I saw Ben Folds here with my wife. The venue was very cool and historic. Classic architecture with good acoustics. Would definitely see a concert here again if I am in town.

This is one of my favorite venues to see shows in Jacksonvile. There have been so many famous artist that have performed here, most notably is Elvis back in the 50s. Great acoustics. Original architecture. Going to a show there next month and can't wait!

This is a beautiful, historic building and they've done a fabulous job restoring it. This was my first time there and I would love to see other shows in the future. Parking is easy as there is a garage right across the street. The only drawback is the location. There are no good restaurants within walking distance. The area around... More
