I really like the concert at the State. Sound was very good. Box office was helpful in getting my online purchased tickets with out any hassle right before the show. I would definitely attend another concert at this venue.

Saw the Tedschi/Trucks Band tonight here, and it was great. Beautiful venue, very historic, easy parking in the area, several pubs and restaurants to hang out in. Will definitely go again.
