"I was thoroughly impressed with the concert. I don't know how others feel, but it was just a little more 'personable' than Orchestra Hall."
It is my favorite place for music venues. I saw Justin Hayward and now Todd Rundgren and hopefully many more.

It was excellent. I am excited for the next time I attend the Ames Center because it was amazing- parking was close to the door (and we could find parking!), the whole place was clean, it was very easy to find our seats (plus the staff at the door who checked our tickets were very funny), and the overall experience of being there was pleasant.
