Some feedback from 2008:
Reel Rock tour. Definitly very good.....
Sharp end was good, as you know because you can buy it in any store, but being a reel rock tour venue is something else, you are part of an international choice of venue's all over the world. you, as a Reel Rock tour venue, are on the poster and on the website all over the world. For us it was quite easy to get more than 100 people in the gym wich made the expenses more than worth it. People loved it and are asking already about Reel Rock tour 2009.
