    Doug Winter and his group were excellent. They played the music we requested without our having to specify individual songs. They captured the mood of the environment. The volume was perfect. I would hire them again.

    The Doug Winters band was the best decision I made for my wedding! They are SO much fun and sound absolutely amazing. All of us had to keep reminding ourselves that it was live music because the singers sounded so much like the original artists. At several points, the singers came out into the crowd and sang surrounded by the crowd - it was exhilarating and a blast. Don't hesitate - book this band today.

    As a wedding and event planner, working with Doug was an absolute pleasure. Aside from his amazing ability to personally connect with the client, and his super duper fast responsiveness to all of my emails and requests, him and his team really KEPT THE PARTY JUMPING! The band was AMAZING, they interacted with the crowd and it felt like you were at a concert. Consummate professionals with hip and cool personalities is an understatement for "The Best Kept Secret". I really look forward to working together again to make magic happen for our clients! :-)
