Fabulous!! Great guitarist! Terrific band! Would see him again tonight if I could! If you get a chance to see it!

5.0 star rating from Boston, Massachusetts


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.

5.0 star rating Lew goldring from Phoenix, Arizona


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 degrees will live on forever!

5.0 star rating Edward from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


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

5.0 star rating 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

5.0 star rating Joe O'Hanlon from Glendale, Ca


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.

5.0 star rating Vicki from Minneapolis, Minnesota


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!!

5.0 star rating Jeff Dance from 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.

5.0 star rating Elfo from Nashville, Tennessee


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!!

5.0 star rating 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.

5.0 star rating Fox from Calgary, Alberta


Boz and his accomplished band commanded the room with music that was timeless and excellent brought back amazing memories

5.0 star rating 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.

5.0 star rating Joie from Austin, Texas


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 ...

5.0 star rating 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.

5.0 star rating L, R J and T from Baltimore, Maryland


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.

5.0 star rating Pam Glassburn from Orlando, Florida


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 😊

5.0 star rating Bruce A. from Sarasota, Florida


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.

5.0 star rating Julie Burgin-Straub from Knoxville, Tennessee


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!

5.0 star rating Dr. Von from Cave Creek, AZ


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!

5.0 star rating Beverly Ham from Indianapolis, Indiana


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.

5.0 star rating Robert Clower from Atlanta Georgia. rnia


The fox in my opinion is hands down the only place I want to see a concert, it's safe and comfortable, every thing you can think of is in that area, box scaggs was pure magic it brought me to tears

5.0 star rating from boise idaho


saw boz at the paramount theater in oakland 1974 . amazing show. he is still an incredible talent. great vocals and his band is excellent my favorite of many amazing concerts over the past 50 years.

5.0 star rating James Krygier from Las Vegas, Nevada


Did not sing Georgia and that was disappointing to many in the crowd.One of his top songs and didn’t sing it why Boz?

5.0 star rating Deb from Las Vegas, Nevada


Excellent concert. Every musician was amazing. Boz Scaggs was fantastic. Great time! Wish there was a policy re: cell phones during concert. So many people were taking pictures and recording throughout the concert. Very distracting and disrespectful!

5.0 star rating Clare stewart from Las Vegas, Nevada


This guy is amazing, his band was wonderful, we would see him again when ge returns to Vegas, we love this guy.

5.0 star rating James Krygier from Las Vegas, Nevada


One of the best shows in recent memory Boz was over the top even though he left out my favorite song Georgia

5.0 star rating Cortie from Los Angeles, California


Boz was great. Band was awesome. Really enjoyed the sound at Fox in Riverside. Super event.

5.0 star rating Cindy from Greenville, South Carolina


WOW - just WOW. He and the entire band were FABULOUS. Can't believe he's still just as good as he ever was after all these years. And what a humbled performer! Just WOW.

5.0 star rating Donna from Greenville, South Carolina


What Can I Say! Excellent concert. The venue was wonderful, more intimate than the monster concert halls. I saw Boz in Minneapolis many years ago and he still has the smooth, jazzy voice we all love. The band was sensational too. So glad to have seen him again to listen to his cool vibe that is uniquely is Boz Scagg.

5.0 star rating Carol hublar from Goshen ky


that smooth voice is still there. Can't think of anything better than Boz Scaggs last night under the stars at Iroquois Park. He was simply fabulous and the band was tpp notch. He did all his greats and the surprising bonus was his new songs. They were super ate at Union 15 and walked over to the concert. Good food smooth jazz and fabulous weather made for a perfect evening

5.0 star rating Tracey Seiger from Kansas City, Missouri


One of my favorite musicians. Love all of his music. So glad I got a chance to see him live.

5.0 star rating Terry wayne from Cedar Rapids, Iowa


Pleasant night with great entertainment, and musicianship. Boz has lost nothing with regards to his singing, and has surrounded himself with talented, capable musicians. A wide variety of styles, and all of them played skillfully/passionately. Openers Robert Cray, and Jeff LeBlanc paved the way for a fabulous night of music. Money well spent!

5.0 star rating Lisa from Bethany Beach, Delaware


The only thing that I wish was he would have done my favorite song Miss Sun! Besides that he sounded great and his band was fabulous. I can’t wait for him to come back to Delaware. I enjoyed going to the lyric theater, but I rather see him at the Freeman stage again in Selbyville, Delaware! Thanks Boz you sounded great!!!

5.0 star rating Dianna Franklin from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Boz and band were right on and couldn't have been better. He played for 2 hrs then came back on for a 2 song oncore. I had seen him many years ago in the 70s and the only difference was he was in motion more back then but we are talking 50 years ago! For 78 years old and standing up there the whole time not bad. If you get a chance to see him go and he won't disappoint.

5.0 star rating LVR from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Amazing show here in Pittsburgh at the beautiful Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland! He sounded fantastic! The band was incredible and the show was performed with great class. Loved it!

5.0 star rating from Nashville, Tennessee


Loved, loved, loved the show!!! I hope Boz knows how much the audience was digging his music. He was in great form. The band was terrific, and the Ryman Auditorium was fantastic.

4.0 star rating Karen from Northern NJ


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 Maybe too mellow for some of the younger crowd, but we really enjoyed the show. :)

4.0 star rating Dennis from Minneapolis, Minnesota


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.

3.0 star rating 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.

Sorry to say, the old guy put the place to sleep.
