High profile, high talent, extremely easy to work with. Neil Dover and his band are one of the premier acts on the Gulf Coast. He is a Nashville recording artist, has opened for Chris Stapleton and Sam Hunt, and is a prolific songwriter with four country albums to his credit (and two rock albums). He travels nationwide delivering his unique style of classic country music.
Neil is best known for his one-man show performed weekly at the world famous Florabama lounge in Pensacola, FL. His act has been called "Nash-Vegas" because of its high entertainment value. He is part storyteller, part comedian, and all musician. His clear, powerful, and unique voice are the star of every show.
Excellent performance, especially considering our event's weather obstacles. Neil kept his cool and delivered an outstanding show. Not just a singer-songwriter, but an engaging entertainer as well!
Neil was on time for set up, prepared with all the equipment he said he would bring, great with the crowd and very gifted vocally.
Such an amazing talent and entertainer!!! Fabulous event and everyone loved Neil!!! I wish he could come play every weekend this summer! I'll definitely be hiring him again and again. ;-)
I booked Neil Dover Band for a 50th surprise party for my stepdad. I was a little skeptical of using GigSalad, but it has proved to be the perfect booking tool! First of all, Neil's manager, Russ, handled the booking and was very responsive. He made it an easy, pleasurable process. Had it not been for his responsiveness, I probably would've gone another route simply because of my skepticism. After the booking was finalized, Neil was in touch and from there on, we started planning. Neil was so helpful and easy-going in the party planning process. A really nice guy, he made sure to find out our favorite songs beforehand and even planned out how the surprise would come about. This band is phenomenal! These guys played all of our favorite songs, had party goers onstage for "Live Karaoke", and during band breaks, Neil even gave us all an acoustic surprise. He played for 4 solid hours. And this guy is good! (He's also a looker..in case you ladies want to know.) He played a wide array of music, from country to classic rock, and of course his own original tunes which are fun and catchy. I will definitely be booking again for future events! I hope to catch him at Flora-Bama in the nearer future though! Thanks, Neil, and band, for the great time!! You made our party super special!!
Response from Neil Dover Band:
Rhonda, thank you so much for your gracious review. I am so glad to hear that you experienced both of us as professional and easy to work with. That is always our goal. Your party was wonderful and a ton of fun for us. We would love to work with you again in the future. -- Neil Dover and Russ Merck
I was afraid the acoustics at the campground would not be great, but Neil arrived early and kept tweaking his sound until he was satisfied. When the show started that outdoor space sounded like Carnegie Hall. His concern for sound quality at my small reunion shows his dedication to his craft. And, oh yeah, he sings and plays like no one you have ever seen. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the show.
Had the great pleasure of spending an evening listening to Neil Dover. The music was varied and very entertaining. Neil has talent and a great personality. Can’t wait for the opportunity to do it again.
We had the pavilion set with all the chairs facing the stage. Neil showed up early and while the band was setting up he mingled with our guests, shook hands and flashed that big smile of his. He is the quintessential southern gentleman. When we were done Neil stayed and chatted for over half an hour. He is a great musician and an even better man. I would recommend him and his band to anyone looking for first-class country music.
Neil is a very entertaining performer - original music, covers, engages the audience, takes requests, plays guitar like nobody's business, and he's got a phenomenal voice (very clear and unique). In short, it was another spectacular performance from one of our favorite country entertainers!
We highly recommend Neil for any event you have - weddings, parties, cocktail hour, boat parties, birthdays, senior homes, conferences, etc. You won't be disappointed.
The Neil Dover Band was perfect for our event. Neil and his band mates put on a terrific show! Neil is a great singer and has a huge catalog of songs that he performs! The Neil Dover Band performed for the entire 3 hours we had booked them for without a break and they interacted with the crowd in such a charming way! We could have not been more pleased and will certainly keep them in mind for future events and will recommend them to anyone that asks about booking them!
