Attention Wess fans! On stage for one show only, Wess Cooke, an AMT Original Show performer, stars in his own country music focused concert. Backed by members of the AMT Band, experience a night of heartfelt country tunes, as Wess performs both well-known country hits and several of his own original songs.
THE SHOW WAS FANTASTIC.HIS QUALITY STAND EQUAL TO ANY OTHER NATIONAL STAR....WE ARE FORTUNATE TO HAVE HIM AT THE AMT.
We didn't like the "comedian" (didn't think he was very funny) and thought he weakened what otherwise would have been an EXCELLENT show. We would hope that Wes would do another show next year, but he doesn't need anyone with him. Maybe if you want to have an opener, have a local group or singer who is good...
I'm really not much of a country music fan, but I think that's going to change. I was shocked at how much I enjoyed this concert. I'm also confused as to why this guy isn't more famous. He is an incredible song writer.
Wes is a great performer. His show was a great mix of music comedy and conversation.
Actually--we are hoping he will continue and have a show next year. Great down to earth relationship with the audience--(his friends). Of course he has a wonderful voice good selection of songs.
Quality of singing...variety of show......instrumental quality
Wess is a very good TALENT. WE have enjoted him in other shows.
FANTASTIC SHOW. Wess did a great job. Looking forward to another show in the near future. Bobby, Wessley & Dominic were also great.
He is one of country musics hidden talents that needs to be seen and enjoyed !!!
very upbeat, good varity
All aspects of show were great.
We like country music and seen a lot of country concerts . Wess is a great singer and better than some of the stars we have seen.Thanks for a great show!
Didn't like the comedian interrupting the show. He was good as an opening act but enough!
Thanks to AMT for giving Wes his own show! It was a great show and really look foward to seeing him do another in the future.
His singing and the band were awesome!
I think Wes is a great singer and the show was well worth the money.
I cook did a great job.
I'm a friend of Wess and not a real Country music fan. I appreciated Wess' transparency and sharing of himself and his family...but the second half of the set was too personal (all original love songs to his wife) ...would've liked more covers of familiar country/rock songs.
Good all around show and I'm not even a country music fan, my wife is and she's been a fan of Wess's for years.
We enjoy Wess in all the AMT productions; and it was also great to see him have his own show. his singing is great and the show was very touching.
Absolutely, thoroughly entertaining time at the theater. Cannot wait for his next show.
Good music with an all time favorite at AMT. Great show at an affordable price. Sure did give us our money's worth.
He has a good voice and talent.
I was an outstanding, professionally done show.
It was great. Can't wait for Wess's next one.
We thought the performance and talent were excellent. However, we would have like to see more cover music. Songs that we are familiar with. We hope Wess has the opportunity to put on other concerts in the near future. He is a great talent.
Wess put on an excellent show!
I thought the show was great.Wess has a great voice and comes on as a regular guy.The band,Wess and the show was great
I very much enjoy his singing. I would like to see more of him in his own show. I would all so like to see him in your other shows
Enjoyed the show, but second half got a little too long
Very enjoyable and professional performance. Everyone seemed to be having a good time.
The music and performances by Wess and the band and singers were terrific. I seen Wess in your shows over the past five years and thought he was a terrific performer. He proved it in this show. I have a few recommendations: have the backup singers do a few solos and less from the comedian.
good singing and entertainment
Wes did an incredible job. His concert was as good if not better then many current country stars with hits on the charts.
Enjoyed the first half much more than the second half. Not sure if it was because it was unknown material (songs he had written) or because he seemed processed by his wife! Not everyone wants to hear so much of it. Enjoyed his slower, softer songs.
The music was a wonderful mix of original and popular songs. The arrangements were up to AMT high standards. The touch of "up close and personal" with the memorial tribute for one son and duets with two others were very touching and FUN. It was a great afternoon!!
The singing was fabulous and the band was terrific
Wes is a fantastic singer and we were so glad when this performance was decided on. I could listen to him sing all day long and it was great when his son's were included. It made it for a real family night.
Wess Cooke put on a very good show. He is one of my favorite in your shows at the AMC
Wess put on a VERY GOOD show!
he is fantastic, puts on a wonderful show. should have done this yrs ago. he is such an asset to the theater.
Wess is entertaining and talented.
TOO, TOO LONG...FIRST HALF GREAT, SHOULD HAVE STOPPED THERE. WHO CARE ABOUT THE WIFE'S SONGS, SHOULD HAVE SUNG GOOD OLD COUNTRY SONGS, NOT ALL HIS
We have been a fan of Wess Cooke from the first time we saw him in Myrtle Beach. His own show was excellent. It was a truly professional performance. The AMT band (with added lead guitar and steel guitar), backup singers and lighting was more than we expected. Wess is very humble and honored his family members and supporting cast. We look forward to him doing another show. An added touch would be to do a duet or two with an AMT female singer.
It would have to be someone who really likes just country music. I was hoping that there would be more variety. I love when Wess Cooke does "story-telling" type songs. Also gospel and accapella. I would have liked some ballads and showtunes as well as country. He's so good at all of those types of music and I prefer those to country.
Overall, I think the show was quite entertaining. You can tell all the time and energy that was put forth to provide a first notch performance. I think there is still a lot of potential to build on this established groundwork in the future. Some suggestions would be to have more of a mix of popular songs from other musical categories in addition to country. Wess has performed in so many in house productions over the years. I miss hearing some of his exceptional tributes to other artists that only he can pull off. A stronger vocal backup is warranted. You saw their mouths moving but little sound produced or heard. Don't know if this was an oversight on the technical end. Lastly, a little more duet. The performance with his son was fantastic. Perhaps including one of the backup singers or talented musicians with vocal experience would suffice.
~Nice, fast paced family style show.
Wess is a great singer. He really connects with the audience. I definitely would see him next year.
I have always enjoyed Wess Cooke in the ATM Shows but was totally blown away by his wit, his easy personality with the band members who all were happy to be part of the first Wes Cooke headliner show at ATM, and his extraordinary vocal and writing talents. It was a total joy to be part of the audience listening to the music, hearing the stories of his life, hearing his son sing (very talented himself), wanting it to never end. The audience sent him love and he repaid us with an extraordinary performance for over 3 and a half hours that went by in a flash.
Wesss Cooke is a great performer enjoy him in everything he does, also you put on great shows
this was a great great show, Wess should put on more shows. He has a loyal following!
wess knows how to connect with a audience. great voice and talent. loved the comedian.
Wess is far more than just a singer and performer
We really enjoyed Wess' singing, but there was a little too much of Bobby. This made the show a bit too long for our liking.
I'm not a big country music fan and this was the first time I've seen Wess Cooke perform and I was pleased and surprised at how much I enjoyed the concert. I spent nine years living in Nashville and was exposed to lots of country music but always preferred classical and jazz more but I would pay to see Wess Cooke perform again.
Wess is a great singer & does a lot of variety singing really enjoy him
Wess is very versatile w3ith his music a good mix
I have been following Wes's career si8nce he was the headliner for the Music Theatre in Williamswburg, VA He his a great performer!
We enjoyed the songs he sung, liked hearing about his family and having his sons sing with him. Just a great show!!!!
It was a wonderful show. Wess Cooke is amazing.
A great show! Funny, talent, and all around great!
Wess has such incredible talent. Whether he is performing his own songs or performing a wide range of songs by other artists, he amazes. And what a gentleman. I cannot understand how it took so long for him to have his "own show" at AMT. I think he could easily do a show every 6 months. And how about a recurring variety type show hosted by Wess, to showcase local talent?
recommend to country music lovers
Although Wess did a great job I would have perferred hearing more standard songs instead of so many of his own writtings which were good. But after hearing him at the Christmas show and hearing the few selections he did of other artists music (especially The Dance) at this show I was a little dissapointed.
I have always enjoyed Wess at the AMT Shows, I think he is great. I loved the show and was very glad I saw it and look forward to seeing him again next year. The only thing I did not like was him talking about Billie Jean, nothing against her, but he just kept talking about her. Maybe it was his first solo show since he was married and I am happy for him, but no need to talk about her so much.
Wess is a great entertainer, has a great voice, guitar skills, and a pleasant personality that really comes through in this show.
we always enjoyed wes and were elated when we heard he was having his own show. Want another show next year.
very good local talent
Wess did a fabulous job. Iwould come to see him again and bring friends.
Loved hearing Wess sing! He has the perfect voice for Gordon Lightfoot's songs so I would have liked to hear a few more of those songs. It was an enjoyable experience! Hope he returns next year!!!!!
One of the best country shows we have seen at the theatre ( and we see many of them). You could understand the words Wes was singing and the sound of him and his band was about right in all respects.
The show was great except that I had hoped he would do some other types of music than country as he does in the house shows, and also more familiar songs. We also noticed that when his son sang we could understand all the lyrics but when Wes sang it was somewhat muffled.
We have been following Wess and enjoying his performances since he started at AMT!
Wes is a great performer and musician!!
This was one of the best shows, if not the best, that I have ever seen at AMT. Thank You!
Wess is a great singer/performer. However, I did not score a 10 because the show was mostly country.
outstanding performance, great music, ands it stars Wess Cooke, full parking lot
Overall great musicians in the show.
Wess always does a good show....
Wess Cooke's performance was superb. He is a humble performer who recognized his family, friends and fellow performers. The AMT band, backup singers, lighting and etc. was the usual first class act of AMT. We would love to see Wess do a show next year.
that this page is not loaded with reviews about Wess Cooke's March 9 show! We always enjoy Wess at the AMT home shows and was so happy when he was given a chance for his own. He did not disappoint! He is surely loaded with God given talent. We enjoy country music and it fits Wess well; however, nothing could have been more wonderful, nor shown his range of ability, than hearing him sing Les Miserables Bring Him Home at a recent AMT show.
We very much enjoyed the entire show and found Wess to be an open and confident host with a great group of talented band members. Looking forward to his next show.
We also enjoy Wess in the Christmas show.
This afternoons show at the AMT was the best! Wess Cooke gave an outstanding performance. Wess and the AMT Band put on a performance worth a 10 star rating. I hope the AMT will bring Wess back for many years to come!
I ALWAYS ENJOY GOING TO AMT TO SEE THE ORIGIONS AND I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING WESS COOKE. hE HAS BEEN AT THE AMT SINCE I STARTED GOING THERE YEARS AGO. GREAT PEOSON AND GREAT PEROFRMER. SEE YOU NEXT TIME WESS.
Wess is a really good performer. I really like to watch him in the AMT shows. I think he should start a Brooks and Dunn duo back up because he don't only look like one, he even sounds like one of them. He is just such a talented performer.
That is great that Wess Cook will have his own show . He is very talented. We love him in all the shows we have seen so far and we feel this will really be a great show.
I am so happy Wess's show is finally here, longtime coming, we enjoy Wess and his music and I know this is going to be a great show. Your performances are outstanding!!
So happy to hear that Wess will have an opportunity to put on a show for his fans. Can't wait!
