We hired Brian to play at our wedding pre-party and after party. From the moment we started emailing back and forth regarding the party I knew we made the right choice. Brian and his brother are very professional, respectful and on top of it. At both parties Brian was a massive hit. He knows every song that people threw at him and had the ability to keep everyones energy and enthusiasm peaking. He really made our party more memorable than anything else. He plays in NYC often and we will be seeing him every time we go. I can't recommend him enough.
Brian Ripps is the guy you want at your event. From bars and music clubs to weddings, birthday parties, colleges and other private events, he has made nearly 1500 appearances since 2007 as a solo act, an acoustic duo and with his rock band, The Turn. In addition to his growing catalog of original material, Brian maintains a vast repertoire of rehearsed cover songs (over 1000 songs), amongst which Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean," The Beatles' "Come Together," and Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" are some of his favorites to play. The list (available to view at TheTurnLibrary.Tumblr.com), of course, goes on, but perhaps his most unique trait is his willingness and ability to play any song that he has been exposed to on request. No matter what capacity he appears in, Brian's charisma and enthusiasm are contagious and will surely complement your event. He loves nothing more than a good time and an opportunity to entertain you and your guests.
