The Bob Charest Band played at my sisters wedding, and I wouldn't have chosen anyone else for mine! They are such incredible musicians, and at the end of my wedding (and my sisters) all anyone could talk about was how amazing the band was. I think a live band is a necessity for a really great wedding, and you won't find better than BCB. Bob and Cindy are such nice, personable people and so easy to work with. They will play any kind of music you want to make your wedding exactly what you want it to be. Highly recommended!

Such a huge thank you to the Bob Charest Band, they performed during our wedding reception and somehow found a way to make a great wedding feel somewhat extraordinary. They are so unbelievable talented in the different songs they can play not to mention Bob and Cindy are first class and a pleasure to work with. All of our guests commented on how amazing their music was and how much it added to an enjoyable reception and party. I couldn't say enough nice things about them if I tried, thanks again and again Bob and Cindy!

When it came to picking entertainment for our wedding the Bob Charest Band was an easy choice! As the owner of a local Event Design company, I've had the opportunity to work alongside Bob, Cindy and the rest of the band in a professional capacity on a number of occasions. Whether it's a wedding reception, corporate function or private event I can tell you without hesitation that The Bob Charest Band is incredibly talented, well-rehearsed and on-point with their music selection. Because our professions overlap, I've had the opportunity to see how Bob and Cindy interact with their clients and how they play to the crowd at an event. So, when it came time for Kim and I to hire entertainment for our wedding, I knew that we'd be in great hands working with Bob and Cindy. And, as expected, Kim and I couldn't be happier with the choice we made. Preparing for the wedding, exchanging emails and meeting with Bob and Cindy was an absolute delight. Correspondence was always prompt and detailed. More importantly, the services The Bob Charest Band provided the day of our wedding was nothing short of amazing. The ability to read a crowd, adapt to the energy in the room and play to all ages make The Bob Charest Band the perfect choice for keeping all of your guests entertained. We can't thank the band enough for all that you did! Six months later we still have family and friends referencing the band, the music and the dance floor on a regular basis. Thank you Bob, Cindy and the rest of the group...You guys are phenomenal!

Bob, Cindy and the Charest Band brought the barn down with their interactive, electrifying style. The got to know us on and incorperated our personality both as individuals and as a couple into the music line-up. If I could provide more than five stars on the ratings - I would. They go above an beyond in every way, and you will feel comfortable and listened to in the planning process, and your guest will never forget how much fun they had dancing the night away. Bob and Cindy became and remain good friends and we look forward to celebrating milestones with them in our future.

It wasn't more than 4 hours after my husband proposed that I had contacted Bob and Cindy for their availability! We had known since the moment we heard them play at our friends' wedding years ago that they had to play at our wedding! Cindy and I were up until about 1am, emailing back and forth and confirming all the details. Bob and Cindy (and the whole entire band) are such warm and friendly people, we truly felt like we had known them for years. They traveled over 3 hours to play for us in our hometown, and to say they blew everyone away is an understatement. One of the band members (yay Andrew!!) is from our hometown, and we had members of our community asking our family if they could pop into the reception to listen to them! I wish I could put into words how much we appreciate our experience with Bob, Cindy, and the rest of the crew. They made us feel important, special, and they put on the most amazing party...it's been almost 10 months and we are still hearing feedback from guests and community members who popped in to sneak a listen :) They exceeded our expectations and absolutely made our wedding something that we, and many of our guests, will never forget! We love you, BCB!!!

The Bob Charest Band helped make our wedding joyful and fun. The music was perfect!!! Several of our guests are in the music industry and they were incredibly complimentary. One friend from Los Angeles told me that the covers were so tight that she kept forgetting we had a live band! It's hard to articulate why they stand alone as a wedding band, but I will try. Besides their musical expertise, they also have a way of connecting with the audience without being intrusive. It was all about us and not about the Bob Charest Band. They were playful and responsive and engaged. We cannot say enough!!!

It was on New Year's Eve in Portland, ME in 2010 when my husband Jamie and I first saw the Bob Charest Band. We instantly made friends with Cindy in the hallway before the event even started...I mean it's pretty hard not to love this lady! Once the band started, the dance floor was packed! I've never seen anything like it. They know how to get the crowd involved on so many different levels. That evening concluded with an after party with the band and we haven't lost touch since.

When we decided to tie the knot, Jamie and I had no doubt who we wanted them to play at our wedding. We were THRILLED they had our wedding date open since they book quickly. (We even thought about changing our wedding date if they weren't available....that's how much we wanted them to be a part of our day).

We went with a less traditional wedding: a lobster bake and live music- one big party (after we said our vows of course!) Bob and Cindy knew exactly what we were looking for. Before we go into details about how professional they are, first let us tell you what great friends they've become. Even though we "hired" them to play at our wedding, we didn't look at it that way. We wanted them and the whole band to celebrate, eat, dance, and of course have a couple cocktails with us. We wouldn't have had it any other way.

We had flashbacks from that NYE party back in 2010 as soon as they started playing at our wedding. The dance floor was never empty! They involved the crowd, played the best music the suited the people there, and knew exactly how to slow down and rev up our party! People danced to their very last song, and even started chanting "One More Song!" as if they were at a Kenny Chesney concert!

We could go on and on about these wonderful, talented people but you really should experience them yourselves. Check out their schedule and see them as often as you can, and most importantly ..book them for your wedding before someone else grabs yours date!

The BCB is a must have for anyone that loves to dance and wants their guests to have an unforgettable night! When we first got engaged, my dad said we HAD TO HAVE THIS BAND. My fiancé and I went to their NYE party and we knew there was no one else out there that can lead a party like the BCB. The BCB kept everyone from our 12 year old guests to our 90 year old guests dancing and singing for the entire night. We have people still asking us how they can hear the band again. We started planning with Bob and Cindy one afternoon at their home. They treated us to delicious appetizers and helped us outline our perfect night. They were always available to answer any questions and they became more like friends you wanted at your wedding than a wedding band. Not only did they learn our first dance song, they let us sing along with them as the night progressed (and we are not professionals). They are a pleasure to work with and their passion for music is reflected in their amazing performance. Thank you BSB for making our wedding reception exactly what we dreamed of and making it a very memorable night!

Where do we begin! There is not enough amazing things to say about this band! From the moment we got engaged we knew that we wanted a band for our wending and not even a week later we reached out to The Bob Charest Band! Within seconds of talking to Cindy Charest, I felt like I have known her for years. She was so sweet, so patient and so understanding when I through a thousand questions her way. We instantly booked them! Cindy and Bob made the entire process so effortless and so fun. They took the time to get to know my husband and I and dedicated themselves to making sure that every little detail had a reflection on what my husband and I wanted in making our wedding so special. We talked so much about the band before the wedding that all of our family and friends couldn't wait to hear this band play!! The moment the first song played the seats at our reception were empty and all you could see was a full dance floor until the last song played! Even after the last song the guests came up to us asking if we could make them stay longer! Everyone just loved them and felt like they were at a concert the entire time! SO entertaining, SO fun and SO unique!! There is not another band out there like them or that could even compare! We will always remember our wedding day and how fun it was! Beyond happy of the decision we made in having The Bob Charest Band Play at our wedding!
