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.
Chicago Rewired - The Premier Chicago Tribute Band is a tribute to “Chicago®” – one the longest running and most successful pop/rock groups in history with record sales topping 100,000,000 including 21 top 10 singles, 5 consecutive number one albums, 11 number one singles, and 5 gold singles. The band comprises a unique blend of talented and seasoned musicians joining forces with the common goal of accurately replicating the timeless music of "Chicago®" – the soundtrack to great memories for so many people.
The members of Chicago Rewired - The Premier Chicago Tribute Band feel very fortunate to play the music that they love and to share their passion. It is their sincere desire that at every performance the audience have as much fun as they are having on stage. Come out to a show, forget about the cares of life for a while, and let the music carry you away.
It was a great decision to bring in Chicago Rewired as the entertainment during our annual corporate retreat. As a law firm with 450 attorneys, it can be challenging to find acts with universal appeal. Chicago Rewired was the absolute right choice for our corporate gathering. One of our partners commented that he had seen the original Chicago 10 times previously, and that our show was like being at one of those concerts. Additionally, Mike Graci and the other members of the band were extremely professional, likeable and responsive. Our experience with Chicago Rewired was first rate!!

I wanted to write to say thank you for the outstanding performance by your band Chicago Rewired at the Dunn Center in Rocky Mt NC for the Rockin' the Years Concert series. Fun was had by all from the beginning to the end. It's not too often that a group will command a 20-minute encore as your band did. I would highly recommend Chicago Rewired to any group that's seeking entertainment for a venue, festival or any other occasion. I extend to you and the band the best and look forward to working with you in the future.

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.
