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 ourwedding 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!!

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 know's 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!!

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 fiance 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!

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. :)

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!
