  • Doug and his band was an amazing addition to our wedding. My husband and I are both musicians and we wanted a great live band that could do a variety of styles and keep the party going. We threw so many curve balls at Doug and his band--- both my husband and I wanted to do last minute performances, my maids of honor performed a song--- and Doug MADE IT HAPPEN BEAUTIFULLY. Our first dance was to a very not well known song--- and it was flawless and amazing. Every musician in the band was incredibly talented and had heart. They all made our day incredibly special. I cannot recommend Doug Winters Music/Best Kept Secret enough. You cannot go wrong. Thanks, Doug!!!

  • The best expense of the wedding! This band got the party going within 3 minutes. Everyone was out on the dance floor from the first song through the night begging them not to stop. I can hear a good voice but multiple musicians at the party told me they were flawless in every instrument across the board. Thank you for the best day and wedding I have ever been a part of.

  • Doug Winters / Best Kept Secret was spectacular at my wedding! They had the dance floor PACKED even before our bridal party was introduced at the very beginning of the reception! Doug was a pleasure to work with during the planning process, and his and his band are so incredibly talented. They listened to our requests and truly made the evening so special for us. Throughout the 4 hour reception, the dance floor was packed. Even the solos that were performed during dinner took my breath away. I had to stop walking around greeting people at one point to just watch them sing and take it all in! My family and I are so happy to have had them play at our wedding, and we were complimented on them throughout the evening by our guests and by the manager of the club. I highly recommend Doug Winters' Best Kept Secret, they were amazing!!!

  • Forever grateful to Doug Winter's Music Band for he was amazing from our initial contact prior to booking, to the last song of the night! He was receptive to our needs and a great listener with lots of great ideas too. He played the perfect music with perfect acoustics for the Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception. He had our guests dancing from the moment they entered the Reception. We had a packed dance floor with our guests saying over and over that this was the best Event Band they have ever heard. They were able to play and sing every special song we needed. From the teenage guests to the 93 year old Grandma, our dance floor was rocking all night! He coordinated the night's events seamless, just like we wanted. His vocalists and musicians were incredibly talented and sooo much fun. They lifted the energy of the entire Reception venue. It is true that 'The Music' is at the top of the list to make a wedding perfect and this was true with our wedding! We could not have been more plea... Read more

  • 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!

  • 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 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!

  • 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!
