The Rivals are a four (soon to be five) piece band from Hertford providing live music and entertainment of all genres.
The combination of excellent musicianship plus a wide mix of music ensures a great party or event every time.
Elaine joined the band as vocalist in January 2019. She has a wealth of experience both in bands and theatre.
She's busy learning our set right now, and has brought new songs to us as well - we look forward to sharing them with our audiences!
Creating a foundation for the band along with rock solid timing is just one of Pat's roles in The Rivals. Her energetic drumming kicks the band's sound out at the audience while at the same time providing a flexible base for the rest of the rhythm section to build upon.
Pat's main stage kit is a Pearl BLX with Ziljdan Avensis Cymbals.
JJ has gigged for a variety of covers bands over the past 15 years and can play Mustang Sally backwards at double speed now.
If you catch him with his anorak on, feel free to mention the history of classic jukeboxes.
Fender Jazz / Fender Precision bass, through an Ashdown MAG C410T-300 (stadium gigs) or Hartke Kickback 15 (pubs).
Mick joined the band in June 2015 after having had a long career as bass player for Mod Revival band Small World. He left his hair behind to join The Rivals.
