Midnight Ride

Southern California’s Most Diverse Wedding and Events Band

About the band

  • Midnight Ride was formed in November, 2009 and has performed over 600 shows across 11 different counties since. This is the most versatile 5-piece cover band in all of Southern California, with a repertoire that spans across 7 decades, covering music from the 1950's-2010's.

    Each talented member has years of stage experience. Drummer Lucas and Bassist Shawn keep the Midnight Ride engine running strong and groovy, while Guitarist Joel unleashes beefy chords and tasty solos. Our keyboardist Stephen will also layer on the funky sounds and professional textures, just like the record! Last but certainly not least, we add in the powerful and versatile lead vocalist, Hannah, showing off her powerful range while commanding the crowd with her soulful vocals and high energy.

  • With this band you get top notch musicianship, sweet harmonies, and high energy stage presence. But most importantly, this band's #1 priority is making sure that every audience has a great time; they take the satisfaction of their crowds very seriously!

    Midnight Ride plays everything from clubs and casinos to private parties and large concerts. Contact us for our reasonable rates or any additional questions.
