The 1st time you decided to come to ProgPowerUSA, what drew you in? I remember hearing Nightwish for the 1st time, bought 2 cd's at Media Play (Wishmaster & Century Child) and I was sitting in the car waiting for my wife to get out of Kohl's. Totally hooked on the band after a few spins!Later, I was surfing the internet searching for info on the band when I came across the ProgPower info. I asked my wife if she wanted to go to Atlanta since CircleIICircle were playing and she was infatuated by Zak, Symphony X and Evergrey were other selling points to me. She said, "sure" you buy the tickets and I'll go". How many years later, and I can remember almost everything about that 1st time. The Pagan's Mind table and the incredible mindblowing show they put on. Secret Sphere and Ramon, the singer. He was so thrilled to be there, as was I. Redemption before they were the great band that they are. I can't remember who sang with them though. Mercenary ripping our faces off! I bought duplicates of 2 of their cd's to take back to a friend at home. Watching Michael Romeo play...so many great memories! The bartender!!! Yum! Ok, back on topic. What brought you there? Any special memories from that 1st time?
