We appreciate all of the feedback that our audience and performers have for the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand. Here are some comments that some of you have said about the performances:

“Just wanted to let the people that handle the bandstand concerts every year that you are doing a great job. I look forward to each concert & have for the past 5 yrs. Great job, you bring much enjoyment to the residents & visitors of Rehoboth.”

“This message is long, long overdue. We just wanted to say Thank You and commend you on the concert series. We’ve been attending often since retiring here 3 years ago. The best bands; best atmosphere; best audiences. 2014 was especially terrific having had the opportunity to hear the great Glenn Miller band. We’ve never been disappointed with the entertainment. Top notch. Thank you, thank you!”

“The concerts are so great – what a great job you all are doing!!”

“It was a wonderful year! Thank you for the awesome and fun summer entertainment. I will miss you and summer very much until next year!”

“Here’s proof that the bandstand brings in big money into the city, keep up the great work!”

“Who ever was the band who played last night – Sunday? OMG – They had us dancing in the streets. Were awesome. Thanks!”

“We liked last Saturday night’s show – those funky groove guys were great!”

“Thanks for the wonderful entertainment you’re providing. We drove from Dover Fri, Sat, and Sun to specifically hear the music. And of course for dinner and snacks and to be near the beach. Our favorite band was Friday night oldies. Their outfits were neat, too. Of course the oldies are the best. Thanks again and keep up the fantastic work you’re doing for us.”

“I just wanted take a moment to sincerely thank you for the opportunity to play your Summer Concert Series, it truly was a pleasure. A beautiful night, a great crowd, a comfortable dressing room on a hot day, an excellent sound man, and an accessible stage all made for a perfect evening. I have to commend you on how easy you make it to load-in and load-out and park for the show, rarely do venues give such consideration to artists, and I wanted you to know it was appreciated. You have a smoothly-run operation from top to bottom and I commend you for making it all so easy.”

“Great communication, great crowd, great gig. The bandstand is right on the beach. Great scenery. Would recommend submitting.”

“Loved everything about this gig. Great venue, great crowd, beautiful location, so incredibly easily accessible for load-in and load out. Sold a ton of CDs. The sound guy was great to work with, and I definitely expanded my fan base in that area. Great dressing room with air-conditioning on a very hot day. I give this gig a 10 out of 10 without a doubt. I’d love to come back a play here again. Absolutely.”

“I just wanted to send you a much appreciated Thank You on behalf of myself and the other members of Tres Compadres for giving us the opportunity to perform at this years concert series @ Rehoboth Bandstand. Everyone had a great time! You guys run a top notch operation down there, it was a real pleasure, continue the good work. We’d be honored if you keep us in mind for any future events. Have a good rest of the summer!”

“Cello Fury rocks. Awesome. Nothing beats FREE entertainment except when its free and EXCELLENT!”

“PHENOMENAL! Possibly the best show we’ve ever seen at the bandstand & we’ve seen many great ones. FANTASTIC!”

“Thank you so much for all your help with our Easter Sun Rise Service. … Your sound man was incredibly helpful, had already started the process when I got there at 6am!! It was as though he was reading my mind!!! Every time I said, “we need…” he either had it in his hands or was just going to get it. When I thanked him for all his efforts his response was, “I’m just doing my job.” He was great!!!! Compliments to you and your staff for an excellent job, well done!! I think the City of Rehoboth Beach made a wonderful impression on the large crowd of visitors that we had gathered to celebrate with us.”

“We also thought that this year’s ceremony was the best yet — multiple acts and more energy, fun and laughter on stage than ever before.”

“The sound for an outdoor concert at the bandstand is amazing.”

“With Corey Groll working to bring a diverse program of entertainment to town, the crowds keep growing. The combination of local, military and well-known bands has set a new bar for quality entertainment at the bandstand.”

“Great event and great staff/crew to work with. Professionally run and professional treatment from top to bottom. Beautiful area with great, built-in crowds. Highly recommend attempting to get into this event.”

We certainly hope that Rehoboth Beach lasts forever so it can be enjoyed for generations, we love it!
Rehoboth Beach, Room For All!”

“You continue to do a wonderful job in these difficult times. You somehow manage to keep the town fresh and new but at the same there is a feeling of real old fashion home town wonder. We were there for the tree lighting ceremony and the horse and buggy rides (what a nice idea) for the Holidays. Thank you for all your efforts and for keeping the magic in the Holiday season. Our family was there visiting and they could not believe how festive and welcoming it was.  We look forward to all the local activities and continue to brag to our friends of the wonderful place we live.
Thanks again and keep up the good work.”

“Lots of great things at the bandstand and we don’t want to miss any.”

“Just had to send you a note regarding the band who played in the Bandstand Saturday night. They were AWESOME! They had the whole crowd up and jumping, they invited anyone to come on stage and dance, including the kids. My family was visiting us from North Jersey for the weekend and they were impressed with our town and what it brings to summer. It made our evening so much fun. They are very entertaining and the energetic. We really did enjoy them and thanks for continuing to provide the best bands possible.”

“You did a masterful job of programming a wide variety of musical events! I enjoyed every one that I attended! An evening at the band shell during the summer is one of the highlights of my year. Thanks for all that you do to provide this wonderful opportunity to the Rehoboth Beach community!”

“My husband and I attended the Army Band and Chorus on this past Saturday night. What a wonderful performance! Thank you! We will also be in the area for the Diamonds. We can’t wait. Thanks again for all you do.”

“Great program, something for everyone!”

“I have to tell you that it meant so much to SO many of our friends and family who traveled far and wide to see us! Many of these people had never heard the band and really had a great time. We also had some local musician friends who came out to see us. They said that the sound was excellent out front. Kudos to you!”

“I hope we have an opportunity to perform next year. Enjoy the rest of your summer!”

“Thanks for the great selection of events this season, as always! It takes a lot to coordinate and schedule all this, and we sure appreciate all the hard work that goes into it. And also, I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating since it is on the same subject – the web site and calendar are fantastic.”

“One of my favorite parts of living in Rehoboth is the shows at the Bandstand!! We might as well cancel our cable now, expect to attend a lot of shows this year!!”

“Thanks for all your hard working making this a successful bandstand season.”

“Thank you for all the good shows … I’ve seen many. I’m looking forward to next year.”

“THANKS for a GREAT summer concert series!”

“I keep hearing from a lot of people (and I’ve experienced it myself) how great the bandstand shows are and how large the crowds are that the shows are drawing. My grandmother, who is in her 80s, has raved about each show she’s been to. She hasn’t been to as many shows in recent years as she has just this summer! She thinks the new bandstand is wonderful and that “the young man” emceeing is very good.”

“I recently came back from spending 6 days and nights at Rehoboth. I was delighted to sit on the white benches, eating caramel corn, and watching a film for “every age,” with two important messages. After the show was finished, I went around thanking everyone who I thought might be connected with putting on this film. Thank you for this opportunity. I hope to come back again to Rehoboth.”

“It’s obvious that you guys put a lot of time and effort into making the bandstand entertainment fun and enjoyable for all ages. We appreciate the lively activity available. It certainly is a draw in having tourists come to support the local stores and restaurants.”

“We LOVE your band shell! When I first saw it, I wasn’t sure how it would work for sound. However, it was fantastic! My wife and some friends in the audience also said the sound was really good, that we were easy to hear. Not a mean feat, considering the strong wind coming in off the ocean.”

“So, from a member of the band, thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ve been a member of the band for nearly 24 years, and I don’t know if I can remember a concert I enjoyed more.”

“It has been a real treat and have enjoyed every minute of it ..thank you so much for giving the public something to look forward to without cost. Everything costs so much now a days it’s hard to enjoy life. Again, thank you.”

“I think you are doing a great job. We live here and this has been our first year of almost regular attendance.”
