Hotwired Riverside, CA, United States

The Band…
Hotwired is an original female-fronted hard rock band from Southern California. Their music embodies the energy and spirit of the rock n roll arena band. Since the band’s inception in 2008, they have amassed a loyal following playing shows along Hollywood’s famed Sunset Strip. Venues under their rock & roll belt include The Roxy, Viper Room, Key Club, Rainbow, The Joint, and their “home away from home,” the world famous Whisky A Go Go.

The Shows and the Memories…
It is at the Whisky where the band really cut their “musical teeth.” They have played over 50 shows there, some of which they headlined. They’ve also been one of the “go to” bands to open for national touring acts including Lita Ford, Jack Russell’s Great White, Kix, Black N Blue, Gilby Clarke and Matt Sorum, formerly of Guns & Roses, and Vains of Jenna.

Other memorable shows include being part of the Key Club’s Hollywood Rock Convention, a four day music extravaganza in which signed and unsigned bands came together to show that hard rock is far from being dead. Among the bands Hotwired shared the bill with were Bulletboys, Pretty Boy Floyd, Enuff Z’nuff and Chris Holmes of Wasp and his all star band, “The Big Ball Stars.” Hotwired has also opened for 80’s hard rock band, Great White (“Once Bitten Twice Shy”) during their 25th Anniversary Tour and 80’s pop band Missing Persons (“Living in L.A.”)

Rocking in the New Year…
On New Year’s Eve 2013, Hotwired opened for 80’s metal band Kix at the Whisky. It was the second New Year’s Eve show they were a part of at the Whisky, the other being in 2008 with nationally renowned Led Zepagain, the premier Led Zeppelin tribute band.

2014…
In January of this year, Hotwired proudly got to be part of the Whisky A Go Go’s 50th anniversary celebration. On that very special night, the band shared the stage with Slash, formerly of Guns & Roses/Velvet Revolver, Lita Ford and Cherie Currie, both former Runaways, and the legendary Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple/California Breed/Black Country Communion. It was a rock & roll night to remember and the most memorable highlight of Hotwired’s career thus far.

Also in 2014, at the rockin’ M15 concert hall in Corona, CA, Hotwired had a blast opening for 80’s all star tribute band, Let it Rawk. who were comprised of members from L.A. Guns, Stryper, Black N Blue, and Ace Frehley’s band.

The here and now…
Hotwired is currently in the studio recording their new album which will be released the early part of 2017. It will coincide with an album release party and performance held at no other than the place where it all started…The Whisky A Go Go. It’s very fitting for a garage band from the neighborhood who had dreams of playing down in Hollywood. See you from the stage!
