Official site of North East Covers Band Rivelino

Rivelino are a North-East covers band who have been whipping the pubs and clubs of Tyneside and beyond into a musical frenzy for the last 8 years. Playing all genres of music we cover Rock, Pop, Funk and Soul classics by Bruce Springsteen, Oasis, Bay City Rollers, Coldplay, Rolling Stones, Jackie Wilson, Kings of Leon, Rod Stewart, Stereophonics, Sam Cook, Paulo Nutini, Fleetwood Mac, U2 and many more with a unique fun style of delivery, humor & enthusiasm. Audience participation is hugely encouraged (if not demanded ) and we’re never averse to playing audience requests (or at least busking them badly) when the night demands it.
Available for pubs, clubs, weddings, birthdays, corporate events & anniversaries we regularly play venues big and small including racecourse gigs at Ripon, Carlisle and Belfast, regular outdoor summer gigs at The Marine Park and Arbeia Roman Fort, all of the North-East’s premier Wedding Venues & Function suites (Slayley Hall, Beamish Hall, Newton Hall, Rainton Meadows Arena, Stadium of Light); various hotels (Hilton Newcastle, Marriott Sunderland, Little Haven) the best live music pub/club venues in the region.
Rivelino are a ‘night-to-remember’ band who pride ourselves in thriving off the energy of our audience, playing the songs YOU want to hear to send you home after an unforgettable (subject to personal alcohol intake) with a smile on your face, a skip in your step and a tune in your ear.
Ladies and Gentlemen… Dig out your dancing shoes, get on your glad-rags and warm up those vocals because We won’t go home ’til you are Wasted!
