Who Are Rant 'n' Rave?

Simply put, they're the best covers/originals band on the circuit today. Their shows are full of energy with fantastic songs ...but that's just our opinion.

They're a four piece, yes that's right, a four piece band that has two lead guitarists that share the gigs and they play everything live. No pre-recorded backing tracks, no auto tune and no sampling. They've been called a Pub Rock Band, a Covers Band, an Americana Band and a Party Band; they simply call themselves Rant ‘n’ Rave! Sometimes their shows only feature covers of great songs while other times their shows feature their own original great songs …and sometimes it’s a mixture of both. Playing with a line-up of guitars, keyboards and drums, they play anything with a beat - Rock ‘n’ Roll, Pop, Rock, Rhythm ‘n’ Blues, Ballads, Soul and Country.

They tailor each show to suit the event and its audience and whatever they play they do it with a bit of passion and a sense of fun.


Rant ‘n’ Rave don’t have the same sound for every song and they play for everybody in the audience. They want to ensure that everyone who hears them leaves the venue ranting and raving about what a great time they’ve just had. So whatever occasion you have for a night of live music, however you want to shake your tail feathers, you can’t go wrong if you book this band.

You can hear some of the bands own music by clicking on the record icons below or selecting the ReverbNation link at the foot of this page.


Further reading...

To date the band has released five critically acclaimed cds featuring only original music and the latest two cds display a much wider range of musical styles. They also feature some amazing guest artists. Furthermore, when Maverick magazine decided to release their first ever covermount cd with their 2012 Nov/Dec issue, they had a world of music to choose from for the opening track and they chose a track from Rant ‘n’ Rave’s debut cd, Americana Shakedown

– now that speaks volumes in the world of international publishing.

One last thing, when this band starts to play, everybody should get up and dance!
