Others have said it but I will repeat: Chris Botti is a true gentleman and exhibits class and talent very rarely seen on stage today. He puts together brilliant musicians - all so talented it's mind-blowing! This is the second time I've seen him and he keeps getting better. Loved when he got into the audience at Roy Thomson Hall and played from the aisle. This man is incredible... what a treat!

5.0 star rating J Murphy from Syracuse, New York

5.0 star rating Ralph Guppy from Winnipeg, Manitoba


Great concert last night marked by respect for his fellow musicians and the audience. He always has the best musicians accompany him and shares the limelight with them. He actually had the lighting technician remove some glaring spots on the front row spectators before continuing the performance. I saw him previously at Red Rocks amphitheater a few years back and that was another great concert by Chris! What a talented gentleman!!!!!

5.0 star rating Maggie from Big bear Lake Ca


Chris Botti does not disappoint his audience! This is the sixth time we have seen him perform and will not be our last! All your stress rolls away and you’re transported for a couple of hours by his beautiful trumpet playing , his world class band and guest singers and performers ! Love the Cerritos Center , we stayed across the Courtyard at the Sheraton Hotel a very short way away. Wonderful night!

5.0 star rating Jules Junion from Phoenix,


Chris Bodie does not disappoint! Great musician well as a very gracious man. Is show is so full of great artists obviously enjoy very much we do it it shows in their performance. The Fox theater is an amazing venue. A classic vintage theater in a rejuvenated downtown area in Tucson Arizona. We will be back to see Chris Botti and other future events at this amazing theater Chris Botti thank you for such an amazing and memorable night of music and entertainment!

Absolutely a must see. Such an amazing musician and trumpetier. Seen him twice now and loved every moment.

5.0 star rating Deborah LoPiccolo from Charlotte, North Carolina


Chris is an amazing performer and surrounds himself with world-class musicians. The show highlights everyone's unique gifts while collaborating in mezmerizing harmony. Chris brings it home each and every time we see him. 3 times a charm for us and the show is better than the last. A winning performance! Bravo.

5.0 star rating Lynda Reich from West Palm Beach, Florida


This is the fifth time i've been able to enjoy Chris Botti and his amazing musical performers! His desire to bring incredible musical artists and showcase them as part of his show is just perfect! He can consistently play all types of music, from opera to pop, but shines in his jazz renditions! He learned a lot about performing with many fabulous talents and it certainly shows. I just wish he had time to record another album/'s time! There were many different ages in the audience and I believe there was music for everyone.

5.0 star rating Robert Sinitiere from Baton Rouge, Louisiana


Chris Botti and his band and guest soloists with the BRSO did not disappoint. He NEVER disappoints. Have been to many of his concerts, and he is always notonly the consummate professional, but also an audience engaging showman. I believe that Chris Botti is the World’s greatest Trumpet-Master, and this excludes living and past trumpeters. He. Can do things and “sound things” with that 85 year old trumpet that NO other musician on Trumpet can. He mesmerizes the audience with his style of “progressive fusion jazz like no other. Chris, if you read this, COME BACK SOON TO BATON ROUGE. You are our all time favorite. For this concert, weconvinced the entire Sinitiere clan to attend. No one left without feeling they had been uplifted into a new, smooth, tight and very, very cool style of music that only Chris Botti can pull-off. Thank you, thank you, thank you for another delightful night of EXTREME musicality.

5.0 star rating Sandy Keen from Fort Myers, Florida


My husband and I saw Chris Botti for the first time about 10 years ago at the performing arts center in Orange County, CA. We thought he was amazing then, but last night's show was beyond our expectations. He has evolved and the talent that joined him last night was simply amazing! Can't wait to see him again.

5.0 star rating Pamela from Naples, FL


We all enjoyed the evening so much, but who were the musicians and guests with Chris Botti? Can’t find the info anywhere!

5.0 star rating Toni Cain from Fort Myers, Florida


Chris Botti performance @ Barbara B Mann Theater in Ft Myers, Florida. March 17 2019 Absolutely brilliant!! He is such a class act! We took our daughter in law, and her friend, and they loved every single performance! The musicians are top notch perfectly talented artists!!! It was a magical night! My 7 th time to see him perform since 2006... Love this music

5.0 star rating Kathy from Worcester, Massachusetts


Chris Botti was everything and so much more. He is elegant, gracious and beyond talented. The band he curated, all amazing talents, was having so much fun on stage you felt like you were in chris’ living room. Their obvious love of what they do makes it that much more enjoyable—fills your heart!

5.0 star rating Myra Leckey from San Diego, CA


My husband and I have seen Chris Botti perform several times at the Blue Note in Manhattan, other venues in Manhattan and Pennsylvania. His performance does not disappoint, always a wonderful show, and I would love to see him again this summer in MA.

5.0 star rating from Greenville, South Carolina


We had a wonderful night at the Chris Botti concert . So much talent, and great song selections.

5.0 star rating Carroll Morgan from Charlottesville, VA


Wonderful concert as always (our 4th). He is so gracious with the talent he brings in. What was the tenors name? Awesome! Unfortunately, the sound level was so loud at the Birchmere, that my wife and I decided to only see him in larger halls. Our ears hurt, and whose idea was it to shine bright white spot lights directly at the audience who has been sitting in the dark? Not cool.

5.0 star rating Tom Steele from Ayr, Scotland


This concert was a long time coming for all and Chris had an outstanding cast to support him. I am so glad, so grateful to have been able to hear them in the Wilbur Boston.

5.0 star rating Virginia Rhoton from Durham, North Carolina


Everytime I see him it is amazing!!! We sat in the very last row in the balcony and could see and everything!!! I love listening to him but like others wanted to know the women singers names!!! They helped make that show!!!!

5.0 star rating Bob SINITIERE from Baton Rouge, Louisiana


Once again, visiting Baton Rouge back in 2018, Chris Botti and band plus guest solo artists, proved to me that Chris is THE finest Trumpet Master in the World, living or dead. He transforms his 80+ year old Trumpet into a “visceral, living”music machine and instrument that is truly alive, and this is evident to anyone who hears this great trumpet player perform will no doubt be recognized as “simply the BEST”! If he were to perform in Baton Rouge on a nightly basis, my wife, Vina and I would be there to be mesmerized and grandly entertained. The National Football League would be wise to choos CHRIS BOTTI and band to perform to the masses at upcoming Super Bowls. I once listened as he played the National Anthem and America the Beautiful at Championship game, and I actually witnessed several 350 pound elite players “come to tears.

5.0 star rating Rosemary Aldi from Naples, Florida


An absolutely tremendous concert!!! We weren’t quite sure what to expect just knowing that an absolutely talented trumpet player was performing. He was that & so much more!!! Gracious to the audience & performing a special number in the audience for a friend’s father!! The special performers as well as his own back up band were a group of outstanding artists that you don’t often get to enjoy when a soloist is performing. Botti’s unselfishness is to be commended & applauded bringing these talented musicians to share his stage!!!! I am looking forward to seeing him again & his entire entourage!!!!

5.0 star rating Sandy from Gainesville, Florida


I'm sure lots have said it, but Chris Botti is such a class act. He is so incredibly talented himself, yet brings together such incredible talent and highlights them, without ever taking the stage for himself. Sandy Cameron was stunning. Her movements and stage presence, as well as her incredible violinist skills were amazing. The young gentleman pianist was great as well. He looked like he was having so much fun. The young woman with the bluesy voice at the end was awesome. I should name them all, but all were incredible. This was my first time seeing Chris live, and I was overwhelmed. Again, I love that he takes the stage, and offers so many younger musicians a chance to shine. What incredible character. I am not through seeing him. Looking for additional tour sites as we speak. And the bonus? Just moved to Gainesville, and my drive home was 10 minutes. Please come back Chris. I feel like I hit the bigtime seeing you here. Incredible show. Thanks for doing small venues in smaller towns. Much appreciated.

5.0 star rating Marie Brochstein from Houston, Texas


The Houston Concert was a welcome surprise. I have followed Chris's career for about 10 years. Always a good show but the Houston concert was completely new. Young, exceptional talent! All band members were wonderful.

5.0 star rating Georgia wise from Austin, Texas


Chris Biotti a gift his band and guests were superb. Two hours of cheer joy to my ears. Acoustics wow wow especially Veronica Swift Voice. My Best birthday ever.

5.0 star rating Kerry Corley from Alexandria, Va - the Birchmere


My husband and I saw Mr Botti at the Birchmere about two years ago. He and his band plus his guests were over the top! He lets everyone shine. I made another reservation for the next time but I got Covid. Wow, was i bummed. My husband went with his friend and told me it was as good as the first time. We are seeing him again soon in December at the Birchmere.. I am really looking forward to it. Quick note to people that have never seen his show. Believe me, there is something for everyone.

5.0 star rating Nelly from Washington, District of Columbia


This concert exceeded our expectations. I still can't get over how much we enjoyed all the world class artists and in such a comfortable intimate setting.

5.0 star rating Kerry Corley from Washington, District of Columbia


I loved Chris Botti’s show at the Birchmere last night. He is so talented and has such a great group of entertainers that he lets shine. This is my third time seeing him perform and I always enjoy his show. It is a must see. P.S. He is easy on the eyes too.

4.0 star rating from New York, New York


Honestly my wife and I are not big jazz fans. For reasons, we couldn't make next weeks show with George Clinton and Parliament. But Chris Botti and his fellow musicians had us captivated. It was a beautiful evening. No regrets at all.

3.0 star rating Sandra C. from West Palm Beach, Florida


Chris Botti and his band are very talented BUT the concert was unbearable because the sound, especially of his trumpet, was excruciatingly loud and hurtful to the eardrums. On top of this, a huge white light was turned onto the audience in the mezzanine! One couldn’t even look at the stage. This ruined the concert for us.

3.0 star rating Joe R. from Los Angeles, California


Wife and I went to his concert at the Wiltern. I bought the tickets a while ago so I was very much looking forward to it. I play the horn too and I've always loved his music. That said, it was kind of like a "Chris Botti and Friends" concert. He had 5 "special guests", all of whom were very talented but none of which I had ever heard of. I have no idea what the percentage of time was dedicated to him playing his horn as opposed to all the other folks performing, but it seemed about 50/50. In short, I bought tickets to see Chris Botti and not the other folks. I get the special guest thing but I would have preferred to hear more of the person I paid to see. I won't go to another of his concerts as a result and I'll just play him on my system.

2.0 star rating Larry from Chicago, Illinois


We attended Chris Botti's concert at the Chicago Theater on June 10. Chris Botti is a world-class trumpet musician. He was accompanied by equally phenomenal musicians and vocalists. He played various types of music during the concert ranging from jazz, pop, and classical. The musicality of the performers is amazing. While I was looking forward to this concert for many months, I did not enjoy it. Why? The sound technician at the Chicago Theater did a horrible job. The sound was not adjusted or balanced properly. This audio engineer did the worse job of sound equalization that I have ever heard at any performance. I would attend another Botti concert with the same performers, but not if the same audio engineer was in charge.

1.0 star rating Mark DeYoung from Greensboro North Carolina


I attended Mr Botti’s performance last evening with my father in law. My expectations of a world renowned trumpeter with such accolades were sadly disappointed. Why in today’s world must performers drift so far away from the beauty of what once was the subject? The actual beauty of the music. It’s as if Mr. Botti is in a competition with himself, not realizing or recognizing the power and substance of jazz in its purest form. While surrounded by incredible musicians of such talent and structure, I found the concert incredibly tainted by the guest performances, desperately needing to have their moment in the sun, and ignoring the structure of a band’s performance. My father in law and I were dumbfounded as to why these incredible pieces of work from the creators of jazz had to be performed in such a manner. Filled with all of the shtick and commercial influenced productions one would experience on a 3 day budget cruise line. I was not expecting a Kenny G concert.
