Wow, thank you to all the couples that hired me to play Live Music + DJ at all 50 weddings this 2022, you know who you are 🙂 Can’t tell you how much joy was had but I reckin it was ample. Here are a few POV clips from my new camera I got a couple months ago to ‘One More Time’ Daft Punk. Any of my sailing friends need crew btw. January-March? Cover photo: @lauragaresphoto
Live From Home – Here is a collection of a little bit of this and a little bit of that. My concept of cocktail hour music is tends to be more fun and less whimsical that ceremony music. But thats just me. You’re really welcome to pick any song from my song list of btw 500-600 songs (and its growing!). You can check that out here
The wedding ceremony is imagined, organized and made a reality together. We will communicate over the phone, email, or even in person to design your wedding. With the help of resources like a personalized song list where all you have to do is check off songs as well as a ‘wedding planner’ to make sure that any key moments like your processional are linked with the right song – you’ll likely find it is a lot easier than you thought to settle on a plan. Ryan will execute on that plan with the professionalism and spirit that your special occasion deserves!
We had a great time getting together for the Benefit Of Mr. Kite… oops, I mean the benefit of a high school in Lesotho, Africa that we are working on building. Enjoy the clips from the concert. Perhaps, will have one again soon

Hey, this is an opportunity for me to provide you with a glimpse into what your wedding may be like when you hire Ryan Cook Music. Not all of these videos are from weddings but I wanted to show you some songs that I think fit nicely into different parts of your wedding, be it the ceremony, cocktail hour and/or reception. Let me know what you envision for your wedding!
I take note of all the music I feel inspired by and want to learn as well as the music that has been requested of me when I’m out gigging. Then, every few months – BOOM I research chords, make adjustments by ear, arrange lyrics, analyze playability and have days like this where I print out 25-35 new songs, sort, collate, 3-hole punch and start the process of getting the to a performance level. Don’t take my word for it (remember Reading Rainbow? :-), watch/listen here:
Let me know about the kind of music you would like to hear at your gig and see if I already play any of your favorites by checking out my Song List
I was fortunate enough to be asked to gather a TRIO out of some of my musician friends for an event this SPRING season. That is why I have included a TRIO as a service here: DUO & TRIO
Now I can SHOW you what it may look like for a TRIO to play at YOUR event. Take a minute and check out the video of our TRIO performance here. While your at it, if you are interested in keeping up with any video content on my Youtube page (where this video is located) make sure to ‘like’ the video, ‘subscribe,’ and select the ‘bell’ icon to be notified of any new video content when its made available
I am happy to continue playing in concert with other musicians as more of a band. It really depends on what you are looking for and your budget. If you have any questions or would like to book me in any capacity make sure to ‘Get In Touch‘
I’m excited to tell you that I’ve started a new project and am very very excited about it. I’ve been pulling resources and gathering equipment to do home recordings, Music Videos and possibly some music vlogging. If you would like join my tribe you will be just that, my tribe. You will be the first to see all creative projects, will receive exclusive offers and all sorts of special stuff as we strengthen the fabric of our creative tribe.
This song “Loch Lomond” is the first recording.
Loch Lomond is a favorite of mine from the time when I went over to visit my grandparents and explore the beautiful country of Scotland. I really fell in love with the people, their accents, the land, the scotch, and especially the music. 1/2 of the photos in the video were taken by me and the ones that weren’t I was fortunate enough to BE at all those places. Just not fortunate enough to take pictures that are quite as good.
I know its St. Patricks day, this is a Celtic masterpiece so, enjoy!
