We parked at the convention center garage and were able to use the building's front doors and elevator to exit and enter again, then just crossed the street @ the light rail stop. Worked great!

Watch out for Parking. There are signs with "City" with BIG $5.00 but under the amount has small writing "PER HOUR".

This is the second time that I have seen this wonderful show. I urge all of you who read this, to attend the next time it comes to San Jose.

It was good. First act was better than second and there was too much slow music. Could have done more Dorsey and Porter

5 stars!This was a great show and our seats were in the ninth row. Of course the age of attendees reflected the type of music. Don't know why we had never seen it advertised in past years. What a schedule! They had about 60 performances in two...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Artbeat

Artbeat began with a love of music. From studying the piano at the age of five, to learning the acoustic bass and hearing Thelonius Monk as a teenager in New York, that love eventually grew to encompass all the performing arts. And there lay the origin of Artbeat.

Artbeat is a not-for-profit arts presenting organization that was formed by David Shaw in Ashland, Oregon in 1987. In addition to seven tours of 'Ain't Misbehavin',' Artbeat also toured 'A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline' and 'Shirley Valentine,' starring Helen Reddy.

Presenting world music, dance and jazz in 40 West Coast communities, Artbeat is committed to bringing the very best in cultural entertainment to communities that appreciate the arts but may be off the beaten track and under-served.

Artbeat renovated and presented in Oregon's Old Ashland Armory, and raised funds for the Historic Everett Theater restoration. Preserving a community's interest in the arts and it's theatrical facilities is crucial to sustaining a community's culture and vitality.
