Despite the crowds barely queues at the door, friendly reception and ample lockers. The Max room is an excellent concert venue with elevations around so you can watch the audience. You are very close to the podium. Good sound, not too loud. Parking nearby is pricey, but the Milky Way can't do anything about it.
This venue is an excellent place for the hosting of music events. I visited for a reggae Easter special event. The sound engineer(s) know their trade well and the quality of the sound setup is the best I've ever experienced. Clear sounding instruments, voice mics offering near to listening perfection. This made my whole experience a very pleasant one listening to artists who I had never heard content from before. And I was also impressed by the fact that between a number of band changes the quality of sound did not deteriorate throughout the evening. Because the venue isn't massive it can be filled relatively easily by people but that's not to say that the place is tight and uncomfortable - not so. Access to bar is good, glass collecting staff are on their game too. Door entry was very relaxed and passed through very smoothly. As is typically the case with music venues like this they seem to thrill in having dark interior (black walls), walking hand in hand with toilets that are not managed or attended to keenly during the event. In the mens loos there was one overflowing urinal. The ladies was described as disgusting! Those are my only complaints
I've just gone to a Beast in Black concert, it was awesome! The band was amazing, the crowd was amazing as well. The only downside was the sound, with power metal it is very important to hear the singer the loudest. But this wasn't really the case, the instruments overpowered the singer quite a bit.. But besides that our night was amazing!! Love the atmosphere that was there that evening thanks to the small crowd as well!
