Great band with an even better sound

5 stars - Riptide are Highly Recommended
booked Riptide for their Wedding in Essex August 2022

“The guys were great from beginning to end. Turned up and just got on with set up etc without us getting involved. Played three really good sets which got everyone up and dancing throughout the night. Playlists in between also kept the party going. Their sound is amazing which is what made them stand out from looking through the other bands. Highly recommend.”

Literally the BEST band I've ever heard at a wedding!

5 stars - Riptide are Highly Recommended
booked Riptide for their Wedding in Hampshire August 2022

“Riptide were INCREDIBLE! I don't even know where to start. From the beginning, the communication with Dan and then Alex was so easy, they were up for all the requests and questions I made and nothing was too much trouble. Fast forward to the wedding day, they arrived on time, set up quickly and did a perfect version of our first dance song, Lover by Taylor Swift. Their voices and little subtle changes to the song made it feel so personal and special for us, they gave it a wonderful subtle indie vibe so it didn't feel too pop-y and they just sounded incredible I was trying not to cry throughout the whole thing. I wish I could have their version recorded to reminisce at home. They really know how to play, their voices were perfect, their set list was amazing!! So many people commenting on the diverse set list, they had something for everyone. I didn't request any specific songs (apart from the first dance) I just put my trust in their judgement and I'm so glad I did. Their 3 set...”

Beyond amazing!
