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

JOE IS AWESOME. TOO BAD SOUND ENGINEERS ARE DEAF.
Joe always puts on an awesome performance, but the sound engineers need to fix the levels so that the audience can hear comfortably. The sound was too loud for this theater. I could hardly hear Joe's vocals. My wife had to keep her fingers in her ears to be comfortable. This level may be good for a larger venue or outdoors, but not in this size auditorium. I'm glad I got a chance to see him, but did not enjoy the concert too much,

SOUND WAS DIFFICULT
First, I am a huge fan. Joe is amazing. However, and I understand part of the problem could be location, but what were they listening to on the mixer board? The bass was so overwhelming. At times is was just a gut wrenching roar. There were only a few times the backup vocals were even mildly audible. Same for Joe--impossible to follow the lyrics and I know several of the songs. I recorded video and using my own controls was able to improve the mix.

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.

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.
