We walked out after the first two numbers. Simply not our cup of tea. We were also exasperated by the fact that a rock band preceded the group for 45 minutes with mind-numbing acoustics that might have worked in Yankee Stadium but was totally...continued

None of this is Goldstar's fault ... in fact, their support was flawless and I really appreciate getting discount tickets to local shows on a moment's notice. This was the third musical event we've attended at Sixth and I, and I hope it will be...continued

It was a horribly loud experience. My party and I had thought it would be a more conventional choral group, singing a mix of old and new songs. Instead, it was an assault on the sense of hearing. Why does the group have to amplify its songs so...continued

The music presented at the concert was completely different from what was described in the offering - it was a rock band with guitar, keyboard and drums. Quite honestly, we felt duped into spending $45 dollars for something that was not as...continued
