Step onto the hardwood floors, surrounded by ocean-front murals and booths reminiscent of milk shakes and rock-and-roll. Look up into the clouds floating on the ceiling and realize that the sky is still the limit. You're indeed standing on the stage of American music . . .

Booth Upgrades

A "Booth Upgrade" is a reservation for a 4 or 6 person booth. Each "Booth Upgrade" purchased represents the entire 4 or 6 person booth. For example: If you've purchased 1 - 4 tickets to an event and want to sit in a booth, then purchase one (4 person booth) "Booth Upgrade" to that particular event. If there are 5 - 6 people, purchase one (6 person booth) "Booth Upgrade" for that event. Purchasing a "Booth Upgrade" WILL NOT grant you admission to the event. These are General Admission events and you must purchase a ticket for that event for admittance.

Please note that booths were designed and built in 1948 as a place to rest between dances, thus a view of the stage during modern concerts is not guaranteed. Due to their historic nature and for the safety and enjoyment of others, guests are asked to not stand on benches or tables to view the show.
