Orlando-area favorite Seven Mary Three and hard rockers Firehouse will headline nearly 60 bands performing three days of music for the 16th annual Leesburg Bikefest – one of the largest motorcycle rallies and music events in the country.
This year’s Bikefest set for April 27-29 in downtown Leesburg will feature ten entertainment venues and performers from across the country spanning rock, blues, folk, country and all music in-between for an estimated 200,000 spectators. The event also will feature motorcycle exhibits and shows, vendors and lots of food. Admission is free.
Native Floridians Seven Mary Three are a rugged rock band with a devoted following in the Orlando area, mixing driving, amplified hits such as “Cumbersome” and “Water’s Edge” with raw and earthy acoustic tunes. The group has performed for nearly two decades and enjoyed platinum success in the 1990s while performing alongside bands like Aerosmith, Matchbox Twenty and Three Doors Down.
Their 2009 release of “Backbooth” under their own label, Settle Up Records, was recorded before a lucky group of fans in Orlando. The group will perform in Leesburg’s Towne Square on Saturday, April 28.
North Carolina hard rock band Firehouse best known for the hit singles “Don’t Treat Me Bad, “All She Wrote” and “Love of a Lifetime” have several top-selling albums. The latest, “Full Circle,” debuted last year. Firehouse will perform Friday, April 27.
