“Our New Perfect Place For Live Music”
Review of The Birchmere

Reviewed 21 October 2013

We have planned to go to The Birchmere so many times and just never made it, till last night. It was the best time! There will be no delay planning the next visit. Perfect music hall. The show we saw was sold out. Seating is first come first serve using a number system and even though we were maybe mid point in seating, all seats are very good. We had a great line of sight, the music quality is incredible. Service was SUPERB. No delays from the time seated to when our order was taken, and then food and drink served. Never had to wait or search for our waitress when needing a refill. Bill was settled with no delays either. Great selection of beer and wine, and a large selection of appetizers, entrees, dessert. The food was good, fresh. Parking was easy in and out and free. The restrooms were very clean, as was the whole music hall. Though last night was just a couples night out for us, children are welcome and there were families present all enjoying the show. But do not mistake it for a Disney like experience, it is not a Disney kid oriented production, it is a true professional music hall not geared toward kids and family, but is family friendly. Greta crowd, all very enthusiastic and appreciative about the show, but behaved. I have no criticism of this place, they just have gotten all things right.

The Birchmere is great place for concerts. I make 2-4 trips there per year. Get there early for good parking and a seat close to the stage. Also avoid service charges by buying the tickets at the box office

They feature the music I like to listen to, crystal clear sound, good sight lines ( even though we arrived late and sat off to the side), easy in and out with free parking. What's not to love !

One of the coolest venues I have ever seen a live show. You can literally reach out and touch the performers. The acoustics are great, the energy is unbelievable. The most current acts that are on tour are available to see. You will not be disappointed!!!
