We have been going here for a couple of years and have enjoyed the shows we have seen. It doesn't help mentioning them because what appeals for one may not appeal to another. The Center offers a wide spectrum of theater, comedy, music; a school; and a venue for exhibits. With some renovations coming down the line we are very... More

love this place. Much better than the multimillion dollar Green Center.. softer, more intimate, and the seating is multimillion times better.

I've been coming to WF - Luther Burbank Center for over 10 years. A lovely music venue - great sight lines and wonderful acoustics. However... I just experienced the worst concert in my over 40 years of concert going. Somehow the soundman (either from LBC or provided by the headliner, Jeff Beck) managed to thwart the great natural acoustics of... More

Locals put up with the uncomfortable seats, terrible acoustics and general discomforts of this one-time church for years before the Santa Rosa Symphony moved to the glorious Green Center. It might be fine for heavily amplified rock or pop music, but for anything more subtle, it is very poor.

As you visit the wine country.. check the large off road sign to see upcoming and present events.. 1st class and worth having a fine evening meal and THEN attending an event... What a way to relax after a day of wine-tasting.... Highly recommended.......

I could go to an event at WFC every week but I just don't find them that interesting anymore. How many times can we see Chicago or Jackson Browne's acoustic show for pete's sake??!! And Joan Jett??? Oh yeah she had that ONE hit!! It's time to shuffle the deck and bring in some different shows. Please!!!

How lucky we are to have such great talent perform right in our back yard and at very reasonable prices. Comfortable, small feeling theatre with before hand and mid show drinks. Very fun!

The Wells Fargo Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa, also called Luther Burbank Center is a great venue for concerts. It is not very big so all the seats are good and there is plenty of parking.

Wells Fargo Center is now called the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, this is a great place for concerts and entertainment. There are 1,612 seats and the acoustics are good. We just caught Chicago in concert and thoroughly enjoyed it. We saw comedian Jim Gaffigan several months ago and both times our seats were great. We chose "floor" seats... More

A nice venue for concerts. We've seen Jerry Seinfeld, The Chieftains, and other groups here. The venue is not large so all seats are good.
