Rearviewmirror is Ontario’s tribute to Pearl Jam
5 musicians have come together with one common goal, to recreate the music of Pearl Jam.
The tracks you are listening to were recorded live off the floor at rehearsal.
"Saw you at Boston Manor April 26th, 2013. What a fantastic evening of rock n' roll. It was an amazing show....again. As a huge Pearl Jam fan, having seen them many times, I can say that in ways, your show is better than an actual Pearl Jam show. Musicanship was fantastic, the quality and tibre of Eddie's voice came through on track after classic track. Thank you for playing "WHY GO" for me at the end, brilliant! It was a memorable night and you should be playing much more often. We'll see you at the next show. COME AND SEE THEM!!" - Dave N
"...please extend our thank you to all of the band - we really appreciate the effort you guys put into your shows - looking forward to your next retrun to the Boston Manor and have a great summer - cheers" - Mark and Andy, Boston Manor, Burlington
"to the band - you guys were wickedly awesome! thanks for playing smile and thanks for a great night. to other people in the area - if you get a chance to go see these guys, do it. they're amazing." - eddie would go - Pearl Jam Message Board
"You cats know how to rock! I thought 'yeah right, this guy's gonna pull off Eddie, that's a tough vocal to cover', but man, you blew me away!!" - Mickey - Manager - Healeys
"We had a great night, you guys will be back here for sure!" - Sammy - Manager - Johnny B Night Club
"It can't sound any closer to the real thing than that!!" - Head Chef -Johnny B Night Club

Recently Mike and Jeff Ament teamed up to design and build the Lull JAXT4 Jeff Ament signature bass. Here's Pauli and Mike after their interview (www.cosmomusic.ca).

we hope to see them all again soon. Thanks to Tommyrot for
warming up the crowd, these guys have some killer originals.
Saturday was great too, back on one of the best stages around,
with lots of familiar faces in the crowd, and a good solid 3 way
guitar war to finish off the night. Both clubs are already asking
for new dates so stay tuned, we should be back at
Norma Jean's and Johnny B's in the summer.

Happy New Year everyone!! And thank you for all of you
who came out to party with us at the new Healey's Roadhouse.
I think you will all agree this is an awesome club, and something
Toronto needed. Thanks Jeff, Randy and Mickey for giving
bands a great place to play, and fans of live music a perfect
place to see a band. It was a good night, if you were there,
thanks for taking the time to come down, it's always great to
hang out with old friends and new friends, catching up and
swapping stories over a few drinks and some tunes, hope
to see you all again soon.
Oct. 23rd, 2006
Well then, another awesome night at Healey's last Friday.
The place was packed and jumpin'. Once again Randy and
Mickey made us feel right at home. Wade and Raul made
sure we sounded good, and it was just a great night all around.
Thanks to Healey's and the PJ fans for a great party. check out the photos
Once again another great crowd at the Fiddler's Green in
Cambridge last Friday. The band had a blast playing for
you guys, thanks for singing along to all the tunes, there
was some times you were louder than us, sounded awesome.
Sept 16th, 2006
We all had a great time at Park Place last night, and sounds
like we will be back there again in December so check
back to see when.
We would like to thank the faithful Pearl Jam fans that
keep coming out to party with us, especially those guys
we met last night that have been to every show and are
already making plans for Cambridge. That'll be a good one for sure.
Big kudo's to Marco who filled in on bass on short notice,
and ended up doing the last 3 shows with us, and really
nailed it everytime. I think Stu's sister said it best,
"This isn't a band with a substitute bass player, it's more
like a band with 2 bass players".
