How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
You knew it would be bad when you looked around in this 300 seat venue and counted about 50 people, Without a doubt, the worst performance I have seen in years. This act belongs in the FREE Summer Lunchtime in the Park series. The soloist was horribly off key (and certainly not "featured" as she sang 1/2 of a 3 minute duet with the Neil-wannabe), the back-up singers were gross-looking and half of the band looked like they stepped out of the geriatric ward. I don't know where the group found the harpist but she was the only redeeming member in the show. Ther was nothing innovative here, just another Neil Diamond karaoke band. And to think I bought FOUR seats and asked my friends to reimburse me for their tickets. I pity those who paid full price. Any way to get my money back on this one? In a word, pathetic.
