Another show under my belt, and another 2 bands that are new to me. I was not looking forward to tonight, especially with bands I don't know. Oh sure I have heard the name Buckcherry many a time, but never really had the mind set to check them out, I think it was because of the name, I kept thinking Chuck Berry.

So doors opened at 8pm, and first band hit the stage at exactly 9:30, I have to say I am a little embarrassed as the first band up tonight is a local band right out of our own backyard, which I have never heard or seen previously - their name - "Pigeon Park". Check them out on facebook. They put a lot of energy into their set, and I quit enjoyed it, more rock/alternative style, and the crowd loved these guys. I have to say though, the drummer, through the whole set always had a smile on his face, and you knew he was enjoying himself up there immensely. I did like the fact that they were always moving, playing a great set and giving 100%. Hope they get the opportunity to play more shows, they were good.

Headlining tonight is Buckcherry, I don't know what I was expecting, but damn, I wish I had known they were this good because I would have made sure to catch previous shows. I will be up front again though when they come through next time. Totally enjoyed their set, a ton load of energy, phenomenal music, all executed to perfection. Wow!! And the crowd was very enthusiastic for them too. I can't even tell you the names of the songs, because I don't know them, but I enjoyed every one. There were a couple that people were singing along to.  People and band were like one tonight. Feeding off each other. An hours drive home and I am thinking how am I ever going to convey just how exceptional Buckcherry is….I can’t really, so I think the next best thing is to catch them at one of the remaining dates:
