Ripcord is comprised of Boston-based musicians who have played together in various cover, wedding and original bands over the past decade. This experience enables the group to consistently deliver a perfect blend of hits from all genres; jazz standards, funk, R&B, soul, top 40, country, classic & modern rock… even that new indie tune you just heard on the radio. Ripcord's diversity is impressive; however, it'll likely be the remarkable accuracy, energy, and feel with which they perform that will blow you away.


Most couples select either our 6piece or 8piece lineup; however, other specific configurations are always an option. At minimum, our standard instrumentation includes: female and male lead vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards/synth; our 8piece also features added saxophone and trumpet. Please inquire about Ripcord’s discounted 8piece all-inclusive bundle, which also includes soloists for both your ceremony and cocktail hour!

Ripcord's musicians are also adept at providing music of all styles for both ceremonies and cocktail hours. Our couples have the option of selecting an instrumental soloist of their choice or compiling larger ensembles from the instrumentation contracted for the wedding reception (i.e.- adding horns to the reception band would expand duo/trio/quartet options for ceremonies and/or cocktail hours). Please inquire for more details, as we offer a ton of customization! Read less

INFO FOR BAND

Are you an agency or a band?
Band
What is the size of your band?
Large (6+ musicians)
What music genre does your band play?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Blues, Calypso, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Latin, Motown, Oldies, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Reggae, Rock, Soul, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
What is your band's usual attire?
Formal (ie- dress pants & shirts, with jackets/vests and ties), but open to tastes of particular couples.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Not as part of a standard package, but we could discuss this an option.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
Absolutely... we'll learn songs for both ceremonies and receptions. We also offer additional elements of playlist customization; please inquire for more details.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
Standard would be 120 minutes; however, exceptions can be made whenever necessary.
How much space do you usually require?
Standard would be 10' x 20' to accommodate all musicians and equipment for our 6piece (slightly more when horns are added); however, we've fit into much smaller spaces many times. Please inquire for more details if this is a potential issue.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We provide our own state of the art sound system, a wireless microphone for speeches/toasts, as well as LED stage lighting to illuminate the bandstand.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
Yes- emcee services are included for the event.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Honestly, we have yet to experience this situation. Ripcord has extensive experience at "reading the room" in both wedding and club settings, so getting people to dance/sing is second nature at this point. Please inquire if you'd like to contact any references to support this point; many have elaborated about this in their testimonials posted on our Wedding Wire site.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We typically take two short breaks, the first of which is intended for vendor meals. This really comes down each particular event though, as things sometimes happen with catering. If/when something pops up beyond our control, we have extensive experience improvising to maximize the live performance... altering the length/number of breaks if/when necessary. 
 Yes- industry standard is for meals to be provided by the client.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
Absolutely. This is provided by Ripcord; however, we invite couple to compile their own playlists if they prefer. Please inquire if interested in this option.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
Our musicians and vocalists are all full-time, contracted employees who take their jobs very seriously. If/when a catastrophic event were to prevent a member from performing, we would call upon a long list of equally amazing musicians within our network to step in. These are all musicians with whom we've worked frequently/regularly... not random "hired guns."
What is your overtime rate?
This depends upon the size of the band selected, as we offer 6piece, 7piece, and 8piece bands... more if/when desired. Our OT rate is $50/musician, per half hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Please inquire, as this is dependent upon the exact location and date.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Standard would be 50% down with the signed contract; however, we offer payment schedules whenever necessary. Please inquire for more information.

This band is top notch!!
We were so happy to have Rip Cord perform at our wedding! From the moment I contacted Kevin a year prior until the day after the wedding - he was nothing short of responsive, professional, & accommodating. We had one of them play solo jazz on the keyboard during cocktails (Joe) and then during the reception the band kept every single person up & dancing on the floor the entire night. My guests are still raving about them & seeking to see them perform again.
The band learned specific songs for our wedding & even allowed some of our guests to perform with them on stage.
If you're lucky enough to have an opportunity to book them, do it! You will not be disappointed!

RipCord!!!! The Best. If you are looking for a band you found them. Very responsive, Very Professional and The Sound is out of this world. What a talent they all are. Being in the industry I hear a lot of bands and when I heard them play, I just knew they would be the ones at our wedding. My husband and I where so very happy with them and everyone kept commenting about how well they did. I can not express to you have fabulous the cover song that they learned for our first dance was. We also had live music for our ceremony and it was just perfect. I 100% stand behind Recommending RipCord and we actually are having them play again next April at another family function. Fabulous Talent!!!

This band is seriously amazing. After reading all the 5-star reviews, we couldn't help but have high hopes for a fun night, and they still surprised us with how awesome, talented, and fun they really are. From the moment they kicked off the dancing, the dance floor was overflowing. I can't keep track of all the great things our friends and families have been saying about the band. They were extremely professional, very friendly, and so accommodating to all of our crazy requests. The mix of music they played was perfect. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band. Thanks Ripcord!

Ripcord is absolutely the greatest wedding/cover band of all time. My husband and I knew Joe Carson hand had seen him play acoustic at many venues. I had initially wanted to hire a DJ for the wedding, but my husband had me see the full band play and I was totally obsessed. I really wanted my wedding to be all about a dance party and a good time and after seeing them play I knew they would deliver that. Joe Carson's vocal range is ridiculous (can sing Adam Levine - srsly?!) and both female vocalists are ah-mazing. Joe ended up playing acoustic for our cocktail hour and then the band came on for dinner through the rest of the night. All of our guests were dancing- even my 90 year old aunt! I received more compliments on the band than anything else - they couldn't believe how great they were. I've been to other weddings with bands where they play a few songs and then take a 30 minute break, or they play one song that gets everyone on the dance floor and the next song is slow and everyone clears (mind you, these bands are like double the price of what we paid!). Ripcord played 90% of the night with 2 short breaks. Honestly, if you want the best band for your wedding, look no further. Not only are they talented but they will work with you to make the night everything you hope for musically.

Ripcord was great. They came recommended and they did not disappoint. We heard them play a few times and met with Kevin O'Brien, the manager/bass player, and he was so friendly, helpful and accommodating!
Once the music started, the dance floor was PACKED for the entire night! Young and old alike danced all night and had such an awesome time. The mix of songs was just right for a wedding and the two lead singers were amazing. I've actually heard both female leads (Ananda will knock your socks off, and Mia is amazing). We had Mia and she totally rocked and has the most beautiful voice!
We will never forget how much fun we and our guests had on the dance floor with Ripcord.

We first heard Ripcord play at my best friend's wedding in April 2013. It was the most fun dance party we had ever experienced at a wedding. Once we got engaged, we immediately reached out to Ripcord and were thrilled to find out they were available for our wedding date. I was in frequent communication with Kevin during the whole contracting process and he was super responsive and easy to work with. He provided us with various options including whether to have the horns and musicians for ceremony/cocktail hour. And I found the prices they offered, compared to other bands that I've seen at friends/family weddings, to be much more reasonable, even though I think the quality of their music is even better than those other bands that I've heard at friends/family weddings.

We also used musicians from Ripcord for our ceremony and cocktail hour music which was just beautiful.

And the DANCING! I don't think I've ever seen so many people on the dance floor for the whole wedding. The band was just so fun all night - played just the right mix of pop culture with some 80s and some songs that some of the older folks enjoyed dancing to.

My husband and I were so sad to say goodbye to Ripcord at the end of the night and we only hope that we can hear them play again some time.

One final word about Kevin - working with him was such a pleasure. With all of the craziness and stress that comes along with wedding planning, it was SO nice to be able to work with someone as easy and efficient as Kevin. He is just awesome! Thank you Ripcord!!!

My husband and I saw Ripcord at a friend’s wedding 2 weeks after we were engaged. We emailed them the following week and booked them the minute we finalized our venue/date. Kevin was wonderful to work with from the very beginning. He was extremely responsive to emails and was excellent at explaining the different options (i.e., ceremony/cocktail hour music, horns, etc,). Originally, we booked the 6 piece band, but ended up adding a cocktail hour guitarist and 2 horns. The horns were so worth it and I am glad we had them. The guitarist at cocktail hour was wonderful. Every guest we have talked to has asked about the band and told us how awesome they were. The dance floor was packed the entire evening. Guests that couldn’t fit were dancing off to the side!! They played such a great mix of music from awesome oldies to new pop hits. I wish I had a set list! Ripcord also did a great job on our parent dance songs which we asked them to learn. I can truly say booking Ripcord was one of the best decisions we made during the planning process. Hands down, the best wedding band in Boston! If you want your wedding to be an absolute blast, book Ripcord now!!!

My phone has not stopped ringing since the wedding about how amazing the band was!! I could not have been happier with them:) Kevin was an absolute joy to work with from the beginning to the very end. The play list they selected was out of this world. Everyone was up on the dance floor dancing the whole time! They went from slow beautiful ballads to upbeat r&b in a blink of an eye. What a truly talented bunch of musicians!! I want to plan another wedding just so I can hire them again!!! They are an absolute must have at any wedding. Do not pass this band by!!! And if you hire them, please let me know......I may crash your wedding just to hear them again:)

I simply can't say enough good things about Ripcord. We'd been to another wedding where they had played, and I'd always kept them in the back of my mind. But that was in Hartford...and we were getting married in Montreal. With five months to go before the wedding, I decided, what the heck? I'll give it a try. Kevin responded within hours of my request, saying that in fact they'd had a cancellation for the weekend in question and that they'd be willing to travel internationally. Fast forward a few months and they had learned a Springsteen tune and were hauling their equipment across the border. They were fabulously professional and autonomous; I had absolutely nothing to worry about all night (the whole French thing didn't bother them one bit!). They even navigated the cultural differences with aplomb - when the dinner service took way longer than anticipated, they strung two sets together so we could really pack the dance floor. And did we ever! If you want to throw an event that people will be talking about for years to come, book Ripcord NOW!!

This will be the easiest decision you make planning your wedding! Working as a chef catering weddings I have heard hundreds of wedding bands over the years… When it came time to plan my own wedding I heard Ripcord when we were both working a wedding at the Wang Theatre. As soon as I heard them I knew they were set apart from all the bands I have heard. From my first conversation with Kevin until the end of our reception I was always impressed with their professionalism. The lead singer learned our first dance song for us and it was perfect! Our guests were dancing all night and we are still hearing from our friends and family how much they loved our wedding band. You are going to have a thousand decisions to make planning your wedding… let this be an easy one to check off your list! Book them now!

If you want a fantastic band for your wedding look no further than Ripcord. Kevin O'Brien and his band rocked the house - my guests were on the dance floor all night and we had several unsolicited comments from our guests about how much they loved the band - and a lot of these comments came from musicians themselves. Ripcord was accommodating to a very specific reception structure that we had developed and met all our needs and requests. Ripcord truly exceeded our expectations and I'd recommend them for any event.

Ripcord was an AMAZING band! They were exceptional~from the first contact, to the performance itself. Kevin got back to us about everything very quickly, and was so easy to work with. Everything went smoothly in terms of contact throughout the process. Kevin explained things we had questions about and guided us with song recommendations. He also let us know if he thought songs would work one way or another with our reception layout. The performance was phenomenal. Everyone was dancing the whole night, and people asked me for their contact information afterwards for friends who were getting married. Even the staff were dancing, and said Ripcord was the best band they had ever heard…even after hearing hundreds of bands day after day! I recommend them hands down to anyone looking for a great band!!

Everything went smoothly in terms of contact throughout the process. Kevin explained things we had questions about and guided us with song recommendations. He also let us know if he thought songs would work one way or another with our reception layout. The performance was phenomenal. Everyone was dancing the whole night, and people asked me for their contact information afterwards for friends who were getting married. Even the staff were dancing, and said Ripcord was the best band they had ever heard…even after hearing hundreds of bands day after day! I recommend them hands down to anyone looking for a great band!! Read less

We had an amazing experience working with the Ripcords! The were very easy to work with from the beginning and always responded in a timely manner which is important when planning a wedding. They kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night and we keep hearing from our guests how much fun they had. The songs we had requested for the bride/groom and father/daughter dances were wonderful and we couldn't be happier with how everything went. Thanks for making our big day so much fun!!

Ripcord is amazing! Kevin was so hopeful throughout the entire planning process and made sure everything went perfectly the day of our wedding. Our guests can't stop talking about how incredible the band was...especially Ananda! You have to hear her sing! She is so talented and makes everyone want to stay on the dance floor the entire night. If you have just started looking for bands, look no further! Ripcord is the best!

I cannot say enough great things about Ripcord! People have been telling me non-stop since we got married about how great our band was and how much fun they had. They are everything you could hope for in a wedding band. They kept everyone dancing the entire night, were incredibly professional and always responded in a timely manner to all my questions. Kevin was so helpful through the entire process and also kept me updated on things during the reception to make sure everything that I wanted to have done during the reception got done. Honestly they were amazing and if you don't book them for your wedding you are missing out!!!

I am currently still receiving request for the Ripcord's information a month after the wedding. This band MADE the wedding. If you want the most amazing, talented, fun, crowd rousing, good looking, and overall skilled wedding band then just stop here. They are also incredibly responsive, easy to work with, and they know any and every song you could ever want. I am trying to figure out how to throw a party just so I can have them play again, they were that good.

This band was absolutely incredible. Worth every penny. They had enormous musical range and played to the crowd so well. The musicians were all top-notch, both during the reception and during the cocktail hour, where we had solo guitar music in the background. I cannot recommend them highly enough. It really made the entire night.

THe Ripcords were fantastic on our wedding day. I told them about the type of music that I was looking for and about how I wanted people on the dance floor as much as possible. They certainly delivered. The Ripcords are an incredible group of musicians and they are extraordinarily professionally. Everyone at my wedding was raving about how good they were. People really didn't leave the dance floor. I can't recommend these guys (and gal) enough. We also added a saxophone and trumpet player and they made things that much better. They really know how to set the tone of the evening and Kevin is great to deal with.

There are really no words to describe just how incredible Ripcord is. In fact, even when you see and hear them performing live, it still seems unbelievable. So all you need to know is:

1. Yes, they are undoubtedly the best wedding band anywhere.
2. Yes, they can sing anything, and it will be amazing. (Well, maybe not Chinese songs...).
3. Yes, Kevin is super easy to work with.
4. Yes, Ananda is super star diva extraordinaire.
5. Yes, even if you just let them do their thing, you will be throwing the most amazing party ever. Guaranteed.
6. If Ripcord is not available on your wedding date, change your wedding date. :)

Ripcord was absolutely amazing. They were very easy to communicate with leading up to the wedding and accomodated our requests/played 3 special songs for us even on very short notice. At the wedding, they kept the energy high and did a fantastic job MC-ing the event and keeping with our schedule. They sounded amazing and kept the dance floor packed all night. I got a ton of compliments on them. The band was so good that a few people told me they assumed the band was taking a break, and then would look up and be surprised it was actually live.

Hands down the best band for any wedding. From beginning to end the dance floor was full. Kevin was a true professional to work with. Ananda is always amazing. When I walked in and they were rehearsing the songs we requested it literally took my breath away. Ripcord can play anything and it comes out fantastic. Please don't hesitate to book them. Thank you for everything again, all of the guests that I have talked to could not stop raving about you guys.

They did Beatles, jazz, pop, and classic bar tunes. It was perfect. They even let my husband play a weezer song on the drums with them at the last minute. They really understood our personalities and made it happen.

My daughter's #1 priority for her wedding was a live band. She loves music and so it had to be just right for her. She had heard Ripcord a year before at another wedding and took us to hear them play. We signed on the spot. They provided acoustic guitar for the service, music for the cocktail hour and so by the reception everyone was ready to party. The dance floor was full the entire evening so we extended the music another hour. The energy never died down. The band was professional, accomodating and connected with all of our guests. They seemed to be enjoying the evening almost as much as our guests. Every song sounded like the original. The lead singer was amazing. The most consistent comment from our guests was "that was the most fun I've had in a long time, the band was great!" Thank you Ripcord for making our event fantastic! We highly recommend them and wish we had another event to book them for. They were so good our photographer booked them for her wedding.

If you are looking for an eclectic and talented band that will keep your wedding guests dancing all night, ripcord is the band for you. Ripcord truly helped to make our wedding night the best night of our lives. We can't rave enough about their true talent, fun personalities and good vibes! They were a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. Kevin is easy going and eager to do anything to make your day extra special. My husband and I first saw ripcord at a friends wedding. I knew then that they would sing at ours. After our big day, my photographer called me to tell me that she loved them so much that she booked them for her upcoming wedding! Ananda (female vocalist) is unreal! Her vocals are amazing and her fun personality keeps the party hopping! I give ripcord a 10/10. I can't wait to see them play again!!!!

We just had Ripcord for our wedding and cannot say enough about this band. Our guests have been telling us it was the best wedding band they've ever seen. Lots of guests chomping at the bit to get on the dance floor when they were still eating because even their dinner music was great. These are all excellent musicians who know exactly how to read the crowd. I have specific music tastes but the band played the perfect mix to keep everyone happy- pop, soul, motown, even classic rock- they can do it all, and it all worked. Their lead singer Ananda is a super talent, and also organized announcing the wedding party flawlessly. Her voice is amazing and people are still buzzing about her. Kevin was a true pro, from the first interactions with him I knew we had the right band. He was personal, professional, and overall just a really nice person to work with. All the musicians are talented and it showed. Our guests did not stop dancing at all. In fact, the band opted to play two sets straight through so as not to break the momentum. They played our requests beautifully. I can't say enough about Ripcord. They made our wedding so amazing.

One of the must haves for our wedding was a great band, as we are music junkies. My husband and I are into jam-bands, classic rock, funk, jazz--we love strong improvisations. We love dance-your-ass-off music. We desired talent, and put a foot down to fabricated pop and cheesy line dances. We also requested some obscure songs for the ceremony and reception: The Grateful Dead, Phish, and the Mezinka Dance (and old jewish tradition). Kevin O'Brien, the band leader, understood our needs and was extraordinarily accommodating. For our ceremony they played beautiful acoustic guitar, at the cocktail hour they jazz-ed it out, and for the reception, well, WOW! These guys are the real deal! They are far from a manufactured wedding band who simply reads music charts and call it a day. They feed off the crowd, play out, and have a great time. Not only did they bend to our music needs, they played across the spectrum to make sure all tastes were appeased. The Ripcords were amazing and made our wedding a true party. Three months later and people are still talking about the band. I can't tell you how many times we've heard how "phenomenal" they were! In addition to this, they're just a great group of people! They were cool, calm, and relaxed, and seemed to be having a great time themselves. Really, just awesome, talented people!

We can't say enough wonderful things about Ripcord; Kevin was so easy to work with (even though we booked very last minute)! He was very responsive to emails and questions in a friendly and professional manner. We hired Ripcord for the dinner and dancing at our wedding this past Saturday- they were absolutely amazing. Our guests kept asking how we had found 'the perfect band' for our wedding; our first dance (Just Breathe) sounded amazing, as did all of the other songs throughout the night. Our guests rushed the dance floor as soon as the formal dances were over- it was an amazing thing to see. The lines at the bathrooms and bar during the breaks the band took were long- because no one wanted to leave the dance floor while the band was playing. We hope our friends will book Ripcord for their own weddings to we can dance to their music yet again! Thanks for being a big part of making our wedding so much fun.

Absolutely loved Ripcord for our wedding! They performed during ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and all went beautifully! They are a more modern band and really kept everyone from grandpa to our flower girls (and everyone in between) on the dance floor all night long! We got the most compliments on the band than anything else and we couldn't have been happier! People are still raving about them, book and you won't be disappointed!

Ripcord played our wedding in May and we couldn’t be happier. We had an awesome all around experience with these guys. The music was great. They have two legit singers and play lots of different types of music from fast to slow. Especially good 80’s and 90’s covers. They knew when to step it up and when to hang in the background (important under-rated factor for a wedding band/DJ). The weather caused some changes to our reception at the last minute and they handled it with ease. The band was one part of the planning process we never had to worry about.

FYI - we found them basically by doing a ton a research and going to listen to a bunch of bands live. Individually and collectively Ripcord plays a lot at bars in the Boston area. Once we heard them, we signed them up right away. For anyone looking for a band I'd just go check them out. Head and shoulders above anyone else out there.

They have two legit singers and play lots of different types of music from fast to slow. Especially good 80’s and 90’s covers. They knew when to step it up and when to hang in the background (important under-rated factor for a wedding band/DJ). The weather caused some changes to our reception at the last minute and they handled it with ease. The band was one part of the planning process we never had to worry about.

FYI - we found them basically by doing a ton a research and going to listen to a bunch of bands live. Individually and collectively Ripcord plays a lot at bars in the Boston area. Once we heard them, we signed them up right away. For anyone looking for a band I'd just go check them out. Head and shoulders above anyone else out there. Read less

When I was reading reviews about Ripcord, I thought some of the reviews must be fake, as people only had great things to say about the band. After booking them for our ceremony, cocktail hour & reception, I now know they're all very honest and accurate.

Ripcord was outstanding. Right at the beginning of our reception, a friend said "I think this band is going to be good!" That was a complete understatement.

Our guests loved the band, including the most musically inclined. People danced from the beginning of dinner onwards. Ripcord made a lot of fans ( as evidenced by the packed dance floor throughout the night). Ananda & Joe rocked and I have to give special thanks to Ananda for nailing a couple songs in Spanish too. Gracias :)

It was also a pleasure coordinating things with Kevin. Kevin was incredibly accommodating throughout the planning process, even when we were, admittedly, a little annoying. At the beginning of the process when we were getting quotes from bands, we found other bands/managers to be incredibly aggressive, so we really appreciated the way he handled things. In sum, book this band now (or they might get snatched up)!

We booked Ripcord for our wedding on May 3rd. The band was nice enough to travel from Boston all the way to Philly for our big day and we couldn't have been happier. They were incredible and made our day absolutely perfect! Kevin was so responsive to all of our emails and they made sure to play all of our special requests. Our guests are still talking about the awesome music and nonstop dancing. They played such a variety of music and are all so talented (especially Ananda!). Ripcord was the best decision we made for our wedding! Thank you so much for coming all the way to Philly :)

We used Ripcord for our wedding on April 6th. They were amazing!!! Kevin was wonderful to work with in planning our song choices and how we wanted the night to flow. We had Joe play acoustic guitar during our cocktail hour, which I highly recommend. It provided something different for our guests and his voice is amazing. Amanda sang Adele's Rolling in the Deep and it sounded just like Adele. From the moment they started playing everyone was on dance floor and stayed there until the last song. Some of our guests even chanted "one last song" b/c they were so good. We keep getting complements of how awesome our band was.

She contacted them and is was so easy from there...We all love Kevin and RipCord, they are all professional and so very nice to work with. The wedding was so much fun and everyone including my husband & I never got off the dance floor...We loved them so much when my son got married this past November the first thing he said is that he would love to have RipCord at his wedding...so my husband and I contacted Kevin and we set it up. Another awesome wedding! Everyone had so much fun dancing. I would recommend RipCord to everyone!

When your college friends come up to you at the end of the night and say "that may have been the best wedding I've been to" they're not talking about the shrimp cocktail........they're talking about the band. Ripcord made the night for us. Really flexible, high energy, and some how still professional. They understood what we specifically needed and delivered. They're already booked for another friends wedding based on their performance at ours. We can't thank them enough.

This is the BEST band you will ever find.
They totally MADE our event, and no one has stopped talking about them. Seriously, ...the reception was held in a Greenhouse and the beautiful Fall night turned very cold, but no one cared because they were dancing all night.
Very professional! ...very responsive to our wishes, and very cool people. Ananda addressed a song to the bride/groom and no one sat at their table all evening. Several people tried to pay the band to stay longer! It was a very special evening, and the band was such a big part of making it amazing.
I wish we had another family wedding so we could book them again.

You should only book the Ripcords if you want your wedding to be the best event that any of your friends or family have ever been too. It can be a little awkward knowing that your band just totally blew away all the bands from all of the other weddings you have ever attended, but if you are prepared for that, the Ripcords are for you.

Kevin O'Brien was extremely responsive, flexible and professional from the first time we saw them play in Faneuil Hall to the day of our wedding. Once the party started, they had the entire crowd on the dance floor for the entire evening. They learned multiple song requests and hit each own out of the park. Phenomenal.

Ripcord is AWESOME! My husband and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a band for any event. As a wedding band they are fantastic. Ripcord provided us with a piano player for our cocktail hour and kept the music going all night. Kevin inquired about the types of music we wanted to have while guest sat for dinner and accommodated our request. Ripcord is capable of providing and playing a large range of music. We received numerous positive comments from guests, who "loved the band". Kevin is very easy to contact via phone or email. As mentioned above, we would recommend Ripcord over and over again.

Do not delay, hire this band immediately! Not having heard them perform live prior to the wedding, I was somewhat uncertain as to how things would turn out. The performance surpassed my expectations in every way. Our requests were performed flawlessly, the event was seamless and the compliments continue to flow in. The band has tremendous range, with great vocals and instrumentation. Ripcord made the night truly memorable, and Kevin is great to deal with from the business/contract end of things. A great experience in every way.

The Ripcords are awesome. It's as simple as that. They played at our wedding and everyone was dancing - old people, young people and everyone in between. Not only did they create a fun atmosphere, but the music quality and sound was fantastic! Everyone wanted to know how we found the band and truth be told, more than one of our guests said that they would buy tickets to watch them perform! We couldn't have chosen a better band and I would recommend the Ripcords to anyone looking to book a band. They were easy to communicate with and very friendly. Book them now and never look back!!

WHAT A FANTASTIC BAND!!! Ripcord was outstanding from signing our contract until the last song they played. Our dance floor was packed the whole night, and people were just having a blast. We had them learn a few songs from obscure artists and they absolutely nailed them. Kevin and Co. were a large part of the success of our big day. You know you picked the right band when months after your wedding people are still talking about the "best wedding band I have ever seen"-we've heard that from a number of guests. Wish I had an excuse to throw another party so I could have ripcord perform again!

Ripcord made our wedding a hit!!! From start to finish they were amazing and easy to work with. Kevin covered every detail and was super fast to respond to all our emails. He was so helpful when we needed suggestions on songs and quick to give his advice. Between the band's huge play list and the songs they learned to play at our reception we had all our favorites covered. Ananda was outstanding with organizing our wedding party before the introductions, she was so relaxed and comfortable and let me tell you this girl can sing! They did such a great job keeping the reception flow- from the intros, the special dances, to the speeches and cake cutting there was never awkward moments. Most importantly they were so much fun!! Our guests never left the dance floor. We could not have been happier with how in tune they were with our crowd and the atmosphere they created. Our friends and family are still commenting that Ripcord is the best band they have ever seen at a wedding. We can't thank them enough and couldn't be happier with how everything went!

As a musician for 46 years, I can say without hesitation, that if you're looking for a band for your venue, hire this band. They were so kind, so accommodating, so professional, so punctual. Their musicianship was absolutely superb....every member of the band. Their volume and mix were fantastic. Not too loud, every instrument, even the drums, at perfect volume. Their repetoire was so well rounded that everyone was dancing the entire night. I have never been to an event where so many people told me how great the band was. I wouldn't even think of listening to another band for our next event. I'll hire these guys again and again without hesitation.

Joe is so versatile he can sing anything. The entire band is amazingly talented. They exceeded expectations on all of our special song requests, even with short notice on some. We look forward to attending their gigs and hanging out with Kevin, Ananda, Joe, and the rest of the band for years to come.

I can not overstate how wonderful it was to have Ripcord as a part of my wedding. They truly made the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception complete. They are such kind individuals and such unbelievably gifted musicians; there is undoubtedly no band out there that is better! Kevin helped to organize the evening perfectly and was so very accomodating. Due to a town sound ordinance, the reception had to be shortened. The band opted out of all breaks so that we could have the most time with them possible. This was a shockingly kind gesture to say the least. My guests can not stop talking about how fantastic they were and just how much fun they had- everyone was dancing the entire night. When all the reviews are perfect 5's, it is clear that Ripcord is doing something right! Stop looking and hire them now; you will not regret the decision!

The Cords are an extraordinary band who made our wedding reception extremely fun and memorable. They rocked everyone's socks off. In fact, the first thing our friends and family always say about our wedding is, "[Something nice about the ceremony itself] AND THE BAND WAS AMAZING!" They were extremely easy to work with, are very professional, and they put on an incredible show. They played everything, from classics from Van Morrison to Marvin Gaye, to the Violent Femmes and Neil Diamond, from Michael Jackson, to Sublime, Kings of Leon and The Killers, and even "Call Me Maybe." From slow jams, to punk rock anthems, to crowd pleasing pop hits, they do it all and they do it better than the rest! I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend The Cords for anyone getting married, or just looking to get the party started right. Planning a wedding can be stressful and a pain in the neck, but hiring the Cords means the night will be an overwhelming success, no matter what. They are perfect.

Don't even bother looking for any other band, Ripcord is unbelievable. Just book them right now, you won't regret it. They are such incredibly talented musicians, and have an amazing talent for knowing exactly which song to play at what moment. Your dance floor will be packed from the moment they start to play. People are STILL taking about how amazing they were and our wedding was over a month ago. And on top of really making the party happen, at our particular wedding we had some major weather issues and our tent flooded, including the spot where their equipment was set up. For a while there I actually wasn't sure that we'd have music at all...which totally wasn't their fault and I would not have been upset at all. But somehow they just made it happen and completely rocked it out. I'm not sure anyone even noticed that anything went wrong, other than wishing they could just play longer. Not every vendor was so flexible and gracious. They totally made our reception, and from start to finish dealing with Kevin and his team was easy and fun. Seriously. Just call them. Right now.

They are such incredibly talented musicians, and have an amazing talent for knowing exactly which song to play at what moment. Your dance floor will be packed from the moment they start to play. People are STILL taking about how amazing they were and our wedding was over a month ago. And on top of really making the party happen, at our particular wedding we had some major weather issues and our tent flooded, including the spot where their equipment was set up. For a while there I actually wasn't sure that we'd have music at all...which totally wasn't their fault and I would not have been upset at all. But somehow they just made it happen and completely rocked it out. I'm not sure anyone even noticed that anything went wrong, other than wishing they could just play longer. Not every vendor was so flexible and gracious. They totally made our reception, and from start to finish dealing with Kevin and his team was easy and fun. Seriously. Just call them. Right now.

We had a wonderful experience having Ripcord play at our wedding. They were very professional, prompt and attentive leading up to the wedding. At the wedding, they were amazing! The dance floor was packed and the music was awesome. SO many people came up to me and said how great the band was and wanted to know how we found them! They made my husband and I's day all the more special! We would most definitely recommend them! So thank you!

If we were to start over, with the use of hindsight, and re-plan our wedding, the Ripcords would absolutely be our band. Rarely does a band have such an impact on a reception, but The Ripcords were the topic of conversation from guests for weeks.

After an initial conversation with the band about our music tastes and song requests for our reception, they tailored their set list to our likes and played a wide assortment of amazing tunes that kept people on the dance floor all night. From Johnny Cash to Lady Gaga to Journey, their performance, in many respects, cast a shadow on everything but the bride.

For example, four weeks after our wedding, my groomsman's brother-in-law asked for the Ripcords contact info for his wedding because he heard how great they were. Simply put, they were amazing!

This band was awesome across the board. It's been a month and a half since my wife and I got married and our friends are still talking about how great Ripcord was.

From the moment we first saw the band, to booking, to the run up to our wedding, these guys were on point. Kevin O'Brien, our contact, was a pleasure to work with – very accommodating and easy going. He offered to learn music for us and even collaborated with a friend of ours who insisted on performing during the reception.

Most importantly, the music was phenomenal. They brought big time energy and had the dance floor rockin' all night. My wife and I have different tastes in music, and our family's tastes differ even more, but everyone was ecstatic about the music. They played a great mix and quite the range.

Our wedding was amazing and Ripcord was a big part of that. It can be nerve-wracking getting a wedding band, but if you book Ripcord you can rest assured your wedding will be a really fun time. What a band! What a night!

Please book this band. Book them for your wedding, for your anniversary party, for any excuse you can find. Absolutely the number one thing that made our wedding. Amazing professionalism, energy, versatility. I can't think of a single thing I would or could change to make them better or to improve on our experience with them. They provided an accoustic guitar for our ceremony for essentially a nominal fee ($100), who was the guitarist from the band and who was also excellent (at least the little I heard while walking in!). They had the entire crowd up and dancing, accommodated a rather unusual special request (Grateful Dead) and did it wonderfully, and were just clearly enjoying their job the entire night. Their energy was palpable and made for a great party. Add to that their willingness to do anything we needed in terms of timeline, etc, and there really is no room for improvement. They deserve 6 stars and I will tell everyone I can find about them!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Book this band. Ripcord was absolutely awesome. I thought the price was a little high at first but we booked them anyways, on a friends recommendation. We were a little nervous so we went to see them play in Boston a couple of months later and we knew we made the right choice. They were even better at our wedding though. We had a full dance floor even before dinner. Kevin worked in all our requests and dedications perfectly and downloaded or owned all the songs we wanted for break music on his Ipod. Everyone that came to the wedding says congratulations(of course) and where did you find that band. Ananda has an amazing voice, but so does Joe and they balance well and keep the music going because no one gets tired. It was awesome. I could go on and on but I would risk sounding like a groupie if I don't already. Hire this band.

We hired Ripcord to perform at our 50th birthday party. They made the party. Kevin was easy to work with, flexible, we even changed venues to accomodate a larger crowd-no problem. The band played a variety of songs, I don't know how they do it so well. Guests kept coming up to me asking me who they were, where they were from, etc. Several of our guests are musicians also and were stunned by what Ripcord put out. We loved them. I would not give a party without hiring them. The dance floor was full the entire 5 hour time. Thank you so much, guys. And of course, Ananda, whose voice will melt you.

If you are considering Ripcord for your wedding, then don't wait any longer and hire them!!!

It's been over 6 months since the wedding and our guests still talk about how great they were. Their musical ability is excellent and we were all most impressed with they way they recognized the vibe of the party, kept people dancing, accommodated our every request (first dance, mother/groom dance, toasts, playlist, etc), and just basically rocked out. The band leader, Kevin, was available via phone and email and it was great that he'd been through the process before and knew all the right questions to ask and what to expect from the venue and our guests.

Truly a memorable night and zero regrets!!!

Ripcord did an amazing job at our wedding. Literally everyone I spoke to that night commented on how awesome they were. Since then I've had countless people tell me that they were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding or just the best band they had ever heard period. We had booked them a year before the wedding and I remembered they were good but was totally blown away by how fantastic they were. We cannot thank them enough! They all sounded amazing and we felt so lucky and honored to have them play at our wedding.

Additionally, Kevin was always so easy to communicate with and as someone planning a wedding from out of state I really appreciated that. Looking back over the entire wedding process, hiring Ripcord was the best decision we made.

Hendrix at Woodstock. U2 at Giant's Stadium. The Rolling Stones at Wembly. Ripcord at our wedding. In our book, they all belong in the same conversation – THAT'S HOW MUCH FUN WE HAD! These guys delivered 3+ hours of non-stop, good-vibes-all-around, sounds great, dance a lot, rock out, WE WANT MORE awesomeness. None of those fantastic things sound appealing to you? You might need a psych eval, but different strokes for different folks -- Ripcord would probably dial it in to do something that met your style. That's how they roll.

As far as our wedding experience – brunch the next morning had people sorting out whether their heads were still spinning from the alcohol, or from the most epic live version of the classic tune "Shout" that was ever witnessed in the history of mankind. Oh, you're probably thinking that we're exaggerating, right? Wrong. If we had to pick between hearing them play that song again live at our wedding vs. man inventing the wheel, we'd pick the song. Hands down.

The other part worth mentioning is that their performance was the perfect balance of getting people engaged (read: dancing) but not stealing the show so that all anybody talks about later on is the band. So there was no need for us to jump up and remind people "HEY LOOK AT US, WE JUST GOT MARRIED!!!". OK, we might have done that anyway, but it was more of a celebratory thing than a cry for attention. But we digress...

On a professional level, working with Ripcord was great. They were on top of all things scheduling, paperwork, payments, dates, song requests, anti-song requests (aka, "do not play"), etc. They're experience really showed all throughout the planning process – from timely responses to questions we had, to help sorting out what works and what doesn't for things like the first dances, timing the breaks between sets, you name it. If there was ever a version of "The Apprentice" for wedding bands, they'd probably win. Or something like that.

So to summarize: buy low, sell high, follow your dreams, and have faith in the wedding band juggernaut known as Ripcord!

Ripcord was great for our September wedding. They had the whole wedding up dancing and played a great mix of songs for all generations. They were on top of everything when we arrived to the reception, helped facilitate toasts & speeches, played the appropriate songs during dinner and after for dancing, and did a fabulous job with the two songs we specifically requested to be played (which they learned for our wedding). They had great energy that made the wedding a blast. We thought their price was extremely reasonable for the value you get (a 6-member band). Ananda has an amazing voice that everyone adores. With all due respect to other "wedding" bands, we think one of the best things about Ripcord is that they are not a typical, cheesy wedding band. You'd think you were out at a bar dancing to your favorite songs when they are playing at your wedding.

Working with Kevin O'Brien and the rest of the Ripcord group was absolutely awesome! I can't simply overstate what a great job they did and how much it mean to us on our special day!

We had a unique circumstance as we found out that Hurricane Irene was crashing our wedding weekend and received word on the Thursday prior to the Wedding weekend that our Sunday was cancelled. We went into action to move the wedding to a Saturday afternoon wedding and we expected that not only would we lose a few guests but possibly some vendors as well.

Well we had a few people missing but the Band was not one of them. I reached out to Kevin that Thursday and he coordinated with the rest of his team to make it work. Despite having a gig in Boston later that night the Ripcord were able to play our wedding in Rhode Island that afternoon. Kevin was also prepared with an itinerary of information for the day at hand so he and the band we're fully prepared for the entire day.

Not only did Ripcord play, but they totally rocked the house! Their appearance made all the difference and helped turned what could have been a disappointing weekend into an unbelievable day. I kept hearing from our guests how much they loved the band and I fully agree. This is the second wedding I've been at where Ripcord has played and it definitely won't be the last (according to my engaged friends).

In my opinion the band is one of the most important parts of the wedding. They set the vibe for the reception and get the crowd into the celebration. You simply can't go wrong with Ripcord.

Ripcord was by far the best wedding band I have ever heard. There was not one person at our wedding who did not make it a point to tell us how great this band was. First, their repertoire is huge. They play everything. This really helps in the planning process because honestly, no planning required. We had every age, lots of nationalities represented and Ripcord nailed it. I also really liked the fact that they had both male and female lead vocals and the quality was just absolutely spectacular. I wholeheartedly recommend this band and can't thank them enough for making our day even more spectacular.

These guys were fantastic! My wife and I wanted a band that was more of a rock type band and Ripcord delivered, they played everything from U2 to Katy Perry. They had people on the dance floor all night long and had our guests singing along with them. Their slow dance choices were also great. They knew how to read the crowd and played all the right songs at the right time.

Their lead singer had a wonderful voice, she nailed Katy Perry and Journey with ease and perfection. The band was tight and sounded great, I thought they were all great musicians. Kevin the band leader was an absolute star to work with. He understands that throwing a wedding is stressful enough so he made our experience most enjoyable and as stress free as possible. We had a couple special request songs that they didn't know, but they had enough time to learn them and they played them both. Those btw were 'Black Velvet Band' (irish sing-along) and Dropkick Murphys 'Shipping up to Boston. We had tons of great compliments about our wedding band even a handful of people telling us it was the best band they've heard at a wedding.

I would definitely recommend Ripcord as your wedding band if you're looking for a great rock band but who can also play a large variety of other music genres. Their price was very fair and they were very self sufficient. They also just look cool.

Hire Ripcord and you wont be disappointed.

Kevin and the crew from Ripcord were UNBELIEVABLE!!!

As music junkies, we were thorough in our vetting of Boston/Seacoast area bands and wow, did we ever get our money's worth and whole lot more out of Ripcord!!!

From start to finish, the dancefloor was FILLED. We actually could have used another 2 rows of paneling for the dancefloor, but it was no problem - we just had people dancing between the tables as well!!! Our guests are still talking about "the band". (And Ananda's vocals are off the charts!!) Even Lauren's 94 year old Grandpa was out on the floor for BBD's 'Poison'!!! They covered everything from classic rock (Stones) to indie rock (David Ford) to 'Gin & Juice' and everything in between, including some Frank, Aretha, MJ, and all of the classics.

From the planning process, to song selection, through the business transaction end of things, Kevin and the gang were the consummate professionals. We cannot recommend this group highly enough to do them justice. They brought the vibe and our guests reciprocated with a packed floor.

Many of our guests told us after that it was the best wedding that they'd been to besides their own, and we owe a lot of that to Kevin and Ripcord.

We actually could have used another 2 rows of paneling for the dancefloor, but it was no problem - we just had people dancing between the tables as well!!! Our guests are still talking about "the band". (And Ananda's vocals are off the charts!!) Even Lauren's 94 year old Grandpa was out on the floor for BBD's 'Poison'!!! They covered everything from classic rock (Stones) to indie rock (David Ford) to 'Gin & Juice' and everything in between, including some Frank, Aretha, MJ, and all of the classics.

From the planning process, to song selection, through the business transaction end of things, Kevin and the gang were the consummate professionals. We cannot recommend this group highly enough to do them justice. They brought the vibe and our guests reciprocated with a packed floor.

Many of our guests told us after that it was the best wedding that they'd been to besides their own, and we owe a lot of that to Kevin and Ripcord.

We can't praise Ripcord enough. My wife and I live in New York and decided get married in Vermont. The local bands we listened to weren't exactly what we were looking for, so we expanded our search to include the Boston area. Although we were a little apprehensive about doing everything online, we loved Ripcord's recordings and after speaking with a few of their references, were convinced we'd found the right band for our wedding. That's an understatement. From beginning to end, Ripcord was perfect. Kevin always made himself available for any questions or concerns we had. He worked with us to put together a playlist that incorporated our favoite music. The band took the time learn our first dance and my dance with my Mom, both of which were absolutely amazing. They were always professional, willing to accommodate our needs and those of the Inn. Beyond that they were friendly and energetic. They kept the dance floor full and, months later, our friends and family are still complimenting their performance. We hear "best wedding band ever" often, and we agree. Some of our guests have expressed interest in - and one actually is - hiring the band for their own upcoming wedding. Our advice: book Ripcord now!

The Ripcords performed at my wedding 3 weeks ago, and they were AMAZING!!! They had everyone dancing the entire night!! I have had SO many people saying it was the funnest wedding they've ever been to...and this band was a big, big part of it!
Besides the fact that they were amazing performers, they were so professional to work with! Our contact was Kevin O'Brien, and he was absolutely awesome throughout the planning. He always got back to me very quickly, and even my wedding venue coodinator told me what a pleasure he was to work with!
...basically what I'm saying is...book them!! They are worth the money...and they have a new groupie, me! :)

Ripcord put on a fabulous show for our annual fundraiser Ball. I have received such overwhelming positive feedback about the band—people loved their talent, their style, and their set list! They played a wonderfully eclectic and current selection of music, and everyone at the event—from the young people to the older set—absolutely enjoyed themselves. They really got everyone dancing, and even at the end of the night when the recorded music began and the event was over, people hardly seemed to want to leave! They were all so gifted, and Ananda’s voice was magical. I couldn’t have asked for a better band for our special event.

I also want to say how lovely they all were to deal with. Ours was a charity event, and our funds were modest: they were all so gracious about chipping in for a good cause, and every interaction I had with each band member was positive and warm. They are all so polite, kind, and upbeat. It was a pleasure working with them all from beginning to end.

They made our event shine. I would recommend them completely to anyone looking for an energetic and rocking band—with a heart of gold!

It's really difficult to find a band when you live 3,000 miles away from where you're getting married. We booked Ripcord because on paper we liked their variety and style but having never heard them in person we didn't know quite what to expect. But we really lucked out because they were phenomenal! Neither of our families are much for dancing but everyone was on the dance floor at our wedding and it's thanks to the great job the band did! Even several weeks after the wedding we were still getting comments about how well they played. It is remarkable to be able to cover such a variety of songs with such expertise. We were blown away by the talent of Ripcord. At our wedding venue, the bartender even said it was the best wedding band he had heard in 20 years. Thanks for making our wedding a huge success!

Six months later, our wedding guests are STILL raving about Ripcord playing at our wedding! From the beginning, the members of Ripcord were very accommodating and receptive to our wants and needs....they even learned a song for our first dance. But a week before the wedding we ended up changing our first song and the band was happy to fulfill our requests and played the song they learned as our last song of the reception. We were even able to add their jazz-quartet for our cocktail hour last minute. The price was right, the members of the band were very friendly and responsive, and of course the music rocked! The only time our guests were sitting during the reception were when they needed a quick rest from dancing so much! Thanks again Ripcord, you guys made our wedding amazing!

My friends are still talking about Ripcord, and my wedding was a year and a half ago. Not only did the band have impressive vocals, musicians and versatility; they were also incredibly helpful throughout the night, helping us improvise and change the party schedule when things fell behind (as they inevitably do). When Kevin asked at the end of the end of the night if we wanted them to play for another hour (at some extra cost), it was a no-brainer -- of course we did.

Beyond being tremendous musicians and performers, Ripcord were professional, flexible, organized, accountable…can’t say enough. Everyone raved about the band, right down to the prerecorded songs they selected for their break times. They did a great job going with the energy of the room...and they straight rocked. You'd be silly not to hire them.

Kevin and the entire band MADE our wedding. We thought we had something special when we initially found them online, but we had no idea the amount of energy, excitement and joy they would bring to our wedding day. And it was clear our guests wholeheartedly agreed by the amount of dancing that ensued that evening.

From our very first interactions and calls, Kevin was professional, responsive and flexible. He was extremely organized and and covered all the bases (timing, set-up, cocktail hour music, announcements, first dance, flow, type of music, do not play and please do play songs, etc, etc). I could not have asked for a better guide in organizing what was for us, one of the most important aspects of our celebration.

As the bride, I was not on-site for the day of set-up (getting my hair done!) but I didn't need to be. Kevin and the 'Cords worked seamlessly with our wedding coordinator to unload and set up everything in the tent prior to the guests arrival.

Onto the music - it was, simply put, incredible. Beyond their energetic riffs and amazing vocals, the 'Cords have a knack for understanding the flow of an event and judging the crowd's mood - starting off with generation friendly hits that got all the baby-boomers on the floor and building to an awesome crescendo of Whitesnake/Bryan Adams/Jackson Five that filled the dance floor to the max and took the energy level out of this world.

The only snafu of our event - which was totally unrelated to the 'Cords - was that the iPod I had rigged up with Latin music for our cocktail hour unexpectedly died. This was totally my fault, but the 'Cords swooped in and took care of business, substituting perfect cocktail hour music on their own iPod. No one (not even me!) knew the difference. Just another example of their preparedness and ability to deal with any situation.

All said, it was an incredibly special evening and the 'Cords were no small part of that. Months later, our friends are still talking about our wedding, our amazing band and how much fun they had. I could not have asked for more.

We hired the Ripcords for our wedding last July at St. Clement's Castle. The Castle had never had this band before, and after hearing them play at our wedding, they told us they were the best, most respectful and professional band they had ever had!! They asked for their information so they could add them to their recommended list. We couldn't agree more! They were extremely flexible and willing to help and give us advice on our ceremony music, and the cocktail hour was beautifully accompanied by their guitarist. They rocked the reception! Due to the timing of our speeches, cake cutting, etc., they didn't get to start their first set until 1.5 hours into the reception. Rather than stick to their break plan, they played straight through their breaks to keep the party going and everyone on the dance floor. They absolutely did not have to do this, but they took it amongst themselves to make up for the irregular schedule and play every minute they had promised us. They knew how to read the crowd and played music that everyone loved - the lead singer has a voice you will never forget!
Kevin was so great to deal with. He was always available and willing to answer questions, up until hours before the wedding. He was on top of everything and anticipated details I never even thought of. We would 100% recommend this band for any wedding. Thank you again!!

When my husband and I began to plan our wedding, there was one thing that we would not compromise on; the live band. It was very important to us to have a band that would play the tunes that we love, and keep the party going. We hired Ripcord for our wedding band, and we couldn’t be happier with their performance and professionalism. From the solo ceremony music to the cocktail hour, to the last dance at the reception, Ripcord really aimed to please. They allowed us to request a song or two so that we could customize our reception, and they put on a high caliber performance. Our guests LOVED the music, and some of my favorite pictures from the wedding are of all of us getting down on the dance floor. We are grateful that Ripcord was a part of our big day, and whole-heartedly recommend them to other couples, or anyone in need of a fabulous band!

From the day we met with Kevin we were very impressed with his professionalism and through all our e-mails it was evident that Ripcord not only enjoys what they do but they also take much pride in it. Some of our guests even look for where Ripcord is playing in the Boston area when they want a fun night out with great music. Ripcord's guitarist also provided us with ceremony and cocktail hour music which was excellent! Their catalog of songs covers a huge range of music and they will work with you to be sure you have your favorite songs and the right "soundtrack" to your night!

I have to say we had so many of our guests comment on how great the band was at the wedding! This is a high ticket item and if you don't have good music it can really put a damper on the day, so it was a huge relief that Ripcord kept the guest entertained and the dance floor packed at such an important event. Thank you Kevin for the attention to detail and being so open minded about what we were trying to achieve on our special day! I would absolutely hire Ripcord again!

I will be honest. We were a little stressed about our band choice before the wedding. Our venue was small and we knew they had never played in it, so we were concerned that they would be too loud or have difficulties with set up. In the end, our concerns were unfounded.

The band knew our concerns and they kept the music quite during dinner. When we asked the venue about their experiences with the band, they told us that they had been completely professional and were great to work with.

We used their pianist for our ceremony and he did a beautiful job. Our special request songs sounded gorgeous and the music was inviting without being obtrusive. I will be honest, I didn't notice the music during cocktail hour, but I think that is probably a good thing. In my mind, music during cocktail hour should be in the background - there without being in your face. They definitely achieved this.

During dinner they played some of the classics, like Sinatra and other quieter music. Even the strongest critique of music at weddings (my father-in-law) had nothing negative to say. He thought the volume was perfect and the mood nice. Their setup was non-obtrusive. In fact, the lights they brought in added very nicely to the ambience of the room.

For dancing, they did a pretty good job. Our only complaint was that they did not play any slow numbers to get the older people up or create any special moments between my husband and me. I'm sure if we had specifically asked, they would have played some - they accommodated other requests, including allowing my brother who is a musician to do a number with them - but as hosts, my husband and I were busy socializing. We expected the band to read the crowd and mix the music up. That being said, our guests thought the band was great and most people had a great time dancing. Several people complimented the band throughout the night and afterwards. I would definitely recommend them.

During dinner they played some of the classics, like Sinatra and other quieter music. Even the strongest critique of music at weddings (my father-in-law) had nothing negative to say. He thought the volume was perfect and the mood nice. Their setup was non-obtrusive. In fact, the lights they brought in added very nicely to the ambience of the room.

For dancing, they did a pretty good job. Our only complaint was that they did not play any slow numbers to get the older people up or create any special moments between my husband and me. I'm sure if we had specifically asked, they would have played some - they accommodated other requests, including allowing my brother who is a musician to do a number with them - but as hosts, my husband and I were busy socializing. We expected the band to read the crowd and mix the music up. That being said, our guests thought the band was great and most people had a great time dancing. Several people complimented the band throughout the night and afterwards. I would definitely recommend them. Read less

Ripcord responded with the following comments:

Hey Megan! Thank you for your kind words! We had a blast celebrating with you and your guests.

I just wanted to make a quick comment about your mention of no slow songs, as I don't feel as though that was accurate and do not want other couples to worry about that. As a general rule, we aim for one slow song per dance set, unless otherwise requested. This is simply a reaction to years of couples' preferences; most tend to want things "up". Your dinner set was scheduled a bit longer than most of the weddings we do, so we felt as though the remainder of the night would be best spent upbeat, having played such an extensive set of laid-back music. That said, we actually did throw in a couple slower numbers later on. Additionally, I asked both you and Aaron if you had any stylistic and/or specific requests throughout the night, and both of you only/repeatedly asked for "upbeat 90's music," so we accommodated. As far as reading the room, we do that all of the time... at weddings and club gigs; your wedding was no exception. We took requests from your guests throughout the night, as well as went with what was effective at getting everyone up singing and dancing.

Oh... and it was great having your brother up for that Snoop Dogg tune!

All the best!
Kevin

WORTH EVERY PENNY! My fiance and I booked the Ripcords about a year before our wedding just based on our budget and a few demos the agent sent over. Kevin was great about staying in touch over that year and sending new compliations as they were recorded. I was a little nervous when I found out they were playing 5hrs away the night before our wedding but Kevin reassured me that all would be ok. Sure enough, they arrived on time and kept the dancefloor rocking from start to finish. If they are available, book 'em!

Ripcord brought our entire wedding party together. Guests ranging in ages from 7 to 70 let loose in celebration on the dance floor. Fueled by a polyphonic group of talented musicians and singers who brought the house down, Ripcord was the perfect band for our wedding. Their wide range of genres allowed everyone to hear a favorite song to dance, sing, and drink to. In the end not only were we pleased as bride and groom, our entire wedding party enjoyed themselves. Ripcord's talent and variety made them the best wedding band we've ever heard; pretty awesome it was for our wedding!

Thanks!
Tim

Ripcord performed at our wedding and they were totally amazing!!! My wife and I totally recommend them for your big event!

We had several musicians for the rehearsal which was beautiful and went wonderfully. Cocktail hour music was excellent, but best of all--the reception was rockin!! An excellent and dynamic wedding band (adding the horns was a huge bonus and totally recommended). The band will learn several new songs for special dances, and ahead of time will take recommendations about what music you don't want them to play (although they can't guarantee songs that they will play). Totally worth the value--and very easy to work with! A+

We really enjoyed our experience with Ripcord. Kevin was fantastic throughout the process, helping coordinate everything, very flexible to make sure we got what we were looking for, and in general just on top of things. We had seen them at a previous wedding and knew we liked their work, but even still we were completely blown away the day of the wedding. We went with iPod songs for our first dance/family dances, which they had loaded up and ran without a hitch. We subsequently heard them sing one of the songs and wish we had not opted for the iPod! They also helped a few of my family members set up to play some music (a tradition in my family), allowed them to use their equipment, and even changed around their sound board for them. This meant a lot to us to help make that part of the reception a success. Finally, when they opened up the dance floor, they were fantastic. They kept the night moving, mixing song speeds perfectly, and sounding amazing. The dance floor was filled throughout the night and the two of us in particular loved dancing to their music. We could not have been happier with Ripcord! They were great!

The band was amazing. Everyone from old to young was up and dancing for our entire wedding to classic wedding songs and also newer tunes - my buddies mom who doesn't dance had to leave the table to dance and see if "that new robin thicke song was a recording." All the reviews are true; these guys deliver - amazing. Mia the lead girl vocalist crushed our first dance song, that we requested that they learn "celebrate tonight." They are easy to work with. You can give them a wish list of songs that they know from the website, and they played the majority of those songs for us.
We weren't too organized for the music in our ceremony and had some friends singing songs. We ended up hiring two of the band members and the PA system a week before the wedding. It was a beach wedding and everyone could hear the vows, music and entire ceremony. i would recommend them doing that for you if needed.
FYI: the band is bigger than they seem from the website and they split up during wedding season, so essentially its two bands. We got the girl lead vocalist who isn't on the website yet and the lead guy singer we had never met or talked to. Regardless, they were amazing and flexible on the day of to make sure we got what we had imagined.

Ripcord responded with the following comments:

Hey Karli!

Thank you for your review! It was a pleasure working with you guys during the relatively brief planning period of your event. The band said you and your guests were a blast! I'm happy to hear you guys were thoroughly impressed.

I just wanted to add a little clarity to the "FYI" aspect of your post here regarding our additional lineup. We do have the ability to operate two versions of the band in order to meet demand for weddings on popular dates, such as yours. When we only have one event on a particular date, the band provided is the one featured on our site. You guys hired us through a booking agency (versus directly), so I can only speak to how things were presented once your event was brought to my attention. That said, I personally forwarded you and your husband media (audio/video) of our available vocalists prior to you contracting the band, as I do with each and every couple (direct, or via agency). From there, the band was augmented with backing musicians who work with us on a regular basis. I realize your comment is not contrary to this; however, someone reading your review may get the inaccurate impression that you did not receive exactly what you had personally confirmed.

As manager/bandleader, I am the point of contact for all planning and communication on all of our events, regardless of who the vocalists are. This is all very standard within our industry. I coordinate every detail with our couples (and their planners/venues); if/when I am not personally performing on an event, all involved are aware of this fact prior to contracting. From there, the band is given all of the pertinent information in great detail. Incidentally, this is how the entertainment aspects of your event ran so smoothly, despite the fact you guys planned things relatively last minute, with numerous week-of changes/add-ons… some of which were pretty substantial (ie- adding on a ceremony, with live requests, the week before). Furthermore, if/when our couples would like to speak or meet with anyone beyond me for any reason, we can always accommodate. Most often, this is achieved by couples attending a public club gig or requesting a planning meeting, neither of which were possible for you as you guys did not live anywhere near Boston. During one of our discussions, I mentioned you could speak with your day-of bandleader prior to the wedding (and forwarded his phone number), but you did not feel this necessary. In all reality, couples never opt to do this, as they realize our communication over the months/years prior to their event is what ultimately yields the final plan.

Thanks again for everything, and best of luck to you and Mark!!

Sincerely,
Kevin

We hired Ripcord for our wedding and it was a great experience from the start. They were very organized and helped with the process months before the wedding. They played the songs I selected for dances and can play anything as long as you give them some time to learn the song. . They also played instrumental at the church and for the cocktail hour. The band is amazing and our guests also commented how great they were. They made the wedding fun till the last song. The transitions from dances, to cake cutting, bouquet toss etc. went smoothly. They sound amazing and the lead singers have amazing voices. I highly recommend them for a fun wedding and your guest will want an encore!!!

We had so much fun with the Cords! They played our wedding in June 2012, but worked with us far in advance to talk about songs we’d like played, even learning specific songs that we requested. Kevin made all of the organization and logistics a breeze, and the whole crew was so enthusiastic and fun that it was no wonder that our wedding was a full-blown dance party from the outset. These folks are seriously talented – they played everything we requested (from ACDC to the Smiths), as well as your more classic wedding songs, pop standards and everything in between (we were first drawn to them by the range of songs and types of music on their song list, they are truly unique in the depth and range of the music they play – and they play everything well!). Our guests loved it all, and many of them have already asked us for the Cords’ contact information for future events. Having a great band for the wedding was one of our top priorities, and we’re so fortunate that we found the Cords: great music, great people and great organization – we can’t thank them enough!

Dear Kevin, Joe, and Ripcord,

We just want to say thank you so so much for making our first dance and entire wedding so memorable.  You guys and the band were just perfect. The cocktail hour, guitar and dance play lists suited the venue so well and were exactly what we had hoped for.  

Kevin, thank you.  You were so organized from day one and made us feel like everything was under control and incredibly at ease with the music portion of the wedding planning.

Music is so important to us both and certainly to Cailin's family (as you may have heard in the speeches;) and you guys just got it so right on.

Ripcord has life long fans in the two us.  Please let us know if you ever decide to tour Asia - we'll definitely be there!

With warmest wishes,
Cailin and John
