I would love to attend this but sadly no...I will be interested to see the impact this has on Firefest at least 5 or 6 of these band I had down as possible for that gig, Great line up Andrew enjoy everyone who is luck enough to go.

This Friday on Purrfect Timing we will be featuring music from most of the performing bands from MELODIC ROCK FEST, our guests will be Dave Meniketti of Y&T, John Parker of Talon, Pete Fry of Farcry, Terry Brock, and still hoping for a 5th ....we'll see!
Purrfect Timing live on ARfm this Friday at 19:00 GMT (that's 1pm Central US)
As some bands decided to play electric rather than acoustic sets....it made it a bit more interesting....
Goodbye Thrills started the evening off well....following by a bunch of guys calling themselves Rock Sugar!!! Simply marvellous.
Rob Lamothe surprised with an electric set with the inclusion of Doug Odell on bass. Really really good, especially considered that Doug only joined at lunchtime the same day and spent the afternoon rehearsing with Rob in the hotel room.
Alias's 3 piece acoustic set was quality.....sing-along-crowd included.
Mecca went from a planned acoustic set to an 8 piece line-up...good to hear this stuff played live.

Have to echo Steve's sentiments, what a weekend....it was great to see so many old friends and met a lot of new ones, great music, honestly more like an all day/all night party than a concert!
Alias, Farcry, Talon, Jimi Jamison and Voices of Rock Radio, Rock Sugar, Terry Brock (we were in heaven listening to him!), Danger Danger, Ted Poley and Vic Rivera, Trixter, Y&T, Winger....it was nonstop rock....quite a lot of video turning up on the Youtube including Ted Poley's stage dive at the end of his solo set...ha!
The Roadhouse turned out to be a fantastic venue, nice balcony viewing area, plenty of places to sit and relax when you wanted to and the bands were able to have a nice meet and greet with everybody there on Friday's VIP night. Actually I thought they were super nice to all the fans throughout the weekend, really a great weekend from start to finish!
