1.0 out of 5 stars  Stupid Canadian Hockey bar. ten million TVs blaring all the time and drunks watching hockey. Band has to wait until everyone is done watching f***in' hockey to play, regardless of…

Sep 25   New review for Tomi Jazz.
3.0 out of 5 stars  It took months of emails to get a booking. The correspondence leading up to their decision was very pleasant. They said they require that all bandleaders fill out a W-2,…

4.0 out of 5 stars  This review is for the Singer/songwriter nights. I don't have any experience with any other event at The Brickhouse. This is a great event for singer/songwriters to play. The guy…

Aug 28   New review for Fuel.
2.0 out of 5 stars  Would have given three stars but docked it for the insipid opening act policy. We drew a sizable crowd that had to sit through an unbearable, seemingly hours long, solo…

Aug 28   New review for One Eyed Jack's Roadhouse.
3.0 out of 5 stars  Reluctantly giving this place three stars. Has OK stage. Lower quality (old Behringer mixer, no-name speakers)PA system. The owner is the "soundman". He tries hard but doesn't really have the…
