  • Doug Winters Music/Best Kept Secret is HANDS DOWN the BEST Wedding band out there. They played everything we asked and more, even if it wasn't on their playlist. They even learned a song on the fly during the wedding so my wife could sing! Every band member is great. Doug is the most professional band leader, he was the only band leader we met with, and we hired his band on the spot. All of Doug's suggestions were great and made the day so special for everyone. All of our guests said they were one of the best bands they've ever heard. Whether it was Bruce Springsteen or Montell Jordan every song sounded great. The dance floor was packed from beginning to end. Hire this band if you want your wedding to be as good as ours was! Thanks for everything Doug!

  • Doug is great to work with. He listens and makes suggestions on how to make what you want even better. As people walked into the reception, they just started dancing. The floor was filled all night. Doug and his band can "feel" where the crowd is and he just keeps the party going. Not once did he need to ask people to dance, there was no need to, they were already up and dancing. Doug and his band were a major factor in the success of the wedding. We cannot recommend him highly enough. Everyone who has called us after the wedding has mentioned how great the music was. They are right!

  • Thanks to Doug Winters--our wedding felt like a party. It was amazing to see have so many of our friends and relatives up on the dance floor with us--we basically didn't have to go table to table to make the rounds because we were able to spend time with everyone on the dance floor! Doug works with you from the very first time you contact him--he even responded to a request that I sent the night before the event! He listens to all of your ideas, and tells you which ones will work, even the ones you think won't, and has suggestions for how to make everything even better. My husband and I had a fairly esoteric first dance song, which they learned very well! Doug not only lead his amazing band and made sure the music was top notch, but he kept the party kept the evening going smoothly, and had great ideas on how to time the speeches and special dances to avoid breaking the flow of the evening. The father daughter dance was sort of an inside joke, and Doug suggested (though it wasn't pl... Read more

  • Doug Winters band played at my wedding in New Canaan 6/21/14. They knocked it out of the park, our guests were going nuts dancing and the floor was packed the entire evening. It was by far the best $ I spent. I heard them play at a friend's wedding and I knew immediately I would hire them for the same reason, they had unbelievably awesome energy and momentum, never did the evening drag as can happen in so many weddings. Kept the floor packed all night. Loved the variety in what they played, they managed to nail every song, from the classics (Neil Diamond) to the contemporary stuff (Daft Punk). Each of the players brings a bit of different variety so they don't play the same type of music all night. Their song list is extensive and the one song I wanted to play not on there they learned and played which was a huge hit! One of the best parts about working with this band is Doug. We communicated throughout the entire process. Doug loves what he does, he knows how to read a crowd, ... Read more

  • This band is truly the best kept secret. What a find. Professional from beginning to end. A great value. But, most of all Doug and his band of talented musicians know exactly how to make a wedding party dance all night - no breaks! With very little effort on our part, Doug was able to determine the kind of music that would entice everyone and I mean everyone at our daughter's wedding get up and move! Doug met with us beforehand to look over the venue. He worked with the Bride and Groom to help them come up with music for the ceremony and cocktail hour as well as for the reception. Doug answers e-mails and phone calls immediately and spends a great deal of time getting to know the people who hire him. He is a one in a million! The entire band interacted with our guests and made us feel very special, and connected! Thank you Doug and your band for making Molly and Alex's wedding extra special. We could not have imagined finding a better band!

  • Brides and Grooms, If I was able to give 10s across the board I would. DougWinters is the best and incomparable to the band leaders and bands that are out there, Not only was I crazed with making sure everything was (perfect) (I bet you dont know how that feels) but I was concerned with how all of my guests would feel. As a musician and the daughter of a renowned musician, there was NO greater investment we made than to have the best kept secret play. Doug overlooked NO detail and can do this in his sleep--- yet makes you feel like you are the only bride on earth, He has been doing this for years but is full of youth and has a great spirit, EVERY song we selected was cd quality and as we danced our first dances there wasnt a dry eye in the room. With the utmost confidence and sincerity I can vouch for doug, his remarkable band and his willingness to work with his clients, He is one and a million and frankly due to the complments we recieved through facebook, email, calls etc, ...

  • Best Kept Secret and Doug Winters were an absolute pleasure to work with. They played awesome music and my wedding guests were dancing all night long. They were terrific and I have no regrets at all about working with them. They were worth every penny.

  • The and was amazing during the reception. They really kept the party flowing and people danced all night! The lead singer was excellent. My only problems I had were the order of my songs during the ceremony got a bit mixed up and the owner was a bit opinionated at times. But my husband spoke to him and then everything was smooth sailing again. Check out their video you won't be sorry
