"After a full day of tribute bands at the 26th Leesburg Bikefest, I was patiently waiting for the band Hardwired, a Metallica tribute band that I heard much about. From the very first note,  I could tell that this would be something special.  The crowd, which was about 5,000, flocked to the front of the stage  and enjoyed over 2 hours of Metallica music. No-one was disappointed. It's going to be tough to find a better band then Hardwired for our next show!.  This band is a "must see" in the tribute band world." 

Don Barnard Entertainment Director Leesburg Bikefest


“Man…you gotta love when he has the look, the ability and the voice of the real guy. Was blown away by Hardwired”
