    Great views and always a fun place to see shows. The beer and drinks garden out back is open now and they take credit cards. Win!

    One of the coolest concert venues I've been too! It's right on the water, the sunsets are amazing, but bring a jacket, it can get chilly!

    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!
  • Gabriel Q.
    Amazing venue. If you're here for an evening concert, make sure you arrive early to check out the great sunset views.

    This outdoor amphitheater is one of the few that is fully seated. The views are great at this oceanfront theatre where the boats line up in the bay.

    This Long Island theater is where classic-rock buffs from the ’burbs meet their NYC counterparts. Whoever's playing, expect a populist, ballpark-style concert experience. Read more

    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.
  • Boston K.
    Wow what a venue. Though the front row seats were flooded the patrons had a great time. Seeing Joan Jett and Boston perform was amazing in the well designed venue

    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.

    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.

    If the weather's nice, This is one of the best outdoor venues. If you drive though, tailgaters will wind up blocking several parking spots.

    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.

    Beautiful and unique venue. The best seats are actually higher up, especially while it's light out.

    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.

    This was a great stop on the Get $leazy Tour! It is on the water and you can see crabs swimming around! Also, the venue crew are hot!!

    Place is pretty good. Food & drinks r obviously not cheap... drink before u walk in. Parking for me was free. The premixed drinks suck. Ground level next to the stage had water from high tide
  • Nikon USA M.
    Nikon USA ManagerSeptember 26, 2011
    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.
  • Nikon USA M.
    Nikon USA ManagerSeptember 26, 2011
    Take control of your photos - a Camera like the Nikon P300 lets you shoot great photos in low light with a fast f/1.8 lens and the ability to manually adjust shutter speed.

    If you're taking pictures at sunset or in low light, try turning the dial on your COOLPIX to Night Portrait mode. The setting allows you to take pictures with well balanced light while preserving the

    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.

    Kelly MelissaJuly 27, 2013
    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.

    Get Close - even if you’re not in the front row, you can still get great shots. Nikon’s COOLPIX S9100 has a long zoom lens that lets you get up to 18x closer.
  • Tilman B.
    Saw Rammstein 2017 - Hillarious ridiculous over the top entertainment! The location is great, but not for a rock concert. The arrangement of the seats in front of the stage suck somehow.

    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
