  • We highly recommend Ripcord!!! All of our guests have been raving about how amazing they were and that they were the best band they've heard! Kevin was very responsive and awesome to work with. He is very detail oriented and everything worked out better than we could have imagined. We decided to have instrumental music during cocktail hour and we're so happy we did! It was perfect for the setting and they sounded amazing. During the reception they had the dance floor filled the whole time with guests of all ages, even my 88 year old uncle was out there! They played such a great variety and adhered to our requests with no problem! We could not be more thrilled we chose Ripcord to play at our wedding!!

  • Ripcord played at our NYE wedding and were AMAZING. They had everyone on the dance floor all night! We couldn't be more pleased with the music choices they played. We also had soloists for the ceremony and cocktail hour and the positive feedback from our guests was so wonderful. I would recommend Ripcord to anyone and everything looking to book their band!

  • Hands down best wedding band ever! Ripcord was the highlight of my New Years Eve wedding in the mountains of Vermont. From the very beginning of our conversations, Kevin was extremely professional, responsive and helpful and he remained my go-to resource for all wedding music related questions throughout the planning process. We had the Ananda and Jeremy duo for vocalists and they rocked the HOUSE - nonstop dancing, amazing set list, great interaction with the 'crowd' and amazing renditions of our favorite dance songs. Dancing and music was the top priority for our wedding and Ripcord was by far the best wedding decision we made!

  • My wife and I booked Ripcord for our wedding in October of 2016 and it was 100% the best decision we made during the planning process. As a touring musician myself, I knew I couldn't have a DJ and I am overly critical when it comes to live music. We went through what felt like hundreds of bands and finally found ripcord while out in Boston one night. We booked them that night and didn't even ask for a price up front, it honestly didn't matter what they said (mind you, we were working on a strict budget). Kevin's professionalism and promptness made him a delight to work with. I don't know what they charge now, but you could triple it and I would still find a way to make Ripcord be the band for your wedding. They're appropriately interactive and their set consists of songs to appeal to every guest at your wedding. I really can't say enough about ripcord. If there's one thing that makes a good wedding, it's incredible live music and If you want to have a wedding to remember and to... Read more

  • Best wedding decision we made!! Because of our time frame we booked Ripcord having only read online reviews but we were absolutely blown away when we heard them live! Kevin was so easy to work with while planning our wedding and always easy to reach and quick to answer any questions we had. The whole band did all the thinking for me during our reception, guiding the night along and leaving me to simply enjoy. What a night it was...as soon as the music started the dance floor was FULL. When I say full I mean the floor was quite literally shaking and only my 92 year old grandmother was in her seat. Everyone keeps telling us how much fun our wedding was and how much they loved our band! If you want an awesome wedding you NEED Ripcord, no brainer.

  • Let me start off with the fact no one could tear me away from the dance floor on my wedding day! We booked the Ananda/Jeremy duo and they were absolutely amazing. Their chemistry between each other and vibe with the crowd was the best I have ever witnessed at a wedding. My primary goal was to have a dance party where everyone would be engaged and having fun. I have been told by numerous people that our wedding was the best they have been to. I can assure you one of the main reasons is because we had Ripcord as our band. Ananda, Jeremy, and Kevin (and the rest of the band) are incredibly talented and phenomenal musicians. Our dance floor was packed all night long and we sang and danced our hearts out. At the end of the night, my voice was raspy and I had salty cheeks from all the dancing. The energy was incredible, the music selection was outstanding, and their professionalism was insurmountable. Major kudos goes out to Kevin O’Brien, who facilitated all communication and wa... Read more

  • Ripcord played our wedding in August 2016, and they were absolutely INCREDIBLE. Booking them to play our wedding was the best decision we could have made. From the very start, working with Kevin to get all of the details arranged was quick and easy, and he was super responsive with his emails and calls. On the day of, we also hired Kevin to bring a PA system (we had an outdoor wedding) to make sure that we could amplify our procession music, our readers, and our live music during the ceremony. Given that our processional music was something unique to us (not Here comes the Bride, etc), Kevin even brought along similar music to play as “mood music” before the ceremony started. As part of their package, the band performed 3 “guaranteed” songs that we could request, which generally are used for the formal dances. The band learned our first dance song, as well as a song that my wife’s father had written to play as a surprise during her dance with him. You can also give Kev... Read more

  • Ripcord is the best. We had the Ananda / Jeremy lineup and they were amazing. Gave the band specific instructions on how to modify for our first dance song since it was choreographed, and they executed it perfectly. Parent dances just as we asked. Keyboardist also played live ceremony music and was accommodating with the weather situation. The rest of the night was awesome. Tons of musical talent, good chemistry, song selection, and energy. Dance party all night and got lots of compliments on the band and people asking for their name.

  • Every year our foundation hosts an annual dinner to celebrate the leaders in the communities of Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan. This year we wanted to change it up from a formal sit down dinner to a more party atmosphere. Ripcord was recommended by a colleague who attended a wedding they played at. WOW! AMAZING! FUN! are the words all of our guests used to describe the night! The music kept everybody on the dance floor ALL night. By the end of the night NOBODY wanted to leave and if it wasn't for security shutting the music down, we would have stayed all night. Ananda, Jeremy, Kevin, Erika, Brandon, Ryan ALL great musicians and easy to work with! We WILL be using them again and recommend them for any occasion! Thank you RIPCORD for making our event memorable :)

  • Here's my tip, look no further and book Ripcord- you will not be sorry I promise you. Ripcord provided the music for my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, and to say they were amazing is an understatement. First of all, Kevin O'Brien was one of the best communicators through out my whole wedding planning process which was a year. He always responded quickly, with answers to everything. This band is worth every penny, we gave them our first dance and parent songs, and trusted them with the rest, and I am so glad we did. Our dance floor was literally full all night long and we had almost 200 guests at our wedding. Ananda, Erika and Joes voices are flawless. If you have any room in your budget to splurge for a 3rd vocalist, do it, it will just make your night that more memorable. It is over a month later and we are still receiving compliments about how fun and great the band was at our wedding. We told Kevin that the goal of our wedding was a fun night for our friends where e... Read more

Guests came to us to say how incredible they were. Worth every penny! All of their excellent reviews are well deserved! Thank you from some very pleased parents.

  • Amazing. Incredible. Ripcord was everything we could have wanted from a wedding band. They were easy to work with and delivered a performance that we won’t soon forget. A common theme from our night was friends and family telling us how much they loved the band. And for good reason! Their musical range was epic and their energy kept the party dancing throughout the night. One of the highlights was their rendition of L’Chaim (which we requested) for the father-daughter dance. You cannot go wrong with Ripcord and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band.

  • I can't say enough incredible things about these musicians. The talent is unreal, but they also work hard to entertain and interact with the crowd. Erika and Ryan could read our crowd and knew when to play what music at what point in the evening. They got people up and dancing and everyone was blown away by them! We are still getting comments about how awesome our band was. They made the night - kept the energy up and ensured that people literally danced the night away. They were extremely professional and also just seemed like really awesome people! You want to have good people who want to be there with you and that's what it felt like. Nothing compares to the energy that live music brings to an event, and I could not have asked for a more perfect band to have at my wedding!
