Most couples select our 8piece lineup (featuring saxophone and trumpet); however, other specific configurations are always an option.  At minimum, our standard instrumentation includes 6 musicians: female and male lead vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards/synth.  Please inquire about Ripcord's discounted 8piece all-inclusive bundle, which also includes soloists for both your ceremony and cocktail hour!
Ripcord's musicians are also adept at providing music of all styles for both ceremonies and cocktail hours.  Our couples typically opt to select an instrumental soloist or to compile a larger ensemble from the instrumentation contracted for the wedding reception (i.e. to feature a vocalist(s) and/or horns).  String sections are also available via our network of industry professionals.  Please inquire for more details, as we offer a ton of customization!

  • State of the art sound equipment & LED stage lights
  • Wireless microphone for toasts/speeches
  • DJ'd breaks which can be customized by our couples
  • Emcee'ing for the event
  • Limited Liability Insurance for our involvement with the event
