“KBLX concert”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The singers did not have a live band. It was a disappointment.
We paid for a performance live band, back-up singers. This is what I go to a concert to hear. If I wanted to hear a sound track I would have palyed my CD's at home or in the car in surround sound.
Artists & KBLX you get a thumbs down and a get it right ticket. I will not be attending an event in the futire if this happens again.

“Nice Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The Paramount, in general, has great musical groups. They offer 2/3 sections to purchase drinks, so that everyone isn't all bunched up waiting. Parking can be a bear, so arrive early.

“Spectacular Historic Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Stunning architecture, and an Oakland landmark. This should be designated a historic site if it has not been already. The outside does not do the interior justice. They simply do not build theaters like this any more.

“A rare gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Beautifully restored classic theatre with great acoustics located on Broadway in downtown Oakland. The neighborhood has many great bars, restaurants and the equally stunning classic Fox Theatre is nearby.
