This is a very nice venue for performances. No bad seats, sound is amazing. For some reason we could smell some type of smoke coming from outside during the entire performance--which of course can't be controlled I guess since it's outside. It was almost a...More

WOW, what a great treasure on the Crooked Road. This is a small venue seating only about 400 people at the most but don't let the small size fool you, they attract big name stars. The seating area is divided into two price ranges, "Gold...More

The Harvester Performance Center is a perfect venue for a concert. The seats are comfortable & the PA system & acoustics are outstanding. There isn’t a bad seat in the house, but I recommend getting a seat in the Gold Circle if available. Highly recommend.

I believe it's first come first served, but we had VIP tickets which were worth every penny! We got priority seating in the first couple of rows!! I say, pay the extra $$ and enjoy the show, it's a great venue!!😉
