We attended for the first time to see the Soweto Gospel Choir from South Africa. The center was very nice w/ Theater quality. You got assistance with seating and the view was good. We were on the lower level halfway back from the stage. We drove down from Benicia, CA and will visit again.

Recently completely remodeled, now with fabulous acoustics. Every seat is good. Small venue, so no seat is far from stage. I have been to concerts and other performances at approximately half or slightly ,ore than half the cost of same performances in venues in San Jose and San Francisco.

For a sleepy little town a wonderful place to spend an evening. The last group we saw was the 10 tenors (an Austalian group). Great acustics and beautiful venue. We go at least 6 times per year.

We recently attended a Boz Scaggs performance. The Sunset is small enough for everyone to have a good seat and decent acoustics. Easy in, nice seats, easy out.

We have been to numerous concerts and events here. The remodel is great. There are lots of volunteers to help you find your way around. Parking is available, as are snacks at intermission. It's easy to see the seating availability and purchase tickets online.

We have gone to the Sunset Cultural Center. The building itself has nice architecture. They put on many shows from ballet, symphony, to tribute bands. There is free parking at their main parking lot. We generally look at their web site and/or face book page to see what shows are going on.

Just one of the best concert halls I have ever been to. the design of the building inside and out is very attractive and accommodating. Seating is comfortable; the hall seems intimate and good views from most seats. Acoustics are great!

Wonderful acoustics and a beautiful setting. We've seen several concerts here and have enjoyed the quality of sound every time. We usually sit on the upper balcony.

We attended the Carmel Bach Festival for the first time and this was a lovely venue for the Bach St. Matthew Passion. The setting also had a lovely feeling of a hometown, personal event, with friendly volunteers assisting.
