Re: Neafest, anyone?? I`m back, so here is my review; Day 1, June 18th: Riverside- It was not worth the trouble to bolt down my food I had at this excellent Italian resturaunt located in Downtown Bethlehem. Riverside are from Poland, and their music was mostly metallic riffs married with some keyboard work. Yawn!!! Myself and the better half were clearly bored throughout the performance. Just because you have keyboards in your band does not mean your band is progressive. Steve Hackett- The highlight of the whole festival. Talk about ensemble playing. All band members are quite strong players in their own right. The set was well placed with some tracks from Hackett`s new release, which is his best in years, his past solo material, and a generous helping of Genesis material. I was in my glory as the band ploughed through 'Fly On a Winshield', 'Carpet Crawlers', and the whole 'Firth of Fifth.' Genesis may be defunct and the other members may have forsaken progressive music, but Steve hackett has not. His playing is so fluid and effortless , one wonders how does he do it? It was a pleasure to talk to Mr. Hackett and the rest of the band as they signed my cd`s. You couldn`t ask for a more humble individual than Hackett. What a gentleman! But then again, all the band members were down to earth. This was a real treat. More to come!!
