Insulting the Aragon 

To the editors:

I am very tired after all these years of performers insulting the Aragon Ballroom [Hitsville, October 29]. Could it be the problem is not the venue itself but the current acts that insist on forcing their musical "charms" on it?

Since the 1920s--I have never read any accounts of musical artists floundering there: Glenn Miller & his orchestra, Lawrence Welk, Wayne King and a veritable who's who of famous big band artists.

Unfortunately, the present era seems to require excessive overamplification for venues ill suited for same.

While I am only 39 years old, I have never been a fan of loud music, preferring small clubs for my amusement.

Since I think the Aragon is more suited for MTV Unplugged and not 90% of the current acts, I wish this grand venue would cease to be maligned by today's musicians who obviously do not know how to adapt their sound to the venue!
