Anniversary PartyReviewed on July 7, 2023From Alexandria, VA

Riptide was a delight to work with. Their flexibility (due to terrible weather) was extremely professional. I would definitely hire them again. Mohra Gavankar

Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 30, 2022From Curtis Bay, MD

Riptide is professional, start to finish-great entertainers and businessmen. They communicate well, ask the right questions, confirm details, and accommodated requests. They arrived early and prepared and put on a great show without drowning out our nearby vendor booths. Their diverse list was perfect for our contractor customers. Riptide is musically talented with strong vocals. Our 500+ attendees were very impressed. As organizer, I came off looking good for hiring them. (Thanks, guys!) Riptide was part of my team that day. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat. I confidently and highly recommend Riptide for an event of any size. I promise you won't be disappointed


Thank you very much for the kind words. Riptide thoroughly enjoyed working with you and performing at your outstanding event, and we would be honored to work with you anytime in the future.

FundraiserReviewed on September 26, 2018From Washington, DC

Riptide was THE best addition to the charity gala we held, the Allison Gala. They were lively, got the crowd going with dance and engagement. They were very professional, responsive with communication and helped out with other aspects of the event with announcements, etc. Post gala almost eery attendee commented on how much they enjoyed the band and want them to come back next year! Very satisfied!


This event was well organized and Riptide had fun with the people that attended. We hope they raised a lot of money for the foundation on Allison's behalf.
