the venue, even on the summer's hottest days. Innovations include: - A new, highly efficient HVAC unit and economizer, which will increase total cooling output - New, cooler LED stage lighting that will generate less heat as wasted energy - Improved airflow to let excess heat from inside the venue escape more easily "Our goal is to provide the best possible live concert experience in New Hampshire for fans and for performers," said Andrew Herrick, director of marketing, Casino Ballroom. "We're thrilled with the infrastructure upgrades that have been made to our building, and, simply put, the results are incredible. The room will be much more comfortable on hot summer nights, and our overall energy consumption actually went down slightly, even with the added cooling capacity". The Casino Ballroom was one of Unitil's first electric customers in 1900, which means the landmark venue has been a Unitil customer for almost 114 years. "At Unitil, we're proud to help local companies like the Casino Ballroom improve customer experience through innovative energy-efficiency solutions," said Tim Noonis, senior business development manager, Unitil. "The Casino Ballroom is a premiere entertainment venue, and these new improvements guarantee that fans will continue to enjoy world-class shows here for years to come."

Foster The People All Ages
Due to overwhelming demand we have been able to change the age limitation on the Foster The People show schedule for May 8th. This show is now available for all ages.
2014 Concert Series
After this long winter we are thrilled that the 2014 Budweiser Concert Series is finally here. Kicking things off with a sold out Experience Hendrix show was the perfect way to "defrost". This will be a very special year at the Ballroom. Thanks to a partnership with Unitil we were able to significantly increase our air conditioning to keep things cool while the bands heat up. We have also made a huge change to the stage that will allow us to incorporate more touring production when your favorite artists stop by to play. With shows announcing each week and over 50 shows on sale now there is going to be something for everyone on the beach this summer! We look forward to seeing you.
