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.
Gene Wilson - Guitar/Vocals - The focal point vocally, Gene possesses excellent range and the ability to sing any style. From the Portland area where he performed in several popular bands, he also brings strong guitar skills to the band. He's also a Packers fan which, well, we won't hold against him:).
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.
Jeff Lockhart - Drums/Vocals - Also providing drums/percussion for Crème Tangerine, the popular Beatles tribute, Jeff is well versed in recreating sixties music. His experience as director of the Kirkland Performance Center also enables him to bring excellent production and creative skills to the band.
