“We had John Williams, arguably the number one classical guitarist on the planet, in here performing with guitarist John Etheridge,” Montijo continues. “They liked the sound so much that they kept taking turns running out into the house to listen while the other one played. Leo Kottke was also in here on another night and walked out into the audience while he was playing. He actually stopped in the middle of his set and said, ‘Damn, this room sounds good! I want to play this song again!’

“This system is such a pleasure to use,” he adds. “It doesn’t cease to amaze me how incredible it sounds. The coverage is extremely even throughout the entire room and there’s absolutely no ‘noise’. If people walk out of here without having their best audio experience ever, then I did something wrong because it’s not the fault of this system. It’s absolutely perfect!”

In addition to working with City Arts & Lectures, Herbst Theatre also hosts numerous events for SFJAZZ (presenter of the San Francisco Jazz Festival), San Francisco Performances (recitals, jazz, dance and chamber music) and Another Planet (indie, rock, pop, hip-hop, etc.), among others.
