If alternative rock isn’t your thing, head on over to the Rock and Roll Hotel on November 15 to experience the captivating vocals of Gavin James. This Irish singer-songwriter has opened for big name musicians like Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, and James Blunt all prior to the release of his first studio album, “Bitter Pill.” James has gained recognition for his seemingly effortless smooth falsetto vocals paired with his trusty acoustic guitar.
