About
You've come to the right place for music and entertainment! After all, hiring RuffWater SAVES YOU MONEY while providing you with the best in music and entertainment available anywhere! I say music AND entertainment because the RuffWater show is high energy and VERY interactive. So even the guests who choose not to dance will be constantly entertained by what's going on both on the stage and the dance floor!

RuffWater is a corporate band made up of professional musicians; not a weekend garage band. Most of our business is made up of private or corporate events just like yours and we've been in business for over 15 years. That's a LOT of gigs! So, being in the entertainment business, we know within a few short discussions with you just what you want in music and just how you want the event to go. That takes all the guesswork out of planning the entertainment!

So how do we save you money? In most circumstances, in addition to providing our own stage set up, we can provide all the sound and lighting needed AND provide DJ services on the breaks, if needed. We can also emcee your event. Those services alone can save you over $1,500 off the total cost of your event. That's one way hiring RuffWater saves you money!

Although we could place a bid to play your event that is as high as your budget allows, we usually don't. That's because RuffWater only bids what we believe it will actually cost us to provide you with the best show anywhere. After all, we want to make your event the absolute best it can be at a price you can afford. That's another way hiring RuffWater saves you money!

Dance music is what we do. Whether it's classic rock, blues rock, country rock, old skool R&B, or any other style of dance music, RuffWater can keep your guests up and dancing throughout the entire event. Your guests will LOVE dancing to Motown from the 1950s and '60s. Baby boomers will love the '70s and '80s. GenXers will love songs from the '90s, and Millenials will absolutely love dancing to the top songs from each decade as performed by the hottest acts in rock and roll! On the breaks we provide upbeat dance music in various genres to keep your guests on the dance floor. So, as you can see, RuffWater does it ALL!

If you have any issue with our bid, just let us know. You can contact us through the email or phone number included in our bid or you can ask questions through Gigmasters. Either way, we will contact you back quickly. I'm sure that we can work something out that will fit your budget and exceed your expectations! We look forward to hearing back from you soon!

My Husband and I were extremely pleased with the band. The band members were friendly, fun and very talented. We didn't give them a "playlist" to go by and they did a great job playing a variety of songs everyone could dance to. We danced ALL night and had a blast. We added a saxophone player and he blew us away!! Super talented. Can't go wrong with this band!!

The band was that "one thing" for my wedding that I wanted to be perfect. Out of all of the vendors I worked with, The Ruffwater Band was THE best by far. They are responsive, accommodating and talented! The music for our wedding didn't start until 7pm, but these guys came at 3pm so they could set up and be out of the way prior to the ceremony- and at no additional cost! I was floored that they were willing to do that and was so grateful to feel we were taken care of given the multitude of other details we had to be worry about. One of my bridesmaids couldn't get enough of them and they even let her come up and sing along to one of the songs. THESE GUYS ROCK!!

We couldn't have picked a better band for our wedding reception! Ruffwater was easy to work with before and even better when they got on the stage. The songs they played got everyone up and dancing, including my 82 year old grandparents, and they never sat down. They even got my dad and step mom dancing, and they had never danced together before. If you have the opportunity, book Ruffwater! You won't regret it!

Ruffwater was great!! They were the perfect touch for the day. They played everything we wanted to hear and then some. I loved working with Mike while planning. If I needed something he was always curteous and prompt to respond. Our guests loved Ruffwater! Guests told me, "I can't believe you have Ruffwater!" Friends that were there plan to use Ruffwater as well. They can make any event more fun & can play for any crowd. I also appreciate that they kept us on scheudule, used our event intinerary to keep the wedding flowing and fun. As the mother of the bride that meant the world to me. I hope I can have them again at a future event! We had a fabulous day!

We LOVE this talented group. Even the most reluctant among us was up dancing within a short period of time. They are so professional, yet so much fun, and so wiling to become a part of the event! We have booked Ruffwater for two years in a row and will continue to do so as long as they play together! They can play anything and everyone enjoys every minute of it. I almost hesitate to say "RUSH to book Ruff Water" because I don't want them not to have time for us...but, if you want the best band out there to entertain you, better hurry!
