2015 - Top Dance Band

our guests are still raving about charisma!

I cannot possibly say enough wonderful things. Our wedding day was totally made because of Charisma. The atmosphere was exactly what we wanted and nobody stopped dancing all night. Our guests are still raving about Charisma and I am too! Best. Decision. Ever.

This BAND makes the wedding! 

My wedding was in early September and people are still raving about the band! The array of song selections were perfect! Everything from cocktail hour to having all 200 wedding guest dancing on the dance floor before dinner was even served. The band was truly amazing, and very professional. They played all of the songs that were a must play for me, and even put some of my other favorite songs on the ipod to play when they took their 10 minute break. I was extremely impressed with this band and would not have changed anything! PICK CHARISMA!

Don't waste your time looking, just book Charisma

When we began looking at bands for our wedding we read a review that said, “Don’t waste your time looking, just book Charisma.” Best advice I have ever taken and the best piece of advice I could pass on to someone looking for a fabulous band. There are no words. Charisma exceeded our expectations. Everyone at our wedding, all ages, loved the variety of music Charisma played and their energy. Additionally, the songs the band learned for us were played and sung flawlessly. My husband and I are trying to figure out what party we can have next so that we can hire Charisma to play again. Thank you Charisma for adding that special touch to our very special day! You Rock!

I couldn't have imagined out band selection going any better!

From the nice background music during Cocktail Hour to the awesome dance floor sets, they were fantastic in getting people in the swing of dancing for the night! It’s been 4 months since the wedding and we still hear so many compliments from our guests of how great the band was! We asked they learn two songs and they delivered without a hitch! Such a fun group to listen and dance too! A great part was, we got to see them a month ago, again. Still amazing! We contacted them 13 months before our wedding and they already had 3 inquiries for booking on our date, the good ones book up fast!!!

Words cannot describe just how AMAZING Charisma is

We heard great things from reviews, but they were EVEN BETTER in person. Charisma is the real deal. Professional, talented, fun, and energetic only begin to describe this band. The dance floor was packed all night long ,and we had multiple guests ask us “who is your band, they are phenomenal.” They truly made our special day perfect. While the band collectively is the best I have come across (I have been to many weddings with bands), I must mention that the best aspect of the band is the individual members; they are all warm, genuine and friendly and are all truly a pleasure to work with. Could not recommend more highly!
— David H (The Knot)

Life of the party!

Charisma did not fail to deliver! From the very beginning they were very easy and pleasurable to work with. Once we decided to book them, they were very helpful and prompt in responding to any questions we may have had and offering up suggestions. The day of they delivered a 5 star performance and had everyone from our youngest guests to the oldest dancing all night! The cocktail hour was very classic with the Jazz duo and set the tone for the rest of the evening. We’ve received tons of compliments on the band, and could not have been happier with our decision to book Charisma!
— Ashley M (The Knot)

Charisma were fantastic!

This is a bunch of musicians who know what they are doing and know how to keep a wedding lively. Charisma sounded great; were very accommodating to my request to have my best friend sing a few numbers (she is a professional musician); and I am still receiving compliments on how fabulous they sounded and how well they kept the dance floor going at our wedding. Mitch and Marie were both great to work with, and I would strongly recommend Charisma to anyone looking for a talented, engaging wedding band with a deep repertoire.
— Meredith S (GigMasters)

Lifelong musician says hire them and don't look back

Charisma crushed it. When the first course hit the table at my wedding, they picked up the pace, and people abandoned their salads to hit the dance floor. I’ve been to enough weddings to know that isn’t common; it usually takes some heavy coaxing to get people away from their food.

Marie was responsive, kind, and full of wisdom accumulated over hundreds of weddings. The two song requests we made for them to learn were done perfectly. My wedding was full of worship musicians, jazz players, professionals, hobbyists, and everything in between. I myself am a lifelong musician (jazz, classical, funk, rock...). Every single person was blown away.

Hire them.
— Tyler P (The Knot)

absolutely perfect!!

We were so fortunate to have Charisma as our wedding band this past April. They were beyond fabulous! Their song set was so comprehensive and all of the band members were truly talented musicians and performers. All 180+ guests at our wedding were out on the dance floor for the whole night. Everyone from our 90-year-old grandma to our 3-year-old flower girl (and all ages in between!) had a blast. The morning after our wedding, everyone we saw commented on how fabulous the band was. It’s actually still a topic at family parties nearly 4 months later. Everyone was so easy to work with, and they went above and beyond to accommodate us!
— Andrea F (The Knot)


Affordable. Professional. Talented. Flexible. This band was PERFECT. As a musician, I was very picky about what I wanted in a band, and what they’d be playing. I even wrote an arrangement for them to play at one point. I was NOT an easy client. I cannot express how perfect they were!! They gave us exactly what we needed, they kept everyone engaged, they knew exactly what to play and when. I repeat: BOOK. THIS. BAND.
— Paul R (The Knot)


Marie and the entire band of Charisma are wonderful!!! They were a pleasure to work with leading up to our wedding and exceeded all of our expectations the day of. We are still getting calls from family to tell us how amazing they were! They kept the party going and everyone on their feet the entire night with a wide variety of music. We are so glad they were a part of our day and made our wedding such an amazing event!!! We cannot thank them enough or recommend them higher than we do!!!!
— Jenna (The Knot)


Charisma was perfect, they looked awesome in black tie and then totally ROCKED! The dance floor was packed from the first song and overflowing during the last. They are an absolute pleasure to work with, fantastically talented, professional and reliable.
— Sandra & Gordon (GigMasters)

fantastic wedding band

From the beginning to the end, Charisma was professional and easy to work with. Our guests were raving about Charisma, and the band absolutely made our night! They nailed our first song, and their rates are very reasonable. It’s not too good to be true, they are AWESOME. My advice: book them and move on to something else. You won’t have to worry about a thing.
— Jennifer D (The Knot)

Outstanding band!! Simply the BEST!!

Charisma was all we could have ever wanted from a wedding band. They were very professional, outstanding and versatile musicians. They had a great song playlist with so many different genres. They learned our wedding song as well as one for the parent’s dance and even accommodated our request to make a country song less “twangy” since we are not really country fans ;p Every song they played sounded great! We knew going into the wedding that we didn’t have a big dancing crowd,but the ones that were dancers loved the music they played and kept saying what a great band they are and we are still getting comments from our guests. I would not waste time checking other bands. Schedule an appointment with them to see them in action during their rehearsal. That would easily convince you that they are the perfect band for your wedding!!
— Marie (The Knot)

look no further!

My, oh my—Charisma was above and beyond! They had everyone dancing BEFORE dinner was even served! Every band member is as classy, kind, and respectful as they are talented. Marie ran the evening smoothly, from beginning to end. If good music and non-stop dancing is a priority, you have found your band.
— Colleen T (The Knot)


Once the ceremony is over, it’s up to the music to carry the celebration. And Charisma’s performance was absolutely perfect. Why would anyone bother with a D.J. when true musicians are available? Nothing compares to live music played well, and Charisma played better than well. They sounded great and we rewarded them with a packed dance floor from start to finish. The only negative was that it ended. I’m an ornery old skinflint but I’ve got good taste in music, and if you have the opportunity to book Charisma for your daughter’s wedding...DO IT.
— Knottie (The Knot)

I would recommend them to anyone

Charisma played for our wedding in July of 2014. They were absolutely amazing and created the perfect environment for our wedding. Right from the planning process they were great to work with and on top of their timeline. We were planning the wedding from a distance, so we had a FaceTime meeting with them to see if they were a good fit, which was very helpful and comforting for us. They were also able to learn a couple songs that were important to us to play for our wedding and even learned a little ‘medley’ for my father daughter dance to surprise my dad. At the wedding, they kept everyone engaged and on the dance floor all night. They had a very good variety of music. Our wedding supervisor told us that they were the best band she had ever worked with and that they were so professional. I would recommend them to anyone.

Charisma made our wedding day spectacular

My husband and I were looking on line for a wedding band and came across Charisma. From the few minute clip we saw we knew they were exactly what we wanted. Their professionalism and expertise in providing wedding entertainment far surpasses anything we came across and they delivered more than we could have ever asked for. ALL of our guests were raving about Charisma and asking how we found them. In addition to their extreme talent, Charisma helped us coordinate all the music for our entire day. They provided beautiful music for our ceremony and even learned two songs that we really wanted played at the ceremony and at the reception. They helped coordinate everything and their experience and expertise made our life so easy. We would HIGHLY recommend Charisma to anyone looking for top of the line entertainment for their special day!!
— Meri (The Knot)

Amazing band, so fun and professional

Charisma was fantastic! They were not only easy to coordinate with, they also happily learned two new songs per our request and played them expertly; and most importantly kept all of our guests up and dancing the entire night! We also loved that they could play acoustic guitar for our ceremony and cocktail hour (also played expertly and hit exactly the vibe we wanted) and made it so easy to coordinate. Many of our guests raved about this band- I highly recommend Charisma for your next event!
— Kara G (The Knot)

the dance floor was packed all night long

Charisma played at my daughters wedding in the Catskills on June 6th. This is the second family wedding they have played at. I cannot say enough about how fantastic they are! From personalizing it to the bride and groom to making it a party to remember! The dance floor was packed all night long and chants of encore when they were finished! I not only would hire them again, but hope the many guests that asked about them use them so that I can go to another event where they are playing!
— Mary R (The Knot)

They did an unbelievable job at our wedding

Charisma is the best band ever. They did an unbelievable job at our wedding - better than I ever could have imagined. The dance floor was packed the entire night (with dinners left sitting cold on the table!) We even asked them to learn a couple songs for us which they gladly did, and even sent a recorded clip to hear in advance. Marie was in contact in the months leading up to the event and did a great job with organizing the night. Their song selection is so extensive and they have every single genre nailed. I cannot say enough amazing things about them. I have received many many compliments from our wedding guests.
