Review of Altamont Theater

Have attended a few shows, and this a very nice location for catching small, intimate shows. The sound quality is superb, and not so loud as to be uncomfortable. The seat in back are elevated, thus everyone has a view of the stage. The fit and finish of the building itself deserves a nod, nice choice of materials (Leed certified) Good shows can sell out quickly, so don't wait.

Had the distinct pleasure of seeing Jonathan Edwards perform at the Altamont Theater. The room seats about 120 and seating is a combination of tables and chairs. There is a small bar downstairs that serve wine and brews (nice selection!). The sound was perfect. JE signed CD's at the merch table after the show. Staff was friendly and helpful. The theater is off Patton on Church street. We had no problem finding a place to park.

Atlamont Theater is relatively new to Asheville and already it is developing the well deserved reputation for the best listening room in a town of many fine music venues. First off are the superb acoustics and sound system, really state of the art design and equipment, all manned by a top-notch sound person. The sound guy gets a great feed right off the bat and adjusts carefully throughout the show. Performers frequently comment on stage about the quality of the sound. Next and most important The Altamont brings in really great acts. Just go there website to see the acts many of which you would expect to see in larger venues. The mix is electic from jazz to bluegrass to old timey to chamber music. All of this is done in a small intimate room with maybe 180 seats, making the performance line-up all the more impressive. Last, don't miss the downstairs beer and wine bar, featuring many of Asheville's best microbrews,

I have gone to altamont for several shows with entertainers! It is a great venue for music, with a great sound person and wonderful acoustics. You can have a beer and really hear who ever is playing!

A recent discovery, the free (contributions welcomed) Tuesday night jazz concerts, are a feast!! The musicians have been amazingly talented. It is a delightful addition to our Asheville music scene.
