  • Booking Ryan for our wedding this past June made our wedding perfect. Despite all of the stress and confusion surrounding COVID19, Ryan was cool, calm, and collected. He adjusted as our plans did. We went from a 150 person wedding to one less than 40 people and he made it feel like our full guest list was there. From the beginning, Ryan was responsive, professional, and well organized. Not to mention that he is extremely talented!!! Ryan provided us with live instrumentals for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guests couldn’t stop remarking on the wonderful live music he provided. Ryan then transitioned into DJ mode and provided us with an excellent experience for our reception. He helped our wedding feel intimate and unique... something we will never forget. Ryan is awesome and I would recommend him over and over again!

  • This is our second time using Ryan. First for a birthday party and second for our wedding and both times he did not disappoint. Ryan is an amazing musician and a true professional. He helped guide us through our special song choices and went above and beyond to learn our songs. At both our events our guests had nothing but rave reviews. When you watch Ryan play you can tell he really loves what he does. I would 100% recommend him to play for any occasion you have.

  • Ryan and his bandmates were beyond what we could have ever hoped for. From our initial interaction through the post event euphoria, Ryan was nothing less than professional, kind, patient, fun, helpful, organized, respectful, thoughtful and an extremely talented musician and vocalist. Ryan was helpful in planning out the musical backdrop of our non-traditional 7-hour wedding day, which was divided into segments - each with a different vibe and tempo. Ryan helped us plan the perfect pre-ceremony & ceremony live duo, cocktail & reception trio, and finally a 3-hour DJ musical celebration. Ryan has an extensive live performance song list from which we could use to design our soundtrack, a testament to his musical talent and versatility. He was very accommodating to the various styles of music and arrangement we wanted. One of our favorite memories of Ryan and his bandmates are how much fun they were having while entertaining our guests. Everyone loved the band! Perhaps the greatest complime... Read more

  • Best solo musician! We absolutely loved his music! He worked with us in the weeks leading up to the wedding so we could pick music not only from his playlist but also customize the event with songs that were special to us. He took requests through the reception as well. His knowledge and love of the Beatles is impressive! I’m looking for a reason we need to hire him for another event!

  • We are so happy we chose Ryan to sing & perform and DJ at our wedding. We had a small wedding with our closest friends and family, less than 25 people (thanks COVID :)). Ryan was easy to work with throughout the entire process from contracting, to picking out songs, and hearing suggestions. Everyone at the wedding loved his performances and renditions of the songs he played. Ryan was even nice enough to learn a few songs for our “special” dances. After performing throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner, he DJ’d for the rest of the night for everyone to dance. We had a great time and can’t recommend him enough.

    Ashley, thank you for the thoughtful feedback. I'm sure couple's on Weddingwire will find it very helpful to inform them about hiring a great musician / DJ. It was both a pleasure and an honor to be a part of your wedding from the planning to the special day. And, indeed it was special. Always, wishing you and Kyle the best!

  • Ryan was amazing at our garden wedding. He went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect musical entertainment. He has a large catalog of songs that allowed us to make the experience very personalized. He even learned "September" by Earth Wind and Fire per our request. Ryan is very professional, talented and kind. Ryan is also a DJ and was able to help us have a dance party the last hour. He saved us since our venue does not allow amplified music he was able to use his system that was approved. Everyone had a great time from beginning to end. He was a key element and he knocked it out of the park. We got many compliments from our guests about Ryan. We were so happy. I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Ryan Cook is an amazing musician and played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He is incredibly welcoming and friendly, and so easy to work with throughout the process of planning the event. He is open to all kinds of music suggestions (a wide range of genres & tempos), and even enjoys the challenge of learning new songs! Ryan is an extremely talented singer and musician who is able to get the crowd dancing and set the tone for the wedding or event of your choosing. I would hands down recommend Ryan for anyone interested booking a musician for any type of event!

  • Small, intimate Backyard wedding recently (covid-19). Ryan was excellent. Great to deal with before (he and my son developed a detailed set-list.) During the event, he was simply fantastic. All our guests raved about Ryan. I very strongly recommend Ryan. If you are looking for this type of musician for your event. Stop looking. Hire Ryan. You will be happy you did.

    Thank you Allen for the thoughtful review! So glad we could celebrate the wedding and at the same time - do so in a socially distanced and safe manner

  • When we started planning our wedding, our first thought was use a DJ, just because that is the default.... We are so glad that we decided to book Ryan instead! Ryan was very professional and accommodating to all our requests and super easy to work with. His variety of music fit what we were looking for exactly! Our guests were impressed as well with his talent and how long he played without breaks. He played virtually non stop for about 4 hours before switching over to some recorded music (that was our plan). Overall we were thrilled!

    Your wedding was a special one! Thank you so much for your thoughtful remarks. All the best to you and yours, Ryan

  • Ryan came for our wedding in late June. It was a VERY hot day. Ryan played the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The ceremony and cocktail hour was perfect and all acoustic. The reception was a mix of acoustic and some recorded music at our request. Ryan did such a great job and played everything the way we wanted, and took some requests from our guests. My guests were SO IMPRESSED and gave me several compliments on how did I "find him". I thought he did an amazing job and would highly recommend him for any of my friends weddings in the future. We communicated several times before the event and he was very accommodating and understanding of all our requests!

    Thanks Michelle for the thoughtful review. It was hot but it has very little effect on me when I'm in the zone. Truly an honor to play music for you and your people. Wishing you and Jimmy the best and a bright future!

  • We hired Ryan to play live music during our ceremony and cocktail hour, and to DJ our reception. He was extremely responsive and thoughtful as we communicated our ideas with him throughout the planning process, always offering to do more legwork in order to minimize our stress levels. On the day of our wedding, he performed exactly as we had hoped. Our guests raved about his performance during our cocktail hour and he executed our wedding playlists perfectly during the reception. We could not be happier with our decision to go with Ryan for all of our wedding music needs!
