WOW, what a great treasure on the Crooked Road. This is a small venue seating only about 400 people at the most but don't let the small size fool you, they attract big name stars. The seating area is divided into two price ranges, "Gold...More

This is a small intimate venue, where there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Unless it’s standing room only and you’re behind a pillar. But even then the sound is phenomenal. And they get great artist here all the time. Big names small names...More

Great place to see a show. The venue is larger on the inside than it looks from the outside. The acoustics are great and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. They serve beer and wine just steps from the stage. They also...More

The Harvester Performance Center is a perfect venue for a concert. The seats are comfortable & the PA system & acoustics are outstanding. There isn’t a bad seat in the house, but I recommend getting a seat in the Gold Circle if available. Highly recommend.

Great small venue. The acoustics were awesome! There is not a bad seat in the house! We were there to see Uriah Heep and we're impressed with the entire layout and the staff. Great place to see a show!

I do not find it very comfortable to sit in chairs with nowhere to put a beverage. When event is sold out, you can barely walk between rows of chairs. Feels like being at church rather than enjoying a music show.

Went to see a band I really liked and was impressed. The concert I attended was on a week night and that might explain why attendance was low. Locals kept saying it was a school night. The place can seat about 400, but only about...More

Not a bad seat in the house. Great venue with helpful staff. Drinks and food were reasonably priced. Beer, wine, pizza and snacks available. Also close to restaurants for pre or post show dinner. One of the best. Venues around. Will go again!

We showed up early and got some great seats. But, as the show time crept closer, the staff rearranged and added seats in front of us for their friends and totally ruined the view. People in front of us, who had been there... More
