Ann (mother of bride) – 10.29.16

Please express my sincere thanks to the entire Charles Glenn Band for an absolutely outstanding performance on Saturday night at our daughter’s wedding reception.   We had so many people ask about the band!  They MADE the reception.   I knew that they were wonderful,  but I didn’t know that they would be just AMAZING.

I really appreciate your recommendation.  You were able to capture exactly what we wanted.  My daughter told me that the most important thing to her was the band!  Well,  we succeeded.  They were absolutely the very best choice and we could not be more appreciative of their exceptional talents and wonderful interaction with our guests.

I would highly recommend them and would be happy to do so at any time.

Thank you again

Samantha and Adam – 10.11.15

Thank you for an incredible night of dancing and music at our wedding. Besides Adam singing, everyone is talking about how great you all were. The song choices were amazing. You guys really kept the party going and we are so appreciative. It was exactly what we wanted for no one to leave the dance floor and you delivered. Also the jazz trio during cocktail hour was amazing as well. From the bottom of our hearts we want to say Thank You. It was a pleasure and an honor to work with you.

Susan S – 5.9.15 

The wedding was a huge success and Charles, Nikki and the entire band was a major part of that.  Please tell them everyone loved the music and we appreciated all they did.  We will definitely use them again when we have another major event.

Thank you again.

Carol P – 4.25.15

We are the parents of the bride of the Pomerantz/Waxman wedding… We just want to thank you and your talented band for the outstanding job you did at the reception last weekend. The music was PERFECT, and we feel so happy with our choice!

Many thanks again, Carol + Bill Pomerantz

Julianne E – 7.13.13 

Other than the ceremony, Charles Glenn was by far the highlight of our wedding in July. We had an 8 piece band and couldn’t have been happier. I’m a music teacher and my husband is a full time musician and there was nobody else we would even consider after seeing Charles! Almost all of my husband’s friends are musicians from around the country and we wanted to blow away everybody from LA to New York. Charles and his band were over the top and played music to get everybody dancing. They played everything from Earth Wind and Fire to newer songs still on the radio. They even played without taking any breaks. We had a Jewish wedding and Charles’ band played the best sounding and most energetic Horah that we had ever heard as well! One of our guests was an agent with William Morris in Beverly Hills and even his jaw dropped when Charles sang Whitney Houston’s “I will always Love you” EVEN BETTER THAN WHITNEY. And yes, CHARLES sings it, not the female singer (who was also fantastic!). If you want to awe your guests and have a great time look no further. It was incredibly easy to work with the band and they came fully prepared. They’re worth every penny!

Meg S 4.13.13

We hired the Jazz Trio during dinner and the 9 piece Charles Glenn Band for the reception. BOTH WERE AMAZING!!!! I hired the band without ever hearing them live, so I was a little nervous….the music turned out to be better than I could have imagined. I cannot tell you how many guests said it was the best music they have heard at a wedding. The band played a great mix of oldies and current songs to get everyone dancing. My favorite aspect was that both Charles and his wife (female singer) mixed in with the crowd to really get everyone into the music. First class performance all the way. Without doubt, hiring Charles Glenn was one of the best wedding decisions I made. You will not be disappointed!

Ashley H – 8.9.14

The Charles Glenn Group had everyone up and dancing, even my 92 year old grandpa! Everyone is still raving about how much fun they had on the dance floor. You will NOT regret your choice!

Julia H – 8.30.14

Charles Glenn and his wife performed at my reception. They did an excellent job! My now husband and I debated about whether to have a DJ or Band. Luckily, I won the battle and we booked Charles. After the wedding, my husband agreed that it was the right choice. Dance floors at weddings are rarely as packed as they were at mine. Charles Glenn performs a great selection of music for all ages. They were also very helpful in playing specific songs outside of their performance style to meet our Sorority and Fraternity traditions.

Angela N – 12.29.13

Charles and his band did an amazing job at our reception. Getting people out on the dance floor was not a problem. They played a great mix of older & newer music that kept the whole population happy. My husband and I danced until the very last song and loved every minute.

John R – 9.7.13

Charles and his band came down to Cape Girardeau for our wedding in September. They were without a doubt the best band we could have asked for. They aren’t the cheapest band out there, but you definitely get what you pay for. The dance floor was packed for the full four hours. Everyone said that Charles was the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. The energy was high the whole night. No doubt about it, they were worth every penny.

Rhett F – 10.12.13

Charles and his band were such a wonderful part of our wedding. The band kept the party going. Everyone enjoyed the wide range of musical selections and danced the night away. We cannot thank Charles and his band enough for a fabulous evening.

Audra S – 4.27.13

Our guests could not stop telling us how great our band was! He kept everyone on their feet all night and never played a song I was unhappy with. Plus Charles himself made a point at our first meeting to say how honored he was we picked him and he will make sure that this is our wedding and he will do whatever he can to make it special for us. You could tell he really cares about his work and serving his clients!
