Established in 2016, Rain City Rewind plays Grunge and Alternative Rock - Big hits and B sides, mostly from the 90’s or thereabouts, focusing heavily on the enormous amount of great music being put out in the 80's & 90's from the Northwest and other areas around the globe. We play mostly in the Greater Seattle area: venues such as The Snoqualmie Casino, Aurora Borealis, Skylark, High Dive, Hard Rock Cafe, Substation, Royal Bear and more.  But we are open to traveling around the Puget Sound/Western Washington Area. We even play a FREE BOAT-IN ONLY concert every year on the shores of Puget Sound outside Olympia, started during the Covid shutdown!

Born in the shadow of the Space Needle’s construction cranes, Rick is a lifelong Puget Sound resident. He has performed as Lead Vocalist in many different projects in the Seattle area covering numerous genres over the last couple of decades. In 2016 after a successful stint fronting the David Bowie cover band, Some Cats from Japan, Rick turned his focus onto his hometown’s musical legacy and formed Alt 90’s/Grunge cover band Rain City Rewind. 


Greg Barnes - Drums


Born and raised in Los Angeles. Greg was drawn to the drums at a very early age. Through a neighbor, Greg had his first chance to play at age 6 and never looked back. During the early 90’s, Greg cut his teeth in the clubs of Hollywood and beyond with an alternative band named Clay. Through that experience, he was very fortunate to share the stage and studio with some incredibly talented and seasoned musicians. Later, Greg spent a decade in the very healthy and competitive Salt Lake City metal scene. Greg first came to Seattle in 2017. After setting in, he joined the 70’s-to-current rock cover band and south-end favorite, Tapshackled. Shortly after, in 2018, Greg joined Rain City Rewind
