Goldstar Events is renowned for giving its customers what they bargained for, and Jazz at the Catalina Bar and Grill last Friday night was by no means an exception. The location was perfect--Catalina's is the ideal jazz experience right in the...continued

There is no one else in the world like Kurt Elling. He makes every moment, every specialized note that he sings absolutely amazing. His BAND is to DIE for! I hope he hurries back!
Catalina is beautiful, roomy, great acoustics. Linen tablecloths,...continued

Review from Timothy M.

Great show, Roy Hanes was fabulous; what an evening! And our luck that Christian McBride came up and sat in for several numbers; seriously, he is the finest bass player I have heard in years. Good service, great sound, perfect night out.

Dick Gregory and Mort Sahl are some of the great comic and philosophical geniuses of our time, and it was a rare treat to see and hear them both at the same time at Catalina's. Thanks to Goldstar, we had great seats and the show was one of the...continued

Review from jleq

Despite knee surgery, Rita Moreno remains a fantastic performer. Show more 'caberet-style'....meaning she did ehat SHE wanted to sing. No problem with that--or the stories she shared with the audience between songs. Nice venue--a bit difficult...continued

Review from Timothy M.

The band was smokin', but Mr. Hubbard should consider putting the trumpet back in the case. I wish they had billed it as a tribute birthday party or he had agreed to just act as a bandleader; he is unable to play professionally, in my opinion. ...continued

Review from Scoobie

this place is easy to get to and you can park on the street or in their garage for a nominal fee of $6. I always have a great time when I go here as the artists are so close and accomodating! Order your drinks together then you can just relax....continued

Review from Beata Mandell

I thought that the ambiance was just alright. The music wasn't that great. Especially compared to Jazz Clubs in New York such as the one in the Time Warner Building. Over all I wouldn't recommend this.

Review from Ariana

This place was awesome! As we were driving up, it looked a little shady. But once inside, it was really cool. There was great music and we had good seats. The food was pretty pricey, though. We didn't order and drinks and our bill was still $100....continued

Jane Monheit was fabulous. They charged us for the drink minimum w/o even coming back to ask if we wanted to order another round, though. Not cool.

Review from Michael M. Landman-Karny

The John Pizzarelli/Jessica Molaskey show itself rated 5/5 stars. They were wonderful.

The quality of food at Catalina, however, was mediocre and very over-priced. The service in the restaurant is downright awful. It took us forever to get...continued

To say Rachelle Ferrell is a singer is to say Picasso was a painter ...she has the most extraordinary instrument which she seems to play with her entire body from the tip of her toes up through the top of her head. She is a true marvel to behold!...continued
