The Free Downloads are the hottest new wedding band in New England. Led by vocal sensations Neil Letendre and Sheree Dunwell, they have been receiving rave reviews over the past 3 years for the tremendous energy they bring to each performance, and for their professionalism and attention to detail during the wedding planning process.

During a typical evening, you can expect to hear every style of popular music well represented--current top 40, classic rock, 80's, motown/soul, 90's, disco, and of course classic jazz and swing. The Free Downloads are very open to taking requests, and are always willing to be flexible about creating a specific song list that reflects your musical tastes.

You can also count on The Free Downloads to provide music for your Ceremony (classical guitar & violin) and Cocktail Hour.

For information on rates and availability, please contact Bandleader/Guitarist George Leonard at the phone or email listed on this page. Be sure to mention that you found the band on Wedding Wire!!! Read less

I’d like to start off by saying that this was the GREATEST band I have ever seen perform at a wedding! The Free Downloads played at our wedding reception November 29, 2014 at the Chatham Bars Inn and they absolutely brought down the house.
I had made a request to George asking if my grandfather who is also a musician could use their keyboard and play alongside the sax player for the cocktail hour. George was very accommodating and it was amazing to see the enjoyment my grandfather had playing. He raved about how professional everyone in the band was and how talented they were together.
After dinner everyone hit the dance floor and didn’t’ leave until the wedding was coming to an end. People would have stayed all night dancing if they were given the option; no one wanted the music to stop.
Since the wedding, my wife and I have received phone calls, texts and emails from our guests telling us that the band along with the wedding was unbelievable. I have already recommended this band to 3 friends that are getting married in 2015.
If you want a band to perform at your wedding that is very talented, a lot of fun and upbeat then I highly recommend The Free Downloads! -Tommy and Chrisse Weymouth MA 11/29/14

The Free Downloads are amazing!! We had them at our wedding in November and they played during our ceremony, cocktail hour, and 5 hour reception. Having a great band was really important to us. We saw close to 15 bands before we made our final decision with the Free Downloads, and we hired them immediately the first day we saw them. They are, by far, the best band we heard!
George is so easy to work with. He is professional, replies quickly to emails and phone calls, answered all of my questions and made sure I felt comfortable and confident about the events of the day.
My husband is from Idaho and grew up listening to country music, and not the pop country on the radio. George and the violinist learned a song for our ceremony and they played it perfectly.
The band learned another country song for our first dance and again, it was perfect. I think Neil sang it better than the original!
Sheree is unbelievable! There is literally nothing she cannot sing. From Frank Sinatra originals to Beyonce hits, she can sing it all and will definitely get your guests on the dance floor.
We had a very fun and energetic group of 200 guests at our wedding. My husband and I entered the reception to the band's cover of Whitney Houston's "I Want to Dance with Somebody" and all 200 people got onto the dance floor and started dancing.. this was at 6pm! The dance floor was packed the entire night and we even had guests chant ,"1 more song" not once, but twice, when the reception was over! This band is not only incredibly talented musically, but also fun, interactive with guests, and truly knows how to make a party one that no one will forget! I could go on forever, but if you are on here looking for a wedding band.. look no more- hire the Free Downloads!!

George and the Free Downloads were the most amazing band! George was so professional and easy to work with. George was prompt in answering all of my questions while planning my wedding and always made time to talk. Not only did the band sound amazing their personality and enthusiasm shinned throughout the night. George and the band took the rains and played songs that really suited our guests. There wasn't an empty spot on the dance floor all night. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band for a wedding or event. We will definitely visit them in Boston!!

There is literally nothing bad I could say about the Free Downloads. They were one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. George Leonard was the head of the band that we were fully in contact with throughout the process of the wedding. The literally stole the show at our wedding! Not only are the extremely talented- the singers voices are amazing and the band learned 4 songs for us (even though the said they would learn 3). We also had George play the classical Guitar at our ceremony and last minute he got a Ukulele to play because I wanted the Hawaiian version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Then we had him and some vocals playing for the cocktail hour. They did our entire wedding and I wouldn’t have changed our band for anything! We are a strange couple and our music ranged from Country to Classic Rock to top 40 and they rocked every stage- the only thing we didn’t want were the classic “wedding songs”- you know Journey and Bon Jovi types of songs. Do they have these to chose from.. OF COURSE… but any song we asked them NOT to play they didn’t and every song we asked them to play they DID! If you are looking for an amazing band in the RI or MA area do not over look the Free Downloads! Love love loved them!

My daughter and son-in-law got married this past Saturday in Little Compton Rhode Island. The success of the wedding had a large part to do with this band! They were wonderful. The music throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour and the entire reception exceeded our wishes and we couldn't have asked for more. The Free Downloads were professional, easy to communicate with, and the perfect choice for any wedding.

My husband and I had our wedding on July 5th on an absolutely PERFECT day in Wolfeboro, NH! One of the most important parts of planning our wedding for us was choosing a band. The music at a wedding can be the difference between a great party that everyone has tons of fun at and just a so-so wedding. But we live in Hong Kong, so choosing a band from the other side of the planet was a challenge, as we couldn't just go see them!
After a long search and watching many YouTube videos and reading the great reviews, we settled on The Free Downloads. First of all, George was awesome to work with. Responded so quickly to all our emails and accommodated all our requests, so easy! And at the wedding THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! They had people on the dance floor the moment dinner ended. And I don't mean like 3 or 4 people, there were instantly like 25 people dancing, which I have never seen at a wedding before.
They played the perfect mix of songs for our crowd and everyone loved every second of it. One of my friends requested Shout... if you hire the Free Downloads, I HIGHLY recommend you request this. It was one of the most fun few minutes of the night! The singers were down with the crowd dancing and getting everyone so involved, I cannot say enough good things!
In the weeks since the wedding we have had so many of our guests tell us it was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding, or that it was the best band they have ever seen at a wedding.
Hiring the Free Downloads was the best decision we made in regards to our wedding planning. We love them!! Thank you so much Free Downloads!!!!!!

The Free Downloads were an awesome addition to our wedding! It would not have been the same without them. George, the band leader/guitar player, was very easy to communicate with and great to work with. George also played classical guitar during our ceremony, which was well done and a nice touch. The sax and piano players played some jazz tunes during cocktail hour, which was also great! The band was able to learn two new songs for us, and they tailored their playlist for the night to our wants/needs. Guests from ages 14-85 were dancing all night long and multiple people told us they were the best wedding band they had ever heard. A few guests even thought we were playing a CD during dinner, when it was just the band playing in the background! We would highly recommend The Free Downloads to anyone looking for a band for any event!
