    Love it! Summer only, dance or just listen to free live music nearly every night: local, tribute & oldies bands of various genres including rock from old school to classic to current, Latin & country.

    Seated outdoor venue-- very unique experience. Listen to good music (eg for concerts), while enjoying hopefully good weather, gazing at stars, and looking out into the water. Would come back!

    Great outdoor venue w/ good views & sound. The lot has always been relaxed & offers beach access. Get there early to secure the closer one for cheaper than VIP.Vending is usually decent.

    When you sit close to the sky, you get to take in the view of the coastline, but not the performers. Just sneak to slightly better seats midway through the show.

    Having VIP access is great, its the only place to buy alcohol but come prepared to spend $12 for Beer's on tap and glasses of Wine... no hard liquor here! Also, $6 for a bottle of water or a soda.

    Beautiful venue but the beer situation sucks. We had to pay $30 extra to get into VIP in order to buy $12 beers. I have been to a lot of shows and never experienced anything like this.

    If you have orchestra seats, don't wear any shoes you would hate to be ruined! High tide can cause flooding (happened at Maroon 5 Wednesday). Had to stand in ankle deep water until the end of the show

    Colorful concert lighting can be tricky to capture, but very rewarding. Anticipate the shots to know when a performer’s face will be lit, and shoot for great colorful effects.

    Bump up the ISO - try setting the ISO on your camera in the 400-800 range to get better low-light shots, especially if your camera has a CMOS sensor like the new Nikon COOLPIX cameras.

    If there isn’t a lot of stage light, set the camera for monochrome instead of color, your photos will have a “classic” photography feel without the distraction of color.

    This venue needs to serve alcohol. They would make more than enough in sales to cover the drunk driving lawsuits that would ensue. Not serving booze is bad business.
