LOUISVILLE PALACE

Way, way too loud. We follow Joe around the country and the last three shows have been loud to the point of painful. He sounds so much better when you can hear everyone, not just the bass and distortion. He's the best. We had trouble understanding songs that we have memorized. Please Joe....turn it down from 10 to about 7 or 8.

MOMENTS OF BRILLIANCE BUT LACKING ANY FEEL AT ALL

Joe ALWAYS is a great performer...the 'band' sans Reese on keyboards is mediocre at best...Anton Fig on drums was a blessing , Michael Rhodes is was a much needed muse to Joes' guitar work. The new band members are very good in their own space but so far not a cohesive touring unit from what my ears were telling me. The sound mixing team should all be FIRED, totally over done and not focusing on venue specific sound quality. Cmon Joe you can do way way better...stop focusing on new marketing items to SELL and focus on what you do best playing those amazing vintage guitars and putting on a killer show.

JOE WAS GREAT....THE SOUND NOT SO MUCH.

Joe and Reece Wynans. kept up their end of the bargain. However, the speakers were so loud, that they drowned out Joe's and the girls singing. He shredded the guitar all night long Awesome...including a different guitar for each song. We saw him at the Warner Theatre and few years back and the whole production was Perfect.

JOE BONAMASSA SONY CENTRE OCT 15/2016

Enjoyable concert but disappointed Joe didn't play "any" older familiar material like Just Got Paid, Django, John Henry etc.

JOE BONAMASSA AT THE TERRACE THEATER IN LONG BEACH, CA.

11/23/18 The sound reinforcement was terrible or The Terrace Theater acoustics were terrible. The entire concert was muddy. Couldn’t hear the back up singers, the words to the songs, or the leads well. I know Joe can do better. Waste of money. Too bad. Didn’t the engineers hear this? Blahhh.

SADLY DISAPPOINTED

Would have thought the sound in the Queen E. Theater would have been better. Seemed muddy and disproportionate to the drum set. Had to struggle to hear the entirety of Joe's solos. Not sure if that is on the Bonamassa crew or the Theater crew. Was also quite disappointed in the song selection. I know new music is important to keep the train rolling. But the train began through the energy provided by those songs, such as Slow Gin, Mountain Time, John Henry, and Dust Bowl. I even thought I would hear the title song Redemption from his new album. I have been a big fan for the last 6-7 years, thanks to PBS, You Tube, and Pandora. But I only heard two songs I knew of in the 2+ hours he generously played. Although his skill and talent was definitely on full display last night, he's still the best, I left the theater sadly disappointed. Tickets cost too much anymore, and this may likely have been my one shot to see him. Maybe I can get some redemption in Red Rocks some day.

GREAT BAND BAD SOUND

I love Joe B. He is a monster player and the band was great. However, whoever ran the sound board needs fired. You could barely hear any vocals because the band was way too loud. Learn how to run a proper mix!
