we love going to there kettering block party to open the season, their $5 TUESDAY and some of the other events. To make a date of it we get the packed lunch boxes, such a great deal and so good. This nice to sit in chairs, bring blankets for the lawn...just really fun for couples and the family.

Small venue the worst lawn seat are better the second tier seating at larger outdoor venues. If a band you want to see is playing here go you won't be disappointed. Very easy in and out parking across the street at the high school free!

Not a bad seat in the house. New improvements are coming in 2015 so it should be even better.Attracts big name artists plus local talent: ie The Band of Flight, which is the Air Force Band from Wright Patterson Air Force Base.

Friendly staff, great seating available, also has lawn seating. Concession stand includes sodas, snacks, sandwiches and alcoholic beverages. During the summer there are a wide range of entertainment groups, good stage, and good lighting. We had a great time.

Good food. Cool cars. Nice Labor Day festival. Music was pretty good as well. Parking was a little tricky but overall it was worth the trip

Attended the Boney James/Brian Culberston smooth Jazz concert. We hadn't been to the Fraze Pavilion in about 5 years. I must say we had the best time. From the time we walked through the ticket gate everything was fantastic. The people who took our tickets were very friendly. We had seats down front and we taken right to our seats.... More

Parking overflows to residential streets around the Fraze. Blocks away is a high crime area according to police. Kettering spends money to blow autumn leaves from the streets so rockers don't see anything out of place as their tour busses roll into the Fraze. Since the Fraze is outdoors it's seasonal and limited to fair weather. Many look forward to... More

Have reviewed the Fraze before but then again, have been here many more times since and The Fraze is very deserving of repeated praise. We're scheduled to see the Moody Blues at the end of this month but recently saw a Led Zeppelin tribute band and had a great time. Have also been to both of the Breakfast With The... More

went to see thwe Avett brothers August 2, 2014. Seating look to be 3,000. Not a big place. Parking was not a problem. In the middle of a residential neighborhood and we parked on the street. We stopped at the Tropics Bar / Restaurant and had no problem getting served or a seat an hour before the show. This place... More
