This is a very nice venue for performances. No bad seats, sound is amazing. For some reason we could smell some type of smoke coming from outside during the entire performance--which of course can't be controlled I guess since it's outside. It was almost a...More

Thank you for the very nice review we appreciate your patronage of the Harvester & Live Music. There are Uber and Lyft cars that now service the Harvester from Roanoke call the box office for those numbers. Again thanks for your Support. Happy Holidays

I like everything about the Harvester Performance Center! They bring in performers that provide solid entertainment. The venue is big enough to seat a sizable crowd, and small enough to ensure a great view of the performers. The seats are incredibly comfortable. The acoustics are...More

Great show and venue. I only wish it was closer. This makes our 3rd visit and look forward to the next opportunity. Not a bad seat in the house and lines move fast for both ticketing, food and bev.

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

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.
