How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The band was incredible, and I would definitely go to see them again at another venue (I believe they play under the name The Hollywood Hot Tones or Hot Jazz Club, I didn't catch it during the show). However, I really found the personality of the vocalist, Janet Klein, grating. She was trying to be cutesy, which doesn't appeal to me. Her voice was not up to the quality of her backing band. Also, the venue was very uncomfortable; they oversold, so some people had to stand or sit on the floor during the performance, and the actual chairs were not very comfortable. I would prefer not to return to the Steve Allen in the future.
