Chuck was accommodating and flexible in helping me plan a performance for a surprise birthday party gig. Not only was he willing to work with me regarding the rather unusual time for the event, but he also helped publicize it in a manner that helped get the word out to acquaintances of the birthday celebrant without ruining the surprise. Party attendees raved about the band's talent, repertoire and professionalism. Chuck emceed the party and contributed humorous banter that enhanced the event. I would definitely recommend the Chuck Hughes Band to anyone planning a similar party!
