Exceeded our expectations for our Oktoberfest party! Great music, great job!!!
We will definitely use Chuck again next year!
We saw his post on Craigs list under "Musicians" when we began planning our party! How happy we are that we discovered him!! Reviewed his website and liked it very much--so much information there! Went to see him perform locally at The Recipe Box restaurant during a Sunday Brunch in Bradenton Florida.
First impression that Sunday was wonderful!!!! We even went again to hear him just for fun one "weeknight" evening and arranged to pick up a contract to hire. He kindly came over to our table and we chatted! Our Silver Anniversary was a special celebration with closest family and friends and every single person who attended, remarked how much they loved his music. Truly loved it!!!
Our venue did not have a dance floor but the music was beautiful and lively and enjoyed by young and old--all!!!!! Chuck Henry gave a European flair to the evening and we had him play for four hours and we provided a tip--we were so happy with his abilities and how he added so much shine to our party of 100 guests. If you want your special event to BE memorable, we highly suggest you allow him to provide the entertainment. The tunes varied, some familiar some not, which was great--- and the sound was pleasing not too loud or too soft. Everyone talked about our party and "that music" for weeks afterwards and still remark about it! His talent is significant and his playing at an event is something unique to experience!! And he even sings here and there which was also quite nice. There is a certain romance to the accordian we think, and he certainly affected everyone in a positive way. You will be so happy to have him play for you!
Cordial, respectful, friendly and reliable. We can not award enough accolades!!! He deserves more than five stars!! Honestly we think everyone should hire him at least once but then you will love it and want to use him again somehow! Glad we can go see him in Bradenton on Sundays as that is what we will do until maybe we can find a reason to have him play again for us.
His rates are very reasonable for a professional musician and we found that he was more than enough. We had considered a duo or trio at first but space limited our options. We are thankful to have hired Chuck Henry for our music and feel he was the best choice for us! We would not hesitate for a moment to use him again if we plan another event. Highly recommend this talented musician!!!!!! THANK YOU Chuck Henry!!! A million thanks to you!!!!!!! Sincerely Catherine and Michael
Response from Chuck Henry and Music:
Thank you Chatherine and Michael for your kind review... I was so honored to play for you both.. a true couple in love... the charm of your planning and the specialness of your even was truely an ocassion for me to remember.
Played a variety of music including German folk and my grandmother could not have enjoyed her 80th Birthday party more!
Chuck was very pleasant. The audience commented on the Italian music he played as well as the volume so that they could still visit with each other and not talk over the music.
He arrived early and played beautifully for my company's Paris themed event. The music was wonderful! Our office can't stop talking about how phenomenal he was. I will definitely be using him again and I would highly recommend him for any event!
Everyone at my party loved the music. Set the tone for a fun evening.
Response from Chuck Henry and Music:

BEST TIME geat job would hire him again
Response from Chuck Henry and Music:
Thank you Michelle
Chuck Henry was the perfect man to play for our Oktoberfest event. He showed up early and was ready to play on time. His lively one-man-band created the festive music for Oktoberfest and he had people singing and dancing. Thank you!!
Chuck was right on time at our Honeywell Retiree’s Club Oktober Fest. He played and sang many different songs on his accordion to the delight of everyone. Many got up and danced. A special delight was when he walked up and down the aisles singing to individuals. He left many smiles on our faces. I would consider hiring him again.

He knew every single song requested! Amazing sound, a full band from an accordion.
