DWIGHT YOAKAM

Dwight...your a wonderful performer and song writer. Have to say I saw you in Cranbrook BC, and last night at the Jube. I have to tell you your singing voice is incredible but ....when you switched out guitars all of a sudden the sound was not near as clear. It happened in Cranbrook as well don't know if its the speakers or the guitar your changed but your words were hard to understand and a lot of people I sat with thought the same. I am a huge fan of yours for years, thought you should know.

GREAT MUSICIANS, DISAPPOINTING SOUND

Great musicianship, awesome guitar licks and Dwight hit all the notes, however the front of house sound was awful - yes, in the best sounding room anywhere. Dwight’s vocals were feeding back up until the second to last song and his guitar sounded like nails scratching on a blackboard. Whoever produced the front of sound owes the band an apology and the audience a refund. What a waste of a potentially great evening.

GOOD

All in all a great show! Could do really without the electric guitar portion of his show. WAY TO LOUD causing many to leave his show early! Definitely not country in any way & really took away from the rest of his show for me! Without that 10/10 with 7/10!

EAGLES BALLROOM

Was so looking forward to this show...left disappointed. Firstly, the venue was terrible. With no A/C my phone recorded 110 degrees in stagnant conditions! Unacceptable! Floor fans didn't cut it! Usher took us to our seats, shortly uprooted by another usher to other seats.(There were plenty that were still open!) Opening act was 1 hour long...people were getting anxious. Then Dwight came out...still has got it! We were excited...that faded as he hardly did any of his well known songs i.e. Fast as You, Guitars & Cadillacs etc. Whoever was doing the sound mix stunk! Lead solos were blasting, voice was garbled...true turn off! We love Dwight, but the conditions made us leave before the encore! Never again!

SOUND BAD

To me one of the best voices of all time. The band was so loud you could t hear him. It was so disappointing because he and Strait have the voice talent. Hope he does an acoustic tour in the future. The sound engineer needs to find a new job

SO TERRIBLY DISAPPOINTED

The opening band was fine -- it's nice to see a new talent who can actually sing. When Dwight came on stage, we were ready for a great show. Alas, as long as he was playing the electric guitar, it was utterly impossible to hear Dwight's unique vocals. The balance was terrible. In fact, the instrumental volume was so loud, my husband compared it to a sonic weapon (usually used to disperse mobs or to even injure or kill an opponent!). We enjoyed the songs he performed with the acoustic guitar -- the balance levels were still off, but at least we could hear Dwight's voice. When he went back to electric, we had to get up and leave, which was a crying shame after spending that kind of $. One would think that a performer of that caliber would have a better sound team. I've attended Def Leppard, Journey, & Imagine Dragons concerts this year, so I'm not unusually sensitive to volume. Dwight's concert was like jamming a fork down my ear. (And we weren't the first to leave early!)

DWIGHT YOAKAM AT VANWEZEL, SARASOTA

The sound mixing for entire concert was disappointing for Dwight and opening act. Couldn’t wait for it to end. Shame on Dwight and VanWezel.
