  • 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.

  • Doug and his band were phenomenal. Doug was extremely attentive to all of our needs from the start and made every effort to accommodate all of our special requests (including the 8 special songs we requested they perform during our reception. We did a somewhat atraditional wedding to break from the 'hallmarkification' of weddings and Doug was there every step of the way to help make our vision a reality. Doug also made me feel like I was the only bride in the world and had a special way of keeping in touch with me and connecting on a personal level throughout our wedding journey. From the minute Doug took over the mic, we knew we were in great hands. Doug's band executed everything to perfection and seem to really have fun in the process. They were the talk of the night! We highly recommend the Doug Winters Band for any occasion.

  • I heard Doug Winters Music years ago at my brother's wedding and knew immediately that I wanted to use his band for my own wedding. My wedding was just a few weeks ago and we couldn't have asked for a more amazing night! We keep getting so many rave reviews on how great the band was. They had the whole crowd up and dancing the whole entire night. They really made the party! Thank you Doug Winters for making out wedding the most incredible night of our lives!

  • Doug is fantastic and extremely talented. Booking his band was hands-down one of the best wedding-related decisions we made and really defined our wedding. Tons of people came up to us at the wedding and after and said that they were the best wedding band they'd ever heard. On top of being a great musician and great at keeping the party going, Doug is also a really nice guy and really easy to work with. So happy we booked him!

  • Doug Winters and his band were absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!! Everyone at the wedding raved about how great the band was, they got almost everyone on the dance floor. Doug and team did such a fantastic job with the music. I loved how the band intermingled with the guests- the drummer getting guests to hit the drum, the singers interacting with the dancing crowd. Everything was awesome, superb and outstanding. They infused the party with a fabulous, energetic vibe, and we couldn't be any happier. They played all our favorites, and we didn't even discuss how to end the night and they did a phenomenal job with Disco Inferno- which inspired a dance-off among the crowd. I could just gush and gush how elated I am about Doug and the band. Thank you so much for making our wedding celebration so much FUN!!!! Everyone had a blast!!!!!! I would send any and all business their way. Doug and his band were incredible. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!

  • 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

  • Doug Winters Music was wonderful--we are still getting comments (from guests who usually prefer a DJ, nonetheless) about how great our band was. Our dance floor was constantly packed and they really got things started without getting cheesy. They are a bit pricey, but if you can swing it, it really makes the wedding classy. We had a few snafus that I think only I (and a few of my musically inclined guests) realized--our first dance song's tempo was MUCH faster than was played at the wedding, and they forgot/didn't know the lyrics to 1 or 2 songs, and they played a couple of my 'do not play' songs (but they fit in well with the rest of the music, so I let it go and was okay with it). Otherwise, they put on a great party--highly recommend them.

  • Doug Winters and Best Kept Secret are an awesome band! Doug is a delight to work with. If you live in the NY area try to meet with him in person - it will make planning your playlist so easy. Take his advice about what songs to use for parent dances, etc., and don't worry too much about making special requests - he has such a long list of great songs the band has down perfectly. Your guests will be telling everyone for weeks afterward what a great party your reception was!

  • Doug's band "Best Kept Secret" was the band at our wedding in November 2009 and we could not have been more thrilled. The comments we received from everyone -- literally everyone -- following the wedding were all along the lines of either "WHERE did you find this band??" and "that was the best band ever!!" I had learned of BKS from a friend who I had asked for recommendations as she had done extensive research and she said her absolute favorite choice for a band, as she had seen them perform twice at other weddings, was Best Kept Secret. She was 100% right. I cannot recommend Best Kept Secret highly enough as they were a pleasure to work with from start to finish, even when we had to switch the date on them after signing the contract because of a problem with the original venue. They have a wide range and are more than willing to learn anything not on their extensive playlist. I am positive you will share the same sentiment!
