Review from Paige Simmons

Bobby Caldwell put on a fabulous show. The bass player and sax player were reeaaallly funky...I've seen Bobby @ the Hollywood Bowl, but I'm so glad I got to see him in a smaller venue like the Catalina Bar because now I'm a huge fan. The man and...continued

Review from Shoshi Wilchfort

The musicality and performances were top rate professionals...it was a
little loud for us...we sat next to bar as we arrived late.
We didn't realize there was only 1 set being played and came as it had
already started before 8:30!

The performance by Melissa Manchester Sunday night was one of the best live performances I've heard. Her warmth and connection with the audience as well as her interpretation of old and new songs was incredible. Those that thought about...continued

This was an amazing evening!! Andy Garcia and his Cineson All Star Band rocked the house. They played till past midnight! Got so hot that people started dancing in any open space they could find; there was a definite need for a dance floor on...continued

Catalina and Steve Tyrell are a great match.
It's a wonderful venue for a dinner/show.
Steve is very much at home here.

Such a fun evening! The Catalina experience is always enjoyable, from entrance to seating to service to dining to showtime.
Dave Damiani and the NoVacancy band is just the best. They really have fun together and it shows! They are quite talented...continued

The Catalina Bar and Grill is a wonderful venue for a show, small and comfortable. The food, service and friendliness of the staff is always top notch. This particular show was TERRIFIC.

There's always a good show to see there and I've never been disappointed in the food, service and

The Catalina Jazz Club is a warm, fun place to spend an evening out. The Steve Tyrell show was fabulous. Steve is easy going, has a great voice,
provides lots of background info on the songs and
the writers of those songs.

This was a great show. Tierney is talented and has
charisma with the audience. Her band (3) was very
strong. Loved her versions of the songs she sang.

My husband and I had THE BEST TIME at this show! The good time started while waiting in line, believe it or not, as all of the people around us out in the lobby were so nice and so "up" for this show. We waited for about 30-40 minutes in a great...continued

As always, a great place to see/hear live jazz. The food is excellent, but a little pricey, which makes saving a few $$$ with Goldstar a nice idea.

Rachelle Ferrell is one of a kind, astonishing, amazing, a sensation. She's impossible to describe, but I'll try anyway: imagine if something outdoors -- some force in nature that is very delicate and tender but also mighty and even dangerous --...continued

Steve Tyrell was fantastic, his band was great! The audience was so thrilled they gave him a standing ovation. A wonderful evening!

The performers were 5 star! What a shame an established venue like Catalina can't get their act together! A sellout crowd to see Corky Hale, Eloise laws and Freda Payne was subjected to terrible delayed service, overpriced food and when the bill...continued

Review from Grace Villagomez

I had such an awesome time at this show. I took a friend from Greece and a friend from Ireland who don't really get the jazz scene at home. They loved it! Kurt Elling is an amazing and talented performer. Ernie Watts is classic. Loved it all.

Love the venue, and love John Pizzarelli's playing and singing. But I'm lukewarm about last night's performance because it was so pat and preprogrammed. The patter with his wife was scripted schtick. And her singing - while probably delicious in...continued
