“We have entertainment for our yearly annual meeting weekend and this year’s performance was one of the best if not the best ever. The entire business of booking to follow up to the date of performance were excellent. I am usually conservative with my appraisals but we as a group loved the performance.

“We booked Chester to do 2 shows in our lounge this year for customer Christmas parties and both were very well received by his audiences and our staff alike. Many were left in awe at some of the magic he performed and all were quite impressed with his performances and especially the humor be brought to the crowd. I would highly recommend Chester as an entertainer for your next corporate function/party and have already booked him to do 2 more shows with us again next Christmas. “

Chester was the definition of magical. His performance for our staff Christmas Party was suited for the age groups present. From laughter to awe, he kept our guests attentive and wowed. I would definitely recommend Chester & Jacene for any function, their ability to connect with any type of person is exactly what entertainment is about. Great show for a good cost.

Even though they are able to come up with a new performance, this is one you won’t mind seeing twice!

“I have seen David Copperfield perform in Las Vegas and found Chester and Jacene’s show to be more entertaining and funnier. I cannot remember laughing so hard or being that entertained in years. Looking forward to future shows!”

“Chester and Jacene were a wonderful delight. Both comedic, affable and extremely talented and well paced. The audience were enthusiastic and equally astounded by their skill, entertainment and comedy value. I would gladly pay to see both of them again. I’m still left wondering how he got those three extra cards into my underwear!”

“The magic was exceptional and kept the audience on their feet trying to figure out how Chester accomplished each of his magical acts. He included several members from the audience and had us laughing hysterically. We would be eager to have Chester back to entertain us as he gave us a truly Magical Evening.

“Chester and his daughter Jacene put on a very professional and entertaining performance suitable for the whole family. The audience was wowed by their skills. A variety of people were selected from the audience, young and old alike, to participate in the act which makes it fun to watch. I would definitely recommend Chester and Jacene as an entertainment option for your event.

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 Jacene 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 !”

“Great Show Chester! We really enjoyed your magic and had a lot of laughs. People are still talking about it. Still wondering how you did some of the stuff you did.”

“We had a wonderful experience! Chester was hired to “mingle” during a grand opening party! He catered to everyone from 2 years to 75 years of age! He was a hit! Everyone was still talking about him the following days! Great experience:)”

“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 !”

“Thank You Chester for coming to do the show for us. It was a great show and it was nice to hear people still talking about it the next day, when I was put in charge to find the entertainment I was a little concerned as I wanted it to be good and wanted the crowd to have a good time, but all that went away as you thrilled the crowd and I got a lot of comments on how good the show was so Thank You again.”

“I was looking for “entertainment” for our staff Christmas party and Google brought me to Chester and Jacene. Communication with Chester was great and he was very quick to respond to all my questions and inquiries. The night of the show Chester and Jacene did table side magic for the guests – the guests were all amazed. The show itself was amazing. Jacene was amazing and people were blown away by her talent. Chester put on a great show as well and he made everyone laugh. They both were very interactive with the crowd which was great… Monday morning everyone was talking about the show and how great it was…I will definatley tell others about this and will possibly book them again in the future

“The Performances by Jacene and Chester were wonderful and everyone at the Party enjoyed the entertainment immensely. Thank you.

It is always difficult to find the proper entertainment for a Staff Christmas Party that is not offensive to anyone. We had the Pleasure of having Jacene and Chester the Magician for our recent Staff Christmas Party.Everyone loved it, he included the audience participation and it was awesome. All comments that I heard from Staff were positive and that he was amazing. I would definitely recommend Jacene & Chester for all future events. Highly recommend – great value – great entertainment. Thank you.”

“Chester was a great addition to our evening which was a casual setting where he walked around and entertained the individual tables before the show and had a great rapport with the audience which consisted of a variety of ages and cultures. We had a lot of laughs and were amazed!

“Chester and Jacene were amazing! They were incredibly flexible when the program ran late! Their show was engaging, professional and left all of us wondering ‘how they did that’! Folks are still talking about their favorite parts of the performance. “

“Chester preformed at our Halloween event, Bump in the Night at Government House. He was very easy to work with, adapted his performance to suit our needs and thoroughly entertained both children and adults that attended the event. The audience was totally engaged in his performance, which showed through their reactions and participation. We heard fantastic comments from both parents and children about his performance. His humour during the performance was really what drew the crowd in and kept them engaged. I would absolutely recommend Chester to anyone and we hope to have him back for other events in the future!”

“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.”

“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!.”

“I had no idea what to do for my husband’s 40th birthday. I wanted to throw him a party but wanted to do something different. I searched online & came across Chester’s website.. I emailed him, he replied promptly & answered all of my questions so we booked a date! Chester showed up early & was so professional & well dressed! He spent an hour before his show mingling with my guests, creating balloon animals for the kids & he fit right in. The show itself was mind blowing & exceeded everyone’s expectations…he was phenominal & I would love to have him back again!”

“I should be thanking YOU! Your show was awesome & everyone was still talking about it the next day. I brought you business cards to show my co-workers & plan to give some to my family. I don’t want to promote you too much though because then you will be too busy the next time I want to book you! Thanks again for helping make my husband’s birthday fun & memorable! I just finished filling out your survey & if I could I would have given you 6’s instead of 5’s!”

“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.”

“As a performer you were so very flexible to work with. You went out of your way to accommodate the unique needs of our event while continuing to provide exceptional entertainment. Many participants commented on the amazing magic you performed and were WOW’ed by the professionalism you showed. You were able to engage our customers one on one and the group stage performance was a huge hit with our team. There will continue to be a buzz when the name Chester comes up in conversation. You left an impression on our team. We would not hesitate to contact you again in the future if we are looking for value added entertainment.”
