The best band around - incredible

5 stars - Riptide are Highly Recommended
booked Riptide for their Wedding in Buckinghamshire September 2021

“Riptide were absolutely brilliant at our wedding reception. They played a beautiful version of our first dance song and kept everyone dancing with a rocking set list all night, with all of our guests (aged from 3 to 87) having a great time on the dance floor. Planned and postponed on 2 occasions during the pandemic, the gents in the band were flexible, communicative and as excited as we were to finally have them play over 15 months later than planned. If we could do it all again we would, and Riptide would be at the top of our wish list.”

Absolutely smashed it. Blooming awesome band... Bo

booked Riptide for their Wedding in Hampshire September 2021

“Riptide were bloody amazing. Better than the videos. Really great performers with great voices and a pleasure to have at our village hall wedding. All of our guests commented on how good Riptide were. If you get the chance to book them, don't hesitate. A great experience throughout and really spoilt us by learning a curveball song we threw them. Thank you so much. Covid didn't stop this party! (your professionalism with sorting out the covid replacement was seamless... Thank you)”

Riptide - The BEST Wedding band ever!

5 stars - Riptide are Highly Recommended
booked Riptide for their Wedding in Essex September 2021

“We booked Riptide for our Wedding, originally in May 2020. It was one of the hardest decisions that we made for our Wedding, as was one of the most important parts of the day for us. After three postponemments, we were fortunate that Riptide were available and still able to perform on our Wedding day. Before the event, communication with the band was fantastic, and this helped us feel really comfortable and confident in them. On the day, the band were even better than we could have imagined. They are four very talented musicians and kept the dancefloor full throughout the night. We had so many of our guests compliment the band on how amazing they are - with one of our friends looking into booking them for their own Wedding. We cannot recommend Riptide enough!”

Lover of the light - first dance

booked Riptide for their Wedding in Gloucestershire September 2021

“Riptide started the night by performing our first dance, which they performed amazingly and the band learned the song specifically for our day. They then performed a series of sets across the evening which blew our guests away! Thank you for making our day extra special! 100% would recommend.”

Incredible and so talented! Thank you
