  • 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!!!!!!

  • Listen, If you are going the band route for your wedding, you need to contact Doug. His crew is phenomenal! They play well-known relevant music from ALL genres that keeps the entire party dancing the entire night (See our video for proof). I actually saw Doug perform at one of my buddies weddings and instantly knew i would hire him at my own. It worked out very well. We even had a favorite song (Jason Mraz, I'm Your's) that Doug's band learned specially for us upon request. They good like that. killer wedding band, trust me!

  • We had the 12-piece band, and they were AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about them. They kept the dance floor packed for the entire night, and our guests couldn't stop raving about them! While they didn't play all the songs on our must-play list (we had about 25, so we didn't blame them), they definitely knew what type of music our guests would like, and there wasn't a single song played that we disliked.

  • Doug Winters Music was incredible!! Doug was a pleasure to deal with before our wedding, was so responsive to any and all emails we had and was extremely flexible. The band learned our first dance song since they hadn't played it before and did a great job! We got so many compliments on the band, everyone thought they were amazing and I've had a few friends that have since booked Doug, including my mom who is now getting married! Doug and his band are truly the best at what they do and they helped make our wedding day so special. They are the best!!

  • I would recommend Doug Winters and The Best Kept Secret to anyone who is in the process of planning a wedding. Doug knows how to get the party started, and keep it going throughout the entire night. Leave it to him and he will make your wedding an unforgettable night. I have friends who are still talking about the music at my wedding years after it happened. If you want to have a memorable, fun, energetic wedding, this is the band for you. And not to mention how easy Doug is to work with. He will listen to your requests and work with you to learn specific songs you may want to hear. Book Doug Winters and The Best Kept Secret immediately!

  • 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!

  • “Wow” is all I can say. Doug Winters and his band created the most amazing night at our wedding. I cannot tell you how many people came up to us raving about the music and the band. The whole night was EXACTLY as we wanted it—high energy and dancing the entire night. We had so much fun and we know that our guests did as well.
