Finally it was time for the main event. Bigfoot filled the stage. We have been lucky to see them as many times as we have, are always struck by just how good they are, and tonight, our thoughts are how sad it is that they have decided to call it a day.
Individually, they are superbly talented and the twin guitars of Sam Millar and Mick McCullagh are matched tonight by their verbal sparring. With an hour set packed with familiar songs, the crowd sang every word of every song back to them -Sean Seabrook (Vocals) engaging with them as they do.
The rhythm section of Tom Aspinall (Drums) and Matt Avery (Bass) somehow holding them altogether and as Micl and Sam give us solo's and riffs in every son, we are given one of the best shows I have seen from the band.
They disappear from the stage at the end of ‘The Fear’, as the beer fuelled crowd yell for more. Tom returns first - to find a new drum kit on stage - one more suited to a small child than someone of his stature, but at least it matched the guitars that Mick and Sam returned with.
It had been a set full of high jinks and shenanigans , and by the time they had finished their encore, sprits were high by punters and bands alike. Every one had good things to say about all four bands, but, rightly so, the headliners were the band of the night. We will miss them, but, I am sure that we will see them again - maybe not together as Bigfoot, but with that much talent, they can’t deprive us, surely?!
