The Rivals are a five piece band from Hertfordshire providing live music and entertainment of all genres.
As well as performing regularly in the local pub and club circuits, we love to take bookings for private parties. As well as providing a couple of hours of live music, we can also play your favourite dance tunes through our PA whilst the band take a break - even your own playlists from your phone! So you don't need to hire a DJ as well!
Broadly speaking, we can perform in most places in Hertfordshire / Enfield / West Essex.
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.
Having a female vocalist for the first time has enabled the band to extend its set list into places we've never dared go before!
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.
