I love this building and they always have great bands, however the acoustics are horrible. You can hear all the chatter of people talking while the band is playing. If it's a band I want to see I will still go, but try to stick...More

Turner Hall is one of the most unique places the city has to offer. It is a great and affordable place to see a concert or host a private event (weddings, fundraisers, etc.). The building was built in 1889 and has TONS of character!
