LOVED RAY - HATED THE AUDIENCE
WAY, WAY too much chatter and noise for a performer like Ray Lamontagne. Too often I found myself looking around and wondering why two-thirds of the people were even there. Most seemed more interested in their phones. No respect.

RAY LAMONTAGNE AT THE GREEK
What a beautiful concert! Yes, maybe the old classic hits weren't played, but his new stuff was amazing and the whole set felt like a one complete story. Plus, his band was superb. We didn't want it to end!

One of the best live shows that I have ever been to.

LOVE RAY’S MUSIC
I really liked the venue at State Theater for the performance. It was perfect with just Ray and his awesome back up singer. Unfortunately some of the audience didn’t get the difference and acted like it was in a huge auditorium - rude talking, in and out of seats, yelling for him to play Jolene after he said several times that he would, ugh! enjoyed the mix of old and new music, as well as mixing in some harmonica. Ray interacted very little with the audience and when he did it was a dry witty humor that we couldn’t hear well. Disappointing, sound crew should’ve fixed that. I wasn’t a fan of the opening act but my young adult granddaughter liked her. I didn’t think he needed an opening act in that venue. We didn’t buy seats right away so ended up about 20 rows back and way to the side but sound was still okay although he pointed himself slightly to the other side of stage and never really moved much. Overall, I enjoyed Ray’s soulful music and lay back style!

Ray is amazing. Dude is a wonderful talent. Would have been 5 stars if the opening act was decent, but she set a poor tone to start the evening.

TO ENJOY RAY NEED TO COME RIGHT EXPECTATIONS-PEABODYSTL
Artists come with different personalities. We buy albums, songs, tickets based on the final work of art not who the person is. If u come wanting an entertainer, you’re not going to get it with Ray. U will enjoy the performance from the band, his voice, but not how he interacts with the crowd. I personally have not followed his latest work, & was disappointed not to hear his older classics like everyone else, however still enjoyed the performance. I can understand the crowds disappointment, people pay a decent amt of $ & want to hear songs they know. However, if u go just to see & enjoy the performance the band brings versus focusing on your “requirements” you’ll likely enjoy your evening more

Went to the show at the Fair Park Music Hall. Venue is top notch and the sound was some of the best I've ever heard. Ray's voice was identical to what his records sound like, which is a high compliment. So many artists are so digitally altered it's almost shocking to hear something so pure and unadulterated. There was only Ray and another musician on stage, which gave the night a very sparse, ethereal air. It was unexpected but very enjoyable. My only minor quibble was that I would have liked to have seen some songs with a full band. Other than that, for my first time seeing him, I was impressed and look forward to seeing him again. Great show!
