Meet Rear View Mirror
Rear View Mirror is made up of experienced and dedicated musicians who love recreating the fun and groovy vibe of the 60s. They are:
John Paredes - Keys/Vocals - Influenced by his family's Hollywood connections and musically trained, John brings a breadth of talent and musical knowledge to RVM. Along with backing vocals, John is skilled at adding whatever instrumentation is needed to create whatever sound RVM needs. John also performs in several other well regarded NW bands and acts as RVM's musical director.
Rick Erickson - Guitar/Vocals - With decades of experience performing, Rick is an accomplished musician and has provided guitar tech skills to both NW and national acts. He's a tone freak and while he can impress with his soloing abilities, he's very comfortable providing the perfect background for vocal/pop.
Ed Tissue - Lead vocals male - with years of fronting NW bands, Ed vocals and energy create great connection with the crowd. Formerly with the Penguins, ed provide lead vocals for 2 other bands....and he has a cool GTO.
VALERIE hUDSON - lEAD VOCALS - relatively NEW TO PERFRORMING BUT A NATURAL TALENT, VALERIE BRINGS ENERGY, FUN AND EXCELLENT LEAD AND BACKING VOCALS TO RVM. SHE HAS JUMPED INTO PERFORMING WITH BOTH FEET, LENDING HER VOCAL TALENT TO American VINYL, ALONG WITH OTHER ACTS AS WELL.
Dave Lavin - Bass/Vocals - The bands "manager", Dave (along with John) is co-founder of RVM. A child of the 60s who apparently never grew up, Dave has played all styles of pop and rock music over the years but loves bringing the 60s sound to our audiences.
John Leinhard- Drums/Vocals - john lays it down, faithfully replicating the percussion/drums of the era. In addition, he provides lead and backing vocals. Jeff also pounds the skins for America vinyl and his mellencamp band (that he fronts).
