Review by Tim M.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on April 3, 2022From Gilbert, AZ

I would hire this band again in a heartbeat. Everyone who was at the party (age range from 25-68) loved them. They played music from different genres, (AC/DC to Chris Stapleton) and from the different decades. They were fantastic. We feel lucky that we were able to get them when we did - the stars aligned. Great energy, great customer service (prompt, clear communication), great musicianship and great with the crowd.

The Dina Preston Band:

Greetings Tim, Thank you so much for your kind comments and referral! We had a wonderful time performing for your celebration:) It was great getting everyone to sing along, and dance with a conga line finish!! Wishing you all continued blessings! Don and Dina (and the band too)

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on October 15, 2019From Queen Creek, AZ

Incredible!! Don and the entire band are top notch! Their communication, accommodations and professionalism is outstanding. They really know how to read the crowd and get everyone involved and out on the dance floor. Their music is amazing. I can't tell you how many of our guest commented, "Wow, where did you find these guys, They are awesome!" Several took their business cards for future events. As I told Don, they will be our go to band here in Arizona. Thanks Dina Preston Band for making my 60th birthday party a HUGE success!!

The Dina Preston Band:

Carla, Thank you so much for your great comments and accolades. We had a wonderful time performing for your Birthday Party. Your family and guest danced the night away and it was a Fun Interactive evening! We're looking forward to being your Arizona Band for your Future events! Till next time, We "Can't-Wait" to see you all again. ? Dedicated to your success! Best Wishes, Don, Dina, Mike, and Henry

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 17, 2012From El Paso, TX

The Dina Preston Band is the most talented and professional group we have ever had perform for our organization since its founding in 1927. The event was a huge success and the audience continues to send positive and complimentary notes to the host about the band.

The Dina Preston Band:

Greetings Ken, Wow!! Thank you for the wonderful accolades. We feel like we have a new family in El Paso TX. The Dina Preston Band looks forward to performing for your organization soon. Please give our best to everyone @ the Los Caballeros. We also look forward to having you perform with the band again as well Ken. Here's to a wonderful 2013! Respectfully, Don & Dina

Corporate FunctionReviewed on October 26, 2012From Tucson, AZ

We hired the Dina Preston Band for a corporate Western themed party. They did a great job of playing a wide variety of both classic and modern country. They sounded great and everybody enjoyed listening to the music throughout the evening. The band is very organized and professional which was very important for a corporate function. Would definitely hire the Dina Preston Band again.

ConventionReviewed on October 18, 2011From Scottsdale, AZ

The Dina Preston Band met all of our expectation of providing relevant music to the audience. We had numerous comments on the talent of the band, music choices and performance and interacting with the group. The Dina Preston Band kept the audience either on the dance floor or tapping at the tables. They were the most enjoyable band I've seen in a long time. Great music, great talent and great showmanship. Thanks, Donna Abreu

FundraiserReviewed on November 11, 2007From Bend, OR

Simply put in 3 words, the Dina Preston Band was sensational, dynamic and AWESOME!!!!! A mix of country, pop, rock and patriotic songs earned them a well deserved standing ovation. The U.S.Marines from Twenty-Nine Palms and Camp Pendleton sang with Dina on stage creating a legend on film that is being seen on military bases in Iraq and worldwide uplifting the spirits of deployed soldiers. The audience was roaring with laughter! Dina Preston is a tremendously talented vocalist with a beautiful and clear voice. Dina and Don are a rare combination of musical talent, enthusiasm and humor!!!

New Year's Eve PartyReviewed on January 26, 2011From Cortez, CO

This is an awesome group of pro's !!! We were in awe of their talents and that we could get them for our New Years eve bash. Completely charming and pleasing to work with I would recommend them to anyone who wants an all around band that is capable of managing any audience no matter how diverse. At our event we had all kinds of different demands from ballroom music (including a tango), also rock, country, oldies, etc. and they handled all of it with grace and poise. They have experience, and they have lots of class, and they are really fun to work with!! Sincerely, Chris Canedy/ event planner

Corporate FunctionReviewed on February 18, 2015From Carefree, AZ

I can't recommend this group highly enough. They were very professional, approachable, and flexible in meeting all of our needs. Their performances enhanced our evening events and added to the overall success of our program. If you hire this group you will be very pleased!

The Dina Preston Band:

Kelley, We had a wonderful time performing for both of your ACS events. It's always wonderful when you get a group to dance an extra hour and a half in to the night. It was truly great working with you Kelley. Be safe in your travels. Respectfully, Don Ortiz and the Dina Preston Band

Hotel EventReviewed on November 23, 2010From Phoenix, AZ

This band is fantastic! They not only entertained our group, but everyone walking along the lawn and sitting on the patio stayed to listen to them play. They are extremely professional and know how to play to high-end corporate type of guests. Their music is absolutely the best and it kept everyone asking for more. Our guests stayed long after the food was served and the dishes cleared just to listen to the band. I will definitely hire them again for our meeting in Phoenix next year.

The Dina Preston Band:

Greetings Garnett, Thank you for your kind words and recommendations. It truly was a beautiful evening under the stars @ the Arizona Biltmore. The Dina Preston Band had a great time performing for your group of CEO's. We look forward to seeing you Garnett & Aerospace Industries return next year. Have a great Thanksgiving & Holiday Season. Respectfully, Don Ortiz

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 12, 2008From Mesa, AZ

Don Ortiz was great! He handled everything with professionalism and patience. We had a very tight schedule,but, thanks to him, we pulled it off. His DEO Productions also did my facades and special effects. Wow! what a night. Everyone had a blast. We are still getting thank-yous from people. We had scorpion races, the mechanical bull, hatchet throw, quick-draw guns, indian artisans,singers, can-can dancers, an indian blessing, a hoop-dancer, linedance instructors,a fiddler,and it was Dina's birthday, so we presented her with a giant cake. The whole evening was very special. Thank you for recommending them. Regards, Jeannette

Engagement PartyReviewed on March 1, 2019From Tucson, AZ

Don Ortiz is a talented musician and the consummate professional! I planned to surprise my gf with a marriage proposal at the location of our first date, and I needed a musician who could appear from the shadows to play a couple of songs that are very special to us. I couldn't find anyone until Don called. Immediately, he put me at ease with his sincere interest in our story and in our special moment to come. He assured me that he could deliver the experience we were hoping for, and promised to help with anything I needed to make it happen. He went above and beyond, even stepping up to be event coordinator on the day. Don is a man of his word.. HIghly Recommended!!!

The Dina Preston Band:

Thank you, Luis, for the wonderful review! It was truly a magical moment event to be a part of with your family and friends. Much Love to you your wife family and friends! Respectfully, Don

Community EventReviewed on June 22, 2009From Phoenix, AZ

The Dina Preston Band were wonderful and very accomodating. The proposed function had to be modified several times and the band was extremely helpful and understanding. I would highly recommend them for any function that needs high energy and has participants that want to dance. They are great!

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 13, 2015From Scottsdale, AZ

I was a little concerned as I wasn't able to hear the bank live before our event. I just had to go by youtube videos and recordings on their website. But is was surely not disappointed. They were very accomodating, getting there early to setup , allowing myself and another guest to "sit in" on a couple of songs, and overall doing a great job. And they sounded great too! Dina has an excellent voice and sounds great on any type of music.

The Dina Preston Band:

Thanks Chris! We had a wonderful time performing for the Ferrari Club of America Desert Region Holiday party. It was great having you and Stephen sit in and perform with us for the encore set. Cheers, Don & The Dina Preston Band.

These guys really know how to engage the audience and do what bands do....entertain. Great times, folks!! I would definitely obtain this group again.!

The Dina Preston Band:

The Dina Preston Band was brilliant. Extremely entertaining, had all our guests up dancing and having a wonderful time. We are already trying to think of a reason to hire them again! Thank you to the whole band for making my husbands birthday so much fun and memorable for him.

The Dina Preston Band:

Dina and Don and the rest of the band were great. They were very talented and professional. Their friendliness made it seem like we had known them for years. The band was a total pleasure to meet and entertained our Canada Party expertly. We had only positive comments from our party and we would highly recommend Dina Preston Band.
