My wife and I saw the Rock Group "Kansas" at Luhrs Performing Arts Center this past week and had a wonderful time doing so. This is a very wonderful place to see live music as the acoustics were perfect. We will return.

The shows I have been to have always been great. Everyone should experience it once in their life. They have seating for those that in motorized chairs. Which makes it very nice for the handicap.

Upbeat venue for musicians, plays, comedians, ext. They have a wide range of great seats, stylish building, friendly staff, and close parking. I am impressed by the class acts they bring to perform here.

A beautiful facility with great unobstructed views and fine acoustics. Also very comfortable seats. Parking pretty easy and not too hard to get out of. Only complaint was that doors, bar opened later than advertised. Wide variety of 1st-class acts appear throughout the year.

Yes, an assortment of beer, wine, and mixed drinks are served preceding most performances and during intermission (if there is an intermission; not all shows have an intermission).
