Very good band. Song selection is what I was looking for. Great addition with the fiddle in the group, really ads a lot.

New Year's Eve PartyReviewed on December 31, 2012From Yuma, AZ

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.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on February 10, 2012From Chandler, AZ

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!!!

WeddingReviewed on October 3, 2009From Phoenix, AZ

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

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 19, 2010From Yuma, AZ

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!!!

Desert Knights Band:

Thank you Karen and Rick, It was our pleasure playing for your Dad's birthday party. We had a great time! see you on Facebook!

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!!!

ConventionReviewed on March 5, 2011From Phoenix, AZ

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!

Mardi Gras PartyReviewed on July 31, 2010From Pinetop, AZ

Great western band! These guys were tight. Vocals, musicianship, range, volume, equipment and overall personality were top notch. They are professional musicians who know how to put on a great show. They read the crowd well and know how to keep the dance floor full. I have been hiring bands for clubs since the early 80's and have seldom stumbled on this kind of talent.

Desert Knights Band:

Thank you Geoffrey, great people, great food ,great times and the White Mountain Countryclub is beautiful! We are looking forward to next time for sure! Doug Deatherage "The Fiddler"

I loved having the Desert Knights band play at my wedding reception. Everyone loved their music and they kept us dancing all night long. After the reception was over we received numerous compliments towards the band. It was a pleasure working with Doug and I thank him for making the night so memorable! I would recommend he and his band to anyone!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 27, 2012From Glendale, AZ

The band was an amazing addition to our wedding. We could not have been more pleased. They were flexible and accomodating. By the end of the night it felt like they were family. We are trying to think of reason to have another party just so we can hire them again. We look forard to going to future gigs to see them perform and can't wait for their album to come out. They are some of the nicest men we have met and very talented and entertaining. We would recommend them to ANYONE who loves country music and an AMAZING fiddle player! We truly picked the best band for our most important day. I will never forget them playing Red Sovine's "Daddy's Girl", with our girls.
