Surpassed my expectations! Excellent venue; performance was top notch. This exposed us to a performer who we would ordinarily not see. Very appreciative of this wonderful resource in our community

Mad props to Chris and the Opening Nights crew! I don’t know how they do it, but the show list is amazing every year.

What’s not to like about ON? Great venues tailored to each performer. Ruby Dion is a jewel in Tallahassee with a top notch crew. Pair that with all the shows Chris books you can’t go wrong attending ON shows!

Opening Nights is one of the very best annual events Tallahassee has to offer. The festival line-up is diverse, and always outstanding!
