Rob & Tara Gorman –  2014 Wedding & 2016 Special Event:

Staci Bennett –  Director of Marketing, Charleston ENT:

sraci“Corey, Scott and Jason (aka Chewbacky) have been gracing my events with their music for years.  I have planned countless fundraisers for major nonprofits, huge corporate events, weddings and everything in between.  My first call no matter how big or small the gathering – is always to them, to make sure they can play.  I cannot tell you how many people go out of their way to find me and tell me how much they love the band – they usually want their contact info too.  It’s truly the most complimented part of any event I do, I don’t know what that says about the other elements of my parties – but I’ll take it! 🙂 Thank you guys lighting up all of my guests with your talent, your passion for music and your contagious smiles and FUN.  Y’all are truly the best.”

Mary Brooke Wade –  Director of Marketing, LS3P Associates – Xmas Party

mary“We held our Company Christmas Party this year at Ale House and I was charged with planning the event and finding the music.  Our Execs had never heard of Chewbacky but trusted my judgement.  These boys brought their A-game…by the end of the event I had scores of Executives telling me “good job!” and many of my coworkers were raving about the band asking ” where did you find these guys?!!  They are Awesome!”  They even bought in on the Ugly Christmas Sweater theme by wearing their own.  I’ve never seen some of my coworkers let loose like they did that night.  It was a major success for all.  Thank you, thank you… THANK YOU Chewbacky!!”

“Choosing Chewbacky was one the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process.  From the very beginning they were accommodating, easy going, always available and willing to cater to our needs.  The band set aside time to make suggestions on songs, wedding flow, etc….which was such a relief for us since we did not have a wedding planner to help with this process.  The day of the wedding they set up early and assisted  my day of planner with carrying down center pieces and light candles -an unnecessary added touch that was so appreciated!  The music for the ceremony, happy hour, and reception was perfect!  They even included songs with my name which was such an unexpected personal touch that made the evening even more special.  The band rocked and were so impressive that I had neighbors come by the next day asking about the music and thanking us for an evening of entertainment.  I would highly recommend Chewbacky for any event you want to your guest to have a rockin’ good time!  You guys truly are awesome!  We will definitely be looking you up next time we are in  Charleston!  Thank you for EVERYTHING!!!  “
