    Amazing show! Don’t miss!
    We saw the Charleston Christmas Special, which was amazing. Would highly recommend. The cast was probably one of the most talented I had ever seen at a variety show. Their voices were terrific combined with the dancing made for a terrific show. The little girl and boy were just a joy to watch. I hate to single anyone out because every cast member was show-stopping. How Great Thou Art brought tears to my eyes. I cannot quit raving about this show.

    Fun music hall- The Commodores rocked the house!
    We saw the Commodores kick off their 2024 tour with friends. They did an EXCELLENT- job. My tickets were 3 rows from the front and we were able to interact with the performers. The seats are sloped so that if a tall person is in front, you can still see. Very nice and clean theatre. Not too large so you can have in intimate experience. Parking is ample- both behind the event and a block away.

    Fabulous venue
    What a wonderful venue! We attended a concert by Leonid and Friends and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had gotten great seats on the 5th row to the right. The show was phenomenal and it was a great place for them to play, as it is not a huge concert venue. It felt cozy and the sound was amazing. We were surprised that my husband had to leave his pocket knife at the box office to be retrieved later. Unfortunately we forgot about it when we left the concert. When we realized it almost an hour later, my husband ran back to see if someone was still there so he could get it back. (It was a very sentimental piece given to him by our son and we were the the next morning.) He was able to get someone there to let him in to see if he could get it back. One person couldn’t help him but went to get someone else. That person was able to get it for him. They didn’t have to do that. They could have said sorry come back in the morning, but they didn’t and we really appreciated that. Just wanted to give them a shout out for going above and beyond for us.

My daughter and I assisted Leonid & Friends (music group from Russia that features the music of Chicago and other similar bands) during their concert at the Music Hall. The venue is perfect for such an event and historic in nature. Be advised that parking is of a premium in the area. However, if the performers are worth it (as L&F certainly are), it is time well spent!

In the last year or so, my wife and I have heard the Indigo Girls and Bruce Hornsby. This is a perfect place for music. I don't think there is a bad seat in the whole place. It reminds me of a larger concert hall, and they took away all the distant, far-away, and obstructed view seats, leaving only relatively close up seats with direct line of sight and sound. And the wine prices are reasonable too! We love this place.

Went to Tesla concert while in Charleston. The band sounded awesome. Loved the venue. Our seats were upstairs in balcony area. The staff were friendly and helpful. Parking garage next door was convenient and cost $5 for this event. They sell beer and wine at reasonable prices. I live almost 6 hours away but would return to this venue for another concert.

After 2 years of rescheduling due to covid, finally able to attend the Kenny Wayne Shepherd concert. Very efficient procedures to get covid check, security check, and entry. Very friendly staff and an excellent concert. Kenny Wayne was incredible and special guest Ally Venable was amazing. Just a great experience.

We saw Threw Dog Night here. The venue was great, charming. Accoustics were good. Getting in and out was simple easy screening process. Will visit here again.

First time at this Venue! Front row was great, except they added
Pit Seats in front of me after I bought tickets when they 1st went on sale, NOT KOOL, OR FAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The wine was $7.00 & $9.00 per glass I'm sure they paid $3-$4
A bottle! Nasty!!! The tickets were $30 for any seat, very reasonable! But $8.00's for print at home service change?????
Rediculous!!!!!!! Parking garage close by $5.00 not too bad.
I liked the small venue under 700 seats. Stadium style, and upper balcony so good view! Clean bathrooms but only a few stalls Not convenient long lines!!! Should be a code requiring the proper amount!!!! The security at the front door was probably More for curtailing the bringing in of you own decent booze as opposed to searching for metal with their detectors!

Agree with Shar1965 that the Motown Christmas Show was awesome. We had no clue about CMH's existence in spite of our trips to Charleston but discovered it on one of our walks. We figured we could grab tickets at the door. NOT! The Show was sold out save for one remaining ticket. The Box Office staff said they could sell us that ticket and place a nice folding chair next to that seat insofar as the handicapped space was not spoken for. The seats were great and the show wonderful. Our advice would be to make sure you buy tix in advance as CMH appears to be very popular with locals, especially at the Holidays. Although we walked from our hotel, we noticed there was not a lot of parking nearby, certainly not on the street. We did see some people walking to what appeared to be a parking lot. (P.S. Adult beverages are served.)
