The Doo-Wah Riders couldn’t have been more PERFECT for the party!!” We had a real mix of music tastes and the various D.J’s of several different types of formats, so we weren’t certain which direction to go. The DOO-WAH RIDERS were the answer! A good band makes for a good party…and you are the reason everyone had such a great time! We appreciated not only your music, but your professionalism.Dick Clark

The Doo-Wah Riders are not only a pleasure to listen to, but also to work with. You are the only band that I have ever received compliments on when you were only doing a sound check. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Golden Nugget Laughlin.Chuck Davison (The Golden Nugget Laughlin, NV)
Wow! What a party!! MICOM owes it all to the Doo-Wah Riders for the most successful corporate party ever. Everyone not only enjoyed the music, but your stage presence and professionalism.
