Went to see a show last night and was unsure of what we’re getting ourselves into. Definitely hard to find but once you find it the place offers an intimate experience with musicians. It’s a byob venue with a 4$ charge. If you’re looking for some beer prior to going Grain restaurant up the street sells individual cans and bottles. The sound is really good for the size of the place. If I get the chance I️ will definitely be back to visit in the future.

A very intimate setting that is comparable to enjoying a performance in your living room.  This was our first time here, so this is our takeaway.  First, Kennett Square is a small town with a huge one way street "complex" so navigating around was like navigating a maze.  The venue is located in an alleyway off of a main street so it's easy to miss.  We weren't sure of parking so we simply found a side street and parked along it.  Kennett is a very safe town so there should not be any issues.

This is a BYOB place for beer and wine only.  No hard liquor is permitted.  They did apparently serve pizza but it was on a cash only basis.  It was rather comical to see people humping small coolers into the performance.

In side there were long tables which ran perpendicular to the stage.  Seats were equivalent to ones you would find at a church banquet, functional but not really comfortable.

I was expecting a rather mediocre lighting and sound system.  I must say I was very pleased with both the lighting and the sound.  We went to see the incomparable, Steve Forbert.  He seemed to be unhappy at times with the sound, but we would never have noticed an issue.  It was that good.

Kennett Flash is a not for profit organization focusing on bringing talent to the small community.  Kudos for this organization and all their efforts.  Having Steve Forbert perform is evidence that all their hard work and dedication pays off.  

This was, by far, one of the best concert experiences we have ever had.  Such an intimate atmosphere without all the drama of a large crowd and fighting for viewing space.  Steve played for almost an hour and 45 minutes, then came downstairs to sign and take pictures with the fans.  He is an American treasure and as humble and as caring an individual as you will ever find.  He treated each and every fan with respect and courtesy.  A remarkable performer whom I hope more people are lucky enough to see sometime.

We all need to support venues like this.  We will definitely go back here in the future.  From the top down, the staff and volunteers made us feel incredibly welcomed. You need to experience this place!  Make sure you come with cash as they appear not to take cards any where on site.

The management were very rude to our party! While the band played, we were singing along or dancing, trying to enjoy the evening & were told to basically sit down & shut up because we were distracting the band!! Wow, I thought we were there to enjoy the band & evening!! VERY rude!! Made our group want to leave!! Not sure if I'd return!?!? It was sad that we felt like we couldn't enjoy our special night planned for our friends 50th birthday!!

Very rarely do you find a small, intimate music venue that let's you get up close and personal with the musicians....but this is that place. They host a wide variety of talented bands, comics and other entertainers. It's a BYOB and the ticket prices are very affordable. There is rarely a major-name entertainer, but you come here for the discovery of up & coming talent, singer-songwriters, cover bands, and other musicians who love what they do. Definitely worth checking out the monthly list to see who's going to be here. This place may only seat 100 (or maybe not even that many). It's quirky, but it's a lot of fun with friends (It's behind LaVerona Restaurant, 1/2 block off State Street - so it's hidden from street view, but any local will easily direct you!)

What a great place to take in the tunes with a good bar menu and drinks. Stage is small but makes the entire music experience seem like you are in a cafe for a private concert. Wish the flow thru would be more wide spread and communicated. VIP pricing for some special events is a bit pricey but the cover bands I have seen there are really true to their music and honoring the bands they replicate.
People that work there are very nice and appreciate the feel and purpose of being at this venue

Kennett Squares best entertainment gem. Great music in an intimate setting. You can bring a bottle of wine to enjoy. And you can also order dinner delivered from a near by restaurant.

I recently discovered The Kennett Flash and have now attended 4 shows. This is a non-profit whose mission is to support the local arts. All of the groups exceeded my expectations! The music ranged from blues to country, classic rock and folk singer songwriters..... professionals to amatures. The "room" has great acoustics and is an intimate setting. The acts really bond with the audience
It's a BYO with reasonable cover charges that vary by the act.

An intimate venue for seeing up and coming local talent as well as nationally known entertainers. The Flash is a local not for profit entertainment venue.
