The Rippers name goes back to a time right around the Summer of Love when the genesis for many of the classics you'll hear us play were in their infancy. You couldn't turn around without hearing a classic hit from the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, or numerous other bands who's sweet sounds defined much of the music we love today. For some it was surfer rock with it's catchy riffs and infectious harmonies, psychedelic rock which sprouted from the evolved folk scene, garage bands trying to become the next big thing while emulating the British Invasion, or even blues and sweet Motown R&B being churned out of Hitsville in Detroit. The music from this era is far from being time capsulized. It lives and breathes in commercials, television shows, movies, tribute bands, karaoke bars, and just about anywhere that music happens. Not only has it not gone away, it's stronger than ever. All music will at some point be considered "oldies" music. Not all music will stand the test of time. The songs covered by The Rippers will display just how much music from the era we cover have more than proved their staying power. You'll see it in every venue we play as people of all ages sing along to nearly every word!
