I've been looking forward to Balloonfest Saturday ever since I found out about Tremonti being signed to play. I think he's an underrated guitar player, and a fantastic songwriter.

Mark and his band didn't disappoint, either! They hit the stage with some serious chops, and ferocity that I love to see a heavy band have. They really enjoy playing these song, have a lot of skill on their instruments, and really work on bonding with the crowd, trying to make sure the people watching are as big a part of the show as they are.

If you missed it, you missed a great band, and a perfect kickoff to Balloonfest 2013! Don't miss the rest of the weekend, it promises to be fantastic!
