WEDDINGS & SPECIAL EVENTS
Forewarning: This is a long review, but if you're looking for an incredible band who is caring, professional, talented, down to earth and reasonably priced - read on because 7 Day Weekend Band is where it's at!
7DW was the first decision and best decision we made regarding our wedding planning! As we used to live in Newport, we would see 7DW playing at Blues and Pelham. Everyone of all ages would be dancing and enjoying the bands insanely fun vibe. We knew we had to have them play at our wedding! I immediately contacted Adam (drummer/vendor contact) and we booked them at a very reasonable price for the professionalism and talent that you get from 7DW. For the next year, Adam was in contact with us; checking in on our wedding plans and just seeing how we were doing in general. If we went to a local show, the guys would get us on the list and always stop by to chat with us. They are so down to earth and just incredible people. As the date got closer, we met with the band and discussed all the details. Adam offered to edit our mother/son, father daughter, and first dance songs for us by shortening the lengths and adding a mashup of songs to one of them. He sent them beforehand to us to approve and they came out perfectly!
Adam and the band truly cared what we wanted for our wedding and made sure we got it! He gave us tips and suggestions from his and the bands experiences and it honestly felt like we were working with friends. The week leading up to the wedding was the most stressful and Adam was the vendor contact that made me feel the most at ease. I knew that they wouldn't let me down... And they didn't. They were the hit of the night. We instantly had a PACKED dance floor from the first song they played to the very last song (they even played an extra song because we didn't want them to stop!) They play an awesome variety of music that speaks to all ages. They even let me come up and sing my favorite song with them! It's rare that you go to a wedding and see 90-95% of people on the dance floor the WHOLE time. Well, that was ours.
My wedding was the best night of my life and 7DW was a major part in making my wedding the best night of my life. If you are looking for a band, stop right now and do yourself and your guests a favor by booking 7DW. You won't be disappointed. They are unbelievable!!

If we could give these guys 100 stars we would. As soon as we saw 7 Day Weekend at Harpoon fest in 2020 we knew we would have them at our wedding. Fast forward almost three years later and we manifested that true. If you are even considering booking a band for your wedding these guys are a must. Our families have not stopped talking about how much they loved the band at our wedding. The dance floor was packed all night long. On top of being amazing musicians they guys are awesome people. You will not regret booking them!

If you are looking for a fun, exciting, energetic band so you can dance the night away then 7 Day Weekend is the band for you. We found this band when we were out one night and instantly knew we wanted them for our wedding. They are very organized, professional and helped us throughout the entire process. They play all genres so there’s something for everyone to like. All of our wedding guests were raving about how good they were and wondering where they can see them play again. They definitely exceeded our expectations. We would HIGHLY recommend 7 Day Weekend for any wedding or event!

Seven Day Weekend was by the far one of the best vendors we picked for our entire wedding weekend! A four day event with 4 different bands, and they absolutely made it the best reception we could have ever asked for. They had every single person including my 91 year old grandmother up on the dance floor. They worked with us to curate the perfect set list based on our guests and ad libbed in the best way possible to read the room and what our guests we’re enjoying. To this day, every single person we have talked to mentions how they were “ the best wedding band ever” and I truly stand by that! They stepped in when other vendors failed, and made sure we had a perfect musical component. They are the perfect band to make sure every guest is moving and grooving! From day one to now, they have been nothing but a pleasure to work with and keep you and your party at the center of their attention.

If you are looking to have the best night of your lives and dance the night away then 7 Day Weekend is the band for you!
We have seen 7 day play at various places in RI. They are our favorite band and to have them at our wedding was absolutely amazing!
They know how to get everyone up and dancing and play the best music.
They played such a variety of music and everyone danced! They were great to work with from the start to finish and very professional. Joe is a great MC and the band is so organized and helped us stay on a schedule all day and helped the day go smoothly.
Our friends are still talking about how great 7 day was! We had the time of our lives at our wedding and we owe it to 7 day for bringing the party!

Where do I even begin with 7 Day Weekend?! From the day we met Adam during our introduction call, he was professional - yet fun, honest and super helpful. He took time in getting to know us and encouraged us to check out their shows throughout the year to get a sense of songs and sets we liked. Over the course of our engagement, we saw countless shows and with every show, the reason we booked the band never felt so right. They knew how to get the crowd going - despite the ages of those in attendance or the environment they were playing in! We knew early on we made the right call in having them as our wedding band. Every show we saw, they made a point to come over and chat with us. We truly felt like friends by the time our wedding came around.
The day of our wedding was nothing short of perfect- despite the hurricane we got thrown our way (on an island mind you) and 7 Day Weekend didn't care. Instead, they embraced the crazy weather and they truly were the reason we had a wedding to remember. They dealt with me and my husband on the microphone throughout the evening- and encouraged it which was so fun! And they kept the crowd going the entire night. They event played a Taylor Swift matchup (which I had seen at one of their earlier shows and requested) and of course the girls were all in to it- but the guys were too! It was such a cool performance... something folks had never seen before. All of our guests have been raving about the band since our big day - so much so that they want to go see them play again at different venues. They listened to the vibe of music we wanted, played songs that we asked for and I trusted them to fill in the gaps, and they did so seamlessly.
The band got stuck on the island for a few days due to cancelled ferries, which while was out of our control, they were extremely understanding, kind and patient with us. They made the best out of the situation and truly showed the type of people they were even after our wedding was over by checking in on us and staying in touch. They eased our anxiety and were the easiest to work with. They really are such a chill group of guys that just wanted us to have the best time of our lives on one of the most important days... and we had just that because of them. I really couldn't recommend this band enough to any future couple looking to have your dance floor packed from beginning to end! 7 Day Weekend is the absolute BEST!! I would pick them over and over again :)

If you are looking for a band to remember for the best night of your life, hire these guys! They were absolutely unreal, lively, Talented, amazingly friendly and pleasant to work with...they sure as hell know how to get the crowd going!! The music for our wedding was the most important part and they truly lived up to our expectations. All of our guests were raving the next day about how much fun they had on the dance floor because our band was so amazing. It felt like we were at a fun bar with awesome live music. If you are looking for not your typical wedding band, a band who is way above average and doesn't play Cheesy wedding music, 7 DAY WEEKEND is a must!!! Everything from working together up until the big night was such a pleasant process. Solid group of nice, talented guys who want everyone to have a good time!!!!!
Casey & Eddie
"7 day weekend was the best wedding band ever" was what I heard all night and for the next few weeks from all who attended our wedding! And boy is that an understatement because they are not just the best wedding band they are the best band! My husband and I saw them live in block island at the yellow kittens things may have gotten a little fuzzy that night but we had the most amazing time and we had to hire them as our wedding band & bring them back to block! They play such a variety of music from Disney and Grease to blink 182 and Eminem! If your worried about not having a female singer.... stop they don’t need one they even kill Lizzo songs! With covid things were tough planning but Adam was great with communication and honestly kept me sane when we were told we couldn’t dance and helped me through the stress of covid wedding planning! Once the day came it was perfect!!! Everyone danced all night long, family members who haven’t danced in years! We danced at our tables or outside social distancing but it was beyond amazing!! We all sang along to every song!! Adam even mixed a special song for my mom and I to dance to! When we began planning our wedding our two most important things were our venue and our band so that no one stopped dancing all night and 7 day weekend did just that!! They were all we could have ever asked for and more! They really surpassed all of our expectations! I would highly recommend them!! Some of our guest are already ready to book them for their weddings!!

We had our wedding at The Spring House on Block Island 9/28/19, and it was the time of our lives!!! I had seen 7 day weekend a few times over the years at Whiskey Priest and East Bay Grille, and I always had a good time when they’d play! Then we realized they did weddings when we attended our friend’s wedding last August...where we literally didn’t leave the dance floor. We hired them right after and they were AMAZING to work with! Despite the crazy schedule they had with shows all summer, they were incredibly responsive and supportive during the planning process. They were very easy-going, down to earth, and flexible, which was a breath of fresh air since so much goes into an Island wedding. These guys seriously made the event, and they were reasonably priced too! The actual wedding day they arrived with big smiles, a sense of calmness, and really gave off the vibe that it was going to be a fun night. Our ceremony was on the front lawn, dinner was on a patio out back, and then dancing inside. Since we required music for the ceremony, audio for speeches during dinner, and obviously needed the band on the dance floor... this venue could have been a challenge! However they made the transition seamless and did an amazing job making sure it all went perfectly. The song line up was unbelievable, so great that you wouldn’t want to take a bathroom break because you didn’t want to miss a song. People came up to me saying things like “My Husband never dances and he won’t get off the dance floor”. They were a blast!!!! Hire them now!!!!

If you want a band who knows what they are doing, can flex and create whatever you want for your day, has amazing communication, and brings the party harder than anyone else, this is your band!
Adam and the whole crew were absolutely amazing throughout the process. We saw them at a local venue (non wedding) where they completely rocked the house. While we were looking for a wedding band 7 Day Weekend popped up and we remembered how much we liked their show. They were completely reasonable from a price perspective and offered everything we needed from DJ/MC to every type of music we could want (which spanned from 80's slow jams to brand new stuff). Not only did they put on an amazing show they accommodated everything we needed. My father and father in law both play guitar and the band allowed them to play a special song plugging into their equipment and taking the stage. The Maid of Honor also had a musical special request for her speech that the band nailed despite only getting about 24 hours notice on it.
Our venue was non traditional so they coordinated their own up lighting and came early for a electric and sound check since they were playing under a tent outside. They totally brought down the house, well tent I guess :). The dance floor was packed all night. One of the coolest parts was that they learned to play our first dance song and sang it perfectly even adjusting the timing so that it was not too long and awkward.
As far as communication goes, the band was incredible throughout utilizing texts, phone calls, emails and google documents, so that we could collaborate and coordinate on song lists and entrance music. They never went more than a couple hours to answer questions we had. I never had any doubt that they would be terrific but they definitely went above and beyond making us feel totally comfortable and at ease. We had last minute changes (like within 5 days) and had to switch entrance lineup names right before we came in because of a flower girl tantrum but the band was able to roll with it and didn't miss a beat.
I could not more highly recommend 7 day weekend for your day, we had lots of people ask about them after saying they were amazing. I spent a lot of time talking up how great they were logistically, but the musical talent and ability to interact with the crowd and connect throughout the show is unparalleled. Everyone at the wedding of 175 people was up dancing the whole night. We will still go to their shows (or maybe crash a wedding if necessary) just to see these guys rock again
Amazing all around!!
Brian & Kelsey B
These guys absolutely rock! From day one they were responsive, helpful, and knowledgeable. Their song list covers almost every genre and they know how to electrify a crowd. This experience was worth every penny. 11/10 would highly recommend

Working with 7 Day Weekend was an absolute treat. My now wife and I had caught them playing in Newport, RI one weekend and immediately knew we wanted them to play at our wedding. From the moment we discussed hiring them until the day of the wedding Adam was incredibly attentive and thorough with communication and planning with us. Whether it was phone calls, texts, emails or a Google Docs sheet to prepare for the day, planning was a breeze. He kept himself incredibly available when I had any questions or concerns and it quickly allowed me to put full trust in what he promised to do. Let me tell you, they delivered!! We were able to customize our playlists during their breaks, even playing songs that are popular in Brazil (where half of the family is from). Their performance is where they really shine. Joe was very engaging with the guests and got family members on the dance floor I never expected to see out there! Our wedding day was that much more special because of the effort and care they put into it for us. Our family grew 5 members larger that day.

7 Day Weekend was the absolute BEST wedding band I could have picked. I first saw them play a East Bay Grille in Plymouth a couple of years ago and at the time my fiancé and I both agreed we had to find a way to get these guys to play at our wedding some day (at the time we weren't even engaged). Immediately when we picked a venue and a date, they were the first band we contacted. Adam was SUPER responsive via email and sent me a Google Doc list of everything pertaining to all the information of the bride and grooms, parents, bridal party, cake cutting song, songs we didn't want played, what time they could set up etc. A lot of things I would not have even thought of! I started to fill in the Google Doc form he sent me and within a day he responded back on the document leaving notes and asking questions. It was super helpful. Not only were they responsive via email, but within MINUTES of sending Adam a text he responded answering any questions I had. Adam also would text me random questions to help him clarify how to make my day easy and perfect. I was beyond pleased with how professional these guys were and how quick they were to make sure everything was in its place before the big day. The night of my wedding they came early to set up their equipment so they could have a seamless entrance after the first acoustic band we had. And it was totally seamless- you would not have even known that there were two different bands playing at the wedding that night. Once 7 Day Weekend started playing everyone was on the dance floor. They kept the crowd jumping and dancing for like 3 hours straight. Their energy on stage and relationship with the audience was absolutely top notch. Their music selection was amazing and the medleys of the different songs put together was amazing. At the end of the night we had friends and family asking for their contact info. I have zero complaints with this band. I HIGHLY recommend- they're the best!!

We've been attending 7 Day Weekend shows for years, but never really considered if they’d play a private event. We contacted them about playing for our wedding, which was in September 2014, unsure if it would be possible, or affordable. We were pleasantly surprised with their energetic response, as well as with the price. Their music provided a backdrop for our reception, complete with the classics and full sets of more modern songs to keep the guests dancing. The band went out of their way to learn about us, understand which songs fit us and our crowd, and even added a few special "extra" songs for us, which they surprised us with throughout the night.
What speaks to the band more-so than their awesome personalities is their performance. There was no time — not one song — where most of our guests were not out on the dance floor. Our wedding pictures were just one after the next of friends and family, young and old, out sweating on the dance floor with huge smiles. Our best photos came from that dance floor.
To stress that point further, the venue had a strict "no music" policy after 10pm, which the band respected — even when various wedding guests came up with fistfuls of cash in an attempt to get the band to comply with their chanted request for just "one more song". It was so much fun to see a wedding where all of the guests (not just the drunk ones) were hoping that the night wouldn't end.
Weddings are stressful to plan and coordinate, and there are many things we wouldn't waste our time and energy on if we had to do it all over again. Hiring 7 Day Weekend was the absolute best investment we made and the main reason we have so many wonderful memories of our wedding reception. As a couple, we just wanted to make sure our wedding was fun for everyone and 7 Day Weekend was absolutely key in making sure that happened.
We can't thank the band enough, and would be happy to provide additional information or photographs upon request. If you're thinking of booking a band, look no further. And don't just take our word for it: We've heard personally from almost all of our ~180 wedding guests saying that the band made the wedding one of the best they've ever been to.

7 Day Weekend is the best band for a wedding or event!! They are incredibly responsive and accommodating, as well as fun to work with. They sincerely want you and your guests to have the best time possible - and I promise, my guests and myself and my husband had the best time possible! I had seen them play twice before my wedding, so we already knew we had to hire them - no doubt at all. They keep EVERYONE dancing ALL night long! And they even make sure the bride and groom have time to eat. I got compliments from all of my wedding guests (young and old) on how fantastic 7 Day Weekend is! They played top 40 hits, popular 90's songs (which my husband loves), 70's and 80's songs (which my aunts and uncles loved). I mean seriously - the BEST band you could ever hire! On top of them being fun to listen to, they have fun while they are playing too! They don't just play to you, they include you in the performance which makes it so much fun! They are FANTASTIC - don't bother listening to multiple bands and dj's - just pick 7 Day Weekend!
Ashley & Travis W
7DW was honestly the best decision we made for our wedding! We got married on June 22nd and people are STILL talking about how much fun they had and how amazing the band was. There was not a single moment all night where a crowd wasn't on the dance floor (which is exactly what we wanted!) They took care of everything! Between setting up music for our outdoor ceremony, announcements of our family and wedding party, coordination of the timeline, and just plain rocking out every single song!!! I would HIGHLY recommend them for your wedding!!! We could not be happier with how the night turned out, and we owe A LOT of that to 7DW. :)
Brittney & Drew T
These guys are so amazing! 7 day weekend truly made our night exactly what we wanted. From the beginning, Adam was super easy to work with. He's so organized, thorough and super responsive which made the entire process so stress free. He answered all of our questions and made some great recommendations.
As an emcee, they were great too! They made sure they knew how to pronounce everyone's name and kept the flow of our night running so smooth. We didn't have a wedding coordinator so these guys gladly took that task on and were on point all night! All of the guys in the band work so well together...such great chemistry on stage! They are also very interactive with the crowd which was so much fun to see! Our friends and family are still raving about how much fun they had and how great the music was!
Check out their website for demo videos or even better go see them live at one of their shows. You will not be disappointed! I would highly recommend 7 day weekend for any special event!
These guys brought so much energy and fun to our wedding. Adam is a great person to work with, very flexible and professional. We went through songs and timelines with no troubles at all. Their performance got everybody on the dance floor and nobody wanted the night to end. Both the ceremony and dinner with speeches and announcements were perfect! They really made it the best reception with their music. All the covers were great, sing-a-longs encouraged and all the plans we worked out beforehand were accomplished. I would recommend Adam and his group to anybody looking for a really fun and upbeat wedding or party!
We had 7 Day Weekend for our wedding and they were amazing. They made our wedding day that more fun and a night we will never forget. All our guests had the best time and were dancing all night! 7 day weekend is a good band for everyone because they get everyone involved-all ages and sing songs from all different genres. I would recommend them to all my family and friends to hire them. They are very professional and extremely nice and amazing at what they do!
First wedding I have ever been to where EVERY person at the event was on the dance floor at one given time. From age 2 to age 83! All dancing and having a great time. It has been over a year and friends still talk about the band we had and how much they loved it.
The band members are so friendly and easy to work with during the wedding planning process,. They really got the crowd at our wedding dancing and excited! The guests couldn't stop complimenting them. They made our dream wedding a reality. We love 7dayweeked!
7 Day Weekend is the best! They’re talented, fun, and had all of our guests up and dancing the whole time. All of the guys are really nice and easy to work with. They made sure all of our requests were met and played a big part in making our wedding day as special as it was!
Hiring 7 Day weekend was the best decision we made for our wedding!!
They were so easy/ flexible to work with. They did our ceremony music and reception and everything was done perfectly.
They kept the partying going all night and all of our guest kept saying how much they loved them.
If you’re on the fence of hiring them-don’t be! You won’t regret it!
