Gavin DeGraw was forced to pull the plug at the last minute on a show for the Boys & Girls Club — his team says he was sick as a dog, but he’s already planning to make good.

Sources connected to the fundraiser tell TMZ … Gavin was booked to perform last weekend at the 2022 “Enchanted Masquerade” Chrysalis Ball for the Boys & Girls Clubs in Collin County, TX.

The club serves upwards of 5,000 kids, and Gavin’s performance was the first big in-person event they’d planned since COVID shutdowns. Organizers were therefore so disappointed when Gavin had to cancel the event on the exact day.

According to our sources, the singer’s team notified Boys & Girls Club about Gavin’s illness. He was unable to make it to the event due to his condition.

We’re told event organizers had already spent $20k in production costs, and they ended up using the band originally booked for their after-party to replace Gavin.

It is not clear what Gavin’s illness was. Our sources say that his appearance fee will be refunded, but the Club will not get the production or rider costs back.

Understandably, there were some disappointed folks at the fundraiser.

DeGraw’s team says he’s since made a full recovery, and while he regrets having to cancel … he hopes to come back and support the organization soon.

The good news is that the fundraiser still raised more than $1million that night.
