WSG/ SXX


ONE... The Only Tribute to Metallica, was established in 2008, in their hometown of Minneapolis, MN. These four horsemen have expanded from the Twin Cities and brought North America an amazing national level touring tribute to the biggest hard rock and heavy metal band of all time.

Unlike the other Metallica tribute and cover bands, ONE focuses explicitly on the audio and visual aspects of a LIVE Metallica show. Their catalog consists of over 60 songs from their early garage band days up to the legends that they are today. ONE's stage show is a memorable one that fans will remember from the 80's and 90's. Theatrical thrills that have been encompassed into a full arsenal of pyrotechnics, stage props, and some rare early days memorabilia and signature instruments will keep fans coming back for more.

This is not your average tribute band. ONE has played with many large national acts on a number of festival and amphitheater stages. Members of ONE have not only worked as part of the crew , but have also been fortune enough to jam with Metallica on their main stage!

It's time you experience ONE once and for all - and the rest will be history!

SXX:
Longtime southwest Michigan hard rock band SXX is writing new songs and taking new energy to the stage. The Kalamazoo, Michigan band continues to gain fans as they create music and perform live. Since the earliest days when they were a cover band called Bad Oscar, SXX has independently released 6 albums and performed countless concerts that broaden the band’s following.

SXX is Richard Nuyen (Lead Vocals, Bass), Shawn Rainer (Drums), Jeff Weers (Electric Guitar), and Phil Wiswell (Electric Guitar). SXX puts on a high energy rock show with crunchy precise rhythms, ripping duel leads, and hard driving original songs. The band is currently performing live behind their latest album "Tell Your Friends". They play shows in rock clubs, outdoor summer festivals, theaters, and just about anywhere their fans will bring them.

SXX has performed rock concerts with national touring acts Sevendust, Jackyl, Otep, Firehouse, LA Guns, Adler's Appetite and more. They have also performed with hundreds of Michigan bands and regional acts. The band has played successful music festivals like The Sturgis Toy Run, Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival, and Rockapalooza, bringing their own brand of hard rock to thousands of new fans.

{Saginaw} Get the Led Out
@ FirstMerit Bank Event Park
Event on Facebook · Venue Website · Venue Map

GTLO’s mission is to bring the studio recordings of Led Zeppelin to life in concert. Led Zeppelin themselves never attempted replicating their recorded work in concert, as it would have required hiring additional musicians. Get The Led Out however, is ALL about that!
There are many acts out there performing the music of Led Zeppelin. Most are impersonator groups that mimic Zeppelin’s live performances with the extended, improvisational versions of the songs. Others do a combination of this, and their own versions. Get The Led Out is the only act out there devoted to painstakingly recreating the songs in all their depth and glory.
