  • BEYOND INCREDIBLE!!! We worked with Ripcord for our wedding last month and were absolutely blown away. Our guests STILL can not stop raving about the music and multiple friends have told us it was the best dance party they have ever experienced. Everyone was up out of their chairs and the dance floor was packed all night. They played the perfect mix of old and new music so everyone from my Grandma to my teenage cousins had a blast. They even let one of our friends get up and perform a song for us, which was the highlight of the night. HIRE THEM IMMEDIATELY!!! They will honestly make your wedding so memorable. Worth every penny and then some!

  • Hiring Ripcord was likely the best decision we made for our wedding. They are absolutely fantastic! Kevin was so easy to work with and incredibly helpful leading up to the event. He patiently answered our questions, listened to our ideas, and delivered BIG TIME on our wedding day. Ananda and Jeremy totally brought the house down and kept everyone dancing, and the other musicians were incredible. They were also very well organized and MC'd perfectly. We hoped we were getting a great band with professionals and Ripcord delivered 100%. I highly recommend them!

  • Everyone has their priorities on their preferences for weddings, but this is a decision you WILL NOT REGRET. We had both had been at weddings separately where Ripcord played and it was non-stop fun. Same held true for our own wedding. People we never thought would be on the dance floor were out having a great time. Their playlists suits everyone's taste and we ended up extended an extra half an hour because we didn't want the fun to be over. At one point we were outside and friends came to get us saying that we're missing all of the fun and felt like they were at a concert they were so good and talented. And everyone's comments since said how good the band was. They are extremely organized so once you've hired them, it's one less thing you have to worry about for your planning.

  • Do you want a band for your wedding? Book Ripcord. Sure, the details and the decorations made our wedding special but Ripcord turned our wedding up to an 11. From the moment they took the stage through the last song, they had all of our wedding guests up and dancing. Ananda and Jeremy on lead vocals were absolute powerhouses. Their voices with the combined instrumentation from the band made every single song sound amazing. We had three “live request” songs (first dance, father/daughter, mother/son) and they sounded better than the originals! I cannot rave enough about the level of professionalism and talent that Ripcord delivers. While we had little to no requests in terms of a set list, they made sure our one request, the Hava Nagila/Hora, brought down the house. They checked in with me first to see how many people would be lifted in chairs and how long we wanted it to go for. From there, they took the reins and we exploded onto the dance floor. We keep referring to our ... Read more

  • I first saw Ripcord at a friend's wedding and they were amazing, so when I was planning my wedding I looked them up. Kevin, the band manager, was incredibly kind and helpful on the phone, and when I asked him about what his favorite part of a wedding was, he gushed for about 10 minutes about how amazing it is to be a part of a couple's special day. That sincerity and passion came through in every single aspect of working with Ripcord. Not only did Kevin remember my friend's wedding immediately, he asked if they'd be at our wedding, and when he found they would be, he gave us a discount just because they were excited to get to celebrate with them again. He also helped make sure we'd get the same lineup I'd seen at my friend's wedding (Ananda & Jeremy), and when I threw him a curve ball of asking if the band would learn an original song that I wrote to surprise my husband, he was not only accommodating, he was super excited. SPEAKING of the Ananda and Jeremy lineup...holy smokes. They... Read more

  • Our band was by far one of the top reasons we had such an amazing wedding. We picked Monica and Jason and they absolutely tore the house down. Kevin was extremely responsive from start to finish and always answered my endless questions with patience and detail. The band was such a big hit at our wedding that toward the end of the night, everyone was trying to jam up as close as they could get to see them and sing along. At one point, it was almost like we were at a concert with everyone getting on the dance floor and cheering for them! Monica even came onto the dance floor a few times too. They were really engaging with the crowd. We got married three months ago and we still have people mentioning how good our band was to this day. So good in fact, that one of our friends is using Ripcord for their wedding now!

  • If you want a band that will fit your every need, be nothing but professional, pleasant, and accommodating, and have every one at your wedding asking how far they will travel and where on earth you found them, then this is the band for you! Ripcord was the first vendor we book for our September 2 wedding, over a year in advance, and we could not have been happier. Every single guest was up and dancing, ages 19 to 91! And everyone the next day said that they were the best band they had heard, and that they had sore feet from dancing so long. You don't need to have second thoughts around this one! You cannot make a mistake choosing this band!

  • Truly AMAZING!!! Ripcord was everything we could have hoped for and more. Jeremy and Ananda not only sounded incredible but they had fun with the crowd and really had great/ fun personalities. Working with Kevin was great and he even surprised me with a song I had mentioned I loved (and this was last minute so I truly was not expecting for them to learn how to play it!). Honestly, they are THE best band I have ever heard at a wedding or really any event. All of our guests keep messaging me to tell me how much they loved Ripcord. Seriously, look no further--this is THE best band around :)

  • Ripcord is very talented band! Our guests raved about their performance at our wedding! They were absolutely AMAZING! The only reason I am giving them a 4 stars instead of a 5 is due to the communication with the band manager leading up to the wedding. For the cost of the band, I expect better communication.

  • Ripcord was the first vendor that we hired for our wedding in VT this past June, and they did not disappoint! We knew that the band would set the tone for the evening, and we were dedicated to finding a group that would keep our guests on the dance floor all night. As soon as we heard Ripcord, we knew that they were the group we wanted to hire. They have a clean, professional sound, without any of the potential cheesiness that might come with a traditional wedding band. We had the Mia and Joe line-up, and they have an absolutely incredible range. From Journey to Nicki Minaj to Etta James - there doesn't seem to be a genre that they can't cover. Our dance-floor was packed all night, so much so that we needed to move some tables to make more space. Even my parents, who usually would never be found on the dance floor, were drawn out! When there was a chance of rain in the forecast, they agreed last-minute to come early to set up so that they would not interfere with the cocktail hour rai... Read more

  • We still cannot get over how incredible Ripcord (and Jeremy and Ananda, especially) were at our wedding. We are both musicians and singers and were extremely particular about wedding bands... and even after we booked Ripcord, we were nervous because you never really know what you'll get live. But oh my goodness—they were beyond anything we could have imagined! They kept the party going all night, did a fantastic job MCing the reception, and sounded AMAZING. They are 100% worth it!
