The Premier Chicago Tribute Band

In the summer of 2015, local Charlotte drummer Mike Graci had an idea: He wanted to break away from the run-of-the-mill cover music he heard being played around town so he worked to put together something special. He began diligently seeking out the musicians required to realize his vision. With all of the pieces in place, the group established themselves as Chicago Rewired - The Premier Chicago Tribute Band.

I had the pleasure of booking Chicago Rewired - The Premier Chicago Tribute Band for a concert in August 2016 at Shallowford Square in Lewisville, NC. Working with the band was a pleasure from the beginning of the booking process to the conclusion of the event. This band drew in the largest crowd we have ever had for a concert at our under the stars series. Thousands gathered in the outdoor square and loved the music and the energy of the band. I would highly recommend this band and would like to book them again at a later date. They are all very professional, highly talented, and a definite crowd pleaser.

-- Stacy Howard (Events Planner; Town of Lewisville, NC)
