  • We cannot recommend the BCB enough. They are incredible musicians, energetic performers and really terrific people. They helped make our wedding reception absolutely unforgettable. From age 5 - 85 EVERYONE loved them. You will not be disappointed if you make the BCB part of your wonderful day.

  • 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 det...

  • 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 per... Read more

  • 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 ... Read more

  • I can't say enough good things about the Bob Charest Band. You will not be disappointed! They exceeded all our expectations. The wide variety of music they play (and play well!) lends itself to the range of ages you find in wedding guests. Our guests raved about the band during the wedding and are still talking about the band months later! Bob and Cindy made the planning process fun and personal; we really felt like they cared about our opinions and offered thoughtful suggestions when we had questions. At first we were a little surprised that they don't use a set list, but they did a great job of playing songs based on the feel of the crowd. They kept our guests dancing all night long! Cindy is very responsive to all emails and phone calls, which is a big help when you are in the throes of wedding planning. The band conducts themselves with such professionalism while putting you at ease and maintaining an upbeat energy.

  • Wow, what can we say? The Bob Charest Band was so spectacular. They listened to all of our special requests, and helped ensure our special dances were flawless. They are so professional, fun, and really keep the guests dancing. We had a very musical group of guests at our wedding, and we are still getting nothing but fantastic comments about how great the band was. A definite must!

  • The Bob Charest Band is the way to go for your wedding band!! You will not be disappointed. They not only cover a huge range of music genres, but they were so amazing to work with from start to finish! They will learn a special song for you and they cover songs with such accuracy, its amazing! They also kept the dance floor full all night! I am so happy with my decision to book them. :-)

  • By far the best bang for your buck. Bob and Cindy are more then fantastic at making sure everything is perfect for your event. No detail escapes them! I wouldn't think about booking them again.

  • The BCB was absolutely hands down the best part of our July wedding! Not just the entertainment they put on the day of (which was fantastic), but working with Bob and Cindy the year+ leading up to it. They always responded immediately with any questions we had, and also gave us a lot of ideas for other vendors to use. Our wedding day ended up being exactly what we imaged and we couldn't have done it with out them! Months later, our guests still talk about the band. The whole team is so talented and we can't wait to see them at other future events! They are certainly people we will be friends with forever :) Every penny is definitely well worth it! Thank you so much for everything!!

  • Our wedding would not have been the same without this incredible band! We knew even before we got engaged that the Bob Charest Band would be playing at our wedding. Our guests are STILL talking about how much fun they had dancing the night away, and we owe all of that to Bob and the gang. Bob and Cindy are truly a pleasure to work with. They are passionate about what they do, and are so attentive and down to earth. All of the band members are friendly, full of personality, and make a great entertainment team! We love the Bob Charest Band, they have become great friends and we would recommend them in a heartbeat! You are guaranteed talent, professionalism, and above all else, a group of extremely warm and welcoming people. Thank you again for everything!! - Bill and Carrie Keaton

  • In the years that I’ve been a wedding coordinator I’ve seen a number of bands and although there are a number of good ones I haven’t heard one who is as good as The Bob Charest Band. Their range of members and age range of members allows them to play pretty much any type of music and to play all of it spot on. Just for our wedding alone they jumped from Nora Jones’ Love Me Tender for our first dance to rapping Jay-z’s Empire State of Mind (which people are still talking about) to our epic encore of F.U.N’s We Are Young. Beyond their compete mastery of musical covers Cindy and Bob have to be the nicest people to work with. From my experience as a coordinator, they don’t get in diva mode like a lot of bands do, which makes them a favorite at any venue they play at. Additionally, from a bride’s standpoint they are the most kind and easy to work with vendors ever! You can trust that if you tell them what you want they will deliver above and beyond, which is exactly what ... Read more

  • Absolutely LOVED working (I shouldn't even call it work, the experience) with BCB. The Bob Charest Band made our wedding day even more wonderful and we are so thankful to them for the experience! They read us so well and played music our guests extremely enjoyed! Our guests were dancing before the party even started and danced the whole time which was exactly what we wanted! I would HIGHLY recommend the Bob Charest Band!

  • Words cannot describe my feelings towards BCB - They are absolutely AMAZING! If you want to celebrate your wedding day with ALL of your guests shoulder on the dance floor having the time of their lives look no further. The energy they bring to the reception takes the party to another level all together. We are from Philadelphia, we had guests from Philly, NYC, Boston, DC & California at our wedding, and to this day (432 days later) they cannot stop RAVING about our band... & how our wedding was the MOST FUN wedding they've ever been to - which is seriously the best compliment a bride can receive after all of the blood, sweat and tears that goes into planning the wedding. :) Since I was planning our wedding from a distance (without a wedding planner) I leaned on Bob and Cindy so much. We met with them once on a visit to Maine, and then had many hours of phone conversations (and tons of emails back and forth) to describe to them what we wanted out of our wedding day. They asked all o... Read more

  • The Bob Charest Band ROCKED our wedding!! We had the time of our lives and the BCB was a huge part of that! Our guests had a blast and are still talking about how much fun they had and how amazing the band was. We danced the night away! There were times we thought the dance floor was going to cave in! Bob and Cindy are so kind and want to make sure you have the wedding of your dreams. They like getting to know you so they can help create a perfect day/evening tailored to your personalities and interests. They learned a special song for us and even let my brother play the drums for a song as well! They truly are a wonderful band and we are so thankful they were able to play at our wedding! They're the BEST!
