Got to agree that it was yet another highly memorable Firefest. I was only there for the Sunday and mainly for Mitch Malloy and his performance and crowd response was phenomenal! Great sound, all the classics and fantastic to hear the full debut CD live (other than Mirror, Mirror I think).

Firehouse were superb as expected (saw them in Dudley with Vaughn band a few years back and they were similarly impressive) and like you Stuart I was not particularly fussed re Danger Danger beforehand but thought I'd give them a listen and thoroughly enjoyed their performance. Real party rock band and Ted Poley is a born leadman for the live shows.

Only saw last few songs of White Sister as not a band I know anything and listened to a few tracks on myspace of theirs that sounded really dated and uninspiring to me, but seemed like they were hugely popular with the crowd and got everybody going. Tall Stories were great and Steve Augeri came across really smooth, professional and confident as a front man but yeah seemed that most of the crowd didn't know their stuff. I sang me heart out with a few other guys near the front though and loved seeing them live. Great performance.

Saw the last 3 Burn tracks and they sounded really good, with a great sound and stage presence. Then David Readman played all the best off his solo CD and he and his band did a cracking job I thought too. Missed Rox Diamond and I think that was the lot!

A superb event that a totally knackered and possibly halfcut Kieran at the end said might happen again after all. I wonder if sobriety and a few days recovery might bring him back to original conclusion that this is the last Firefest. If so, it was a superb event and Kieran and all the crew deserve massive congratulations for bringing such top melodic rock/AOR bands to our shores these last few years. Really hope that speech at the end turns into reality though and some more rabbits can be pulled from hats for next year (or even bringing back FM, Winger, House of Lords, Fair Warning, Wig Wam et al would be great for me). The Storm would go down... well... a storm (even if Kevin Chalfant with band playing The Storm tunes). But hey that's for next year... here's hoping and praying!!
