Great Day! Great Event! went by far too Quickly, really enjoyed myself!

Jaded Heart - were excellent but their set seemed really short, wished they had played more classics but still an excellent set would kill to see songs like "We'll Drag you down", "F***ing Hating You", "Healer" & "Dreams you'll never see" Live! Great kick start for the day! wish these guys could get a support or even a gig over here!

Adraingale - wasn't expecting much from these guys, but they won me over by the end of the set. Been familar with their songs probably made it easier for me to enjoy their set & It was a Adraingale greatest hits set! Still think these should have been 1st band with Jaded Heart Second!

Valentine - what can i say amazing, was blown away by these guys performance. Although its hard to take this band seriously cause Hugo is the spitting image of my brother in law (well i think so anyway!). Their was a few lulls in the set (for me) but on the whole a great set lots of energy, The crowd seemed to like em anyway! Disappointed their was No "Once in A Lifetime" but some of the Hugo solo songs like "If Your Ever Lonely" & "Tell it to my heart" made up for that omission! Excellent news these guys are gonna do another record!

Jorn - hmmmm, not impressed at all! was contemplating having a nap! I think bad song choice may have been his downfall, for the casual fan, all the songs i know Jorn for were not played. Great Voice mind, just didn't enjoy his firefest set! For me the lowest point of the day!

Harem Scarem - EXCELLENT, thes guys were amazing, first and unfortunatley the last time i'll get to see them! Not the song choices i was expecting, but still a damn great set! Kicking off with "Dagger" one of my fav HS tracks! No "Hard To Love", "How Long" or "Honestly" but their omission of these songs was made up for me anyway by a song i wasn't expecting , my favourite HS track "With a little Love" which was followed by the awesome "Killing Me"! But like the day it went by far too quickly! Some great onstage banter especially when Pete's guitar died! Not too sure about Harrys new musical direction (he treated us to a few lines to a backstreet boys song). Wish these guys would reconsider splitting!

Tyketto - for me band of the day, amazing set! only downside was some screeching coming out of the speakers towards the end of the Tyke's set. Think some one was trying to deafen me! Obviously Mr Vaughn never disapoints and delivers all those classic tunes with great showmanship! playing my fav Tyke song "Meet Me in the Night" is always a good way to make me happy! Great crowd reaction to these guys, creating a great atmosphere! "Burning Down Inside", "Wings" , "Strength In Numbers", "Rescue Me" , "Walk On Fire" , "Catch My Fall" & "Standing Alone" all going down well! Oh and ofcourse "Forever Young". Always love Dannys onstage banter & "speeches" a great ambassdor for Melodic Rock! was considering making a few phone calls and getting over to Ireland for the last Tyke gig! i was very fortunate to get to see the Tykes twice before and they have never disapointed! If you can get there GO!!!!!

Quote of the Day - Danny Vaughn " And they say theirs no fanbase for this type of music, F********** YOOOOOOUUUUU!"

I couldn't have articulated it better myself!

FM - The set was a "people pleaser", but thats not a bad thing! I enjoyed their performance, especially "All Or Nothing". These guys can be a bit too light for most fans, but i'm a big softie and likes me keyboards! GReat Set don't think FM fans would be disapointed, but i think the band were a bit rusty and it'll be intresting to see how the guys perform in 2008, hope the guys come to my neck of the woods!

Right brown nosing time, obviously big thanks to Kieran & Bruce for organising the event. All the crew and everyone who helped make this show happen and work. Shows like this reaffirm why i love this type of music it was a great day and i enjoyed myself immensely! So Thanks have to go to all involved behind the scenes!

only downside for me personally was the venue, not a big fan of the place, its not a very me freindly place ahhh well can't have everything can we and i know the the state of the venue has absolutley nothing to do with anyone involved with Firefest! So please don't take this as a moan, just stating a fact! although don't be surprised if when FFV is announced rock city doesn't have an accidental collison with a wrecking ball and some blueprints from a mystery source drop through the distraught owners letterbox! hahaha!
