The sound system sucked and it was too loud, so there was distortion, which made it worse. I went to the lobby and saw people leaving after about 2 numbers. People leaving said it was too loud. No one in management cared.
I sat 6 feet away from the stage at Blue Note in New York when I saw Chris Botti before and it wasn't too loud there. But in the first tier of the Kravis Center it was blasting, especially the trumpet and the violin. Maybe it is because all those Palm Beach people are so old and hard of hearing so they pump up the sound?
So for those reasons I have to honestly say, Chris Botti sucked at the Kravis Center April 21, 2013. Not like my last review when he was at the Blue Note.
Chris, send someone out to areas of the concert hall to see what is doing next time. It was loud everywhere I went to look for an empty seat. I finally stuffed my ears with toilet paper and settled down in a box seat. I will never go to the Kravis Center for a concert again. One thing about the Arsht Center, Knight Concert Hall, they get the sound right...always.
