Excellent staff, beautiful venue. I have attended business meetings, weddings, graduations, funeral, and a ton of great concerts. Best ever was Mayfard Ferguson and Clay Aiken.

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.

The Luhrs center is a great venue! My husband and I have attended several events at this center. The staff is always so welcoming, very helpful. Whether we attended a sold out concert or watched a comedy show we enjoyed ourselves every time!

I took my wife to see the Celtic Woman which was very expensive but I have to say, it was worth every dollar spent. we loved it. The shows that have made it to the Luhrs have been truly the best, New York City quality

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).
