I sincerely want to thank all the venues I am invited to play for. I hope each time I entertain your visitors and staff, it's as enjoyable for them as it is for me. I love seeing return happy customers! Here's what some of my awesome venue contacts have said:

"After seeing JT Douglas perform, I thought his style, vocals and music would be ideal for the VIP Club for our upcoming KINGS OF LEON concert. It's great to have him on board!"
- Gina Dhaddey, Director of Sales, Live Nation

"We are now in our second year of booking JT at Surf and Sand Resort in the 15Fifty-Five Lounge and we couldn't be happier. His performances are always a listening pleasure for our guests and staff alike. In a setting like ours, the correct blend of professionalism and fun is a must and JT nails it!"
- Michele Frank, Director of Catering/Conference Services
  Surf and Sand Resort, Laguna Beach, CA

"We had the pleasure of having JT write a song on the spot and perform it at our 'Valley's Best Places to Work' event at the Scottsdale Princess Resort. To the delight of nearly 900 in attendance, he nailed it with a blend of humor, talent, vocal quality and genuine stage presence. That's why we hired him for our next event at The Venue, Scottsdale."
- Jo Pullen, Events Director
  Phoenix Business Journal, Phoenix, AZ

"The JT Douglas Band rocked our New Year's Eve (Big Night San Diego) event at the Hilton Bayfront to a crowd of over 6,000. We're happy to have him back next year for his third year in a row!"

- Riley Trombley, HiBall Events, BNSD Entertainment Manager
  New York, NY

"After seeing JT at Copper Blues in Phoenix and again at Sunsets in Capistrano Beach, I was completely taken by the experience as an audience member. As a Talent Booker and Scout, recognizing stage presence and talent is my job and making him a staple at Jon Lovitz Comedy Club on Universal Studios Blvd. (along with placing him in clubs all over LA) is my pleasure. He really gets the audience involved and that's more than music, it's entertainment!"
- Dee Burdett, Jon Lovitz Comedy Club & Network
  Universal City, CA

"Hey can you play Boondocks in Scottsdale again? They specifically asked for you after you filled in the other night. No lie, here's the text, they want you there this Friday Night!" 
- Javier Garcia, AZ Musician, Booking/Promoter
  Scottsdale, AZ

"JT is a one-of-a-kind act. His ever changing mash-ups and ability to read a room are second to none. He'll always have a place to play here in San Clemente."
- Nick Plevel, Managing Partner
  Beachfire Restaurant & Pub, San Clemente, CA

"Finally a musician who not only has the talent to keep our customers coming back, but the business sense to help book other amazing musicians and make my job easier."
- General Manager, Mabel's on Main
  Scottsdale, AZ

"JT and his band energized and engaged the 3,000 person crowd at this year's Scottsdale 20/30 club event at Talking Stick resort. We've already asked him back for next year's NiteFlite event."
- Joe Conner, NiteFlite Chairman
  Talking Stick Resort, Scottsdale, AZ

"JT's trio absolutely killed it on Cinco De Mayo and our customers still ask when they are coming back. It was nice to see a band actually interact with the audience and make them part of the show." 
- America Cox, Employee
  Sandbar Desert Ridge, Phoenix, AZ

"JT rocked our backyard cocktail style wedding!! My husband and I had heard JT and his amazing adaptable style voice and mad mash up skills at happy hour one night and knew we'd want him to entertain our guests. We were laid back with our planning and gave JT very little direction. He picked up the vibe up our event and had his own sweet playlist going all night. Everyone is still talking about how great the music was...and our food truck caterer booked him on the spot for another event."
- Rachel & Beau
  Newlyweds, Phoenix, AZ 

"JT performed at my son's rehearsal dinner. He was solo.  It was an outside, backyard dinner/gathering/party.  His music selection was impeccable and his voice and talent incredible. My guests are still raving about how enjoyable he was to listen to. I will definitely call him when I have another party."

- Cindy Carlen

"We've had JT regularly entertain our customers for nearly a year. They love his shows as much and we do (and our staff) and he's already on the books for this year's upcoming shows."
- Randy and Suzy Fisher, Owners
  Five Vines Wine Bar, San Juan Capistrano, CA 

"Along with designing our marketing materials, we've enjoyed listening to JT play to crowds all over Arizona and California and have given him sponsorship for several shows. He brings a professionalism and marketing insight rarely found in musicians."
- George Duerr, Corbin Jones, Co-Founders
  Dirty Tequila, AZ, NV, CA

"When I heard JT at my workplace, I really enjoyed his voice, energy, and overall talent. I thought he would be ideal to entertain at my upcoming wedding, and because of his music connections in the Midwest, we are easily able fly him out to Milwaukee. He's going to play full band for us!" 
- Rachel Grabelsky, Resort Lounge Supervisor
  Phoenician Resort, Phoenix, AZ

"JT brings a fun, audience interactive show to my venue. His range of songs and delivery appeals to a broad audience regardless of age or genre preference. Can't wait for his next visit!"
- Cindy Monroe, Owner
  Luxe Martini Bar, Dana Point, CA

Phoenix has some amazing venues and great live music scene but let's face it, people have spontaneously combusted here in August and I think a even ignited my arms one day just holding them out the sunroof in August 2009 as I cruised down the 101. 

So, I will be headin' to the coast and kicking off at The W Hollywood Aug 7 and taking the whole month to soak up the salt air and sea without catching fire.

If you are in the LA, Orange County area during Aug, let me know and come see a show!!
