    They made the wedding the best party we could imagine!

    What a great band! They had our guests packing the dance floor all night, even before dinner was saved. Their upbeat attitude and amazing sound kept the party going. All our guests said it was the best wedding they have been to and we’re blown away by Ripcord. Thank you for making it such a special evening.

    The best wedding band out there

    The Ripcord GB2 band was the best band I have ever heard at a wedding. They had the entire party dancing for over three hours. Their renditions of our selected songs were amazing. Their range went from 70s to current pop hits, and they did everything well. Their set list was so freaking good! I talked to a few of the venue employees after the reception, and they said that Ripcord was the best band that they have ever heard. We had so many incredible compliments from guests about the band after the reception. We'd hire them again in a heartbeat.

    Book Ripcord if you want to dance your butt off!

    I had been following Ripcord since I saw them at a bar in Somerville, MA several years earlier. When I got engaged, hiring Ripcord was literally my one demand! Their singers and the band are out of this world, like, crazy good! We didn’t have a single person in their seat all night because they were so amazing. They brought so much energy and fun to their performance, no one wanted them to stop when the night was wrapping up. Do yourself a favor and book ripcord for your wedding ASAP! Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how incredible they were. Thank you to Kevin and the whole band for the most amazing night of our lives!
