“Messed up a good thing”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Three of my friends and myself have been going to Rockbox every two months for the last 6 years. We were so dissappointed when we went to see Pure Platinum and found out all the previous cast was gone and they have four teenagers that only do teeny bopper music. We could not understand the words because the drummer drowned them out and we found out he was playing that loud, so we would not recognize that they sang flat. If this is an example of what is too com, we will not be going again. They have ruined a good thing.

Dear Hazel S,

Thank you for your long time patronage! As you know, Rockbox has made a dramatic shift from being a single show to being a venue that houses a large array of music and entertainment experiences. We were so glad to host the same show for 7 years, but have adapted to this new model to better serve the wide variety of music tastes and preferences.

We would encourage you to try another of our experiences in the near future, in the hopes that we may offer something that appeals more to what you enjoy.

Dear Jayne O,

Thank you for the review, one of the sayings that has made it's way into our business is that, "If you had your preacher sitting on your right and your mama on your left, you should never feel embarrassed laughing at a Rockbox joke!"

Please come again and thank you for joining us on your travels!

“Nice local entertainment”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We saw a Christmas show that we brought our grandkids to and it didn't connect with them as this seemed to be geared more to an adult clientel. We still enjoyed it though.

Dear Steve48Texas,

Good work on being a Top Contributor on TripAdvisor! That's a lot of reviews! We are so glad that you came to our Christmas show, but you will be glad to know that we have instituted some major changes in 2014. As of January this year, Rockbox shifted to becoming a venue rather than just a single show. We have bands, tribute acts, musical reviews, and other entertainment offerings hitting our stage every week this year. We hope you can join us for Christmas in 2014 as it will be geared more towards a wider and younger age group.

Thank you for taking the time to post this insightful feedback, it's people like you who help us to improve constantly as a business. If you have any desire to see what all we have going on, just visit us at rockboxtheater.com

“Best show in town”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

You cannot go to Fredericksburg and miss the Rockbox. Especially if in town for the Christmas season. A show that is worthy of New York City, it is entertaining, a great bargain. Truly captivating, involving the audience, not just performing for you, but with you. Go, and enjoy!

Thank you for the kind review. We know that our audience is the MOST important part of our show. It's a huge deal for performers to have people in the seats appreciating their efforts so they love to show their thanks and pull you in.
