We cannot say enough about how wonderful The Free Downloads were at our wedding on August 4, 2018! From the very first song until the last song of the night, our guests had an amazing time and loved everything they played! As musicians and singers, every member of the band is so talented and it is clear they all love what they do. Even the service staff and concierge at our reception location asked us for more information about the band, since they enjoyed listening to them throughout the night, too! Throughout the planning process, George, the band leader, was responsive, kind, and supportive. He consistently answered all of our questions and provided us with all necessary information to lead to a wonderful performance and event! Through a collaborative planning sheet, we were able to plan out the timeline of the evening, confirm all details for the day of, and highlight specific songs from their set list that we wanted played or did not want played. George even played specific songs we had sent him as MP3s for the band break between sets, which meant so much to us! When it came time to the day of the event, all of the information gathered through the planning sheet was executed successfully, leading to a stress-free and fun evening of music and dancing! We would 100% recommend the Free Downloads to anyone looking for a talented band that will provide professionalism, entertainment, and fun to your event! Thank you!

We had seen this band before at a friend’s wedding and knew we had to have them play at ours! We’ve received nothing but compliments about how amazing and fun they were!! We had SO MUCH FUN with them. George, the leader of the band, is awesome and doesn’t miss any details about introductions, etc., is attentive to emails, and so nice. I also heard rave reviews from the caterers and waitstaff about how sweet they all were. The quality of the music they play is also incredible- they belong on the radio. Both lead singers are SOOOOOO GOOD. If you want a super fun party, they are your band!
