About Us

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.

This diverse band won WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Award every year from 2012 to 2018. They also were named Boston’s Best Wedding Band in 2016 by the Improper Bostonian. Every time they perform they exude energy, emotion and accuracy.

  • 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.
