Inspired entertainment at the heart of your event

For over 20 years, Montreal’s 1945 The Band has been recognized as one of the most influential special event performance groups on the scene. Under the direction of industry leader Paul Chacra, the ensemble has distinguished itself with an innovative approach to entertainment–tailor-made experiences with fine attention to detail.


Featuring a dynamic cast of ten entertainers, 1945 knows the pulse of music. Having mastered a wide variety of styles from dance hot to dinner smooth, it has earned the distinction of performing at prestigious fundraising galas, corporate functions, luxury weddings and award shows. The band has also shared the stage with stars including Michael Bublé, David Foster and The Canadian Tenors.

Versatile, engaging and refined,
1945 brings the art of celebration to life.
