The Orange Peel Reviews
We went to see Jimmy Eat World at the Orange Peel. Fast check-in with a pat down involved (good for safety). Staff was nice and personable. Acoustics are great! more »
Very similar to small venue places in my hometown, presenting an opportunity to see varied artists as they pass through town. Arrive early and use the parking garage to avoid parking tickets. more »
The Orange Peel is always a pleasant place for a show. I've seen around twenty shows here over the years and the sound is always perfect, the acoustics are wonderful, and the atmosphere is mellow. The bar is fully stocked - although I never indulge. The bathroom is spotless, which is rare for a concert venue. Security is tight, which is great in this day and age. I'm grateful that they heavily pat me down upon entrance. The event staff are always respectful. Overall, a great venue!
This place is awesome! We saw Jungle live and it was absolutely packed but ran so smoothly. The smoking balcony is perfect so you don't have to leave and come back. The guy with the amazing beard is a real hero! He shielded me from the crowd when we were going to go meet the band. Thanks man!
