Best of Boston

2020 Best Band


A good wedding band knows just when to bring the energy and when to dial it down; Ripcord blends this intuition with virtuoso musicianship, complete with Grammy Award–winning trumpeter Yaure Muniz in the lineup. They pivot effortlessly from Aretha Franklin covers to hip-hop and jazz, matching the music to the mood without missing a beat. Bonus: They’ve been known to perform original songs contributed by wedding guests, graciously welcoming revelers onstage to play alongside them for the big day.
