A chart-topping singer/songwriter, a legendary Country Music Hall of Fame member and a classic funk band top the list of things to do on the Coast this weekend.

Gavin DeGraw

Pop singer Gavin DeGraw will bring hits such as “I Don’t Want to Be” and “Follow Through” to the IP Casino at 8 p.m. Friday. Tickets for the show start at $65 and area available at Ticketmaster.com. But if you want to see DeGraw, act fast, as tickets are going quickly and only a few seats are available.

Ronnie Milsap

The IP also will play host to country music legend Ronnie Milsap at 8 p.m. Saturday. Milsap has had several No. 1 hits such as “Smoky Mountain Rain” and “What a Difference You’ve Made in My Life.” He has hinted he’s thinking about retiring, so see the Country Music Hall of Famer while you can. Tickets start at $25 and a few are available at Ticketmaster.com.

The Commodores

Get ready to get funky when the legendary Commodores take the stage at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino at 8 p.m. Friday. Known for hits such as “Nigh Shift,” “Too Hot Ta Trot” and the anthem “Brick House,” the ’Dores should have you dancing in the aisles. But if you want to get funky, you better snap up some tickets sooner rather than later. Tickets start at $34.95 and are available at Ticketmaster.com.
