The best entertainment of our life now!
Aug 2021
We have been coming to the Belfry Theatre for many years, and love every show that we have seen.
We come especially from Chicago, and go home with a song in our heart!
Michael Deutsch and his fabulous staff make you feel right at home when you arrive, and also greets you on your way out! I recommend that everyone come and join in the festivities to brighten up your life!

PS:There are delicious cookies, and yummy dove bars served as a special treat!

We saw Chicago Rewired here last night! The band was amazing and the venue is so quaint and welcoming it made for a truly special, fun experience. If this is typical of the talent that plays here, you can’t go wrong!

The Belfry does everything right!

Wonderful venue. Small = no bad seats and an up-close intimate feeling. Specializes in "Tribute" performers who try to emulate, as closely as possible, the look, phrasing, and note-for-note sound of the legend they've chosen to represent. We have seen "On the Border" (the premier Eagles tribute band out of Charlotte, NC) here three times (they come each year and we drive 5 hours to see them). If you love the Eagles, you will not be disappointed by this band. They even stick around in the lobby afterward to chat with the audience. The owner (? manager) who does the evening's introductions is welcoming and informative, as well as witty and charming. There is wine for a nominal fee, complimentary water, cookies at intermission and a Dove bar as you leave AND (a feature near and dear to my heart) their dance floor is in the rear so that those, who have been fortunate enough to score those treasured down-front seats, have a clear view of the performers rather than glimpses of them, now and then, between a bunch of flailing arms and legs. Way to go Belfry! You do everything right!

Great venue- great band.
Aug 2021 • Couples
Just got back from seeing On The Border here. After having a glass of wine (which they just started serving!) we walked into this charming, intimate venue. Not a bad seat in the house. The band was amazing! They nailed all the best Eagles songs and their harmony was right on. And how fun we get chocolate chip cookies at intermission and Dove ice cream bars as you’re leaving. We drove up from Chicago suburbs- took only an hour and so easy to park. We have tix for Chicago and Abba. But it’ll be hard to top On The Border- They were so good!!

A first time that wasn't painful
Aug 2021
My husband and I, along with my MIL and her bestie from high school went to see On the Border last night - which is an incredible Eagles tribute band. Let me tell you that these guys from NC are AMAZING!!! It was an absolutely fabulous show and the venue was great. It was our first time to the Belfry (located near the intersection of Hwy 50 and 67 in Walworth County) and I loved how clean everything was, from the theater area to the bathrooms. The volunteers that helped with parking were wonderful as well. Just know that in order to park in the lot by the building, you need to have a handicap placard, otherwise you park across the street. But, even that isn't a big hassle as they have volunteer 'crossing guards' to help you across. But beyond that, one of the biggest takeaways for me is this - anyone that's been to concerts/shows at different venues knows that you're paying around $4 for a simple bottle of water. The Belfry far exceeded any expectation that I could have had...they gave every one of us a complimentary bottle of water upon arrival! Then, when we were leaving after the show, they offered a chocolate chip cookie and an ice cream Dove bar! It definitely shows that they value their clientele and aren't looking to nickel and dime you for every little thing. It's well worth the hour drive to enjoy a show at the Belfry! We'll be back!

Love The Belfry Theater
Aug 2021 • Couples
We saw Dean Z last night at the Belfry. It was my husband’s and my first time there. It was a wonderful theatre! Intimate and soooo much fun! We will be going back in September to see ABBA. Please take a look at the amazing performances coming up and do yourself a favor and buy a couple tickets. Only 1 hour from Rockford. Comfy seats and every seat is a great view of the stage!

Not sure where you all were at this evening but I was once again supporting our local music venue and may I mention one of the best right here in #walworthcounty! Not only tonight, but every time I have attended a show at Belfry Music Theatre it has been nothing but ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! From Mike and the team of volunteers to sound, lighting and staging and did I mention they serve 🍷 during intermission? Oh! Before I forget the unbelievably and irresistible Dove bar when you leave. So here is the deal folks…you need to go and experience this venue for yourself…not a bad seat in the house! If you happen to grab a couple of complimentary tickets which is rare, please remember that this venue would not be possible without donations or volunteers. I was fortunate to have received tickets for the show this evening but couldn’t leave tonight without making a donation to the foundation as I am very grateful to have this venue in my backyard. Casi Joy, you are a beautiful soul, full of life and love that you shared with all of us this evening. We felt honored that you were here sharing what you love to do. Continue to move mountains and give goosebumps to all with your voice and presence! ❤️☀️🌈🌹till next time🎶

Unforgetable Evenings
Jul 2021
7/29/2021 Heart by Heart concert at the Belfry Music Theatre was one of the most surprising and incredible concerts I have attended here. What a fabulous night! I am a member of the Belfry and can't believe anyone has not yet discovered this jewel in our midst. Warm, welcoming and accommodating staff and volunteers make you feel at home and comfortable. Seating, lighting and sound is top notch and the caliber of the tribute bands for the most part is incredible. Variety of shows for everyone. This week Heart by Heart had the building and crowd rocking (phenomenal guitar work); last week, Terry Barber had me mesmerized and enchanted with his Andrew Lloyd Webber tribute; and yet to come Neil Diamond, Chicago, Eagles and Rolling Stones tributes...some personal favorites. Easy location, easy parking and the value of most of these shows is priceless and a memory/experience to remember. There are not enough positive adjectives to express the joy of the Belfry!

Great Experience

A great evening! Experienced excellent entertainment, a James Bond tribute, in an old fashioned small theater. Everything from parking to refreshments to seating was very well done.
