Progmeister Festival at The Studio, Hartlepool
Saturday March 26th 2011

The Progmeister Festival, the first prog rock festival of its kind in the Teeside area was a resounding success. Congratulations to Steve Petch, mastermind and organiser behind the event.  It's testament to Steve's organisational skills that the six bands were able to set up and de-rig on a relatively small stage so slickly and without any problems!  And what an audience - it was a real pleasure to play to such an attentive and appreciative crowd.

Thanks must also go to Steve's lovely wife Helen, who made sure the bands were amply fed.  Even the veggies were catered for, and that's something you don't find at every gig!
