Recipient of GigSalad's "Top Performer" Award of Salt Lake City, Eighth Day plays a wide variety of original and cover songs at private parties and clubs. They began in 2013 after responding to a KSL ad, and have been rocking the valley ever since. They've produced one demo EP and they are currently working on a full length LP. Perhaps the biggest feat of all is that they've managed to consistently practice every week, amidst the crazy demands of school, family, work, and church.
