    Thank you, doug winters!

    We just got married last weekend and are about to leave for our honeymoon but we had to thank Doug Winters Music before taking off. You were the best vendor of everyone we hired! The venue and the food were outstanding, but Doug Winters Music was flawless. Thank you for all the time you spent helping us plan our wedding and for totally "bringing it" on the night of... you totally MADE THE WEDDING the crazy success it was! Your energy and that of the band's was so infectious, everyone keeps saying the "room was filled with love!" My new husband and I didn't hop from table to table, we found everyone on the dance floor and danced and celebrated with them. It was so perfect, Doug read the room perfectly and you knocked it out of the park. Thank you for everything! Your phone must be ringing off the hook -- everyone keeps asking us, where did you find these guys? You delivered everything you promised -- and SO MUCH MORE! We can never thank you enough!

    Doug Winters Music/Best Kept Secret's reply:

    Thank Ava You were amazing. It was so gratifying seeing how happy you and Frank looked on the dance floor all night. And yes....the phone is ringing off the hook. Call me when you get back from your honeymoon. PS Your cousin Ashley is a doll!

    The very best band ever. Loved them.

    I can’t say enough wonderful things about Doug Winters and the Best Kept Secret. Doug is the easiest person to talk with and he is a true professional who knows the business as well as how to make you feel special for whatever affair you are planning. This is the second time we have hired him and his band. When we attended our cousin’s daughter’s wedding many years ago we said, “Wow. This band is the best we have ever heard. They got the crowd dancing all night and the voices and instruments were amazing.” In fact we were so impressed that we hired Doug and his band the following week to play a B’nai Mitzvah for our twins. Ten years went by and our daughter got engaged. We then immediately called Doug and hired him for her wedding. This past weekend we had the wedding and we could not have been more pleased. This band is awesome and your friends and family will be raving about them for years to come. We had a ten piece band with a trumpet and a sax. Amazing. I can’t say enough about this exceptional band. Except don’t wait. Call them today so you can get a contract and secure your date. Doug is the absolute best. And his band is bar none.

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! :-)
