"Having Beethoven's Nightmare at Kansas State University was amazing!  It brought a new and exciting awareness to those in the music field and allowed us to extend out into the Deaf Community in Kansas!  We had people travel from various surrounding towns to enjoy the show.  This is definitely an experience that many K-Staters will never forget!"​

"Nightmares really do come true! Beethoven's Nightmare is not only a sight to behold, their music rocks your very soul. This incredible group graced The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota with their smashing presence. Their performance was like no other. It left me craving more and wishing the "nightmare" would never end. I hope to bring this incredible band back to our campus in spring 2014!"​

"Visual and vibrant, Beethoven's Nightmare entertains while engaging their audience. Their music, truly Beethoven's worst nightmare, becomes an afterthought to the pulsating on stage action. Their work presents a medley of acts with a touch of sign songs, mime, magic, and improvisation meshed in. A great band that takes it cue from and responds to the audience."

"Beethoven's Nightmare was electrifiying. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be enlivened, enthralled, and enthused by this wildly all-deaf musical band. I highly recommend it. Go see Beethoven's Nightmare! You won't regret it."

​"Beethoven's Nightmare! Being Deaf myself, this definitively HIT a deep cord within me and gave me the opportunity to finally feel that soul connection you can only get through music. Wow! Did I dance like crazy until my feet could no longer handle it, and even then while sitting, my arms were dancing like mad...oh man!"

​"Beethoven's Nightmare, promoted as the only all-deaf rock band, raised many questions regarding how a "deaf" group could possibly make music. Their performance answered that question with their own music that rocked the house of 10,000 people. Rock on!"

​"I stood in awe with how Beethoven's Nightmare play their own music and perform in sign language, magic, and dance. It was an awesome sight. I had the greatest time in my life being in front of the crowd rocking their hands in the air and dancing with Beethoven's Nightmare. The spirit of it was like being at a rock concert. What a treat!"

The music, the performance of the cast, and the involvement of the audience make for a wonderful evening of entertainment, enjoyment, and relaxation.
