JOE AT LONG BEACH

we have gone to see Joe 5 previous times>every show was fantastic, until last night.the first 3 songs were way to load and no balance between instruments and singing.after that balance was restored but still to load for a inside venue.just turned down about 10 % would have been prefect.

THE PA BASS RUINED THE SHOW

The bass was set so loud by the sound guys that I was unable to clearly hear the lyrics, the horns, the drums... yes the drums and the back-up singers. The bass got louder as the night progressed. I had in ear plugs which muffled most of the high end sound, thus ruining the music. Paid a premium for tickets and the sound techs ruined the performance. All of those in my group had the same complaint. It was a horrible experience over all. Joe was fantastic as were all the band members. But the sound techs were crap. We could only imagine what a decent mix would have been like.

JOE BONEMASSA

The only person to truly enjoy this truly wonderful band was the man paid to be there , the sound man sitting under his headphones . The fans who paid to go to shea's got tortured. I have traveled from Welland ON to Beverly Hills to hear Buddy Guy. Would I travel 18 miles to see him at Shea's? Probably not because I want pleasant memories of Buddy and Joe

REALLY JOE

I have been looking forward to seeing this guitar legend for weeks.. We had great seats and it started well...WOW that guy can sure play !! I was not sure if it was just me, but after the 4th or 5th song, I'm dripping with sweat and sticking to my seat. A brief reprieve to the bar was small conciliation. Dang it was hot and we retreated to the confines of a cooler venue. This was really disappointing and out of character for the Moody. The curious part is several ushers and management told myself and others, The artist requested this temperature setting.

SOUND SYSTEM SUCKED

Been to 100s of concerts and as much as I love JB the sound system at this show was a great big disappointment. The show was good but for theirs prices the sound should be clear and crisp. Enjoyed show but not as much as much as others I have seen. Playing loud alone does not do it for me anymore. When I was young and stoned maybe. Today not.

MIKE FROM MILWAUKEE, WI.

I saw the August 27th show at the Riverside Theater in Milwaukee. Poor mixing at the sound board and way over the top with sound level. I paid to hear the subtlety of this world class bluesman and his voice. He was drowned out too many times by the other musicians. Didn't care for the 3 backup vocalists. Their noise did not fit well at all with Joe's musical style. lastly, needed to hear some of his great early stuff. No doubt the greatness is there, but it appears he is trying to do too much. Still would highly recommend seeing him
