Yes, it was a shame that the event wasn't more well-attended - particularly for a great cause. The organizers certainly did a good job marketing/advertising the night but I guess the postponement took some wind out of the event's sails. The bands were really enjoyable, though. The main band performed a very cool selection of 80's songs (some you'd expect and some that were terrific choices ... Missing Persons? Very cool). The teen band, RADIO SILENCE, was amazing! Better luck to the organizers at future events. Don't give up! Chris Traynor
