November 17, 2012- Point Lookout, Northport, ME

Performance Review:

1) Quality of Music: Excellent. The music was fantastic. They played a huge variety of music and were fabulous at engaging the audience.

2) Choice of Music: Excellent. Bob and Cindy worked with me to develop a song list. They even learned 2 songs for the wedding. The music choice was perfect- exactly what I wanted.

3) Grooming and Attire: Excellent. They were dressed very professionally and appropriately.

4) Emceeing: Excellent. The band did a fantastic job of emceeing the event. They worked with me to develop the plan/timeline and executed it perfectly.

5) Break Schedule: Excellent.

6) Use Wilson Stevens again?: Yes.

7) Use artist again?: Yes. Bob and Cindy Charest were very easy to work with. They took the time to get to know me and tailored their performance to ensure it fit our musical taste and the vision we had for our wedding. They were amazing to work with- very responsive, engaging and fun.

Bob and Cindy Charest were amazing. I really enjoyed working with them. I would recommend the Bob Charest Band to anyone. They were incredible- I had many wedding guests comment to me that it was one of the best bands that they have ever heard at a wedding. They really helped to make my wedding day special.

Aron and I were so fortunate to have a dream wedding in Maine. Every detail and every vendor was selected because of their high standards. REAL WEDDINGS MAINE worked with all of the vendors to make our day so special. Music is really important to us and we wanted to make sure the music at our wedding wasn't the typical cheesy wedding stuff but music we would really enjoy. As artists, we're pretty picky about our music. Well...we were BLOWN away by the Bob Charest Band.

I am writing this review before I've even purchased "thank you" notes to mail out to my guests. Of course, I don't think our friends and family will feel slighted; I think everyone who attended our wedding at the Harraseeket Inn on October 3, 2009 will agree that the Bob Charest Band simply "made" the event. As much as our guests asked Seamus and me about, say, "how we met" or where we're spending our honeymoon, so many were curious how we found the talented and oh-so-energetic nine-person band. A friend of my father was sure we discovered them in Los Angeles (where my husband and I currently live and work).

... I can't thank you enough for the best wedding a girl could ever have!!
Raves about you all have been nonstop. Your cover of "You Are The Best Thing" was just incredible.
I can't gush enough!

two days later…
I have to tell you - a complete stranger just stopped at my parents' house to find out the name
of the band that played at our wedding! They heard from a guest that "you guys are the best."
Bob Swan, Father of the Bride

A lot of people came from overseas, and, since both the bride and groom work in New York,
assumed we brought you up from NYC - I loved telling them you were "native talent".
As the VISA ads say: Your performance helped make the day priceless.
Jessica Vachon

Everyone was raving about you guys. It was awesome! You guys totally rocked it.
Jocelyn & Sunny

...You made our reception come alive in a way we didn't even know was possible,
and our guests kept asking if we had flown you in special from NYC!
Your volume was ideal, your song choice was perfect, your sound unbelieveable.
We had no idea what a treasure we were getting when we chose you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
