OK Here's my review
Arrived at about 1 o'clock - greeted by Ade and introduced myself. Proceeded with unpacking my stuff (guitar and video stuff). Took a load of photos of the very nice guitars (Rob Balducci and the 'middle DNA' were definate faves) and mingled a bit (not that I knew anyone ;-) ).
Set up the video stuff (thanks for the audio feed from Pete) - definately need to record the audio separately next year - easy to sync on the computer.
Then the bands started up:
Alan Lennon - things off to a good start - great set and very accomplished - hey Alan play a Jeff Beck cover next time (after out conversation ;-) )
Stefan Lindholm - wild guitar but too many notes for me (well in too short a time!) - I got a headache after about 10 mins - too intense - each to their own
Ever Rain - Now, I really enjoyed them - great vocalist and awesome guitar - any CDs available / website?
Cereal Killer - Hurray - fun band!!!! Refreshing to hear lots of songs - great fun
Wipeout - good set - great guitarists - mmmmh, now that's a lot of kit in that band
Clive Murray - Great - really enjoyed the set - some cool covers (especially the early Vai)
Tony Hernando - Another great set - good FTLOG cover too - disappointing he was playing to a backing track
Rob Balducci - kick ass band - some great guitar playing
- whammy pedal in full effect - regret not buying the CD now I've watched the footage again
Then of course the Jam
Black Crowes - Too Hot To Handle (I think it's called)- lots of fun
ZZ Top - La Grange - hey I got up for this one - note to self - change to C half way through - or you'll sound like arse ;-(
And of course the raffle (I won three things!!!!)
Thanks to the bands and organisers for making it such an enjoyable day.
