Great venue, we’ve been there many times. Recently we sat on the first row of the floor. Be aware that the stage is 5 feet above floor level! You can not see the back part of the stage.

One of the best of Kansas I've seen and heard. The acoustics are great for the older building. I think Kansas sounded more pure than any other time I've seen them. Staff very friendly at the Municipal.
