The intimate surroundings of the Bear’s Den lent itself to a laid back style of performance and the largely female audience took full advantage of the setting as they freely shouting out remarks and questions to Gilman all through the show.

After opening with “Drove All Night”, Gilman freely spoke about his time on the competition reality series “The Voice” as he sang and told stories of his musical career. The one thing that stood out in those stories was Gilman’s genuine appreciation for his time on the show and his coach Adam Levine despite saying that it was the scariest thing he had ever done.

He sang a variety of songs including those from his first album when he was just a small boy. Along with “Gonna Find Love”, Always, “When We Were Young”, “Say You Will”, “Little Bitty Pretty One”, I Know”, “This Love by Maroon 5, “Oklahoma”, “Rolling in the Deep”, and “The Show Must Go On” Gilman paid tribute to long time friend Jerry Lewis with a performance of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” – the song Lewis performed at the end of every Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon that he was a part of.

Having a little fun, Gilman staged his own version of “Carpool Karaoke”. He admitted to loving to sing in his car and said that it was a good thing he didn’t have a convertible.
