I hired The Desert Knights Band for our New Years Eve party. Sometimes hiring through a gig site can be scary if you can't prove what you hear on the site is what you will get live. I was extremely happy with the professional attitude the band carried. The sound was great and the band was tight. They were very professional in handling the audience and did a great job of interacting with the crowd. I would definitely recommend them as well as hire them again myself.

Doug and the band showed up early for the event, got set up and mingled with our guests at our request. They are a great group of people, but then they got started playing...WOW. Blew us away...these guys sounded great! They were talented and quite honestly sounded better than most the bar bands around town. They played great songs...all the guests loved them and three of our guests are planning on hiring them in the near future. Thanks to Doug and the rest of the band...great to work with!!!

The band was amazing! They played for our wedding at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. Both my mother and I had a couple special request songs and they learned them just for our event!!! Doug is professional and a great artist. We met at the Gardens before the event and he made me feel totally comfortable. His fiddle playing got everyone out of their chairs and dancing almost immediately. I cannot recommend them more highly! Their fee was in my opinion way too low (we gave them extra after the event we were so pleased). If you want a professional, courteous band that plays amazing, jump out of your seat live music then hire this band!!

Doug Dethridge and the Desert Knights Band were awesome. We had a very successful Fall Roundup due in part to the band. I am definately going to hire them back for the next Country Western dance we have here in Sun Lakes. Sincerely, Roberta Laird Event & Activities Coordinator Sun Lakes Country Club

They were awesome!! Rare to find a band with so much vocal & musical talent!!! Before the party was even over, people we're asking me about the band, who they were, where they were from, & possibly hiring them in the future!! They will definitely be the #1 band as my choice for the next event i have!!! Can say enough great things about them, except, you're lucky to get them...they're busy guys!!!! My Dad loved them!!!

These guys were awesome. Our town is small, and it is difficult and usually expensive to get exceptional tallent to come here. We certainly enjoyed the diversity of the band and would welcome them to come back anytime. Thanks again,we sure enjoyed the music!!!

Our group enjoyed the Desert Knights Band emensly! What an enjoyable conclusion to our convention. They arrived on time, set up promptly and come showtime all the seats in the room turned in their direction. Their vocal and instrumentation talent was well mixed for the room allowing our group to enjoy the music and dance. I knew from their demo they came to sing and play music. Some groups compensate for their weak vocals by playing loud. Not the Desert Knights Band. If I lived in Phoenix I would attend their next gig!
