  • 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.

  • Hands down, the highlight of our wedding was The Cords. All of our guests commented on how they thought The Cords were the best wedding band they had ever heard. Kevin, the contact for the band, was incredibly accommodating to all of our song choice requests. The Cords can play all types of music, from Lady Gaga to Frank Sinatra. I would, without a doubt, recommend The Cords to all our friends and family. They were incredible!

  • 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 - ... Read 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 re... Read more

  • 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!

  • Ripcord is very talented, professional, and fun. So many of our guests complimented "the band". They helped make our day extra special…everyone did great! 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!

  • We had the pleasure of having Ripcord perform at our wedding and they were terrific! We had a guitar solist as our ceremony music and then the full band at our reception. 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! Thanks, Rebekah and Andrew

  • Ripcord was an amazing wedding band, my guests continue to rave about them. They are super-talented and versatile in terms of set list. In terms of the bands we looked at, they were a bit expensive, but definitely worth it.

  • 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

  • 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
