Bigfoot

With support from Piston, Theia and Kikamora.
The Station Cannock 4th November 2017.

Tonight brings about my first visit to The Station in Cannock and the promise of quite a night, with none other than Bigfoot, Piston, Theia and Kikamora, all set to make for a great night of spectacular rock.

Kicking the night off loud, heavy and with more pizazz than Cannock’s Firework display were Kikamora, who hail from the Southwest part of the UK. I have to say that this band produce the kind of adrenaline on stage that simply draws you in and for me, Kikamora were addictive to watch. I do hope that these guys head back up this way again and I shall be keeping a beady eye open just in case they do.

Our second band of the night were Theia and here we have one very hard working band whose music and stage presence always make for an excellent nights entertainment, each and every single time that I’ve seen them. Tonight’s set from the band was laden to perfection with a wealth of enigmatic rock, that is characteristic of everything that Kyle Lamley, Paul Edwards and Jack Dalton deliver. In my humble opinion, Theia are one of the most promising up and coming young bands currently out there and judging by the audiences level of enthusiasm and interaction with them, I suspect that many others also share that same viewpoint too.

Next up at The Station were Piston and for me, this was the first chance to catch them live with Rob Angelico at the mic and impressed I was for sure, as Rob and his super charged rock vocals are most definitely a great fit for the band. Piston have made great steps with their music over recent years and their set this evening was a clear indicator as to why their following continues to grow.

Tonight’s headliners were Bigfoot and here we have the band who are currently taking the rock community by storm, with their A+ style of hard hitting rock. By the time that the band took to the stage, the venue was pretty much full to the rafters and with sooo many Bigfoot fans raring to go, there was such a pretty keen atmosphere off stage, that I’m sure fed straight back into the bands performance as they certainly seemed delighted to be here.

There was no mistaking how good these guys are and if you’re yet to catch them live for yourself, then be sure that you do as Bigfoot look set for many great things for sure.

As far as my first impressions of The Station go, this venue has certainly got what it takes to grow and become a firm favourite on the local music scene and it certainly did our four bands proud tonight.

Hard Rock Hell 9

Hafan y Mor Pwllheli – Stage 2 Friday 13.11.15.

Starting the weekend on Stage 2 were Highway to Hell joint winners Bigfoot, who had a good turnout to say it was early in the day and many were nursing hangovers from a late Thursday night. A good heavy set including the crowd’s favourite “Blame it on the Dog” which certainly woke you up and got you ready for the day ahead. Jay Hawkins also got to talk with the band and what a great bunch of guys they are!

The Dukes of Bordello have an unusual set up with a double bass but it created an amazingly unique sound that really did work. The Dukes describe themselves as “Rock ‘n ‘Roll troubadours” and “back to basics guitar driven Rock ‘n ‘Roll” and this describes them perfectly, a band to watch out for! Make sure you check out Jay’s interview with the band aswell.

With the crowd now refueled and despite the rain and gale force winds, stage 2 was getting busier and whilst I was interviewing, the afternoon kept the rockers happy with STAGS, Riot Horse, Skanska Mord, Dead City Ruins, Stone Kings, Nine Miles South and Hellion Rising.

After breaking down on a journey earlier this year, Wild Lies were not able to make the Steelhouse Festival, so I was happy to see they had managed to make the journey to Hard Rock Hell ok. The band went down well, with great guitar rifffs and audience interaction.

After chatting with the guys from Hellbound Hearts earlier, this was a band I was looking forward to hearing for the first time and they did not disappoint. Finishing with the bands favourite to play live, “Nancy’s House”, the crowd enjoyed them just as much as I did.

Headlining Stage 2 tonight were Black State Highway and the room was now full for this five piece female fronted band from Brighton and there was no doubt about it at all, the strong vocals of Liva Steinberga simply capitulated the audience.

The after show party saw Fireroad, a four Piece welsh rock band, finished the night in style. After more than twelve hours of music it’s hard to keep the crowd engaged and I was certainly tired by this point, but they gave it their all and put on a good show.
