Rave Reviews

"The first thing that stuck out to me was their vocal harmony. The pitches were spot on and you could feel the chemistry. The repertoire also impressed me. They cover such a large era of music and do it very well. I recommend The Rippers. They're a great band and very easy to work with."

    -Dustin Roberson, Voodoo Lounge Manager, Harrah's North Kansas City


"The Rippers are among our favorites! These guys are an outstanding and highly energetic group of very talented musicians. They have an excellent following of spirited folks that've kept our rooftop venue very busy on several Saturday nights. They've played for us through rain and sweltering summer nights with complete professionalism. Their show brings an abundance of fun for all ages. Our team always looks forward to their return!"

    -Christina Livers, VP Business Development, The Grille at Park Place

"THE RIPPERS are the vanguard 60's band in the region. Strong vocal presentation and an excellent stage show set this act aside from any other in the area. Their unique style of 60's classic songs make an event people will remember."

    -Jeff Tiller, President, Omni Entertainment
