  • 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."

  • We looked at way too many bands when we first got engaged. But the moment we heard Doug Winters Music, he and his band stood out from the very packed crowd of pretty good available bands in our area. Doug is so much more than that. He's a gifted musician and the band dazzles with the singers and players' incredible music. Doug is really unusually helpful, understanding and always accessible, so my wife and I never worried about anything having to do with music from the moment we signed the contract. GREAT price (he worked with us to make it affordable); UNBELIEVABLE music that keeps the party exciting all night; and OUTSTANDING customer service and attention to detail. The best band we've ever heard and the best guy to work with --he's not like a "regular" vendor -- don't hesitate one second to book them. You will love them!

  • My husband and I happen to come from families who love celebrating and especially, love to dance. We needed a band that would understand and deliver. And Doug Winters and his band, way more than delivered. Although Doug and his partner and wife, Sari, constantly begged us for song choices, we left everything up to him. I have a very demanding sales job and my husband is working on his dissertation, so we were really thrilled to have someone as expert and talented as Doug completely "take over." I know this is quite unusual! But we knew we could trust Doug -- he has such spectacular word-of-mouth awareness, we basically gave him suggestions and trusted him and he was brilliant. Having said that, we did speak and text each other extensively during the months before the wedding about the kinds of music my husband and I both loved and Doug made it happen! His singers are versatile and warm, and constantly engaging with the crowd. Doug is the ultimate emcee, he has a beautiful voice and he... Read more

  • Doug and his band played at our wedding in September and they killed it. From my first encounter with Doug, we were bowled over with his honesty and expansive knowledge of weddings, planning and of course, music. He's a phenomenal keyboard player but perhaps his greatest talent is his ability to "read the room" and just KNOW what will work. He made our wedding the greatest party we could have ever dreamed of. If you want to dance all night, THIS is the band for you. We cannot recommend him more highly. His wife, who was our initial contact, is terrific, as well. She helped us negotiate a great fee, But in retrospect, Doug and Best Kept Secret are worth way beyond what we paid. We'll never be able to thank them enough! P.S. we also went for the string quartet we wanted for the ceremony and they were awesome.

  • My wife and I just got married on November 27th and are heading off for our honeymoon but we had to write about how unbelievable Doug and his band were. Doug gave us non-stop dancing all night, the best song selection and all the hand-holding my then-fiancee need. Doug is so experienced and knowledgeable about weddings, he was not only a hugely talented bandleader and keyboard player but he also became the wedding planner we didn't hire! That, in itself speaks volumes about Doug's wide-ranging expertise; it was no surprise he also does a podcast about weddings. We're just so grateful for his commitment to us throughout the process and his and the band's performance at our wedding. Out of all the people we contracted for our wedding at my grandparents' beautiful home, Doug delivered the most, truly going way above and beyond anything we could have ever hoped. People danced all night, thanks to Doug's keen ability to read the crowd. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Doug Winters!

  • Over the past ten years, my family has used this phenomenal band for my wedding (just this past October), my brother's, and two of my cousins. Doug is like a treasured family friend. My cousin used him first ten years ago and they were absolutely incredible. I held onto his business card for almost a decade. At every wedding he has proven himself to be the "real deal" and so has his incredible band, Best Kept Secret. His amazing vocalists go out of their way to interact with guests and they sing their hearts out. And the singers were all the same as they were almost ten years ago. If it's possible, they were better at every wedding and my husband and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Doug promised me he'd keep the dance floor packed because that was what was most important to us and he did! He really knows how to read the crowd and he and his wife and partner, Sari, worked closely with us on song selection from the very first day --until the wedding -- and they exemplify the mea...

  • Doug and his band learned so much special music for my wedding. He and his band were unforgettable. They played at a friend's wedding that I was a bridesmaid in in 2016. Doug went above and beyond to make our wedding a real party. He gave us a celebration that was really exactly what we wanted...he really listened to everything we wanted, including the songs we specifically did not want to hear, which was a surprisingly long list! But they were totally fabulous and it was all thanks to Doug. We apologize that we are so late in responding. We were married last January! But we just got a holiday card from him!

  • 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!

  • 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!!

  • Where do I begin?? Doug became what felt like a member of my family before I ever met him and his band. My husband and I had hired Doug and the band without ever hearing them play live- and it was best decision we ever made. From the first conversation with Doug he made me feel at ease, answering any questions I had whether it was about the music or any other part of the wedding. He was available whenever I needed him, late night texts or weekend phone calls- it was always welcomed. Doug ended up feeling more like my event planner in the end and had great advice for us on how to best to set up the day. When our wedding day finally came, his band exceeded even my highest expectations. They were fabulous and the party started from the very first song and went all night. Our guests didn’t sit down all night! The amount of energy and talent these guys have is unlike any wedding band I have ever heard. As if my husband and I weren’t impressed enough, our wedding guests are stil... Read more

  • What's so special about Doug Winters Music? He is a phenomenal musician and one of the loveliest humans I've ever gotten to know. And his band is so highly spirited and full of talent, they set the mood for four hours of unforgettable celebration. Before the wedding, he was always available to talk (sometimes for 90 minutes!) as he steered us in the right direction about music. And while everything at the wedding wasn't totally perfect, it doesn't matter. We will always look back at this night with tremendous affection for Doug and his band, who more than made up for it. My brother just got engaged and they already booked him...for 2021!

  • It was like love at first call and I’m not talking about the person I married. Doug was so personable and easy to work with and we hit it off the first time we spoke. After hearing their music on YouTube and having great recommendations I knew he was the band to go with. We stayed in constant contact through out the whole planning process and he even learned a whole bunch of songs we wanted because he wants to make your day extremely personal and special. The day of was no different and he and the band killed it! We had people coming up to us if they weren’t on the dance floor asking where we found him and how great the music was. Go with Doug Winters if you want the best party ever!

  • Doug's band played for my brother's wedding and we loved the group so much that we hired them for ours. He got everyone on the dance floor and the music was amazing. The musicians he works with are true professionals and they sounded incredible! We requested some Latin songs, which they were able to learn, and it really made the night special for us. Highly recommended if you want someone who will really bring the energy for your event!
