ABOUT THE BAND

The Free

The Best Things in Life.

Introducing The Free: an upscale party band that blends modern style and rootsy charm. The Free hail from the South but are not a Southern rock band, a distinction that becomes obvious as soon as the band takes the stage. They keep up with the latest from Bruno Mars and Taylor Swift, effortlessly transition to musical comfort food from artists like Mumford & Sons, Tom Petty and Johnny Cash, and perform their show with a stylish, youthful energy and a homespun flair all their own. Begun in 201 . . .

To: Mike @ Sam Hill Entertainment

Hi Mike! 
Thanks for reaching out! I'm so excited to report that Friday evening was beyond anything we could have ever hoped for!!! The Free was fantastic and left our guests blown away by their talent, energy and stage presence! It really felt like we were at a private concert and several times I had to do a double take at the stage to make sure that the song wasn't actually being performed by the original artist! Collectively, the group achieves such a full, vibrant sound you would think there were 10 musicians on that stage, not 6. The vocal combination of the lead singers is so powerful, it left me and my (now) husband with full body chills and in awe during our first dance!
All of our guests noticed how uniquely talented they are and we frequently found the room in full applause and cheering, especially when they would play one of their mashups tunes (which is what made us fall in love with them to begin with!). We're so grateful to this group for going the extra mile to learn our custom songs, and they NAILED a blended rendition of Bruce Springsteen's The River and John Mellencamp's Small Town a very special request that I made for the song my Dad and I danced to. I just can't say enough about how much we love this band and we SO appreciate that they were fully present and engaged with the audience from start to finish. You would never guess that our wedding was just one night in their schedule of backtoback nights of performances. They made our wedding celebration energetic and fun in a time when all of us desperately needed a night like that, and it made all the difference in the world! We will absolutely recommend them to friends and family and really hope we can find and opportunity to work with them again some time in the future.
I also heard from our planners and the venue coordinator that they were very nice to work with, even behind the scenes, which is always such a relief to hear!

Hi, there!
I was the wedding photographer at Abby and Mike's wedding at Piedmont Park this Fall, where your band, The Free performed. First, let me say, they were absolutely fantastic. I have never been blown away by a wedding band before. They were so energetic and fun, it felt like an actual concert. Just had to let you know!
I really hope to work together again in the future I can't wait to recommend you guys to future couples!

Holy Cow! The Free was everything we wanted for our wedding reception! All of our guests told us they never wanted to leave the dance floor and that it was like a concert they didn’t want to end. Genevieve and Garrison were amazing and interacted with the crowd and even let us up on stage to rap which was awesome! Working with them logistically was a breeze and we ran into no problems. 
I would 100% recommend The Free to anyone looking for a live band!
Thank you so much,Chris

Good Morning, Beth! Taryn and Sam are honeymooning so you might not hear from them for a bit but I’ll be happy to share my thoughts.... AMAZING! The Free was absolutely the best choice for this wedding. The goals were to provide Taryn and Sam with the wedding they dreamed of AND to ensure the guests had a fantastic night of celebrating! Both were achieved! No joke... every guest praised the band claiming it was the best wedding reception they’d ever attended. The dance floor was NEVER empty. We have nothing but glowing reviews for them. Along with sounding terrific they were entertaining, professional, engaging, and sweet people! Now that’s just my opinion but I believe everyone who attended would agree with me! 😜
Thank you!

PS The planner also mentioned that she would start recommending them as this was the first time The Free had played in this event space.

Andrew,
Our experience with The Free was excellent !We had requested them to learn a song and play a special version of another and they performed both flawlessly.
The music and energy The Free brought to our wedding reception kept the crowd on their feet and dancing the entire night. They engaged the guests and encouraged them to keep going....and going. We have received many compliments on how good the band was and are very pleased with the results
.
Would definitely consider them again.

The band was absolutely fantastic. We received numerous compliments on how great they were. They were very accommodating in playing the songs we requested. They brought great energy and made the day something we will never forget. We truly owe a huge thank you to the Free!
Working with Sam Hill was extremely easy. I did like that the final transaction could be paid online instead of having to bring a check to the venue. With so much going on it just makes it easier to be able to take care of that before the event begins. I would definitely recommend Sam Hill to anyone interested in booking a band in the future.

I had heard people rave about The Free before the wedding, and they certainly did not disappoint. I could not have asked for a better group of people to make the wedding what it was. I keep saying I want to do it every weekend now to just get someone to pay for that!
Thank you again for helping me plan the wedding of my dreams :)

I may be a little biased, but The Free is the best band ever!! We had multiple guests ask for their info. The vocalists were extremely talented, had a ton of energy and kept the guests dancing all night. Sam Hill Entertainment was very easy to work with and always prompt to respond. I highly recommend The Free! Our wedding would definitely had not been the same without them.

We had a great time with The Free at our wedding. All our guests are still talking about them, and our wedding was two months ago! We wanted a band that could play both country music and the Hora, and they nailed both. Also, our first dance and fatherdaughter dance wasn't on their official song list, but they were very accommodating, and the timing during their playing of our first dance coincidentally matched up perfectly with our dance routine!

My client was thrilled with The Free they were amazing!!! I had no idea what to expect...omg! Their energy is incredible and the way they engage the audience is totally different from anything I've seen. I think Kathy and her friends were dancing harder than anyone else! I think it's an amazing sign when guests are super sweaty and wishing for more.
Ryan, Samm and Genevieve (and all) were super nice, polite and easy to deal with. So accommodating and nice. Also, Genevieve was awesome about working with me on a couple of timing things that changed last minute. They are total professionals and so talented!
I hope I can recommend them again sometime soon.

Hi Beth!!
Thank you so much for reaching out and for the congratulations. We had an AMAZING night and The Free is incredible. What an insanely talented group of people.
I couldn't have been more pleased with the way the night went everyone was so friendly and you can tell their number one concern is making sure the guests have a blast. Genevieve was also great about checking into a song on the do not play list that was part of a medley, which I appreciated and of course told her to play! I know Eric said the groomsmen really enjoyed meeting the band before the wedding and had a good time with them. The songs chosen were great and diverse and got everyone dancing, and I thought the vocals were super a few people said they thought they were at a concert rather than a wedding. We'd happily refer anyone to use The Free for their event I'll keep you guys in mind for some charity events I work with, too! I loved that the dance floor was consistently packed, so that's a testament to the team :) And we'll definitely add reviews to The Knot too as things settle.
Thank you again and please let all the members know that we had a wonderful night and they were a huge part of it. Some of our friends and family have already looked into them for future events of their own which is great! We hope to see them at another event soon!

The band, The Free, was excellent at my daughters wedding March 3, 2018. Everyone enjoyed all the style music that they played and they even learned Maria & Drews first dance song. They interacted with the whole crowd and we've heard praises constantly since the wedding about the band! They had everyone out on the dance floor including my brotherinlaw in his wheelchair movin to the music! I highly recommend The Free and I highly recommend your company! You all were very professional and very communicative. Thank You!

We worked with Andy from Sam Hill to find the perfect band for our wedding. Andy suggested many great options and was very easy to work with. After a lot of research, we selected THE FREE which was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! We were looking for a band that could play a good mix of songs, including acoustic music during cocktail hour and our first dance song by Zac Brown Band. They were incredible and kept everyone dancing all night long! Getting a good band like this costed a bit more than we wanted to pay, but in the end, we were so happy and had such a good time thanks to their great talent!

We hired The Free for our wedding and OMG we cannot say enough good things about them. This band is 1,000x better than their online promotion video and recordings show them to be! I had people coming up to me all night raving about the band, asking where did I find them? They really know how to create a fun atmosphere and they are insanely talented. SO MUCH BETTER than we ever expected, and so much better in person than online. If you are considering booking them, do not hesitate another minute.

Hi Beth! The Free was AMAZING. I have to say, they were WAY better in person than their promotional video and online recordings made them out to be. I had people coming up to me all night saying how awesome the band was and asking how/where I found them! They were also super easy to work with. I will definitely leave a positive review on the Knot. I honestly could not be happier, thank you for providing them as a recommendation!

Hi Andrew,

Everything went very well with The Free. They did a wonderful job and Tori and I were both extremely pleased with their performance across the board. The music was as good as advertised, and they did a wonderful job pacing the evening and interacting with the guests. Overall, if you ever need a recommendation to another client interested in The Free, feel free to refer the client to me. I would be happy to compliment them further!

If we have an event in the future that requires a band, we will certainly look in your direction!

Have a great day!

The Free was OUTSTANDING. They were exactly what we hoped for in a wedding band energetic, fun, great musicians and really got the crowd going. The versatility they offered was amazing, I heard from many guests that they were the best wedding band they've ever seen and I agree! We spent so much time on the dance floor that I worry I didn't speak to the guests enough ;)
Thank you so much for your help in arranging everything. It was the perfect night made better by The Free.

Not only are they great musicians, but also great people and we will definitely recommend them to anyone getting married or holding special events in the future.

Ashleigh and I can sum up our experience with The Free in one word: AMAZING! Honestly, we had so much fun and the band was incredible. First and foremost, they are extremely talented and their interaction with our guests was an added bonus. I don’t think we had a single guest that didn’t comment on how good the band was that night, so everyone was thoroughly entertained. Some even said they would want to bring them up to Canada to perform at their weddings when it was their turn.

We will definitely leave reviews and recommend The Free to our friends and family. They were so good, you may want to think about increasing their price! =p

We would have thanked them over and over again on our wedding night, but please do pass along our thanks to them again. They were a big part of our special night and we will forever have fond memories.

I communicated with Annie leading up to the wedding and she was very nice to work with. The band chose great songs for the dinner portion of our evening and did an awesome job choosing upbeat, fun songs once we got into the dancing portion of the night. I know all of our guests had a good time along with my husband and I :)
I made sure to do a review online for Sam Hill Entertainment and I mentioned your work along with The Free. We really appreciate your help and your constant communication. I thought the process was very smooth and loved our overall experience. Thank you again for all you did and if you have any other questions for us, please don't hesitate to ask!
Thanks so much,

Wow where do I even begin? It was beyond incredible. The charisma and energy they exuded really set the tone. The singers had a great way about them and bc they were enjoying themselves it was like watching a killer concert.
I also loved that they read the crowd very well. I didn't really want slow songs and I love that I didn't have to say that they just knew the crowd wanted to dance.
Also their voices were absolutely beautiful. People are still talking about it and my wedding planner said you guys are now his new go to and a friend of mine will be calling you soon to play for her wedding.:)
The band was the first thing we booked and honestly the most important part to us and you guys nailed it.
I cannot thank you all enough for being genuine and ensuring everyone had a good time. Also, thank you for learning the song for the father daughter dance. It was absolutely perfect.

Andrew, I do not know where to start. The Free were unbelievable. Worth every penny and a million more (I don’t have a million dollars, but if I did I’d have paid it in thanks and support of their incredible talent). And as you know, when it comes to music, I'm a tough critic. As a former musician, finding the right band to play at my wedding was not unlike finding the right man to marry. I trawled through just about every band in the northern hemisphere before I found 'the one' and when I did, suffice it to say it was love at first sound. THE FREE are incredible. They surpassed all expectations. So versatile; so energetic; so insanely talented! They got every one of our guests on their feet and the compliments have since been overwhelming. I don't review typically, but I will break the internet with my praise for these guys, and yourselves; y’all about made our wedding.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Hey Andy!!
I think I speak for my whole family, The Free exceeded our expectations. They were constantly interacting with the audience and made Lee and I feel like we were celebrities. Their energy was felt by everyone and created exactly the fun atmosphere we were looking for. Besides being tremendously talented (which we'd expecte from a Sam Hill band), they were enthusiastic about being part of our wedding and constantly checking in with me, as the bride, to make sure I was having fun and a good time. They did a wonderful rendition for our first dance song. Lee and I watch almost video everyday, and each time Lee comments on how fantastic they performed it. All the guests raved about The Free, and I cannot imagine my wedding day without The Free being a part of it.
Thank you so much for making that happen for us Andy. The Free is a big part of what made our day so incredibly special, besides the whole marrying the love of my life :). I will definitely be recommending the use of Sam Hill Entertainment to any future brides I know in the Cville area!

The Free were, to put it mildly, amazing. They are incredibly talented and both their shows were topnotch in terms of sound, quality and showmanship. The client and their guests did not want them to end either night!
In addition to their talent in putting on excellent shows, they were wonderful to work with in terms of limitations by the venue space, accommodations for their green room and changes to the schedule. They were so incredible and understanding of everything and it made my life so much easier, especially in the heat of the moment of things changing (as they always do onsite).
Please let them know again, how much we appreciate all they did for us, the client and their guests! I hope we get the chance to work together again soon as well. Thank you for the compliments regarding our team, that's great to hear; I'll be sure to pass it along to them.

Hi Andy,

We wrote a review below that we are going to add to every site we can find. We had an amazing experience with The Free and could not have asked for a better band to play our wedding. They were incredibly friendly, talented and brought so much energy and enthusiasm. Definitely a 10 out of 10. I know Sally, Courtney and Kristina had a lot do to with this, but it was totally smooth getting on the Island or setting up and everything looked and sounded perfect. We would appreciate if you could send the contact info of the band as well as we would like to send them a thank you for really adding such much to our wedding
From the moment we met them, we knew The Free were going to be an amazing band. After the opening dances, I spoke with the lead singer and he seemed as happy to have made the venture to our wedding as we were to be there. The Free learned songs for our wedding without us even requesting them and those songs sounded amazing. Once dinner was complete and everyone hit the dance floor, no one left. The Free had a wide range of songs and kept the energy at a very high level for the entire set. They were incredibly creative with mashups of songs and got the audience involved with some fun dances. When two of our friends asked to sing a song, The Free were very accommodating and turned it into an incredibly memorable moment for everyone. In the weeks after the wedding, it seemed like every guest we talked to told us that it was the best wedding band they have seen and how amazingly well the band had played. There were also more than a few #bestweddingbandever hashtags on facebook.

From the day we started looking for a band, the folks at Sam Hill were very helpful and the entire process of having the band travel from Atlanta to Bald Head Island was seamless and easy. There was great communication and organization amongst everyone and not a single problem despite the fact that the band had to do all that travel and take a ferry over to the venue.

Overall we couldn’t have been more pleased with The Free and Sam Hill Entertainment. The Free brought an already amazing wedding to another level and we were so happy that they were able to play such a great part in our fantastic day.

Hi Annie & Beth,
Since you both emailed I thought it might be easiest to just send this to both of you.
My apologies for the delay in response, we were out of the country for two wonderful weeks and are now settling back in at home. I cannot say enough good things about the Free, in fact most of what I've heard since the wedding from anyone who was there sounds something like Everything about the day was perfect and beautiful and we had the best time, and YOUR BAND!!! They were amazing! Where did you find them?! I even received a few texts the day after the wedding asking for contact information, so I think it's safe to say The Free was definitely a hit.
Everyone danced the whole night and loved all of the music, the band absolutely has a knack for gauging the atmosphere and playing the appropriate songs. Both the playlist and their amount of crowd interaction were dead on. People kept saying they were so perfect for us and it was true, I felt like they suited Ryan's and my taste and the overall vibe of the wedding and venue so perfectly!
Thanks again for being such an important part of our day,
Michelle

All of our friends (whether local to Atlanta or in from New York/Boston) raved about how they were the best they've ever heard. I didn't want the night to end!! I will of course recommend them anytime I can.
Tell them thank you again for such an amazing night. It was perfection.
I believe one of the singers told me where to follow them on Instagram and tag them in photos but I forgot! if you have that and can pass along I'd love it!
Thank you!

The Free was absolutely fantastic!! We loved them, all our wedding guests loved them, and most importantly Kristen and Taylor said they made the reception! No one wanted the night to end.

My experience with the band was fabulous and we are so thankful that we chose The Free to perform at the wedding. They exceeded our expectations. Their sound musically and vocally was terrific and their stage presence was engaging. All the guests were raving about them. Fabulous energy.
The music that they performed and the sound level during the meal time was
perfect for listening but also for hearing conversations. Spot on!
Then the songs they played during the rest of the time were great and kept the
guests dancing, laughing and having fun.
My only complaint is that they were so good that I stayed on the dance floor so much
and did not chat with guests as much as maybe I should have. :)
And that is a really a testament to how much fun we all had.
Thank you again. I will for sure recommend them to others.

We could not have been happier with our experience with you and The Free. Every single song the band played was top notch and they had incredible energy & professionalism throughout the evening. That night & the following day we had so many guests tell us how great the band was and how much they enjoyed them.
Since The Free was a newer band when we booked them, we had a small bit of concern that they might not sound as good as the demo music. I couldn't believe how they surpassed the demo with their live performanceand I can be a tough critic since I have a music background.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to The Free for being such a special part of our wedding reception. Our only regret of the night was that the venue had a curfew preventing us from having them play longer!

Sorry it has taken me so long to get this to you.
In short we WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING!
We started out knowing we wanted a live band as one of the most important elements of our wedding from the beginning. You guys and your team didn't disappoint. While I must say I was a bit apprehensive to spend such a large portion of our budget on a band unseen or having known anyone personally who had experience their talents I am SO SO glad we trusted in our gut and your professionalism.
Also, have to share a quick story while my husband and I knew we wanted live music at the reception neither of us are big dancers. It was really more for setting the mood of our reception that we wanted this aspect verse a D.J. With that said we didn't sit down the entire night and danced with all our guest all night long. So fun, so sweet, such good memories, and every guest since the wedding has commented on how fun The Free was. My husband and I have been out dancing twice since our wedding and I think its our new fun connection as a married couple :) thank you for that!
Lastly, by way of scheduling slow down before the wedding my husband and the band ended up interacting with each other in the location we had set up for the grooms suite/break room and he had nothing but wonderful things to say about their personal interaction as well. Stand up group of entertainers. Now, all I need is another event to book them for!! Until then they will be highly recommended by us. Best luck with all of your individual and personal endeavors in the future!

Sometimes when you hear bands they make you twinge with their rendition of a classic song, but not the Free, as they made you want to hear them sing each one.They worked well with the wedding planner as she gave instructions, they set up with no fuss, broke down quickly and quietly. My ipad was returned promptly without having to be asked.
The morning after the wedding I went to the same clubhouse to eat dinner, as I stayed an extra night at Big Canoe. The head of the kitchen/waitress staff came up to us all excited. Said to me that usually at weddings they see people maybe dance for a half hour then it is done, but at ours people danced to the very end. They said it was the most exciting they had seen, the most diverse group of people, and the most fun they had experienced. When I thought back to the prior evening ,I could see them in the alcoves with smiles on their faces and moving to the beat in place.
The Free was great. I would not have changed a thing. I gave them a tip I liked them so much. I took some of their cards and will recommend them to others. It was a great choice. The bride and groom also had a blast!
Thank you, Mrs Zwolinski

Andrew,
The Free were absolutely, positively fantastic!!! We literally searched high and low and for months for a wedding band that felt right. We spent hours upon hours!!!! When we heard The Free we knew we had found the perfect band we loved their sound! Although I was a little skeptical that they were a new band Andrew assured me that they had great roots! I am so glad we trusted our guts because they were absolute Rock Stars!!!
They had everyone on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG! They played the perfect mix of oldies, country, modern, etc.The two lead singers were so fun and engaging and outgoing!!! All of our guests raved all night long about the band (and still are)! We had an outdoor mountain wedding and The Free was the perfect fit for our feel and vibe.
Everyone associated with the band was incredibly professional. Annie was so awesome to work with. My wedding planner was so impressed that the lead guys approached her on the day of to review the timeline in entirety one last time. There set up and sound check was seamless and they had someone adjusting the sounds via the ipad all night long! They did an awesome job of introductions despite the fact there were several long Italian names. Per our request they seamless downloaded and played our First Dance song and Father Daughter dance from a device (our preference).
Even more impressive every band member was so genuinely nice and friendly. After dinner the band spaced their breaks and literally played nonstop, staggering their breaks so the party never stopped. They were genuinely great people.
I totally recommend The Free and they were one of the best decisions we made! Please share my contact info with other brides looking for a reference.
Congrats on starting an amazing band and best of luck to you!
Please let me know where else I can share this review as I would love to promote this band!
Thank you!
Kristin

Hi Beth,
The Free was absolutely wonderful!!! I cannot say enough nice things about them. We loved them! The music was great, and everyone there had a great time. No one wanted the band to stop playing they were so much fun! Kaitlyn knew exactly what kind of music she liked and wanted to have played at the reception, and no other band could have come close to doing the job they did. She and her new husband Jacob stayed the whole night to enjoy them! I have had so many people compliment us on the band and ask who they are and how we found them, and I am passing their name along to all who ask. The band members were very sweet and friendly they were so nice to deal with. They were fabulous, and we would use them a milllion times over. We are so thankful we found them, and our entire experience with them and the booking experience has been impeccable. Thank you for such a fun and flawless experience!
Beth

Hi Beth,
We loved the Free. The music was great, lots of people dancing. In fact, people were putting down their food (and it was delicious!!) to go out on the dance floor.
We had several people say to us “best wedding band i’ve ever heard”.
so, they get 5 stars from us!!
thanks
Lisa

Hey Beth,
Sorry for the delay things have been hectic since we have returned!!
We LOVED the band and everyone who attended the wedding loved them. I have heard nothing but great things from all of our guests and Brandon and I really enjoyed them. I am so glad we chose them to help us celebrate our marriage! I would recommend them to anyone.
Thanks,

The Free performed at our event in Atlanta this past fall and on top of being an amazing team to work with, they had all the talent and then some! They are perfect for getting the dance floor going and keeping it maintained all night. An awesome addition to your wedding or event!

This was one of the best bands I have seen in a very long time! Anyone looking to book them for a corporate gig, wedding entertainment or party, this is the group! Getting 400 financial planners on the dance floor for nearly 3 hours speaks volumes of their talent!
