    We couldn't be happier with our experience with the Bob Charest Band! From the very start, Bob and Cindy were so professional and really made sure the entertainment was going to make the wedding everything we hoped for. Prior to the day, they had us over for apps and drinks to discuss all the details, genre and song preferences, day of timeline, etc. They truly made us feel comfortable and taken care of. Bob did recorded music for both our ceremony and cocktail which worked out awesome, we were able to send them some music we owned and loved to be played during that time.

    Once the band took the stage for the reception, everything went perfect! They said they were going to take a break about every hour, but I honestly don't remember them taking any breaks after they're first one when they ate dinner. They were amazing, sounded awesome and really entertained all our guests. One of my bridesmaids was even able to join them on stage to sing which was a truly unique and great experience we won't forget!

    I couldn't recommend the BCB more, they were key to helping us have an amazing and memorable night! Thank you so much!!!!

    Hands down the best wedding band in Maine and probably all of New England (and beyond, for that matter...). Everyone in the band is a complete pro and there’s no song or genre that they can’t crush. From our first meeting at with Bob, Cindy, and crew over dinner at the Charest household right up until he last song of the wedding, it was a complete pleasure working with them. There are a lot of good musicians out there, but no band will work harder to make your wedding perfect. Long story short: if you are lucky and they aren’t already booked for your wedding date, do yourself a favor and IMMEADIATELY contact them and book them. I will guarantee they will exceed your expectations and you’ll be glad you got them before someone else did!

    (And for reference, Bob ran the music and audio for our ceremony, the recorded music for cocktail hour, then the introductions and the recorded music for dinner. So the price below covered all that and the PERFECT 4 hour dance party thereafter...)

    This band was THE BEST. We actually ended up booking them before we booked our venue because of the amazing reviews, the great videos we saw online, and some personal recommendations from a co-worker who had used them. Not only were they SUPER accommodating, but they were so friendly and entertaining. LITERALLY everyone commented on how it was the best band they had ever seen. Some of my favorite things: First, my best friend and bridesmaid is a very talented singer/songwriter and for the longest time we had a pact that she would sing at my wedding. She sang Future Days by Pearl Jam on the piano and transitioned perfectly (with the band joining in) to L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole for the whole audience to join in. The band was so excited to work with her and make sure she felt comfortable and well-backed up. Second, they cooked us a feast. No seriously, we were in Maine for a weekend and Bob and Cindy invited us to their house with a few of the other band members. We ate a ton, drank so many bottles of wine and somewhere in there managed to talk through the entire vibe of the wedding (music is really important to us, so we definitely had strong opinions on what to play and when). The band was so excited to collaborate and accommodating. I left not being 100% sure if we had chatted about logistics or made several new best friends. Needless to say, when the day came, they were FLAWLESS. Third, the band just rocks. The fact that they're so big means they can really achieve a lot of different sounds - you can get the old school Frank Sinatra/ Bobby Darin that's perfect for dinner time, the momentum building "transition" music as I call it with great classics that both the old and young can get behind like Jesse's Girl, Love Shack, Lose your Love Tonight, Livin' on a Prayer and finally the floor-pounding/face-melting/sweating your dress off tunes like Macklemore (Can't hold us), Ke$ha (Tic Toc), and Jay-Z/Beyonce (Crazy in Love). So epic. Book this band now.

    Cindy and Bob Charest are amazing! I have had the pleasure to photograph weddings where they provide the music on more than one occasion. The energy they bring is electric. No one sits - we all dance. The sound is immense, and the covers extremely well done. Nothing is cheesy. They are good people, too. You will be well cared for before, during, and after your day. I highly recommend them.
