High energy party band

we bring the life to any event

Formed in 2017 as an acoustic duo, Five Dollar Down has been playing in the Ottawa, Cornwall and New York area for 5 years. In 2022 after a little bit of a slowdown the duo decided to add some members to make a bigger sound. Now we're able to shake the walls of large venues or provide light dinner music as a duo with backing tracks

we love making noise


Make your wedding a time to remember by having a live band. There is nothing in the world that can replace the energy and interaction with your guests like a live band. We also allow "don't play" lists so you don't have that song at your special day. We even clean up pretty nice and spiffy in our suits.

Stuffy to Stunning

Choosing a band for corporate events is hard. There are so many different people at your company with so many different tastes. Have a look at our song list, we're sure you'll find something in there for all your guests.

We love to party!
