How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I wanted my money back. The group that performed was a 3-piece jazz ensemble of a lead guitarist, electric bass and drummer. I did not think they were the advertised group, rather a last-minute fill in for a group (World Jam) that either decided not to show or due to poor planning on Old Town Theater's part. Their sound was good, but they missed notes, it was hard to understand some of the lyrics, or even what the group lead was saying. They did not seem pleased there was a small crowd which did not interact well with the performers anyway. I guess I was spoiled seeing Anita King on my first trip. This group was so-so and the crowd was unresponsive. It left me with a very poor impression of Alexandria's jazz scene and Old Town Theater's ability to book and promote jazz events.
