    Surprise BDay Party

    I can’t say enough positive things about Doug and his band. Doug was accessible and accommodating throughout leading up to the event. They had our guests up and dancing throughout the evening and were an absolute highlight. Doug also helped me with a lot of the planning around the party in areas outside of the music. He has a ton of experience and is happy to share with amateurs (like me). Doug is a great guy and a terrific musician. Would use him again no questions asked!

    Best band EVER!

    The Doug Winters Band is truly amazing--working with Doug was an incredible experience and we felt so taken care of and understood. He was a great listener and he went above and beyond to make our vision come true! He and his band were an integral part of making our wedding day such a memorable, magical, incredible experience. Everyone couldn’t stop talking about how great they were and still talk about it to this day!! They kept people on the dance floor all night long and were interactive with the crowd which we loved. The band even had learned a few songs just for us :) It was truly a pleasure to work with them and I couldn't recommend the Doug Winters Band more!!

    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! :-)
