  • Last Friday August 2, I married the love of my life and for me that was enough. I found Jules and he was -- and is -- all I ever needed to be happy. It was all I thought I'd need for my version of a fairy-tale wedding. We had thought, early on, that we'd have a city hall kind of low-key ceremony with a dinner after but my parents really wanted to celebrate because I was the last (and oldest) daughter getting married in our family. So I went on auto-pilot and let my mom and the planner do whatever they wanted and that turned out to be the "big wedding thing" -- the big dress, the beautiful venue, and they pulled out all the stops and to our complete surprise, it was amazing. And when we look back on it, most of all, what made it all so perfect was our band. And especially, our bandleader, Doug Winters. What is so fantastic about Doug is how far out of his way he will go to make you feel cared about, important, comfortable, completely informed with all of our needs totally taken ca... Read more

  • 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 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.

  • We were referred to Doug Winters by a friend who had been to a wedding where the band had played. As soon as we spoke with Doug on the phone to introduce ourselves to see if he would be available to play at our wedding, we knew it was a great match. His positive energy and enthusiasm for music made working with him such a blast. Doug was always available whenever we needed to hop on a call and he had amazing advice on all music related parts of the day. Even our wedding planner told us how much she liked working with Doug because he was more organized than any other band she'd worked with before. When we finally met him at the reception he did not disappoint! Everyone was up and dancing the entire reception. Even days after the wedding we had friends and family calling us to tell us how amazing the band was and how much fun they had. Thank you, Doug, for living up to your reputation and making sure we had the best night ever. It wouldn't have been the same without you! If you're lookin... Read more

  • Doug and his team were a God send. I planned a 120 person wedding in 2 months, and the least of my worries was the band! Doug worked with me on budget, the evening's itinerary, including details of ceremony music, special requests, all the way to the end with an after party! Now that is just the planning. The band executed with professionalism and literally had people asking me who they were and where I found them -- all night! So I had to explain that they were God sent. I cannot recommend Doug & the Best Kept Secret in any higher terms. YOU WANT THEM. TRUST ME. They will make your night! I'm still in the after glow of the glory! THANK YOU!!!

  • We loved working with Doug Winters and his band, all total pros. He and the whole team showed generosity and panache, and most of all showed that they know how to put on a real party. The band could read the room, and kept our guests on the dance-floor. We only wish we could've had them play until dawn. And though we've never even met the guy, we consider Doug a new friend. We cannot recommend the Doug Winters band more highly. — Emily & Martin

  • We had a terrific time dancing to the music of The Doug Winters Band at our daughter's wedding. The music was so much fun to dance to and the band members read the crowd well. The dance floor was packed all night long with all ages having a great time. We highly recommend this band and enjoyed working with them in the months preceding the wedding.

  • Doug Winters was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. A friend had recommended him and his band saying they had "made their daughter's wedding." My son's wedding was 2 days ago and we are all still in the glow of it and what a fantastic party it was thanks in large part to Doug. He is knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way and delivers a polished professional band. They played all of the hot dance music from any era you want plus the hot summer hits from right now. The singers sounded terrific and our guests danced and danced and sang and partied the night away.

  • The only thing that can match Doug Winters enthusiasm is the amazing music that Best Kept Secret was playing during our wedding. Doug made planning the music part of the wedding painless, and I LOVED talking to him. I requested he learn some songs for us which he was more than happy to do, and Best Kept Secret played them flawlessly. They were able to make last minute changes on the day of with amazing results. I forgot to mention to Doug that our venue had a piano where we held the cocktail hour; he asked me if I wanted him to play it about an hour before the cocktail hour started. He did a fantastic job, as did Best Kept Secret did during the reception itself! Literally every single person that I talked to LOVED the music - A couple of people mentioned it was the best wedding band they'd ever heard. They got everyone moving both for fast and slow dancing, and played a very wide variety of different music. The dance floor was full at almost all times. My bride told me th... Read more

  • My husband has preached the Three B's to our four daughters since they began dreaming of their future wedding days: Best Friends, Bar and BAND. Doug Winters delivered a huge sound from the band. He brought 3 singers and 8 musicians to our wedding (the horn section was tremendous value add) They began by playing a set as everyone walked into the tent. From that moment on it was hard to get people to sit. All they wanted to do is be on the floor for 4 hours dancing to Doug's band. My husband declared in his father of the bride toast, "We have all our best friends here tonight, the bar is never going to run out of liquor and we have the BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!" The crowd went nuts! Book Doug today for your wedding celebration. Count your blessings if he is available. You deal with Doug directly so there is no overhead charge and you know just what you are getting. He's is a steal- and his music will steal the hearts of you and your guests. We can't wait until our next wedding! Doug wil... Read more

  • Doug was amazing to work with... We had several special requests and he was able to accommodate every one of them! Our dance floor was filled the entire night and our guests are still raving about how great the band was! My own feet are still recovering from all the dancing I did. Recommending the band to all my friends who have upcoming weddings just so we can party with them again :)

  • I got the pleasure of working with Doug and his band this past weekend. Guest were pulling me aside and telling me how great they were. They never skipped a beat and so flexible to work with. One of the singers got on the dance floor and started singing and dancing with one of the guest. One of the best bands in the area! Loved It!!

  • Doug Winters is a very talented musician. He is extremely easy to work with and provides a lot of one on one time before the wedding to understand what the couple desires for their wedding entertainment. I planed my wedding myself and booking this band was the best choice I made. Everything worked seamlessly with no added stress. I received many band compliments from my guests and most said that Doug Winters made the wedding fantastic. I would highly recommend booking him if you want live music and a very memorable experience.

  • What people remember about an event and wedding is the party. Music makes the party. Doug and his band were completely awesome. They kept all the guest on the dance floor the entire night. I highly recommend them.
