A full-time resident of Las Vegas, Cavanaugh looks forward to a hometown crowd, given his extensive touring schedule. “I look forward to Vegas shows because I get the opportunity to perform for my friends and family. There’s no better feeling than looking into the crowd and seeing familiar faces during the show,” says Cavanaugh.
