Way, way too loud. We follow Joe around the country and the last three shows have been loud to the point of painful. He sounds so much better when you can hear everyone, not just the bass and distortion. He's the best. We had trouble understanding songs that we have memorized. Please Joe....turn it down from 10 to about 7 or 8.

MOMENTS OF BRILLIANCE BUT LACKING ANY FEEL AT ALL
Joe ALWAYS is a great performer...the 'band' sans Reese on keyboards is mediocre at best...Anton Fig on drums was a blessing , Michael Rhodes is was a much needed muse to Joes' guitar work. The new band members are very good in their own space but so far not a cohesive touring unit from what my ears were telling me. The sound mixing team should all be FIRED, totally over done and not focusing on venue specific sound quality. Cmon Joe you can do way way better...stop focusing on new marketing items to SELL and focus on what you do best playing those amazing vintage guitars and putting on a killer show.

JOE WAS GREAT....THE SOUND NOT SO MUCH.
Joe and Reece Wynans. kept up their end of the bargain. However, the speakers were so loud, that they drowned out Joe's and the girls singing. He shredded the guitar all night long Awesome...including a different guitar for each song. We saw him at the Warner Theatre and few years back and the whole production was Perfect.

GREAT MUSICIANS BUT TOO LOUD
I was invited to the Joe Bonanassa concert in Chicago by a friend. All of the musicians were first class. Unfortunately, I felt like I was being assaulted by ruthless volume all night. As soon as it started, I couldn’t wait for it to end. I could not understand the words being sung by Joe or his backup vocalists. Volume does not equate to energy or excitement. Not sure why these artists believe it does. It was actually painful. Had I not been invited by a friend I would have left.

JOE B. AT THE RIVERSIDE
Enjoyed the show immensely, but thought the sound mix left much to be desired. Very muddy on the bass line. One would think that could be corrected with a sound check. Could not hear backup singers, and some of Joe's solos were unintelligible. But still was a fun night and would do it again next year and hope by then he figures the sound thing out.

NOT AS GOOD AS THE FIRST TIME
I saw Joe when he came to Buffalo five years ago. The show is stellar the sound was fantastic , this time, not so much the Soundsystem had a massive hum in the left cluster that remained there pretty much throughout the show sitting where I was up in the third row balcony. I thought the sound will be great. It was terrible p the left speaker cluster had a 60 cycle hum throughout the entire show at one point it went away, but it came back . The mix was also horrendous. It was blazing not that I mind out loud show, but it was the mix was all out of context the vocals or rather buried there was no warmth in the low end. The mix totally lacked soul.
I was rather disappointed that he did not have his horn players with him . Also, really missed Anton Figon the drums

JB & THE BAND ARE DEF 5 STAR, SOUND DISTORTION OVERPOWERED THE GOODNESS
Saw JB @ Shea last night. First time @ Shea...gorgeous. I found the sound SO LOUD that the vocals and some of the instrumental was grossly distorted which was a big disappointment. When Joe spoke, forget trying to understand. I think the sound techs should set up and actually listen from various points of the audience. Clearly what those on stage were hearing wasn't what the rest of us were.
