Modesto long lacked a real venue, this place more than filled that void. The Gallo Center is gorgeous. There are no bad seats. We have attended several events since its opening and can't wait for the next one!

I have been to the Gallo now about a dozen times. We have seen great plays there. My favorite was Memphis. It was back in the 40's when black people could not enter a white neighborhood. It is a must see for every generation. Not only for the History but to understand the racist element that was back in the... More

1st time I went to the Gallo was to see Huey Lewis and the News back in 2014 I believe. I have since been back to see Rock Concerts, Joan Jett, The Monkees, Comedy Steven Wright and Blues to name a few. Sound is great and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house.

Top notch entertainment locally without having to make the trek to the Bay Area. The shows are wonderful with first rate acts. Central West Ballet is spectacular and always very professional. A must see!

I haven't been to the Bay Area in a few years- Gallo Center for the Arts brings in the entertainment I want to see, and it's minutes from my house! There isn't a bad seat in the house and the acoustics are great!

I and my family always enjoy a night at Gallo Center: luxurious setting, great views, good entertainment. The only criticism I might have is that the ushers can be stuffy and a bit uptight and overly controlling at times. They take their jobs too seriously and give people a hard time about very minor issues. Otherwise, I would highly recommend... More
