Drums - not enough oomph - can barely make out the hats, some nice grooves though. Shame about the fumble in the first song, well held though.
Center - Decent vocals, but wobbles at times. Guitar a few clipped notes here and there.
S.R - Guitar fine, not cutting through as much as it needs to though. Vox feels a touch restrained.
Bass - Bass not just copying guitar, good - some interesting bass lines.
Whole thing is quite messy, not always in time with one another.
Feels like you're using all the instruments effectively - nothing is redundant.
Songs are well constructed, though very messily presented. I don't know if you might benefit from stripping back some sections.
Your songs go to some interesting places, but nothing too unfamiliar. Not particularly revolutionary. Songs all sound fairly similar.
Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 2/5
A big ending to a song like that is quite out of place. Whole set seems a bit restrained.
I like what you are going for however it needs a bit more punch and you need to be crisper.

Vox - mostly ok, becomes a little forced at higher notes.
Guitar - cleanly played, good solo.
Bass - fine, cleanly played
Drums - giving the kit a good wallop
On and off clearly
Second song seems to jump about. Try to link sections together in a coherent way.
Nice interplay between instruments - something feels off about that drum and bass though.
I think you owe phil collins royalties for that drum fill. You've mixed a variety of styles to decent effect. Some interesting ideas not all work out though.
Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 2.5/5
Not a lot going on on stage, you seem to be having fun though.
A decent trio of songs, I think they need refining. Some of your sections don't quite flow and make your songs a little disjointed

Guitar - mostly very clear picking and strumming, the occasional clipped note which is fair enough give the complexity.
Maybe don't tell your audience you think that they might fall asleep.
Songs are very well structured, good use of dynamics and different picking to add flavour to the songs.
Several repeated motifs, but with enough changing each time to keep things engaging. Nothing particularly new but a good example of the style. Influences from several different styles showing through.
Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 3/5
Some good guitar faces. Hard to do much onstage when you need to be sat down. Crowd seems enthralled though.
Very well played and written set. Nothing revolutionary but highly competent.
Artist: Cap'n Falcon
Drums - loads of power. Seems going back to 4/4 threw you off a bit. Good beats though.
S.R guitar - good use of feedback, huge sound.
Vox guitar - simple riffs but nicely complement the songs.
Bass - backing up guitars, possibly a touch under utilised.
Vox - you're cracking a bit at the heavy bits where you really need the power
1 minute over the 15 minute time limit. On and off without issue.
Good use of dynamic changes and half time. Heavier sections are your forté some of the quieter bits start to drag.
Straight into 10/4 (good buddy).
First song is very very tool-esque.
Wear your influences very much on your sleeve.
Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 3.5/5
Lots of energy on stage. Wall of sound.
Great set, you need to find your own sound. Need to work on vocals too - the softer bits were slightly off and you lose it at the top end where it feels like you need more power.

Drums - flawless dynamics control, perfect amount of sizzle coming of those cymbals, with a hearty thub from the snare.
Guitar - very well played. Clean and clear.
Bass - some tasty bass licks, compliments the rest of the music.
Keys - nice, well utilised, suitably spacey sounds.
On and off without issues.
Banter is fairly brief, though seems to be an inside joke leading into the last song which split the room a bit.
Songs put together very well. Not a huge amount of dynamic changes found, seems to be all out all the time, which leads to a fairly repetitive feel.
Virtuoso guitaring isn't really anything new, but this is well thought out stuff with some interesting ideas. Botch called it 'videogame music' which is the same insult I've seen levelled at Satriani, but it fits to a point. All epic all the time, vary the feel a bit.
Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 4/5
Loads of energy. Some more great guitar faces.
A very good example of this genre, but a bit cookie cutter. You're all talented musicians, you could write some very interesting stuff unless you're content just showing off what you can do onstage.
Artist: Jack Rawlins
Vox - soulful stuff. Good range. Possibly losing it at the top end.
Guitar - clearly strummed, but not much more complex than that.
On clearly, no issues during, off without issues.
Oh no, you finished exactly on 15 mins, then played another song.
Soulful vocals over strummed guitar. Music nothing complex, seems a little like the music was just slapped on as backing to the vocals. Second song starts out much better - more like this. Good interplay of instrument and voice.
Fairly standard singer songwriter stuff. Slightly different feel to third song.
Stage Presence/Entertainment Value: 2.5/5
Good power to your voice, crowd seems engaged, but not much happening on stage.
You're a very good vocalist, but your music underlying the vocals is a bit thread bare at times. When you've hit the set time exactly don't start a new song...
Singer songwriter is a rather over subscribed genre, you need something special to stand out.
