Joe Bonamassa Reviews
Don Schuepbach from San Antonio, Texas
R. Griswold Wrote the perfect review in November 2013. The San Antonio show last night started off great. The first hour was well done and we could hear and enjoy. Then the show ramped up during the electronic portion power, power, power and a muddled sound really taking away from the enjoyment of the experience.....Sound board help IS DRASTICALLY needed. I mean anyone who has knowledge of sound knows that loudness and volume are two separate animals. I would never fault a show where a performer pours his heart out for two and half hours but there was a problem with the production and it seems to to ongoing. DON'T STAY AWAY FROM THIS SHOW JOE B. IS WORTH THE MONEY TO SEE HIM!

SAW JOE AT SONY CTR TORONTO WED NOV 16
This is the 3rd time I've seen Joe. This was the least entertaining. First the acoustics were off. You could barely here the backup singers, bass guitar, or brass over Joe playing his guitar. Then throughput the show the volume got louder to the point it was almost painful. The guitar work was still outstanding and a pleasure to listen too. I also wish he would have played some of his earlier work. This would have made the show more palatable. To me the worst was the Zeppelin cover. He has more than a dozen albums it was dumb to play a Zeppelin cover for your closing song before the encore. I came to hear Joe not Zep.

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

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.
FR Weidman from Austin, Texas
I have been looking forward to seeing this guitar legend for weeks.. We had great seats and it started well...WOW that guy can sure play !! I was not sure if it was just me, but after the 4th or 5th song, I'm dripping with sweat and sticking to my seat. A brief reprieve to the bar was small conciliation. Dang it was hot and we retreated to the confines of a cooler venue. This was really disappointing and out of character for the Moody. The curious part is several ushers and management told myself and others, The artist requested this temperature setting.

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.
