BOZ SCAGGS BOSTON.
The Boston show was a monster. I can’t name the band, since their is no “program” I can find, but the backup vocals and music talents were all tens. Here’s the bi brag: somebody on stage said it was the last show of this tour and they felt like doing encores; I counted 8of them. Eight. More than seven. Not three. Most of the bad entirely sweated through their clothes. So the music was a ten. The sound was a nine the seating was a two. Don’t go to the Wilbur unless you are five foot five or less. The seats are obscenely small. Smaller seats than Southwest Airlines. Seats smaller than a middle class tax break. Small. Thanks for a great show, Boz. Best encores I will ever see.

BOZ SKAGGS AT CELEBRITY THEATER IN PHOENIX
One of the greatest concerts I have ever seen. I've seen Boz 3 times in my life and this was the greatest concert of all. Loved that he sang so many songs from the album silk degrees. And his New stuff was great tOO. The band's was phenomenal especially the guitar player.silk degrees will live on forever!

BOZ PITTSBURGH 11/6/18
Excellent show!!! Boz never disappoints and his voice has gotten better with age. His music from the New York Rock and Soul Review era is impeccable. The venue was excellent and the acoustics top shelf! If you like rock/jazz/soul music don’t miss this show! Don’t forget how accomplished a guitar player Boz is! THE BOZ RULES!!!’n
Jeanine from Nashville, Tennessee
Did not disappoint. I’ve been a fan since the 1970’s Boz has only gotten better. Incredible voice, consummate gentleman entertainer!! His new blues excellent, old stuff always wonderful. Three encores, one of my top concerts of all time ! Can’t beat the Ryman as a venue

BOB SCAGGS - STILL HAS THE CHOPS!
He and his band gave an inspiring performance. Boz's voice is amazingly intact. So is his guitar mastery. The rest of the crew were all top notch. Two encores made the program last two hours and by then, all of us old-timers were ready to hit the road with smiles on our faces. He played several from the latest Blues album (do we still call them albums?) plus some great Boz Scaggs standards - even the "disco" ones like "What Can I Say?" The venue was super funky and old school. Very intimate. Auditorium rows are close together so, if you are long legged, BEWARE.

BOZ SCAGGS STATE THEATRE MINNEAPOLIS
Boz and his band were phenomenal!!! His voice is still fantastic as if he hasn't missed a year and the back up musicians were tight and top notch. I absolutely loved every minute of the show. The crowd was right there with me enjoying the evening through the 3 encores and never wanting him to stop!! Such a great evening of music. Love you Boz and band!!

BOZ SCAGGS UPTOWN THEATER, KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI
Boz was in top form. His band and the energy they presented brought out the best not only in the performers but in the audience as well. Great variety in the set list and two encores. Thank you for coming to K.C. Hope to seem Boz Scaggs again soon.

REV BOZ AT THE MOTHER CHURCH
The "Rev" Boz sang his sermon to his followers in outstanding voice and still wins hearts with his gentlemenly demeanor and fine choice of band mates. A great show and well worth seeing anywhere, but The Ryman is acoustically supreme!!
DRF from Alexandria, KY
The evening was absolutely fantastic - from opening with Jeff LeBlanc to the very last song that Boz sang. He and his band are amazing. If you ever get the chance, definitely go and see his show.
Fox from Calgary, Alberta
Boz and his accomplished band commanded the room with music that was timeless and excellent brought back amazing memories
Chris from Austin, Texas
This was my first time to see him and it was most excellent! He went on promptly at 9 p.m. and played until 10:42 p.m. so it was almost two hours long. My seats were great as most at ACL Live are. I would see him again and highly recommend you do the same, also.
Joie from Austin, Texas
WHAT A BLAST!
Boz was terrific. Joy from the first downbeat to the Chuck Berry finale! Tight band rolling from one song into another smooth as silk. The momentum on the jams was fabulous with some killer lead guitar solos. The ballads were perfect and gorgeous. Thank you man. We loved it. Great night. Till next time ...
Dianne Quan from Calgary, Alberta
What a treat to see my alltime favourite Boz Scaggs in Calgary. A truly mesmerizing performance for the 90 minutes performance... from Jo Jo at the outset to Spare me a Dime and everything in between with a real emphasis on the songs we grew up with from Silk Degrees. Boz's vocals are better than ever and such a smooth and soulful delivery on every number. I saw him at the Jubilee in Calgary but this performance seemed more intimate and relaxed. Awesome, spell binding and could have stayed all night to be transported back to the ethereal 70's and Boz's wonderful soulful music.
L, R J and T from Baltimore, Maryland
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.
Pam Glassburn from Orlando, Florida
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 😊
Bruce A. from Sarasota, Florida
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.
Julie Burgin-Straub from Knoxville, Tennessee
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!
Dr. Von from Cave Creek, AZ
TWO HOURS OF GREATNESS!
Attending this show after the long wait was like being set free from all of the garbage that has been going on for the past year and a half. The show was fabulous! Great musicians, wonderful variety, lots of classic hits, and Boz can still hit the high notes! This was medicine for my soul - loved it!
Beverly Ham from Indianapolis, Indiana
BOZ SKAGGS LUBBOCK OVER THE TOP!
Phenomenal concert. From the first song through the last (almost two hours later) this man and his band delivered to an amazed audience. Truly the best acoustics in this new auditorium. Every seat was great. Loved every song. Extactic over this. So thankful.
Karen from Northern NJ
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. :)
Dennis from Minneapolis, Minnesota
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.
