Hotwire is one of the premier Bluegrass Bands in the Northwest.

If you have never seen them, this is your chance to enjoy

some hard-driving bluegrass played by the masters.--Bob Greer, Bluegrass in the Barn, Nampa, Idaho

I've seen Hotwire many times and each performance is better than the last.  They are fabulous in the park, on stage, or in your backyard! They have an edgy, sharp sound--it's Bluegrass with attitude!  Jen T.-- Eugene, Oregon

We highly recommend the band “Hotwire.”  We were privileged to have them for a show at our Old Opera House Theatre in Kooskia, Idaho.  Our audience really loved their music and their song selections were great. They were excellent on their musical instruments and vocals.  They really interacted well with the audience and provided a real electric, fast-paced show which the audience responded to with a standing ovation. As owners of the theatre, we were pleased to work with Hotwire and plan to have them back. --   Mike and Marcia Graves, Old Opera House Theatre,  Kooskia, Idaho 


“I thought Hotwire was wonderful -- you just keep pushing the edges out a little further.  So much power and drive and the joy of hearing such excellent musicians all playing together.  It is like a most wonderful and intricate classical dance.  Or even better -- I love Hotwire's music for the same reason I love chamber music.” Carolyn Johnson, board member of the Idaho Bluegrass Association, after our first 2012 performance at Kamiah, Idaho in May.
