After my now husband Jeff and I got engaged, the church and venue were our first priorities so we could lock in a date but once those were set, the next thing on our list was finding a band for our reception... To say we were thrilled to learn the Charles Glenn Group was available on our wedding date is an understatement – anyone that’s been to a Blues game over the past several years knows Charles has a phenomenal voice but we were also blown away by the talent of the other band members in their demo video. Due to COVID, there really wasn’t an opportunity for us to hear the band live before we booked them but we had no doubt that they would live up to our expectations. And they did much more than that – they completely blew them out of the water! Our dance floor was full the entire night and we had countless guests of all ages tell us how amazing the band was... We also want to give a big thanks to Peter and Gretchen at Contemporary Productions for helping us coordinate everything with the band. They were wonderful to work with and made the entire process seamless from beginning to end.

Working with Contemporary Productions and The Charles Glenn Group was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! They were timely in their responses and helpful and organized with booking and information as the wedding day approached. I knew the group would be a blast to have, but they certainly exceeded our expectations. From the introductions to the songs they all sang to the songs played on your break, everything was absolutely perfect and so, so fun! The dance floor was packed all night. This was one of the biggest goals of my husband's and mine for our wedding reception, and it was certainly accomplished because of them. People are still complimenting us on how awesome our band was. They are the best!!! Charles sang the "National Anthem" and did an amazing job as usual. All of our St. Louis guests LOVED that. We really cannot thank them enough. Unfortunately, the majority of our friends are married now, but if anyone needs a band for a wedding, they will certainly be recommended by us. Thank you again Contemporary Productions and Charles Glenn Group!

The Charles Glenn Band was AMAZING! This band was such a highlight of the evening. Their performance was more than 5 star with amazing energy, engagement with the crowd, emceeing, and musical talent! Hiring The Charles Glenn Band was one decision of wedding planning that far exceeded our expectations. We also had two of the band members (violinist and key board) play at the ceremony....it was beautiful. We went with the 8 piece band and everyone was so much fun and talented! They rocked our venue! We also appreciated working with Contemporary Productions . I was a nervous mother of the Bride and wanted a perfect evening, and can honestly say it was perfect to me with Charles Glenn contributing heavily to that goal!
Julianne E - 7.13.13 - Wedding
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!
Mary G. - 9.30.17 - Wedding
Charles and the band played at my daughter's wedding last weekend. I can't tell you how fabulous they were, and how many positive comments I received from our guests about their music. They were able to learn and play several special requests, and kept the dance floor filled up to the very end of the reception...even on a Sunday night!! It was so much fun to see my friends and family rockin' it on the dance floor as if we were in our teens again! Thanks to Charles and the band for sharing their amazing talents with us for Rob and Mallory's celebration.

OH MY GOD. Charles Glenn and his band are INCREDIBLE!! They were rockstars and we had an amazing time with them. What a ridiculously talented group. All the guests raved about them and they really helped make our wedding memorable and outstanding. We cannot thank you enough, Charles, and the whole Contemporary Productions team for your stellar work. BOOK CHARLES TODAY!!
Alex F - 9.6.17 - Wedding
This band was well worth the money and kept the dance floor packed all night at my wedding on 9/16/17. I am STILL getting great reviews of them from my guests. They all complimented how great the Charles Glenn Group was and I couldn't have been happier! Thank you!
Danielle D - 8.26.17 - Wedding
If I could give the Charles Glenn Group 15 stars, I would. Totally worth every penny. If you hire them, trust me you will be able to sleep well at night and worry about the other details for your wedding because this one is completely and totally amazing and taken care of from the minute you sign the contract. They were hands down the highlight of the wedding. My husband and I did not stop dancing the entire night. My uncle even asked if they had CDs they could sell! They were amazing. Truly, truly amazing.
