About Ripcord

Ripcord is comprised of Boston-based musicians who have played together in various cover, wedding and original bands over twelve years. This experience together enables the group to consistently deliver a perfect blend of hits from all genres; jazz standards, funk, R&B, soul, top 40, country, classic & modern rock… even that new indie tune you just heard on the radio. Ripcord's diversity is impressive; however, it'll likely be the remarkable accuracy, energy, and feel with which they perform that will blow you away.

BOOKING. The best method is to submit an inquiry form on Ripcord's website, which can be found here: https://www.ripcordmusic.com/contact

    The Best Band!

    Ripcord was recommended to us by two separate people, as we couldn't be happier that we listened to their recommendations and had them play at our wedding this past December. Prior to booking them, we went and heard them play in Boston. We were blown away with how good they were, and how they managed to turn a relatively quiet bar into one that had everyone up dancing and singing. When planning our wedding, Kevin, our main contact, helped answer any questions we had about music selection and what to expect. The band even learned our first dance song and did an amazing job. During our wedding, people didn't leave the dance floor, and commented later about how much they liked the selection of music. We even had two sets of engaged friends at the wedding ask about getting Ripcord's information so that they could look into booking them as well. Even now that the wedding is over, we still have friends and family commenting about how good Ripcord was. We couldn't be happier with having chosen them, and highly recommend them to anyone else.

    Ripcord Made Our Wedding

    Ripcord made our wedding. Our dance floor was jam packed with spinning, stomping, whooping, sweating, hollering guests, all night long. Not only do Ananda and Jeremy have exquisite voices, but the entire ensemble brings a palpable energy and groove to the stage. Ananda is a joyful and energetic performer who belts out incredible variety, from Aretha Franklin to Third Eye Blind, while somehow managing to exuberantly engage the guests dancing below. And the horns, the horns! Several of our guests remained glued in front of the horn section all night in pure adoration. We know we’re biased (we picked Ripcord, after all!), but we’re also at the stage in our lives where we’re attending about five weddings a season, and Ripcord is the best wedding band we’ve heard. Our guests repeated the same sentiment again and again the following day. All 160 of them could not stop raving about Ripcord — from grandparents, to parents, to contemporaries — every generation was knocked off their feet. From the moment Ripcord took the stage, they brought everyone on an epic high that has lasted into the days and weeks following. Thank you to band manager, Kevin, whose detailed and consistent planning and communication gave us so much confidence, and thank you to the entire Ananda and Jeremy crew! We wish we could hear you play every day!!!
