I have seen Brule perform in the past, they are great. I called this morning to ask about the trail ride and was told they were all day starting at 9:45 AM and the last would go out at 4:00 PM. I asked for directions and she told me how to get there. We left our hotel and drove straight... More

We arrived on the very last day of the season. It was a great addition to our vacation especially because there are few night time activities that are child friendly in the area. It was both educational and entertaining. A few pointers: 1) Spend the extra for the VIP seating (chairs with backs near the front) but remember it is... More

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and talking to people in the area, we decided to attend this concert. We were not disappointed. The outdoor venue in the middle of the Black Hills is magical in the evening. The story told by Brule through their songs is moving and inspiring. The costumes and dance that are paired with the music... More

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the Brule. Great music and dancers. Gave us quite an insight into the native American culture. A must see.

Like nothing you have every seen- great dancing and music and powerful story from the lead singer/founder of band. Kids loved it too! Pay for the reserved seats.

If you come to the black hills, you must attend Brulee! It is a native American concert, with native American dance. You can meet the performers after the show. One of the very few places you will visit that that they don't gouge you in prices for food and beverages. Well worth the money.

We went to see this show while in the Black Hills last week with our grandson. I've seen a number of native American music demonstrations but have never been so moved as I was by this one. The music is a very pleasant joining of Indian music updated for typical American sensitivities (songs have a melody are not too long)... More

It was an amazing insight to the North American Indian experience, in a contemporary setting. Insight into their culture and ritualistic dances were performed in an upbeat and contemporary form. A family must see if you're in the area!

What can I say? I love Brule! Ever since I saw the video PBS played a few years ago, I've been dying to see them in person.

We enjoyed this show immensely. Lots of rich culture and enjoyable music and dancing. There is food on site if you need it. Doors opened at six, with show starting at 7:30. We arrived pretty early, but it wasn't very crowded, so no need. Perhaps it is more crowded sometimes. It got quite cool the night we attended - bring... More
