    What can I say .. You just know when you see a master at work. :bow:

    Bigelf rocked the Institute For The Deaf to the foundations at Manchester last night. Sweat, Lou and myself enjoyed a great night of heavy/prog and I think Tray may have liked it a bit too :D
    I'm sure there will be a photo or two.
    Brilliant, brilliant band.

    OMG what a gig!!! Bigelf were on scorching form, totally brilliant :tup: Seeing Damon in action was amazing, what a super talented guy, not forgetting the rest of the band who were all great too. Damon's son, Baron, was on drums - stepping into Mike Portnoy's shoes must've been one hell of a daunting task for him, but wow he just aced it! The venue was spot on, really enjoyed the two support bands - Jolly and Bend Sinister - and to top off an all round fantastic night got to meet Damon afterwards [​IMG]

    Yet again Bigelf were brilliant, they never cease to amaze me, support was ok but not a patch on the main band. The venue is really good, I will be looking for further bands playing here in the future.

    I finally got to meet the great Man, nice chap and very modest, I hope they will be back round soon, this band should be huge.
