Hva folk sier
Beres Hammond reggae concert poorly planned and executed!
3,0 av 5 bobleraug. 2019
Det gode: Selvparkeringsplassen ett kvartal fra teatret er $ 20 selv om de er små i størrelse - kom tidlig for å få et parkeringssted. Akustikken til Howard Theatre er veldig bra. Sitteplassene er rimelige. Det dårlige: Her er noen forferdelige ting om hvordan Howard Theatre og spesifikt Beres Hammond konserten den 8/16/19 som jeg deltok på. Den første utgaven er at det var en House DJ som blåste ut trommehinnene våre med intens volummusikk for hans overdrevne spilletid. Han kastet bort tiden vår for godt over 2 år. 5 timer spilletid. Konserten (kun en akt - Beres Hammond) skulle begynne klokken 20. I stedet kom Beres klokka 21.45! Nesten 1 time og 45 minutter senere enn han skulle. Det er latterlig forsinkelse med tanke på at han var den eneste handlingen. DJ-en fra Howard Theatre spilte musikk fra kl. 06.30 til 21.00, hvoretter trommehinnen ble stekt. Da tok EN ANNEN DJ som var jamaicansk (hyggelig fyr for å være ærlig) fra omveien til Beres Hammond etter at gardinen løftet seg (DJ Fano?) Og han bokstavelig talt DJ-er i ytterligere 45 minutter med intens trommehinne - knakende musikk. Hvordan kan du nå ha 2 DJ-er på en reggaekonsert når hovedhandelen skal komme ut klokken 20 og i stedet velger å komme ut kl. Er det Howard Theaters skyld for dårlig planlegging? ? ? Eller er det Beres Hammond som holdt alt oppe? ? Umulig å vite, men hvis du er arena (ledelse av Howard Theatre), har du en plikt til å sørge for at musikalske skuespillene går ut i et kort og rimelig vindu fra den planlagte konserttiden (i dette tilfellet klokka 20.00 ble nesten 22.00). Det er ganske enkelt en av de verste planlagte konsertene jeg har vært på. Wolftrap, Verizon Center og Hamilton har alle hatt store navnekriterier og mindre handlinger som virkelig starter konsertene sine til tiden. Skuffet over utførelsen av en konsert på Howard Theatre! !

The Howard Theatre was remodeled several years ago. For many years it was closed. The remodel brings back the luster to the LaDriot neighborhood in the Shaw district. The venue host many entertainment activities. During our visit we merely went by to see the progress.

The good: The self-parking lot one block from the theater is $20 although small in size- come early to get a parking spot. The acoustics of Howard Theater are very good. The seating is reasonable.
The bad: Here are some awful things about how the Howard Theater and specifically the Beres Hammond concert on 8/16/19 that I attended. The first issue is that there was a House DJ who blew out our eardrums with intense volume music for his overextended playtime. He wasted our time for well over 2.5 hours of playtime. The concert (one act only- Beres Hammond) was supposed to start at 8 pm. Instead Beres came on at 9:45 pm! Nearly 1 hour and 45 minutes later than he was supposed to. That is ridiculous delay considering he was the only act. The DJ of Howard Theater played music from 6:30-9:00 pm after which our eardrums were fried. Then ANOTHER DJ who was Jamaican (nice guy to be honest) from the entourage of Beres Hammond took over after the curtain lifted (DJ Fano?) and he literally DJ's for another 45 minutes of intense eardrum-cracking music. Now how can you have 2 DJ's at a reggae concert when the main act is supposed to come out at 8 pm and instead chooses to come out at 9:45 pm. Is that the fault of Howard Theater for poor planning??? Or is it Beres Hammond who held everything up?? Impossible to know but if you are the venue (Howard Theater management), you have an obligation to make sure the musical acts go out within a short and reasonable window of the planned concert time (in this case 8 pm became almost 10 pm). That is simply one of the worst planned concerts I have been to. Wolftrap, Verizon Center, and Hamilton all have had big name acts and smaller acts that truly start their concerts on time. Disappointed in the execution of a concert at Howard Theater!!

I came here for a standing room only concert. I've been to the Howard Theatre before with no problems but this particular day was the worst concert experience of my life. Doors were supposed to open at 6 but they didn't let people in until 7. Meanwhile a line was forming outside and I was bit by a dozen mosquitos while standing in the back alleyway.

Once inside I was able to get a pretty close to the stage but the HEAT. There was absolutely NO AC the entire time I was there. Even the performers were complaining. Right before the show, a girl passed out in the front row I'm assuming due to heat exhaustion. I loved the performance and the acoustics were great but I couldn't wait to leave and probably would've enjoyed the concert more if I didn't feel like I was in a sauna. The new owners and GM are god awful and the Theatre needs to be put under better management before it gets shut down. Such a disgrace to its history and DC.

I can no longer support this venue.

I went on a party in this wonderful place. Don't know if they provided the music but the evening was perfect with fun people, good drinks and a wonderful ambience. At the end of the vening, my colleague went upstairs to get more drinks (lines were a lot shorter there) then came down to get me since he'd ordered more than he could carry (we were there with a larger group). When we tried to go up we were stoped by a security woman who informed us that the upstairs area was closed and no one was allowed to go up, only down. We told her that we had our drinks up there on which she replied that it's not her problem, no one was allowed to go up. When I got angry and asked how we should get the drinks we just paid, I was told to move away from the stairs, or else. I've never run into such an unfriendly person in my life. We then walked to the other staircase where a guy stod but he was even worse, no one was going up, no matter what, to bad that we just spent a lot of money on drinks. I can understand this kind of behavior in a Nazi concentration camp but I've never been treated like this before in a club and I've been to a lot of places all over the world. A totally great evening was ruined. I never like to complain in fora like this but in Howard Theater's case I'll make an exception.

The theater is unassuming but had lots of character. We went to see a show and the sound system was awesome. I look forward to returning.

First time at this historic building for 1st of it's kind live boxing, and it's quite an experience! Excellent professionally friendly valet parking for $20, A for not having to add the stress of looking for parking at this busy venue. Good street music & dancers nearby was enjoyable, ticket purchase, search, & Pat down was fast & appreciated. Pay extra online for fast entry BUT make sure you know if your tickets are standing only, reserve seating, or ringside. We paid $20 extra per ticket for reserved seats on either side of the floor or upstairs.
It was a large event with 9 awesome artful displays of boxing talent with several TKO battles. Pro Lamont Peterson & brother Anthony graced the stage for our pleasure & Backyard full band filled the stage and rocked their craft. Yes, it was packed, drinks overpriced & drafts flat, witnessed a few tacky incidents but after some growing pains, this woman owned event has all the potential for entertainment greatness...WELL DONE LADIES, u scored a debut KO, A+ for Awesomeness!!! 🏆 Waiting for #2...c u there!!

When purchasing tickets for the Sweet Spot event we knew there would be a difference between VIP tickets and general tickets. According to the website, the VIP people would be given a pre-show and roped off from the general tickets. This is not how this is done. The VIP ticket holders are allowed to enter the building, the general admission ticket holders are required to wait outside (in the freezing cold, might I add) until the pre-show is over (this takes about an hour). The show itself was good, although it was less than what I was expecting as far as an adult show goes. I feel like there was more dedicated to selling the drinks than anything else. The drinks were extremely overpriced, even for a theatre. I don't think we would go again.

This was FIRST and LAST experience with The Howard Theatre! If I could give negative stars - this venue would definitely get a negative star rating. I attended the Layla Hathaway event onn Friday June 9th and the set up for this concert was totally inappropriate for the genre of music and the age group of the audience.

Layla Hathaway would fall under Jazz, easy listening genre. So the atmosphere and ambiance is relaxed, grown-up crowd. More a super club where people would pay to sit, eat dinner, drink,and enjoy Layla's performance.

This venue got it ALL wrong!!! First, there was not enough seating for the concert goers. They had the nerve to remove all the tables on the main floor area resulting in practically zero seating for general admission ticket holders. That type of set up could be understandable for a different genre (hip hop, Go-Go, reggae) but totally inappropriate for this event.

Many folks who I spoke to that had attended events at the Howard Theatre previously were shocked that all the tables were removed on the main floor. If they were going to do that they should have made it clear that general admission tickets would be standing room only.

Second, they failed to plan for elderly attendees, or those with handicap or wheelchair accessible needs. So many folks stood in line outside the venue only to finally get in and find EVERY table "reserved for VIP" with standing only for the general ticket holders for the ENTIRE performance. Again this should have been made very clear at the time of ticket purchase.

The other thing that was totally disrespectful to the customers were that servers were told to insist that patrons close their tab and pay immediately after ordering. When asked the reason. The server we had admitted that the venue wanted to prevent folks from leaving before paying their tab. Not only was that offensive but it confirms why the Howard Theatre has the type of reviews it does. You don't treat customers that way.

At one point they received so many complaints from furious patrons that they started wheeling out chairs for people to sit on in the main floor area during the performance in a poor attempt to rectify the situation! It was the most unorganized and worst treatment I have ever experienced. I will definitely NOT be back!!!
