It was one of the worst concerts I've ever seen. Something like a cross between a Catskill Mtns. casino event and Amateur Night at the Apollo. The production itself was amateurish, the band wasn't particularly good, the costumes were god awful. There was one excellent, very talented singer, not an original Shirelle, who could really belt songs out, but I hadn't gone there for that. The house was maybe 25% filled, and even at half off, the tickets were overpriced; it should've been a free event, at most. And there was a lot of hokey, tired, audience-coming-up-on-stage type stuff, including Ms. Lee's fellow church members singing gospel songs. I have nothing against that, but it just wasn't right for an event you paid decent money for. I kept trying to find something to give the evening points for, but really couldn't. I overheard other people expressing that they felt ripped off because they expected a better quality event because of the venue, Symphony Space, which is a very well respected house; evidentally their space was rented out for this event, and they had nothing to do with it.

We really enjoyed this show. The venue was so convenient and comfortable. The Shirelles were wonderful. Their performance was very eclectic, with their old hits, some Etta James and some gospel music in the mix. We had a very enjoyable evening.
