    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!

    The best band you'll find anywhere!

    Doug Winters and his band are so amazing, I wish I could give them a ten star review. From the very beginning, Doug was warm, kind and endlessly accommodating. We had a very eclectic playlist and Doug and the band flawlessly learned everything we wanted. And when it came to the wedding, they outdid themselves. They put out incredible passion and energy and Doug and the musicians and singers over-the-top outdid themselves. The music was flawlessly perfect and Doug, as he promised, kept the dance floor packed all night long. If you want excellence beyond anything you can imagine and soulful, hot can't-sit-down music all night, choose the band that will have everyone saying, "the band was the best band we've ever heard." Most of all, YOU will get everything you have dreamt the music at your wedding could be. Doug Winters Music is extraordinary -- and like he did with us, he will become your favorite vendor. He became more like family to us; he and his band are "simply the best."

    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! :-)
