"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
