2016 Winner: Ripcord


Though they’re named after a Radiohead song, couples need not worry that Ripcord’s sounds will lean toward the sullen. The high-energy group, whose lineup varies but typically includes six musicians, tackles country, funk, R&B and pop—and they’re even up for custom arrangements. One groom who studied music wrote his own tune complete with horn sections and vocal harmonies, which the decade-old band learned and performed with panache.
