Matthew, Santa Clarita

This gem of a concert venue is the best kept secret. Tucked away in the Santa Barbara mountains, it fills the need for every concert goer; excellent visuals, excellent acoustics and very friendly staff. Highly highly recommended for any event.

Liked: Fantastic!

Pleasant - 3 out of 5

Charles, Morro Bay

The trek to the top of the hill is a challenge so you had better either have decent seats or like us, if you paid $200 for bleacher seats really love the show. On this case it was Sting so need I say more? However it will take someone special to squeeze me back into a bleacher seat again.

Liked: View was awesome - will be back if I can get better seats.
Disliked: Bleacher seats are ridiculously small for the price.

Cynene, La Crescenta

We were in section B where the the bench seating (no back rest) is very tight. Great view of the show, late arrivals rude and distracting.

Liked: Beautiful venue, first time there.
Disliked: Uncomfortable seating in back section.

l Came up from Los Angeles for a Maren Morris show -- she was excellent -- the venue is truly spectacular. Start with easy, cheap parking nearby at the high school (funny). Short walk to the venue...
