EXCEEDED OUR HIGHEST EXPECTATIONS!
Great concert in terrific venue. Each of the 6 band members were soloworthy artists, and Boz Scaggs is in top form! Varied playlist, familiar and not, nice rapport w audience.

AMAZING PERFORMANCE AT ORLANDO HARD ROCK
Box Scaggs and his band were excellent! His voice is still clear and strong! The song choices were a perfect blend of the old nostalgia we came to love him for and his new bluesier sound from his most recent album. We loved the cuts from his newest album that we purchased it on iTunes on our way home 😊

STILL GOT IT
Boz gave a great performance. A bit surprised that he pulled the plug after only an hour, (The Eagles played fir 2.5 hours at a recent concert)after which he played for 20 minutes to the now de rigeur encores. His voice was surprisingly strong. Missed hearing my personal fave-Sierra-but this was a good show.

BOZ SCAGGS IN KNOXVILLE
Just saw Boz at the Tennessee Theater and - wow!!! I grew to love him in my 20's and was wondering how he would be tonight. The voice, the lungs, the guitar are just amazing. I would have stayed to listen to him all night. Band members were also awesome!

NICE MELLOW EVENING
Boz has been on my list of folks I have NOT seen live, and this date and venue finally worked with my schedule. It was a smooth, laid back evening of great listening. I did notice the band had some hiccups here and there, but nothing terrible and I guess not necessarily all that noticeable to a majority of the crowd based on the reviews. But, at 74 years old I could not believe how intact his voice was. He must have never smoked; good for him = good for us! Thoroughly enjoyed him. He never struggled once, just a smooth transition from song to song and he was so at ease, we could have been sitting in his living room. Side note - at 51 years old, my friend and I may have been the youngest people there...lol. Maybe too mellow for some of the younger crowd, but we really enjoyed the show. :)

BOZ SCAGGS AT THE STATE THEATER, MINNEAPOLIS
Great show; we've seen him many times at the State. We did note the absences of Miss Monet, his backing vocalist who has been a huge part of the show for many years, and a percussionist, who used to keep the band together through his musical direction; there was also has a new drummer (a very good one) . We thought the band was slightly less tight and sound engineering a bit off. They did old standards and cuts from more recent albums, a mix we love. The show was close to two hours with the encore. Boz Scaggs is a favorite of ours, and while the changes are noticeable, the show was definitely worth seeing. We hope he continues the annual tradition of visiting here, and the State Theater is an awesome venue with good acoustics and stunning architecture.
Mark from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
One hour show plus two encores, comprising 2 songs and one song, respectively. Boz's voice sounds great. Needs to play more from Silk Degrees album. Venue is old but sounds great.
