Nina, Placerville Thu, 28 November 2019

It was a magical night seeing Krishna Das. We drove 4 hours just to attend this event and it was totally worth it. The people at the Rio are very nice, too!

Liked: It's a very comfortable venue and the sound is great.
Disliked: Nope, never disappointed.

David, Bloomington

Loved the theatre and the folks working hard to keep it rocking. Obviously a great community resource. Go early and eat at the Mongolian restaurant next door - great people. If before 5, a great clothing store is there also.

Liked: Good people working hard.

Shiela, Portland

Fun show; nice venue. A bit on the stuffy side but overall a nice place.

Liked: Intimate and clean; awesome sound and acoustics!
Disliked: No bar; weird seating that discouraged dancing and even standing up. Even the band commented that they were uncomfortable.
