We couldn't recommend the Free Downloads more! We heard about them from a friend of the family and, after listening to a set or two online, asked to hear them live. They were extremely accommodating in setting up a time for us to listen to them. Once we heard them live, we knew we wanted to hire them. They are seriously worth every penny. We gave them a few songs we wanted to hear and a few songs we definitely didn't want to hear and they built a playlist that kept everyone dancing all night. All of our guests loved them! Amazing talent and great people to work with.

The Free Downloads played at our wedding this November 2017, and we had the time of our lives. It's December and people are still talking about how great they are, and how much fun they had dancing. I've never seen so many people on the dance floor and stay on the dance floor all night long!

They were super accommodating and helpful. With only a month or so notice on song choice before the wedding, they managed to play both the father-daughter dance, and the mother-son dance which was not on their original play list. We were so surprised, because we didn't specifically request it and were totally cool with the recordings, but it was so much better having them play it. When we needed advice on music to play during certain parts of the event, they were super helpful with recommendations that were fun and would keep everyone's energy up. Sheree and Neil are amazing vocalists, and are super sweet!

The process of communicating all of the information (which is a lot) was super easy. They have a super easy questionnaire that they send through google drive and you update directly on it. George checked in on us as we got close to the wedding, and made some great suggestions on music for introducing the wedding party at the reception. They really made everything super easy and convenient!

Thank you all for making our wedding such an amazing experience and so much fun we want to do it again!!! ~Matt & Christine
