We had the BEST experience with Ripcord! Ananda and Jeremy were our singers, and they were so fun and talented. We worked with Kevin throughout our planning process, and he was tremendously professional, responsive, and flexible. Our guests were raving about the band throughout our wedding - and still now every time we talk about the day! We cannot recommend them highly enough!Sent on 07/25/2019

Amazing Wedding Band!
As music lovers we were adamant about having a live band at our wedding and decided on Ripcord due to their extensive group of musicians and quality of their vocalists. Kevin and the rest of the Ripcord team were an absolute pleasure to work with in understanding our tastes, deciding on acoustic music for the ceremony, learning songs for the dances and creating a killer playlist for the reception. I lost count of how many people complimented the band's performance but it was absolutely a highlight of the day and I never wanted them to stop playing!Sent on 07/27/2019

These guys rock
Ripcord did a fabulous job handling the entertainment side of my wedding this past June. Kevin was great on the communications side - really responsive and on the ball. Also really flexible in terms of helping me put together my vision. We worked out a jazz introduction to the evening, followed by a good playlist while the band had dinner, followed by the awesome main band. I play keyboard, and he was totally open to the idea of my sitting in with the band or them sitting in on a song that I was hoping to write for the event (though never ultimately got around to...)Sent on 07/23/2019
On top of that, Monica & Co. were outstanding. My friends and I see a lot of live music, and everyone agreed that the Ripcord crew was top notch. The band read the crowd well, saw that funk music was working well, and threw in a back-to-back Prince combo punch at one point that had the dance floor going bananas. Monica was an excellent MC, she totally picked up on the casual, personal vibe that we were trying to create and worked right along with that. Lastly, the male vocalist at a climax in the night invited me to come up on stage and sing a call and response with him into the mic. I'm not a good singer at all, but something about him had me belting out these notes. My dad asked my mom if she'd ever heard me sing that well, to which she responded "Nope, not even close." So kudos to the band for helping me discover I have a voice hidden somewhere deep inside.
Overall, I really couldn't have hoped for a better musical experience for my wedding... totally exceeded expectations! Lastly, I had a few friends asking for their contact info the next day, so hopefully I'll get to see them again.
Ripcord has been at Sky meadow many times! They are a great band, you will not be disappointed..
Ripcord has to be the best band we have worked with at a wedding ever! They keep everyone on their feet, young and old, dancing and singing. Their personality is contagious, and it shows through their music. From the 70s to Black Eyed Peas, they know how to keep a crowd moving!
