About

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.

Best decision we made for our wedding day

Hiring The Free Downloads was hands down one of the best decisions (if not THE best decision) we made for our wedding day. They were absolutely incredible to work with and are outstanding performers. From the start, communicating with The Free Downloads was easy and simple; they were kind, friendly, flexible, and professional throughout the entire process--and even seamlessly accommodated a last minute change just days before our wedding. And their performance was just absolutely fabulous. Every single song was an 11/10. While at the wedding and after, so many of our guests constantly kept telling us how amazing the band was...and I know I'll be talking about them for the rest of my life. Plus, their energy: not only can you see it when they perform, but The Free Downloads did an amazing job MC-ing for us. I truly could not recommend them more. If you love live music and you want the best of the best, hire The Free Downloads.

The BEST wedding abdn

We loved having TFDs at our wedding. This was my second experience with them, as they played my sister's wedding back in 2015. They were great then, and even better the second time around! George and Sheree, the two band members who do the planning with you, are super easy and nice to work with. On the day, they come with a lot of energy, flexibility and professionalism. We had to make a few last minute changes to the schedule and location and they were able to adjust to everything, stick with the schedule and put on a great event.
Even though I'm sure they have done hundreds of weddings, they make you feel like you, your friends and family are the best crowd they've ever played for. Our guests were blown away and can't stop telling us how much fun they had. The band is very talented (Sheree doing Lizzo covers, wow!) and play a great mix of songs for people of all generations. They will learn a song or two at your request (in advance) and did a very sweet rendition of Harvest Moon for us that meant so much to the groom's parents. They charge a fair price for their level of talent and service and are absolutely worth every penny. We appreciate them so much!

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!
