“Great Evening had by all!”

Perfect wedding band

5 stars - The Rips are Highly Recommended
booked The Rips for their Wedding in Staffordshire September 2023

“The Rips were absolutely fantastic. We couldn't have hoped for a better band for our wedding. I think the fact that the dance floor was full from the minute they took the stage speaks for itself. A few people were even up dancing during the sound check. They played a great mix of the classics and more modern stuff, and their cover of our first dance song was brilliant. Thanks again guys for a great night, and for honouring the booking even after having to postpone due to covid etc. We would 100% recommend you to anyone planning a wedding. People are still texting us saying how great the band were.”
