About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Based in Providence, Rhode Island, The Free Downloads is a cover band that performs for weddings and events. They were founded in 2009 and provide music that covers more than six decades of hit tunes. Priding themselves on their high levels of professionalism, the band can enliven your wedding with melodies from start to finish.

Services Offered

The Free Downloads begin their services by playing instrumental music for your ceremony. You can glide down the aisle accompanied by the soft melodies of a violin, piano, or guitar complemented by vocals if you so choose. Moving to the hour of hors d'oeuvres before dinner, the band can play jazz or rock music specially tailored to create a sophisticated ambiance. Later, after dinner, dance to varied songs from their playlist. If you have a specific request that is not provided, the band can learn up to two songs for your special event.

    Our Favorite Wedding Vendor!

    The Free Downloads played our wedding on 4/8/2022 at Glen Manor in Portsmouth RI and 2 weeks later- our families, friends, my husband and I, are STILL talking about how incredible the music, dancing and energy was! The band has a wonderful way of mixing personality in with performance without being cheesy. Planning on our part was minimal but results were incredible and tailored to our taste. It felt like a concert designed solely for our crowd. We can't recommend The Free Downloads enough- we are fans for life!

    This band RULES

    We hired The Free Downloads at the recommendation of a family friend, and oh my god it was the best decision. First of all, the music was great. The band has fabulous energy. After we filled out their (detailed and well organized!) google doc of our requests, do-not-plays, and general order of events, they did an amazing job reading the room and choosing the perfect next song. Our guests from every generation were dancing ALL NIGHT. They also handled our ceremony music and sound, which was also spectacular. Thank you Free Downloads!!

    Amazing!!!

    The Free Downloads played at our wedding on Block Island on 08/07/21 and they were incredible! Their talent & energy truly made our wedding reception unforgettable! We had to postpone our wedding due to the pandemic, but throughout it all the band was so flexible and accommodating. Planning a wedding on an island comes with additional challenges, but they were easy to work with in securing their accommodations and ferry reservations (i.e. they did it all). George was professional, responsive and supportive. After the wedding, they even DJ’d music at the after party and kept the energy pumping into the night. Our family & friends are still raving about how fantastic the band was - 100% recommend!
