Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on February 7, 2024From San Diego, CA

Amazing! Good Cop Bad Cop rocked my 28th birthday party in San Diego! They kept everyone entertained and dancing all night long. Their connection with the crowd was incredible, and they played the perfect songs to match our energy. If you want a band that knows how to make your event unforgettable, go with Good Cop Bad Cop! Your guests will thank you!


Kyler produces events, so he was very organized and disciplined producing his own party; as such, he was a pleasure- a pro to work with. Very nice people at his big house & yard b'day party on Mission Bay, San Diego. They hired us for two additional hours; it became a 5 hour gig. Thank you, Kyler.

Birthday Party (Kids)Reviewed on January 8, 2024From Manhattan Beach, CA

My son had the best 3rd birthday with a great band! GCBC were very easy to work with and quick to respond to any email/text. They accommodated all song requests. Our toddler loves music and they made his day! All the guests had a fantastic time. Best 3rd birthday ever!


Our first event of 2024, this was a double 3rd Birthday Party outdoors at Manhattan Beach Country Club- a fun party for a bunch of young parents and their young kids (some even unborn). Roxana gave us 24 of 25 stars. If this were school, that would be grade of 96%, a "high A." That said, for "overall satisfaction," she gave us 5 (of 5) stars; so, it appears she was, say, maximally satisfied, overall. Ken / Good Cop Bad Cop

Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 3, 2023From Santa Barbara, CA

We loved having Good Cop Bad Cop play at our corporate holiday party! They were super accommodating in working with our theme, very organized, and professional. One of my partners said, "If I closed my eyes, I thought I was at a Pearl Jam concert!" Would love to have them again. Thank you, Good Cop Bad Cop!


This was a holiday party for, of all things, an organization of anesthesiologists. About to begin our performance, I greeted them saying: "I understand you're a group of anesthesiologists. What I'd like to know is: Did you bring any?" Very nice folks to work with and play for. Very friendly and hospitable, and they tipped (always appreciated). We hope to meet up with any or all of them again. The venue, El Paseo Restaurant, Santa Barbara, is a very beautiful, mission-style building built in the 1800s!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on November 19, 2023From Wildomar, CA

The band was amazing. The party was 80s theme and they nailed it! Everyone was impressed


As this was an '80s party, Good Cop Bad Cop played all '80s hits. However, GCBC has 14+ hours of hits from the past 7 decades- great variety for teens to seniors: Give us a group of guests/audience- We've got a great mix of songs for them (which, in part, is why we have a 5 star rating and Best of Awards last 8 (soon to be 9) years in a row). We thank Kayla, husband Mitch and mother-in-law / mother, Kathy for their hospitality and tip, and for the 5 star review. Nice family and friends, we hope to meet up again sometime.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on October 22, 2023From Lakewood, CA

These guys were awesome! Had us chanting GCBC by the end of the night. We will definitely be hiring them again in the future our guests had the best time and lots of dancing and singing a long. They stayed longer as a last minute request and were so easy to work with. They truly made the party! Thank you guys this is a memory that will last forever for my wife’s 40th birthday.

Club EventReviewed on August 8, 2023From Huntington Beach, CA

Very professional, great sound, and variety of music that was performed. A great band we will bring back for future performances!


Hot Rods & Handguns Social club is a beautiful and impressive place, so much so, I'm including their website URL here: In addition, Albert, Assistant Manager of Operations, and staff were professional- a pleasure to work with. Patrons were great too. Albert's given us a 5 star review (thanks, Albert). We do hope to perform at Hot Rods & Handguns again.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 6, 2023From Redondo Beach, CA

They’ll make you look good for hiring them! Every single person at my husband’s rock and roll themed birthday bash loved this band and couldn’t stop raving about them! Awesome music, awesome vibe and super responsive.


Jasmine, Good Cop Bad Cop thanks you for having us play for Brian's 38th Birthday Party. Thanks for your hospitality and tip. Thanks for being really excellent to work with. And, thanks for the great review!

Review by Sherri P.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 29, 2023From San Pedro, CA

From my initial contact with Ken from Good Cop Bad Cop I knew that this was going to be a good experience. Ken was very professional and pleasant in his dealings with me. I hired both the duo and the band to play for our party. Both the duo and band were outstanding in their performances. Most, if not all of our guests commented on how much they were enjoying the music! One thing I especially liked was that Good Cop Bad Cop had many videos posted on their website/YouTube so that I could review their performances before hiring them. Also, I was able to select the songs that I wanted performed. Their song list is extensive. I highly recommend the duo and the band!


Good Cop Bad Cop thanks Sherri for her 5 star review, for having us play her husband's 60th Birthday and for her hospitality and tip. And, it was a pleasant surprise when she and husband showed up to see us three weeks later when we played City of Lomita Founders Day, Lomita City Hall.

FundraiserReviewed on April 23, 2023From Valencia, CA

This is our 2nd time hiring Good Cop Bad Cop. The first time was for my daughter’s medical school graduation, the 2nd time was for a Black tie Fundraiser. Both times they were stellar! They are very talented, their song list is vast! My husband and I are already thinking about hiring Good Cop Bad Cop for our daughter’s wedding reception. Seriously, if you’re looking for a band, look no further. LOOK NO FURTHER.


Yes, this was the second time Jackie hired Good Cop Bad Cop. First, she hired duo for daughter's Medical School Graduation Party. Now, she hired whole band for a Black tie Community Fundraiser put on by Filipino-American Association of Santa Clarity Valley, Grand Ballroom, Hyatt-Regency Valencia. The Mayor of Santa Clarita and other dignitaries attended. And, the big, pleasant surprise was Jackie became President of the "Fil-Am" Santa Clarity Chapter, she was handed gavel during event. We thank Jackie for her repeat business; for being great to work with as event details came together, for her hospitality, tip and for her second gratifying review.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on April 11, 2023From San Diego, CA

If you are looking for an amazing band to play your event, then Good Cop Bad Cop is the only choice. They're incredibly talented. Not only were they impressive performers, but they were also extremely professional and communicative throughout the planning process. They went above and beyond to make sure our event was a success & their attention to detail did not go unnoticed. The day of the event, they arrived early, set up quickly, & put on an incredible show. Their musicianship is top-notch, & they had the entire audience engaged & entertained throughout the night. I would hire them again in a heartbeat & cannot thank them enough for making our event unforgettable!


Well, if you're looking for amazing clients, hook up with Alex A. We thank Alex for being great to work with, and we thank his extended family for their hospitality, tip- and the beautiful singing bowls gifts. This was a "Life Celebration" for Alex's girlfriend's father, Patrick, who by all sincere accounts was a very special guy. These folks hired us for an additional hour ("overtime") and we're very gratified they were pleased with us for such significant event in their lives.

After having the pleasure of listening to these guys play we are planning on finding another occasion to have a party so we can get them back! Good Cop Bad Cop was awesome! I can’t wait to see them play again! Thanks again!

Flawless performance and amazing repertoire! Everybody in the audience was asking where we found them! Super professional and great communication. We highly recommend them.

WeddingReviewed on October 15, 2022From Santa Barbara, CA

The band was better than we could have ever expected! We had them for our wedding. We had the Duo for our ceremony and cocktail hour and the band for the rest of the reception. Many of our guests complimented them while they were playing and after as well. It was our first time booking and attending a wedding with a band and it went so well! We were so happy! They created a great atmosphere where everyone was dancing all night long. Ken was easy to work with and to communicate with. We were able to have Good Cop Bad Cop learn 3 new songs to personalize our wedding and they sounded amazing. So thankful they were able to accommodate us.


It was a lovely wedding, nice folks, nice venue- Carousel House with a park, Santa Barbara. We thank Sarah & Daniel for having Good Cop Bad Cop (both duo and band) play for their most special day. It was our pleasure. We're gratified they appreciated us, and we appreciate the 5 star review.

Review by Kim N.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 21, 2022From Santa Monica, CA

I simply cannot describe in 675 characters how enthusiastic I feel about Good Cop Bad Cop. I had never hired live musicians before and was a bit nervous. Due to cost constraints, we hired the duo, not the whole band. Ken and Mike BROUGHT IT! They are so talented, they knew exactly what to play to get and keep everyone on the dance floor, they went with the flow when we needed to interrupt for "happy birthday" and speeches, they were timely, professional, and communicated well. Oh, and did I mention their talent? I recommend them highly. It was money well spent. They made the party FUN.


These folks -- the hosts, their guests, even the caterers and I'll include Tux, the cat -- were very hospitable, very friendly. Yup, these folks dance a lot, as Kim wrote. I think we can say a good time was had by all, even us. It's always gratifying receiving such a review. We're glad we made them happy- "money well spent," they say. Thanks, Kim.

Review by Ashton L.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 19, 2022From San Diego, CA

I honestly do not have enough space to write about how impressed my whole party was with the amazing performance from Good Cop Bad Cop. Kenny was very professional and made the whole process super easy, especially for someone that has never booked a band before. The overall sound quality and vocal performance was top notch. I would MORE than highly recommend this band for any of your events! They were incredible!


What one can't learn from this review is how awesome the event location was: The Party was on a 139 ft yacht, a near-exact replica of The America, the historic nineteenth century schooner. We sailed on San Diego Bay, four hours. We thank Ashton and the crew of The America for their excellent assistance with the logistics associated with this above-average-complexity gig. We thank Ashton for her hospitality and tip, for her excellent review- and for choosing Good Cop Bad Cop, the four-piece band.

Graduation PartyReviewed on June 6, 2022From Valencia, CA

Good Cop Bad Cop was amazing! Everyone loved the music and couldn’t stop talking about how great they were. It’s amazing how good these two men are! Will definitely hire them again. If you’re having a party don’t hesitate to hire Good Cop Bad Cop. They’ll make your evening a success!


We appreciate the review, Jackie's hospitality and tip- We appreciate the job. Thank you, Jackie.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on March 28, 2022From Huntington Beach, CA

Wow! We are so impressed. They killed it! Everyone had an amazing time with Good Cop Bad Cop as the band. What an awesome band, they are super professional, punctual, and made our party one to remember! Music was on point! Thanks guys! We will definitely use you again!


Fun party, really nice hosts and guests, nice house and yard. Our setup was actually between a chicken coop with two hens, two roosters, and a turtle pit with four turtles. The animals seemed to enjoy the music. We thank Sara for her 5 Star review. Did you know: Bands can't delete, nor edit reviews on The Bash.

Community EventReviewed on March 7, 2022From Coalinga, CA

All I had to go off of this Duo was a couple of videos but from those I absolutely loved their presence and knew I at least wanted to try and bring them to our Mardi Gras event. I must say they not only met but far exceeded my expectations. True professionals from start to finish. Came in early, mingled with the community, became a part of the event and not just a "stage performer" in it. I would recommend them to anyone and we will absolutely be requesting their talents again- Good Cop Bad Cop. ALL GOOD. Not a single bad thing to say about them. Honor to have them visit our community. Til Next Time! Bottoms Up!


Scott, Coalinga Chamber of Commerce, hired us. Proud of his town, everything he told us about Coalinga is true- a lovely, small central valley town with down-to-earth, friendly, hospitable people, big sky and mountain views- They even had a classic gazebo in the town plaza. Scott was great to work with throughout. Scott rehired duo to headline two nights, Coalinga Memorial Weekend Festival, May 27 $ 28, 2022.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on February 22, 2022From Redondo Beach, CA

Fantastic! What a talented duo! They made my husband's birthday party the event of the season at Port Royal Yacht Club. We highly recommend booking this band for your next event. We will be booking them again soon!


We thank Ruth- 5 stars for Ruth. This was our second event at Port Royal Yacht Club. Aug, 2019, four-piece band played the club's Annual Summer Bash & Benefit for Marine Life Rescue. Here's review from Commodore, Jodi: "Ken and his entire band did a tremendous job at our Summer Bash Fundraiser! They sounded amazing, had a great playlist that satisfied all guests (we had three different generations there), were super flexible in letting me step in when it was time to make announcements, great communication ahead of time and overall, really great value. We had so many guests come up to specifically comment on how great the music was. THANK YOU, GOOD COP BAD CO

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on February 14, 2022From Long Beach, CA

The Duo was amazing! They sounded just as good as a full band! We hired Good Cop Bad Cop for my husband's 40th birthday. We did a classic rock themed party and the Duo made the party over the top! Everyone couldn't stop talking about how great they were and wanted to know how I found them so that they could use them for their celebrations. You'll have zero regrets hiring these guys, I can't say enough, they're just fantastic!!!


Definitely a fun party and a great bunch of people. We thank Cherie and birthday boy, Sean, for their hospitality, for their tip and for having Good Cop Bad Cop.

Review by Bill S.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on January 12, 2022From Los Alamitos, CA

They were excellent!!! They played at my wife's birthday/retirement party and used the songs we asked. We picked about 50 songs and they used the most awesome list. We were dancing the night away. They were not too loud for the room we were in. I would recommend them anytime. Awesome job. They even had my brother in law have a chance to play the bass for one song. So personable and memorable.


We thank Bill for hiring Good Cop Bad Cop (four-piece band), for his hospitality and for this 5-star review. (Interesting fact: Bill S. is Chief Launch Engineer for Virgin Galactic.)

FuneralReviewed on July 30, 2021From Ventura, CA

They did a beautiful job playing one last song "New Kid In Town," for my beloved husband. I know he heard it from heaven. Thank you.


This was an unusual event: Ruth's husband's funeral. The couple were huge Eagles fans; it was her husband's wish to have "New Kid In Town" played as his casket was removed from the hearse, carried up the church step and set outside the church doors for the first part of the ceremony. So, we drove 56 miles, played a great special request with all due understanding and respect. Telling of what kind of person Ruth is: When our performance was finished, when the deceased, friends and family where entering church, Rose, in her grief and shock, from under her black veil and through tears, had the presence of mind to signal her thanks and appreciation to me.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 27, 2021From Coto de Caza, CA

OMG, These guys sounded awesome. Everyone was blown away. They did a special new song for the birthday girl, and they absolutely nailed it. Ken and Mike were so friendly. It was amazing the full sound that this duo can create. I can't give these guys a high enough rating. Seeing is believing. I would definitely hire them again.


Naturally, we are very gratified these folks appreciated the duo as much as Jay said in his review. Surely, we enjoyed playing for these folks. We thank them for their hospitality and tip.
