Live music makes every event better! Cover2Cover - Kelowna's classic rock dance band was formed in 2010 and is the brain child of guitarist Jim Rhindress who wanted to create a rock band with the very best players Kelowna has to offer. He wanted a fun classic rock dance band that would not only have the highest level of musicianship but to create a project with great friends who truly enjoy each other's company. You can really feel the energy when these good friends get together to make great music! They take turns fronting the songs, harmonizing and have a ton of fun doing it!

 

Cover2Cover specializes in songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s through today with new material being added all the time.  We can also perform as a 3-piece or duo depending on the needs of the event.

 

Our sound system is state of the art  and we can provide full stage lighting if needed. We are available for fundraisers, corporate events, private parties and weddings.

 

Cover2Cover has provided classic rock dance music for such large and prestigious events as the Canadian Culinary Championships three years in a row since 2012, sharing the stage with Canadian rock royalty Barney Bentall, Ed Robertson of the Bare Naked Ladies and Allen Doyle of Great Big Sea, Westjet WineFest, Ribfest and Earth Wind & Fire.  

 

You may also have seen us performing classic rock and dance sets for Festivals Kelowna, Westside Daze, private parties and corporate events.

Jim Rhindress

Robert Vallee

Drums / Vocals

Robert started playing in Alberta as a teenager and although they may have been tormented, his parents were always very supportive. 
Cutting his teeth in the Alberta scene as an underage drummer was never a problem,  he had the best fake ID possible! In 1998 family ties, a willing wife, and a desire to live in paradise finally brought him to the Okanagan. Since then he has played in numerous bands and has gotten to know a lot of great musicians. We are excited to have Bob's lead and harmony vocals as well as his killer rhythm holding the groove.

Kim started playing the piano when she was 5 and has a Solo Performer's in voice and piano from Western Conservatory in London.  Kim is well known in Kelowna for her work on stage in a variety of theatre productions and also sings with vintage trio Kitsch 'n Sync. She is busy writing songs and performing with Jim in their duos "Rhindress" and "Smitten" where they perform a variety of songs and styles for weddings, events and parties. She is excited to add her voice and keys to these great classic rock songs!
