When Emily and Ben were planning their Chicago wedding, they made sure to incorporate important traditions from her home state of Pennsylvania: homemade cookies and premier Pittsburgh wedding band, the John Parker Band! The band was a huge hit at the couple’s rustic chic outdoor wedding and reception at the Galleria Marchetti, an exquisite wedding venue in the heart of Chicago. The evening’s photographer, Olivia Leigh described the reception as “one of the most epic dance parties I photographed this year.” EVERYBODY got out on the dance floor to celebrate with this fun couple. One guest even joined the band on stage during We Are Young, a song the band learned and performed just for the newlyweds, and the bride’s mom shared a family tradition by singing along with the band to New York, New York!


“I had so many people approach me that night, referring to the band, saying “best….decision….of your life”. I might argue that my new husband was the BEST decision, but you and your band were definitely a close second. You far exceeded our expectations!” – Bride Emily



Thank you to Olivia Leigh for sharing these incredible photos of the evening, and congratulations to Emily & Ben!


If you’re looking for a band that makes it impossible not to have a good time at your wedding, contact us today!

Colors of black, white, and red made for an elegant wedding at the Mayfair Hotel and Spa, a unique upscale Miami hotel where Raleigh and Eliot said their vows. The beautiful venue in Coconut Grove features rich architecture and a lush open courtyard – the perfect wedding backdrop! The couple’s ceremony and reception were held just before Valentine’s Day, and they subtly weaved the theme through their wedding style, with red and pink flowers and linens. As a personal touch, each of the guests received a photo frame as their place card, with love-themed images inside. Top Florida wedding entertainers, the John Parker Band, provided the music for the evening, and even Grandma hit the dance floor!


Raleigh and Eliot dance the Hora.



“You’re a true professional, and your timing and the range of music ensured everyone of all ages had a blast. Plus, Kelly and the rest of your team ensured all the planning ran smoothly. Thanks for helping make our wedding so memorable.” – Bride Raleigh


Thank you to award-winning photographer David Murray, who shared some of the best shots from the fun evening:

thumbs_peabody-orlando-wedding-john-parker-band-002Dani invited The John Parker Band to perform at her Orlando wedding to Adam, after seeing (and loving!) the band at her sister’s wedding in Pittsburgh.  As  John is also based in Palm Beach & does Central Florida weddings a fair bit – he was quite happy to accommodate!

Her sister’s reception had been at the Omni William Penn in Pittsburgh, and Dani and Adam’s wedding was in Orlando at the one of the largest & highest level of luxury service hotels,  The Peabody Orlando

Gaby of Eventfully Yours helped oversee this amazing wedding which was, by the Peabody,  coordinated & overseen by the very talented & professional Juan Guzman.   Flowers were provided by Greenery Productions, while David of A Magic Moment captured the images and video of the event, and The John Parker Band performed & emceed in the fun yet classy way they ALL wanted!

as Dani and her mom both said to JP after the wedding; “…you and the band were just SO great! …”  & “EVERYONE raved about you and the band and I think you could tell how much fun we all had by the fact that there were people on the dance floor ALL NIGHT “
