“Awful place, awful management”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Maggie Rose was billed as main act. "Opening" act, Morrison Brothers were marginal at best, a mix of country and rock and roll that was mixed badly. We waited and waited and waited for Maggie Rose. Finally were told the opening act would be playing until 9:30-9:45. The show started at 8 with doors opening at 7. Even the Rolling Stones don't allow their opening act to play for that long. We have tried to support Maggie Rose but never again. We left an asked for a refund but were told no. There are very few seats - we did get some - so many folks stood forever. A cheaply put together venue that insults people's intelligence and takes them to the cleaners. Nothing more than a crappy bar with a huge cover charge. Wine was awful too. No mixed drinks. We have not heard good things but wanted to try and now will never return.

“Neat theater, intimate setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

Saw The Fixx here in August 2014. Neat intimate setting to see a band up close. Not a lot of seats on the ground level, so be prepared to stand or sitting in a cheap folding chair for the entire show. Overall, the place looks like it needs a little upgrade, but I still enjoyed being here. Walking distance to food and parking, safe neighborhood.

“Leesburg Reincarnation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

After having taken my now 30 year old daughter to the TallyHo years ago to see The Little Mermaid, I was looking forward to seeing how the transformation from a movie house to a live music venue had fared. The website had made the early ticket purchase very easy and in spite of the fact that the marquee had misspelled the performer's name, I still had high hopes for success
as I entered last night (again with my daughter). It is still a work in progress, but they do have the rudimentary elements in place. The venue is of decent size, the seating was a bit haphazard with some tables, folding chairs, standing tables, open space--the high ceilings make it appear quite roomy. The stage is of moderate size, but workable except there is no wing space which makes exiting/entering a bit awkward for the performers. The green room is at the top of a set of stairs on one side of the "auditorium" so R&R between sets is tough as well. Food and drink are available at reasonable prices. The staff is friendly, helpful and hardworking. The acoustics are above average, the lighting a bit overdone but "enthusiastic".
I think with a few more months of trial and error Leesburg might have a real winner here after years without any sort of art/music downtown venue. I look forward to a repeat performance soon.

“Beware Before You Go!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

5 stars for the Marshall Tucker Band and their opening band, the Smallwood Brothers. A shame I can't say the same for this theater. I unknowingly paid $40 for a SRO ticket because THERE ARE NO SEATS! If sitting is your thing, well that would be $100. Everyone was complaining. They could have at least rented some folding chairs. Since I have a bad back and the girl next to me was in a cast, a very kind woman snagged two chairs from behind a stage curtain. This concert was a Christmas gift for my husband and he was happy in spite of standing for over four hours so that's what counts. We won't be back.

“For Loudoun Co, this is a Hot Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Very few live music venues in Loudoun County and the Tally Ho is a much needed night spot.
Good size stage, full bar and ample seating plus plenty of room for dancing in front of stage. Saw Nocoda last night which is a Led Zeplin cover band, they were really good. The place attracted a real nice clientele. I will be checking the calendar often to see when I can go back. The Gin Blossoms are playing in Feb..... Grab dinner before the concert at Palio, Lightfoot, La Lou Bistro or the awesome Wine Kitchen and you have yourself a great evening planned.
