"Great Show!!! Wonderful show with lots of mystery, amazement, fun, and laughs. Jacene and Chester are truly entertainers for the whole family. The Lions Club gives them two thumbs up
. Be sure to understand, these are not amateur performers, but rather professional entertainers.
It is Las Vegas Casino level entertainment.  A don't miss!!"

"Our Lions club was hosting a fundraiser to purchase an AED for the ambulance( cost of around $27,000 ) we decided to have a turkey supper and some entertainment. I suggested Chester, the Entertainer, whom I had seen several times before. We were fortunate to be able to book him for the selected date and we're delighted to learn his daughter Jacene was included in the program. We had a crowd of about 200 which included some children under 10 and quite a few students. We also ran a bar and we were pleased to be told by Chester that we didn't have to shut it down during the entertainment. The show was a huge success raising over $10,000 towards our goal. Chester and Jacene played to every age group and everyone listened and loved the show. It was the talk of coffee row the next morning and everyone agreed the show had been a hit ! I have seen Chester about 5 times and he always has something new up his sleeve (sometimes literally). He brings all his own sound equipment and props so there is nothing to do but sit back and enjoy the show! I would highly recommend this talented and versatile duo for an time of delightful entertainment that is pure magic! "

“August 2015: We hired Chester to perform his magic at Rainsoft's annual company BBQ. Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect, and was a little worried about how a magic show would be received. Little did I know, everyone thoroughly enjoyed Chester's magic, and are still talking about it! Needless to say, we want him back for our next event. What I was most impressed with, was Chester's "street magic." He worked the crowd by performing magic at different tables, for different people/groups, and even for the two fellas outside who were doing the grilling! I hope Chester will take this as a compliment; it was David Blaine quality street magic! Mind blowing stuff and lots of fun for everyone. Some people thought his magic was so mind boggling that he must be an alien! I would not only recommend Chester McBain to others, I encourage you to have him perform. Great value for a very memorable time, and something you should not miss. Fantastic. Feel free to contact me for more details.”





“I would definitely recommend Chester and Jacine to others. They provided a very entertaining show at a reasonable price. They were friendly and professional, and very good at what they do! Our audience was 19 & over, and a church fundraiser. The show was well suited to such a crowd. One gentleman told me he couldn't remember the last time he had so enjoyed an evening out !”

“I would highly recommend Chester for a first rate performance filled with wonder, humour and mystic. We booked Chester for mother in law's birthday party and everyone loved the preshow as Chester worked his magic in the afternoon as he mingled in the crowd. For the birthday gift we booked Chester for the actual performance before supper, and we got our money's worth as this magician engages his audience the entire hour. Show was suitable for all ages. Excellent show.”

“Just wanted to let you know -- that  the Musuem rec'd rave reviews from your  show!  Every age group had nothing but  positive comments! Sure wish I could've been there! “

“Magic is not tricks. Tricks in themselves are not more than puzzles. A trick becomes a mystery, a thing of enjoyment to the beholder, only in proportion to the degree of dramatic interest with which it is endowed by its exhibitor.”

"I hired Mr Chester McBain somewhat unknown to his show exactly. I strictly relyed on the referral of a couple of his fellow colleagues. I'm very glad we followed through on these referrals. Our business has a wide cross section of generations, humours, and styles. Chester was able to work one on one with the audience prior to his show helping to get everyone's attention and set the mood for an enjoyable entertaining evening. We had a group of approx 35 people and Chester was able to keep smiles and laughs coming from all 35 people for the duration of his show. It's also very nice to work with an entertainer that is very respectful, organized and professional right from the hiring through the show as wellas the follow up. I would be more then happy to recommend Chester to any organizaton large or small."

"We celebrated a 50th Anniversary and Chester helped make the event unique and fun. He got to know many of us, performing walk-around tricks and he then did a 1 hour show that blew our socks off. How did he do that? If we needed something to talk about after, we had it. Very professional and polished. Worth much more than we paid."

Doug Thomas

"Dear Chester: Thank you so much for thoroughly entertaining us at my dad, Lawrence Temple's 80th birthday party last weekend! You were awesome! It made the party so much fun. Everyone enjoyed your show and was still talking about it this week. We all got to laugh and enjoy! Thanks again!"

 Sincerely, Laurel Scharfenberg

"Chester put on an outstanding show for my fathers 80th birthday. We had guests ranging from 8-85 years old and there was something for everybody in the show. The magic Chester did was great but the showman ship was even better, he kept the entire crowd laughing the entire evening...the show truly exceeded all expectations and I would highly recommend Chester for any event. Thanks for making our evening so memorable Chester!!!"

Todd Temple

"We have tried different things to improve the attention of our guests at our functions and this was one that went over well. The crowd was excellent, joined in with the AWES as Chester preformed his works. We all enjoyed and those that participated on stage were amazed that they knew no more about how he did the trick than before. He had our attenttion and voices could be heard after "How did he do that", "that's amazing", he's wonderful". Yes Chester, we really enjoyed your performance and you made our 25th Anniversary Party one to remember and talk about for a long time. Thanks again"

"Thank you so much for coming to Grenfell. Your performance was great. You gave us a magical evening.

"Chester the Entertainer provided entertainment for our Daycare's annual fundraiser. Chester's combination of magic and comedy was great and well received by our entire crowd. The audience participation was hilarious and resulted in a lot of laughs. The magic left everyone amazed and we have received many positive comments from our guests! Chester was very professional and we would definitely recommend this show to others looking for an evening of fun! Thanks so much for helping to make our event such a success!"

"We had Chester come out to perform for our steak night fundraiser a couple nights ago. He is full of energy and gets the crowd going. He is very friendly, kind, and easy to work with. I would recommend Chester to anyone. We are still wondering how me managed to do some of his tricks."

Melanie Hawkins

"Chester was extremely easy to work with. I explained what we were looking for and he provided it. We had 170 adults from age 20 to 80 and I heard laughter coming from all age groups. The audience appreciated the table work. It made the event more personable. I had mostly positive comments at the end of it.  Chester was very good about working with us when we didn't start on time and did not make us feel that we were putting him out. It is enjoyable to be entertained by someone who obviously loves to entertain. Thank you Chester and we would definitely recommend you to others."

"Chester McBain - the Entertainer is fantastic! I would recommend him for any function as he adds life to the party with his magic and humerous comedy. Chester entertained at our Christmas party to approximately 90 people. Everyone had great comments on his show! We have had him entertain us twice now, and enjoyed his show both times. Chester is so easy to work with, and very reasonable considering the time and effort it takes to travel and put on a show. Highly recommended!."

"We have not had one bad comment about Chester's show. All we have been hearing is awesome, how did he do that? We even have sceptics that are still trying to figure out what happened during the show. It was truly amazing. Chester was very good and so easy to talk to."

Tina Haluke

"Show was good and everybody liked the performance. We had a 1 hour show and the time passed fast. We would have enjoyed more if we had the entertainment for more than 1 hour.  Chester’s entertainment show was amazing for our year-end event. All of our employees enjoyed thoroughly and would like to have him perform more magic tricks."

"On November 16, 2013 the Town of Lumsden hosted a Medieval Feast. Chester was one of our entertainers. He did various magic amongst the crowd in-between the serving of the food. The crowd loved all of his slight of hand magic and his wonderful personality. Later he highlighted the performance with some stage work; the guillotine with our former mayor and the finale was fire-eating and blowing a flame... very impressive. I would not hesitate to have Chester return to Lumsden."

"Chester performed at a local fundraiser, his performance was extremely entertaining. Overall he was a huge hit."

He concluded the night by eating fire! He interacts very well with people and we are still talking about his tricks!! Thanks Chester! Hope you will come back again in the future!"

"We are so pleased that we hired Chester to entertain at a fundraiser for our community hall . We had a very mixed audience from toddlers to ninety year olds and he managed to appeal to them all. His performance was very professional but so smooth it seemed to be made just for us. It was a great evening, and I had many guests who called the next day to let me know how much they had enjoyed the show. Two different parties wanted booking information for future events. Well done, Chester !"

I have to say what a great evening.
Not only is Chester very talented, but very personable as well; with visiting all tables with tricks, etc.
I would recommend this performer for any and all events including kids.
As a group this morning we are all still talking about the great evening we had and still trying to figure out "how he did this or that"?

Thank You Chester!

"I had hired Chester for the 2012 Natural Ice Provincials in Weekes.
Chester put on a great show and I would hire him again for another event.  I had several comments after the show on how much everyone had enjoyed the show.  Chester kept the crowd going with amazement and laughter throughout his whole show.  I would recommend hiring him to anyone as his show is very entertaining and overall a great guy.
Thank You Chester for helping us make the weekend a great one.
P.S. still thinking about the chain trick"

"Alot of people at the fair commented that your show was a good change from our usual local talent night. It was good to change it up a bit. Some people from Tisdale came out to the fair to visit with you and to see your show. My husband was very intrigued by your `chain through your body` trick. He was one of your volunteers. I heard nothing but positive comments - all of the kids were excited that they got to sit on the stage, and be part of your show.
All aspects of the fair have to evolve and change with the times - including the entertainment. I look forward to inviting you to the fair in future years. We`re already planning for the 100th!
Thanks again for everything!"

"I just wanted to thank you for your performance yesterday and for the inclusion of wellness materials. I met with my students this morning to discuss the Wellness Fair. You were absolutely the favorite of the day. Everyone was amazed by the illusions and with your stage presence.  I think you did a wonderful job keeping the audience interested and they also loved the inclusion of their classmates in the performance.  They would have liked a longer performance so that will be food for thought next time.  Thanks again for being part of our day. "

On behalf of the MarkeTel team, we would like to thank you for an amazing evening.
Your magic show was amazing.  You did a fabulous job in keeping everyone entertained and puzzled.  We are still trying to figure out how you could have done some of those tricks, such as putting the twenty dollar bill in the lemon,escape from the hand cuffs, etc.  I am sure we'll be talking about your show for many years to come.Thanks so much for a wonderful job and a memorable evening for our staffs and family. 
We all tremendously enjoyed the show.
