"THE CHAIN's" journey began in 2009. The band "Harder Edge" has always been a classic rock cover band and has been together since 1991, but because of our lead singer's voice comparison to "STEVIE NICKS" and our drummer's similar looks and drumming style to "MICK FLEETWOOD", we thought it would be great to also become a Tribute Band to one of the greatest bands of all time. Within a short 4 years, THE CHAIN has performed for real English Royalty, become a regular at the Hard Rock Café and has become known around the world as one of the top tribute bands to the immortal FLEETWOOD MAC. So far THE CHAIN has opened for bands such as EDDIE MONEY & STARSHIP. Performed to a crowd of 36,000 plus at the 3 Rivers Regatta in Pittsburgh, Pa. We are the "ORIGINAL" FLEETWOOD MAC Tribute Band in Western Pa. Little did we ever imagine the outstanding response that has been flowing in. FLEETWOOD MAC will always be imitated by bands like ours, but can "NEVER" be duplicated. They're like a Fine Wine... keeps getting better with age! To Date, every performance has been "Sold Out" and "Standing Room Only" for THE CHAIN.
"In my opinion, "THE CHAIN" is the only Tribute Band that pays complete homage to the original band - Fleetwood Mac. I am sure that if the original members were to check out this band they would be in full agreement. No band compares in any shape or form so it is with great pleasure that I humbly recommend "THE CHAIN" to the corporate sector worldwide. Booking this band will thoroughly enhance your company image and ensure a great night's entertainment. Book with complete confidence."GILL...Spot On Entertainment. UK ~2013
THE CHAIN provides a great night of entertainment for any fan of Fleetwood Mac - casual or hardcore. Their shows at the Hard Rock Cafe have all been great successes, and we look to continue to celebrate the great music of Fleetwood Mac with THE CHAIN for years to come.Roy Martin-Smith | Sales & Marketing Manager | Hard Rock Cafe Pittsburgh,Pa ~2013
They say that, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" and THE CHAIN/Harder Edge delivers. They are everything you look for in a cover band. Their look and sound is spot-on! You're definitely going to take a triple-take. Their act, at it's heart is Fleetwood Mac with few nuances that make them uniquely and genuinely themselves. If you ever are in need of a great cover band (or great musicians or performers for that matter), you've found them here! Myron C. Independent Drummer/Teacher 6/4/11

Very Simply... "You guys are just plain GREAT!" Our crowd really enjoyed themselves and have been asking when "THE CHAIN / HARDER EDGE" will be coming back to JOEY D'S. This is the main reason we've booked you guys on a regular basis, way... into 2011. Outstanding Show Folks!

As Chairman of the EQT Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta, the largest inland regatta in the U.S., I am pleased to recommend THE CHAIN to any individual or group who is as appreciative of Fleetwood Mac sounds as we are. THE CHAIN performed twice to rave audience reviews and ovations. We hope to have them back as part of the on stage, outdoor entertainment venue for the 2014 EQT Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta.
