$16 for a cocktail in an 8oz. Plastic cup. Balcony seating is steep that you get no good view and feel sick from the height. $20 for parking.

Wow!!! What amazing talent Benise has, along with his violinist, bassist and drummer. The dancers were stunning and such energy - beautiful costumes. The energy and passion of the entire show was just amazing!! What a powerful evening.

I’ve never been to that particular concert. The dress code for the venue seems to be from very casual to dressy. I never wear jeans but dress pants or a dress is appropriate.
